Anyway the most money I've ever spent on a pair of shoes was for my G&Gs, and while it was money well spent, I generally like to limit my budget per pair to three digits - which puts these horny little devils just slightly out of reach:



What are these devils? Vass?

Love eating at cha chaan teng - pretty much all I ate in HK was Indian/Pakistani food and cha chaan teng. Order from the grumpy auntie at the front counter, sit down at the laminate table and get a steaming hot bowl of tasty food and tea slammed down in front of you in a few minutes. None of this upmarket stuff such as staff using iPads to take orders!

I think that there is a niche here - look at Double Monk's success in Melbourne and now in Sydney.

Do many folks here own Christian Kimber shoes?  Any thoughts / comments on the quality?

Several do - have a look at the Christian Kimber appreciation thread started by Melburnian member, Gerry Nelson:

Great to see more peeps up the quality of their fragrance accessories, but keep in mind most of Tauer's stuff is pretty potent, with fragrances like LDDM for example, a light touch and less rather than more is usually the ideal amount to be smelling good without projecting far and wide.

I haven't looked at this thread in about... 2000 pages so apologies if this same question has been asked recently:

Is there a current "most economical" option for wooden shoe trees?

I've recently come into quite a few new paits.

Thanks.

There was some shoe tree talk a few pages ago, with a couple of blokes offering multiple pairs - http://www.styleforum.net/t/518027/australian-members-part-ii-if-you-read-the-first-post-youll-get-what-this-is-all-about/480

how would u rate the ones i got from tauer in your opinion, and is there another cologne you would rate higher? Been looking for a cologne that has a nice strong projection that lasts longer than an hour.

Been using an armani which is just about out, hence my purchase of andy tauer after seeing a mention of it, and ive used a CK in the past, but i found the scent is all but gone in the better part of 2 hours.

So heres the final product of my first bespoke suit by Charles Maimone. Accepting critiques for my refference for future suits. Pants i know are a tad long, might get them adjusted so they dont crumple as much down the bottom but they do ride up quite high already when i sit down. Suits actually a dark navy, colour doesnt photograph well unless in sunlight by the looks of it. Heres a link from my insta to see the actual colour https://www.instagram.com/p/BCcT9XsIL6l/?taken-by=beor_ong

 


Break down of everything there -
Suit (DB, navy, holland and sherry) - Charles Maimone
Shirt (cotton) - MTailor

 

Cufflinks - Swarovski
Watch - Tissot
Leather bracelet - Paul Smith
Tie clip - Paul Smith
Tie - TM lewin
Pocket Square (Silk) - Declic
Shoes - Loake 1880 (Churchill)
Belt - Aquila

Wait, you bought a bottle without actually smelling it first? :confused:
