Anyway no time for small talk, straight to business.

 

Do any of you wear a barbour beaufort? I've been looking for one to wear casually and over a suit.

 

If so - what have you done with sizing and where would you recommend ordering from?

 

Thanks!

 

I bought a secondhand Beaufort off eBay and didn't size up or down. YMMV and I'm sure others who've bought one recently can provide better info.

Re stretching shoes - there's a few shoe stretchers around on the net - not all that expensive and they can double as a shoes tree.

The good ones have little changeable knobs of different sizes you can target spots on the shoes for stretching. Useful if you have bumps or growths on feet.

I saw some for sale a that Leather repair place in the Arcade in th city - melb - near that barbers shop with shaving products etc.

Go into Mensbiz and get a sample of it also try Interlude Man

 

Got my sample of amouage Journey man today, probably like it more than LDDM, has a nice strong scent... just seeing how long itll stay on me before i make a final call, thanks for the suggestion @Geoffrey Firmin. Is there one you reccomend thats a bit more on the citrusy side of scents? Journey man seems like its a solid all rounder, but im thinking i want something a little more sweet for the warmer months. Aqua di gio i loved, just never lasted nor did it have much silliage. Any suggestions a long that line of scents?

CD is the resident fragrance guru and a fount of aromatised knowledge. As for citrus I favour Penhaligons Blenheim Bouquet EDT

I go to Michael in London Court in the city. Slow, but his work is quality. He may fall in love with you, ymmv.

Amouage is incense. If you like citrus, try Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Aqua Universalis or Cologne Pour Le Matin.

Hi Gents, I'm a long time here lurker on SF, and finally decided to join today. I'm based in Melbourne and I've introduced myself over on the main intro thread, but thought I'd say hello to the local folk. Cheers.

I seem to remember them running fairly accurate but the advise I got years back was to size up to get over your jacket (mine was a 40 when I'm normally 36). So mine bought back in the mid 90s runs baggy..should have got a 38..

Citrus scents tend to be for the warmer weather, and often don't last long. Like you, I like a good citrus. For the colder weather, I look for some combination of citrus and spice, amber, honey etc. L'Artisan's Sevile a l'Aube work well for me, amongst a few others.

Why would I ask a question that I know the answer to?

Do you take me for a lawyer?

(Don't bother responding, have been informed that 'TC' is TBM.)
