speaking of virtual clothes horse, I've been longing to get these couple of pair of shoes for so long:

Especially the Settantatres. That is made on one of my favourite lasts and wont mind having entire shoe collection to have that last.

Hi Guys a few options for discussion below, click to see in full size. I've just mocked up on the back where the tipping would be a) because im in a bit of a rush and b) because i'd like to get some feedback on the colours and logo options. I'll mock up on the back blade when we get a bit more advanced with this.

I'm also waiting on a bunch of swatches for next season which will have some good ones we could do and I'll post some photo's when they arrive in about 3-4 weeks. Whatever we choose I'll likely not do in the mainline to keep it exclusive to us. We could do a grenadine as some suggested, but it would need to be tipped and have the embroidery on the tipping, if it's to be on the blade it has to be something that will embroid well like a twill.

I'm up to 8 people interested, so we need another 2 now. I have PM'd Coldeyedpugilist as he's been off the radar for a few days and hopefully he will be 1 more.

Lastly anyone interested in the grey cashmere knit, I will be receiving 4 more slightly tweaked pre production ties in the next 3-4 weeks. 1 will be for me of course but I'll offer up the other 3 to whoever is interested when they are in, but of course feel free to register interest as a few already have. Full production of this tie should be here july at latest.

Without further rambling -

I like the burgundy with the map design, myself.

Also keen on the cashmere knits when you get them.

Hey Aussies,

 

Just a quick heads up - I received my order of Viccel socks last week (~2 weeks shipping) and handwashed 2 pairs this arvo. Very glad I went that way as I discovered that the wine coloured ones aren't colourfast (the other pair were purple and didn't colour the water).

 

All up though, they seem like fantastic socks

Hey CW, just a thought. Could you inlay the text in the australia map, kind of line this? Scuse the image editing, MS Paint has its limits...

Nothing special compared to some of the ballers around here, but I was pretty happy with them, especially the readings for like $130.

No no no no no no -- sorry but I think the flag/map idea for the member's tie is horrible. So bogan biggrin.gif

What I propose is a little emblem based on the wattle, which is Australia's floral emblem. This would be subtle, pretty, and actually look good even to the casual observer. I'm not a graphic designer, but I imagine designing something like this would be a piece of piss for someone who does it for a living.

Actually, I'd prefer a Southern Cross. On the front of the tie. Woven in ecru, on navy grenadine. Cool?

No, in all seriousness, I think Tobias raises an interesting point. Wattle emblem would look really nice/tasteful if designed well.

Agree with all of this.

On that theme, why not have Ned Kelly's helmet as an emblem? ;)

Same. Sprig of wattle in silhouette would be nice. Don't think it would need to specifically reference SF - but if the consensus was to do this, a more subtle way would be to 'stack' SF or even SFAM like, say, the Carlton insignia...

Positioning on the front of the back blade would be best, because you could decide to have it partially visible of entirely obscured depending on how you wear the blade.

A plain bugundy grenadine (or something like that) is both wearable, but also unusual in AUS, so it would be distinctive (which is what you want in a club tie - ie so you can recognise other members). A repp would also work, of course.
