Actually lots of people buy bike frames and gear on net. I suspect that Wiggle may have been thetrojan horse for Internet shopping in oz.

Bikes actually lend themselves well to online buying. They don't go stale, or melt. Are robust. Bikes brands are really frames with other stuff added on customized. Or bespoked. So buying yourself the components is just what a bike shop does. Assembling is no big deal if you have time. Brakes, tyres, bars, rims, tubes, mudguards,handlebars, gear wheels, shifters etc are usually all different brands.

But the tweaking and adjusting and servicing and getting special stuff on is best done by experts. Your local bike mechanics.

These are mine.

1). I love the 11028 last - not too pointy, not to round.
2). The mahogany does appear a little lighter in sunlight. I have worn them with grey and blue suits but tend to wear C&J 'Dark Brown' Hallams instead (conservative workplace...)

Hope that helps.

Hi kickstart,

 

Just wondering what brand and color polish (presuming you use it) do you use on the C&J Hallams? I have a pair of C&J Westbourne in dark brown which seem to be a similar if not the same color... Just looking for some inside running.

 

Cheers

Shoes really confuses me. They need to be seen in person to actually get a proper view of the last. Then you have to look at it from all sorts of angles. They just never seem the same in the photos...


And does anyone know where I can find a pair of moccs like these:

In burgundy/wine suede for under 100 dollars?

Received an email from A Fine Pair of Shoes saying they have shipped my shoes.

After reading the articles on the AGE and SMH yesterday about the changes to the paper shifitng from broadsheet to tabloid and now Gina Rinehart has 18% of Fairfax the 4th estated will now be nothing more than an ideological soap box in this country.

I fear that one of lifes simple pleasures reading the paper over breakfast is about to go the way of the dinosaurs. I know that I can read online but honeslty the Fairfax sites are shit compared to other major global news papers and its the tactile expericne of reading that I enjoy.

The only good read in the Age is the Green Guide anyway the Fin Review is a more fun read. I knew The Age is rubbish like the Sun anyway, found that out 10 years ago. The Australian should be of higher quality but it's also a snooze fest.


Just got my cleaning back from Elite in Galleria. Mostly a good job. I got some roll back with my lifeless lapels again so very happy with that. But they chipped one of the MOP buttons so not so happy with that. They're $9 a piece so don't know whether that's cheap.

Great news everyone! Brooks Brothers having a sale again. Checking out the Black Fleece items. Is it me or has BB prices gone up a bit? But this little item looks rather interesting: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=720&Product_Id=1516650&Parent_Id=711&default_color=WHITE&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

Yeah you should all be starting to receive them today (all were express posted). For those guys I"m still waiting on payment from, would be appreciated if you could fix that up in the next few days. I'll send out reminders tomorrow.

I will also announce the competition I'm running with the ties later tonight.

When Daisy first presented the poncho to me, I truly thought she had overpaid. How much better could it be than the Bulldog-emblazoned poncho I had purchased at a recent rainy Yale-Dartmouth game. But when I first broke out the Brooks Brothers poncho during the rainstorm that hit our July 3 celebration, I felt full on the difference. Whereas the unlined Yale poncho had left me feeling sticky with my own perspiration, the BB poncho left me dry and did not hamper my movements in any way. Further, the military rank motif (both enlisted and general officer) provided an appropriately patriotic look for the occasion. Lastly, the color went much more appropriately with my linen jacket and lobster shorts than the Yale Blue.

 

Just what you need.

I predict the rise of the very large weekend paper or magazine when they/we realise that the online papers will be expensive to access, hard to read quickly, full of screen sized bites and archives will be blocked.

Certainly the daily dead tree paper is finished. Not the least because they are shallow in any analysis and context, limited in subjects deemed worthy of being news, and generally 12 – 24 hours out of date.

I’m happy to get my “news” what ever that is, off radio, tv and their associate web site and my analysis, and my big stories and roundups, say for $5 or more, off a big set of dead tree weekend papers, something like a cross between Friday Fin Review and sat/sun age all rolled into one. Plus a bit of subject focused analysis off a few web sites.

Daily Newspapers as they are are too slow to get news out in the day of radio everywhere, TV 24/7 and net backups to both.
