Song has dressed Lupe Fiasco and Kanye before.

I remember when metal garments were all the rage. Here's a pic of me from the '90s:

I know Rob has a child, Charlie has one on the way and FXH said he bought a suit for his kid, anyone else?

No kids for me.. 27, so just a good time to practice, not that I could afford one with my Mrs spending habits anyway

my eBay secret is to have multiple tabs opened up with incremental bids of $5-$10 (as long as it doesn't exceed your utmost max bid) within the last 1 minute of the bid. have the screen ready to just make 1 click bids. and here's the second part of the secret - always add $0.01 on the end of the bid e.g. $5.01 - it ensures if someone has entered a bid similar to yours, you will always be ahead of them due to the $0.01.

 

works like a charm.

Bought a pair of suede shoes earlier this year, didn't get much wear out of them due to weather in Canberra.

Have finally gotten round to give them a spray of stain protector. It has darkened the shoes slightly so wondering do they need a second coat now? Or should i wait a few months?

Many of the suede protector sprays say something on the can about how repeated light coatings are more effective than one thorough coating. Does yours say something similar?

I usually just give my suede shoes a good brush after wearing and tend not to use protector spray on them any more.

Having read the fine print yes, but question is how often? Or will this repeated spraying further darken the shoes?

In my experience repeated application doesn't darken the shoes further after the first spray. What the spray tends to do is make the nap of the suede reflect light more uniformly - at least until you handle the shoes and leave finger marks etc.

TBM and PoP thanks you've clarified the issue for me.

Attention fellow Brisbanites:

Would anyone happen to be free to meet up for a drink or two after work this Thursday, 15 November?

I'm thinking of arranging an SF dinner sometime soon, as our last big get-together was in October last year, but in the interim I thought that it might be nice to catch up for a chat and a drink or two.

Please let me know what you think.
