^ HAHA - his legacy for the Canberrans, I suppose.

I'll probably be up over the weekend of November 24 if any Canberrans want to catch up? Tracksuits optional.

Ah the Chairman & Yip, it was always my first date restaraunt when I wanted to impress (and it always did). Took my wife there for our second date actually, wore double monks and she still married me!

I haven't got all the deets yet, but I decided to start with a conservative two-button suit, made from a nice navy tropical. I opted for natural shoulder and wide lapels, horn buttons and burgundy lining, double vents and flap pockets. Also coughed up for extra pair of trou, they have slightly lower rise than normal, side tabs and big cuffs.

 

Tom is a really pleasant guy to work with, and very skilled.

I see all these guidelines about suits and ties, etc, on this forum. I wear dark jeans and a shirt (untucked) and I still outdress most people in this town! Sometimes it seems so absurd, but then I'm reminded its context, context, context.

One upon a time Mildura was part of my vast empire requiring a two day visit ever two weeks or so.

My first visit was a shock - short sleeved polyester shirts, with tie and tight longish shorts and long white socks and black laceups - that was the senior managers dressed UP fro my visit in a professional environment. The less said about the lesser ranks sartorial endeavors the better.

I did like staying at the Grand Hotel and I was always impressed by the open competitiveness of the motels on the way in - never seen any where else in Australia in my travels.
