We Sydney folk are just far to busy making money to waste time, you know, socialising! Time is money!

Although... I have met the ColdEyedPugilist and can report that he is a thorough gentleman (and not nearly so violent as his alias would suggest)

Pens...I've had a few, but then again, too few to mention....but I will mention them anyway. I have three which I use - I just grab one in the morning and stick with it for the day. I have a Mont Blanc, a Lamy al-star and a Graf von Faber Castell (which I think has the best nib). Somone mentioned Sailor pens a while back. I have tried a few and the nibs on those are superb - if I get another pen, not that I need one, it will be a Sailor.

They haven't been worn, at all, and he is happy to let them go for $150 delivered to anywhere in Australia or $140 pickup in Melbourne.

 

The model is the Oxford, black, wholecuts in size UK10.5

I'll happily take those off your friend's hands, given I have probably just written off a pair of black shoes in yesterday's storm.

PM me and we can arrange a pickup, if they're still going.

Balls. Missed them.

Just got back from work; wore my HEAVY weight Luxire shirt to work (against better judgement) and feel like my back had a shower T_T

Should've ordered the linen; buying 3 now!!!

P.S.

Tomorrow in Melbourne is gonna be hell!

Many thanks to JM for the tie advice and others who weighed in RE - the linen shirt. I ended up getting these two ties;

Cornflower blue silk knit
Light cornflower blue with coral stripe silk knit

We'll see which one goes well with the suit on the day. Also picked up 3 white linen pocket squares, 1 with with navy edges, 1 with cornflower edges and the other with yellow edges. I think the yellow edged white PS would provide a good contrast against the navy suit and work well with either of the above ties.

Not to rain on your parade, but I personally found thetiebar's knits to be far to thin and insubstantial and don't wear mine at all.

Will be interested to see your opinions on them.

Any Sydney folks want a nice merino or cashmere sweater, head down to Jac + Jack sample sale. Great basic tees and thick knits too

46a Macleay Street, Potts Point

Fri - Sun

Tell your Mrs too as they love this stuff

So not sure if anyone saw this or is interested, but Aus Post has essentially rendered their parcel lockers useless for 95% of online shoppers:

Quote:
As you may be aware, Australia Post is adding more 24 / 7 Parcel Locker locations across Australia following the success of its recent trial. We are now in the process of establishing an extensive network of Parcel Lockers at 250 locations nation-wide over the next two years.

From 1 January 2013, only parcels which are sent using Australia Post or its subsidiary, StarTrack will be delivered into our Parcel Lockers. Carriers who choose not to use Australia Post or StarTrack to send parcels into our Parcel Lockers have been advised to contact the sender or customer to organise an alternative delivery address.

For information about what happens when a parcel addressed to a Parcel Locker is sent using another carrier, please see the FAQ Can carriers other than Australia Post deliver parcels to the 24/7 Parcel Lockers?.

Where possible, we advise you to check online which shipping provider or carrier is delivering your goods, to ensure your parcel can be delivered to your Parcel Locker address.

The terms and conditions of the Parcel Locker service have been updated to reflect the processes applicable to Parcel Lockers. To read the updated terms and conditions, please click here.

We trust you will continue to enjoy the convenience of using Australia Post’s Parcel Lockers as we add more locations around Australia in the coming months.

I like the three I have (rust, kelly green and red) and fxh wore one that looked pretty good. Still they are definitely in a different class to Henry Carter, Drakes or High Tied BUT they're also at a different price point. They're fine for what they are.

You win. Stay cool.

I'll be in the Mallee for Christmas. Sure hope it cools down a bit by then.

I currently own a few of their ties, one of which is a silk knit. Whilst I most definitely agree that their knit ties are quite thin and pretty poorly woven together, for the price they are acceptable. They also ship quite fast which is really all that I am after as I've left this a little too late.

If I had more time on my hands I would have chose another maker, however for this occasion they will fit their need. Ties are something that I don't spend a lot on (HC members tie is the most expensive I've ever bought). Whilst I appreciate the skill in making a tie as well as the fabric used, it's just an item I have an issue paying a lot for. I'd rather get a few cheap ties and spend the rest of my money elsewhere.

Owen & James just signed up with Parcel Point - only in Syd/Vic at this stage but allows customer to return via convenience stores and if popular we will allow delivery to a Parcel Point location which are a bunch of 7-elevens and convenience stores that open long hours.

I know that UPS utilise this same parcel point pick - up service. I must admit it is mighty convenient being able to swing past at 11pm at night, rather than try and fit in with Australia Post who open at 9:01 and close at 4:59.

Hi Gents,

I'm probably breaking an Aussie SFer code of conduct but here go's.

My wife asked me are their any good online female shoe stores, she is after new Espadrilles, and is a fan of all European made shoes. So l thought maybe WAG's of ASF might know of a couple.

Thanks guys and man it's balmy here, humidity ridiculous.

BTW Perused WIWRN thread its a blood bath!
