Have just about finished my current tube of Clinique Face Scrub and was looking at the Triumph and Disaster or the Anthony Logistics as a replacement.

Anybody use them and care to comment?

Navy and olive would have been my two choices. Let me know what you find at Pitti. When you come back, we'll have a Pitti party rotflmao.gif

 

Right now, I have the Drizabone Jacana:

 

 

 

as well as a Barbour Beaufort in blue. The Drizabone is fairly heavy and the Barbour has it's own 'fragrance'. I want something a little different. There are some interesting looks here: http://dieworkwear.com/post/22327246041/aspesi-field-specialists

Am liking that Drizabone GN.  Is it newish?  Will have to source one of them for next winter.  Nice touch

Am a recent convert to Aesop products.  I dont use much in the way of 'product', however having picked a few pieces of this up recently from their new shop in Collins Street (near to Harrolds) have been pretty impressed.

Can recommend malin + goetz as well. I've used most of the MensBiz offerings in the way of scrubs and M+G outdoes the lot (even the Urth scrub) IMO.

Meermin Whole Cuts arrived this week from fellow SF colleague.  Have worn Church's for as long as I care to remember, have to say these a pretty good and true to size.  I know several of you here have had some problems with sizing, however, they are good and comparable to my current collection.  This is my first pair of Meermins so am glad to have confirmation of size, now to narrow down the next pair on order.  Anyone else acquired Meermins recently care to comment on their acquisitions?

Funny GF, opposite in our house, the other half still on Clinque, which I found to be a bit ordinary for their mens gear.

Pics would be great if you have the time.

Imagine if there was a real fire, all those polyester ties and rubber soles would create a big stink. The Telstra workforce appears to dress kind of like a Year 10 formal.

The scariest thing was how with no ties everyone looked the same. There were only slight differences in the shade of the shirts from blue to white to light pink. Thought they were going to start chanting 'one of us, one of us'.

Felt fearful for my Henri Carteur tie.

As for Clinique i can still remember the catch phrase in the ad back in 1983. "in sixty seconds this man will change the way he shaves for ever" he did and the ad was in a girlfriends Cosmo.

Still using their shave creme and gel after all these years, mind you Christopher Hanlon in Sydney makes a good shave creme.

Interesting story on online retail here...

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-12-10/j-adore-online-at-50-less-spurs-virtual-sale-down-under.html

A few snippets...

DHL Express operates two dedicated Boeing 777 freight flights a week from Cincinnati to Sydney to ship parcels for FiftyOne’s partner stores, DeSimone said.


“You have retailers that have been fat for decades because they have this market that they completely controlled,” said Will Gensburg, chief executive officer of i-Parcel LLC, a delivery company based in Burlington, Massachusetts, that ships packages overseas for clients such as Amazon.com and Toys R Us Inc. “Now all that’s changed.”

The isolation has long helped Australian retailers and their suppliers churn out fatter profits. David Jones’s operating margin over the past two decades has averaged 5.6 percent, versus 3.1 percent for the comparably upscale Saks Inc. (SKS) over the same period, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
