It isn't too big. It weighs about 800g. It can fit into a satchel.

 

With tracking, to Norway, it is very expensive $80+. With tracking to the States, it is only about $35.

A package arrived today from the Armoury containing a pair of the Carmina Simpson, just in time for Christmas. I'm really impressed/surprised by the quality of these things! nod[1].gif

 

Good thing the world didn't end yesterday. happy.gif

 

Happy Xmas to all.

^nice pick ups on the shoes and the suit

 

The sole edges on some of my shoes are getting ugly and am wondering if you guys use sole edge dressing or regular polish to bring the colour back to worn edges?

In my experience, regular polish/conditioner works fine. It's still leather. Edge dressing just seems like a wank to me.

Try www.ship2anywhere.com.au - $57 with DHL - tracked and delivered within 2 days.

 

In other news - played around with our white popover with a jacket at home tonight (yup bored waiting for santa). Im going to test run wearing it in a few ways over the holidays for a photoshoot in the new year. We are out of stock in most blue sizing now and white is very limited. Given the higher than expected demand we will do a re-order in January and also expand the fabrics. Open to suggestions on what fabrics would be good in a popover.

Thanks Rob - I just checked and it certainly is the cheapest thus far.

I like the god quality military/RMW style free belt they give out with the shorts.

I pretty much live in them on weekends during summer, along with a pair of (sockless) boat shoes or canvas sneakers, and a polo shirt or OCBD shirt with the sleeves rolled up. I've also got a few linen shirts from Land's End and from Uniqlo that get quite a bit of wear.

I agree on the shorts from LE and will be a wearing a pair today. Very well cut and comfortable and different colours.

As for the LE Irish linen shirts. Very impressed - especially as you get correct sleeve length (if left after sale) - and cut and made well.

I am waiting on a couple more that have been held up in the mail along with some other Xmas presents!

The more you wash them the softer they get and with Irish linen they will last for years.

A cool Yule and Happy New Year to all Aussie compatriots.

There is someone that is wanting to buy, but postage to Norway is an arm and a leg.

Great pick up JMills, feel free to post a snap!

What shoe in the Simpson range did you haul?

Cheers

I don't mean to blow Jason's trumpet but, when I bought my HC ties, he gave me a pair of ribbed Pantherella socks. When they arrived I was most skeptical. They are wafer thin cotton socks. I thought they would quite literally disintegrate after one wear.

 

Anyway, I had also bought some 'cotton rich' socks from Myer. After about 4-5 washes, the Myer socks have started to 'pill'. The same number of washes for the Pantherlla socks has had no effect on the sock at all. The ribbing is still 100% new. It is quite incredible.

 

The only problem is, I am a big fan of thick socks. Pantherellas are anything but.
