I'm not familiar with that album, but here's a link to the set list, which I think is pretty close to what we got. If you prefer to be surprised, don't click it.

I've just finished his book How Music Works - highly recommended if you are a muso or music nerd.

So, are we still meeting for drinks this Friday? If so, what time are we meeting and where?

Sorry for the four letter words, I was in a hurry lol.  

 

I have seen them in person, and yes they are waxed to a shine, but I certainly believe they are veg tanned and they aren't corrected grain if that's what you were thinking.  Vince Maloney carry their bags if you want to have a look.  They are a member of the http://www.pellealvegetale.it/ consortium for traditional Italian leather.  While the site says they are full grain, they are not the thickest leather, definitely not bridle.  I contacted them for more images of a particular model and they sent me some.  I would have purchased it if I didn't have other priorities atm.  While some models appear better quality than others, I wouldn't be too concerned about the low price as I've had relatives pick up ladies wallets for not much money in Florence with leather and construction that easily rivalled (or exceeded) bags like Prada.

 

If you want a bespoke bag you could contact Tanner Bates.

 

Let me know how you go, I'm definitely after something similar to you.

All this talk of nice bags is making me fee inadequate. I only have a 50 metre walk from the car to my office and a laptop to lug in, so I must confess to using a crappy, work provided case logic laptop bag instead of something nice. One day.

I note RMW have finally got themselves a proper website, but things still take painfully long to load. A look at their financial statements from last year showed a rather dismal approx $1m profit on $100m sales. Hopefully a better online presence helps them going forward.

Their online presence is disgusting, their facebook has all the life of a wet dog. 

 

Only 2 more weeks until the greatest fight in Australian history. I hope we're all supporting Mundine!

I can highly recommend the light blue Thomas Mason twill bologna stripe which seems to be a bit of a P Johnson house style for shirts.

See here for photographs -

I got one in my first batch of commissions and it is very vertasile (works well for business and casual). It is definitely the shirt I wear most and find easiest to match. The stripe is thin enough so it can appear almost solid blue but is quite interesting close up. I think you will like it. Saying that Tom and Matt will take you through the options and give some good recommendations.

I am sure quite a few things will catch your eye...

Saw 'Gangster Squad' yesterday, and was loving the suits/ general fashion. The gangsters, cops and everyone in between were superbly dressed (1940's).

 

The hats/ style stood out and especially appealed to me: the 'fedora' or 'borsalino' ...couldn't get away with these nowadays, might try to bring 'em back icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

....movie was enjoyable. Storyline nothing special, but lots of great actors who were pretty good, good popcorn flick, made 10x better with the wardrobe (man, I have changed)
