Johnny Cash wrote song about it and Carl Williams.

I hear the train a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't seen the sunshine,
Since, I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Barwon Prison,
And time keeps draggin' on,
But that train keeps a-rollin',
On down to Old Geelong.

Thanks for the suggestion. Do you know if Gold Toe do over the calf?

They do. There is an ebay seller who sells a lot of Gold Toe, I forget their name, but you should be able to find them easily enough. Should work out to about $10-12/pair from memory.

Well said, fxh, it continues:

When I was just a baby, my mum told me 'Son,
Always be a good boy and don't ever play with guns'
But I shot a man in Newport, just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowin',
I hang my head and cry

I'm dressed rather casually today, in one of Romp's "Owen & James" dark chambray shirts, a pair of beige chinos and a pair of vintage Florsheim longwings.

So, in the absence of a "what am I wearing today" post, I thought that I'd post a shot of my "daily carry" items (thankfully minus my handkerchief and building pass):



Details:

- Credit card wallet by Portland St Leather in 227-year-old reindeer hide;
- iPhone case by Sena Cases (very nice, and they do iPad cases, too); and
- Omega Dynamic.

Love the watch JM! 227 year old Reindeer hide, so that shot way before Bobby DeNiro in DH.

Lovely; here's my daily carry (in the spirit of your post):

Speaking of 'daily carry' items, does anyone here use a key holder/ pouch (leather)? 

I really need a small and simple one but haven't had any success locally (Melb). 

 

Found a few expensive ones @ $80+ (http://www.huntleather.com.au/il-bisonte-extra-large-key-bell.html)

 

But prefer something like this:

 

 

... so would also be interested in any 'leather guys' that might whip one up for me

I have some Viccel and they fit well and seem quite durable but they look a bit dodgy and their colours are fairly dubious. Would appreciate any suggestions.

Mate, try 'Lafite' socks, available at Myer or online. Most are made in Australia and most have a 1 year guarantee! At about $12/pair, that's an absolute bargain.

Ah, yes. The SENA case. I've had one for years. Actually, a couple over this period. I like them a lot. Except, for the past six months I've gone without a case. No screen protector, no case, nothing. I wage that people aren't good at looking after stuff because I've had no cracked screens, nothing. All works fine.

I don't have shots of my daily carry, and I'd rather not cop more shit for my coin purse, haha! Instead, poke fun at what I wore today smile.gif

Hey guys I've wondered how should the arm hole of a shirt fit around your shoulder/underarm?
I'm assuming with minimal extra fabric but I'm not too sure; as my shirt armholes are definitely high but they leave extra fabric on th back side icky armhole (nearest the shoulder blades).

P.S sorry if this sounds confusing :P
