Can vouch for Crossfit (Tenacity in Adelaide), especially some of the benchmark workouts, Cindy in particular. Who would have thought you could be so exhausted after 4 minutes of exercise...

I've been going for the last 18 months after doing a great deal of running. Great way to mix things up and get off your legs.

Not wanting to get into a 'who's the fittest' debate but the Crossfit Games are coming up. It's worth taking a look as they are some amazing athletes...

You probably don't need Topy, when you have the luck of the Irish on your feet.

 

They look excellent!

Just want to clarify, is the above picture what one of these in natural looks like in a few years time? http://www.huntleather.com.au/il-bisonte-6cc-billfold.html

If so, I think I'll have to buy one.

zzz. i they arrived over a month ago so there is no chance of an exchange. does it need to be fix and if it does, how much will it cost?

 

Can't imagine it'll have any ill effects, but it should be easily fixed by peeling the layers apart and regluing them, and then recolouring the edge. Wouldn't be more than new heels, so ~$20?

Shoe's 1 month old should not be doing that, so I'd say you should have every chance of an exchange.replacement. Seems Meermin's quality control issues are popping up more and lately, think they may be growing to fast or they are spending too much time buggering around with MTO group buys and not focussing on the RTW stuff. In any case, it's worth emailing them some decent photos and at least see what they say.

Help, anyone?

 

Kent Wang has one, but not in a British Racing / 'Jaguar' green: http://www.kentwang.com/knit-bicolor-lime-green.html

 

 
And he also has a green grenadine: http://www.kentwang.com/grenadine-green.html

These arrived today. 

They're from Robinson's Shoemakers in Northern Ireland.

It was a bit of a wait, as they had some production problems, but the final product is very good.

I ordered these when they had a sale, so I actually only ended up paying about $300 delivered. Bargain, I reckon.

You are all very brave ordering shoes online without trying the brand and last on (I assume)....

The other dimensions are ok, I think. Thighs are a bit tight (but there's always a bit of stretch I think), but everything else seems fine.
Not as soft as my OJ Chinos, unfortunately.
Also: MS, not sure whether I'd have to pay shipping xlots, I assumed so, but we'll see.
Looks to me that you might get 2" to let out around the waist band. There is also room to let out the bum or crutch - that might ease up the thighs too. A good tailor can let out the actual waist band with an extra bit of material as it will be covered by the belt. Sometimes, for me, its literally only the waist band that needs letting out not the seat. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm still surprised there isn't a reasonable tailor up around Mildura. Ask Stefano or ask around at the Grand. A good reliable seamstress will be able to do those alternations without any trouble - its teh same as for womens skirts and pants. Go to someone who knows their stuff - maybe one who does a lot of weddings - they sew like crazy.

Yes, I've made my fair share of mi$take$.

 

But sorted now, I think.

Hah, I used to love that show. Good post.
post #25905 of 57932

Anyone know how much it costs to ship a KW suit back after getting the RTW? His postage is like $30 to Aus. Safe to assume it's the same back? With his offer of 'if it doesn't fit, send it back and we'll make it fit' - it should be free, I think. But, alas, I haven't heard any bad reports.
