BB are only worth getting at one of their major sales also you have to consider that the charge a flat $50 fee to ship to Oz

I have a question for the shoe experts around. I recently bought a pair of C&Js from the American Tailor sale. I haven't owned C&J before but I have owned AEs, Loakes and Meermins.

The issue is that the top layer of the sole seems to be peeling off at the toe. I've never had this issue with any of my other shoes. Is this going to be a problem going forward? Is it an easy fix for a cobbler or is it something I should be returning them over? Here are the pictures for reference:

If this means I am a scab, I wear the badge with honour.

In all honesty, unlike DB, I wasn't breastfed until I was 30. $20, $30, $40 saved here and there can be the difference between there being food on the table and there not being food on the table. A decent bottle of vodka (wednesday night's meal) is about $30. So forgive me for pushing the envelope a little bit.

My dignity has gone up 10%... BTW your still a scab smile.gif

Temporary?

On clothes down in Canberra now so I'll have to say hi. Went to Joe's for those blake shoes, seemed very good, will post more when I get them back (include a self addressed prepaid).

Got some old blue co jeans recently and really enjoying them.

Shipito pretty much removes the shipping problem with BB...

Can I ask a newbie question?
Well thats one question already.

Although it may come as a shock to some of you, I am not in favour of wearing a tailored jacket, or any jacket really I suppose, without a proper shirt collar or at very least, not for me but others, a polo collar.

However I see lots of people, men even, although mainly boys and women,, wearing tailored jackets, mainly orphaned suit coats from what I can see, with V necked (shudder) or crew necked T shirts.

In my mind its an incredibly grubby thing to do and I can only imagine, and I've sometimes actually seen the grimy layers, the layers of sweat, grime , dust and city dirt that accumulates on the jacket collar. With women its even worse with some caked makeup. I've never been in just that right social situation (unlike Craig Thompson) to ask a heavily made up woman. (Partly because I don't have much to do with heavily made up women)

Those of you who have tried this - and I'm assuming a small minority have - can you tell me how you handle this problem?

Dry clean after every wear??

Pretend it isn't a problem??

I have done polo collar with my cotton sport coat but I agree it's gross have neck on suit contact. Mainly I've seen guys do this for "fashun" and it's usually a cheap jacket

But I doubt these people think or care about the grubbiness

Don Johnson never had this problem.

I think that's because it was trendy to wear your shirt collar over your jacket collar back in those days...

I'm off to Macedon Ranges on Sat. Any recommendations from those who've been there before? Particularly green thumb interests? Dicksonia Nursery is already on the top of the list.

Count me as a supporter... I was actually thinking of commissioning one of these when the PJ crew next rolls in to town.

I do it with my Puma runners, shorts and my Futurama tshirt. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

In all seriousness, your stuff is already pretty dirty if you wear your stuff anywhere in public, sit down on any chair, rest your arms on anything. I always wear a collar shirt with my tailored stuff anyway for comfort.
