Waiting for new series of my usual faves like next Boardwalk Empire series or Sons of Anarchy.

But then the footie (aka R League) is back so sanity and normality has returned to my life.

Any thoughts on the Ben Barba stuff? Just Episode 64 at the Doggies ho hum deadhorse-a.gif?

Im hanging out for SOA and the new Game of thrones..

Who knows about Barba. Obviously some pretty serious issues though, poor bloke

How do you rate the maple? I love the look on guitars ... ive got Hazel wood i think.. looks ancient

I like that the grain of the maple has depth to it and being scorched, it's darker than regular maple.

 

Did you mean acoustic or electric guitars, Rob?

 

I like the look on guitars but soundwise, I find that maple acoustics can be on the bright side with less bottom end than their rosewood counterparts. I think they look fantastic on electrics (including semi-solids and hollow bodies) with a natural finish.

There was a burst of activity r.e. lacing a couple of weeks ago, and I'd been meaning to canvas opinion on how I lace a few of my shoes. I don't know the technical term, (although if not to your taste I'm sure you'll have a non-technical term for me!).
It puts me in mind of a pair of stitches, which I rather like, the shoe essentially being a bit of skin and all.

That is Roman lacing IIRC. I think it has a quaint feel to it, and probably works best on shoes with a similar old-time/country feel (such as the tan longwings ones pictured). Don't think it'd work on Black Captoes, for example.

interesting. never heard of them. are they better priced there than the other stockists (american tailors/strickland/doublemonk)?

They're known more for their legal wear and English shaving products but worth a visit. I think they're around the same price as the other places.

Fix this for you Mr Nelson.

Thank you, Mr Socks.

 

Truth be told, I don't know how well they're known for they're Henry Carter stock although that situation is rapidly improving. Whenever I mention Ludlows to people, they only seem to know it because they've bought Trumper shaving products there at some point.

+1 for GN's umbrella.

 

I essentially got the same, but I wanted a silver collar engraving.

 

You can buy them straight from Fox Umbrellas if you don't live in Melbourne. They do keep you dry.

Even though my 5 pairs arrived a week or two back, I only opened the box today.

 

Turns out that L is much too big for an 8UK. Packaging states that it starts from 9UK - 9 1/2UK up.

 

Anyone interested? Never worn - BNWT. Can take pictures later. Only looking to get what I paid.

Geez, that's a relief! To think that you thought about making a profit from on-selling!

Question about braces do they work better with forward or reverse pleats?

Or for that matter it doesn't make a difference?

I feel forward sit a bit better, however properly tailored you shouldn't have issues with any of them... Then again I'm a forward man so maybe its just my bias.


Nb: I got to your barber... Did a very nice job.

Thanks for that intelligent response Michael.

I was misinformed and subsequently purchased the socks in the wrong size. Rather than make an issue of it, and as I bought them at a great discount, it'd be great to move them to someone who might have missed out at the reduced cost.

You tried checking prices direct with Fox? You can order whatever combo you like then.. I want a brighter canopy next time

lol - I assume you refer to pantharellas? what pattern/colours did you get ill take some off you (im UK9 and they are borderline OK for me - I think UK10-11 is perfect fit on the large)
