Also, they don't keep a lot of stock on hand (if at all). I don't mind waiting for things when I have to, but for less eccentric commissions, why not just call for a pair of C&J HG?

Hand welting, last choices, etc. I find Vass lasts fit very well to my feet. Nice narrow heels.

I'll vote you in morning when I have a pc rather than this phone

You can vote on both. All Australian Members have a vote or two from me so far as they look much better than those leading the votes. Though I have a strange feeling looking at the top votes just now that a photograph of a well dressed man in a kilt (say in full black tie regalia) could do quite well...

Yes JM as you put it I mean bang for buck in the higher standard of shoes; not meaning that bang for buck overall isn't awesome. Also not looking for vass at the moment but was wondering if any of you have find it feasible ordering from all the way over here in Australia; I myself am still getting the basics so real bang for buck is what I'm used too smile.gif

Because Vass make shoes like this:




[Unfortunately, after wearing these shoes a few times and thinking that they were alright at first, I've come to the reluctant conclusion that they are just a touch too tight for my feet and so I'll probably have to end up selling them and getting a pair 0.5 of a size larger.]

Would love a vote if you think it's worthy -- http://www.mrporterglobalstyle.com/style/melbourne/2786



Great look, TBM.

Is that a Herringbone, herringbone-weave jacket?

I really like wearing mine with a pair of navy trousers, too.

tounge.gif That's a bummer about the sizing. I know that feeling all too well, I did exactly the same thing with a pair of Carmina Simpson.

That album is insanely good and insanely brilliant.

 

Frank Ocean is more poppy but enjoyable.

 

I know Rob's into Biggie Smalls (quality choice).

The problem seems to be gone after my rant. I have posted the following two threads eariler. would like to hear people's thought:

 

"your thoughts on Cartier Watch - Tank series.

 

http://www.cartier.co.uk/#/show-me/timepieces/w5200004-tank-solo-watch,-large-model

 

http://www.cartier.co.uk/#/show-me/timepieces/w5200003-tank-solo-watch,-large-model

 

I am looking for dress watch with leather strap, budget is about $2.5k"

 

 

and

 

"Last time when I picked up my suits from the tailor I saw there were a pile of ties hanging. the tailor told me that he has been doing lots of tie lately, slimming the width and length to give them a more modern look. all by hand of course.

 

I didn't even think of such service existed... have people tailored their tie before? what are your thoughts on this?"

Ah, been there.

 

I was a groomsman for a Scottish wedding (in Singapore), but didn't have the time (or finances) to put together a full formal highland get up. Instead, had to make do with the kilt and a black-tie upper half.

 

I'm trying to dig into the wedding album to see if I can find any pictures, just for shits and giggles.

I am sure you looked fine, trust me I have seen a lot worse. I own the full formal kilt get up with Prince Charlie jacket, ghillie brogues etc, common 21st present for us Scots.

Yeah good albumn. Not 100% into your other choices but I'm more into the Shabazz Places side of the genre.

On TBM's fit. Firstly I like it, however I still lean towards the reverse combination being the strictly superior choice. I'd like to hear thoughts on this if anyone wants to dive in.
