Sorry Robert, this blew out of context.

 

At times I have been gushing in how much I like some of your pieces - that has been genuine. Your P Johnson suits, pocket squares, shoes, shirts and loafer combinations have been excellent. In fact, where I can afford it, I have tried to get some pieces from the same brands. If your objective was not to inspire, than I don't know what it is. This appreciation has lead to a disastrous forum joke.

 

I did however, err at the pop-overs. So it isn't completely lob sided.

 

What I should have said was: it will be interesting to see what you wear these Nikes with and how you wear them. You generally post information and pictures about suiting related material - hence the surprise.

 

My apologies.

I'm in NZ.

 

Girls are pretty here, and it's cold enough to wear real clothes.

My main thing is I'm looking at the Loake Buckingham as a mainstay which doesn't seem to have a dainite version frown.gif
Those Loakes quoted look like my Carmina captoes. Anyone know how they fit? I need some new Dainites (im anti-topy and yes i refuse to topy and no I dont want a debate)

Just copped these AirMax 90's yesterday for the SW&D fans.. the menswear fans can eye-ball one level of the brown side of my shoe rack in the background  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Here's some stock pictures of the Air Max 90s that show the colour a little better:

I got gifted a Bulgari 7-fold recently. Beautiful tie - bit expensive at retail though (checked out the Bvg. boutique on Castlereagh at lunch a couple days ago), at 300 bucks roughly. I wonder if there's anywhere you could find 'em cheaper... 

I've got a couple of Bulgari ties that were presents from my wife and they are lovely ties - a bit flashy, perhaps, but really beautiful silk and excellent construction.

You can pick them up more cheaply on the 'Bay from time to time, and Bulgari also has some patterns/colours on sale from time to time. I've seen them as low as $130 (I think) in the Bulgari concession, and you can get BNWT (brand new with tags) Bulgari ties on eBay for $100 or perhaps even less - just make sure that the seller has good feedback etc.

Showing my age, perhaps, but I had a pair of those Air Max III sneakers in high school, along with a pair of Air Max Triax shoes, a pair of Huaraches and a pair of Nike ACG Mowabbs. The Mowabbs and Huaraches were great - the best activity sneakers that I've had until Nike brought out the integrated-sock Free 3.0 shoes a year or two ago.

Neither of the Air Max sneakers were so good - for some reason the foam soles on both the Air Max IIIs and the Air Max Triax sneakers started to disintegrate in less than a year and the gas leaked out of the soles.

Thanks for the info =].

 

Yeah the Bulgari range is quite varied - there are some very flashy/loud patterns and some very nice loud-ish colours with elegant patterns (these are the ones I quite like). Here's my one - I fondly refer to it as the lil' alien pattern:
