^^ I shave it hourly. It tends to grow back within 15 minutes.


I use the Somersets Shave Oil in place of cream or gel.

Im using Neutrogena Sensitive shaving cream, was on sale. Thought i would give it a try, i am pretty happy with it. Moving forward definitely need to keep with the Gels as I've accidentally shaved too short on the beard when using the cream..

Also my GF also got me some Lab-Series moisturiser (non-oil), pretty happy with it since i get oily skin.


I shave my upper cheeks and my neckline every weekday, and usually shave once on weekends.

I tend to trim my actual beard once every 3-4 weeks, but I do trim the moustache area more frequently.

I'll try and talk you into it... I mentioned a few days ago I was surprised at how nice that coat was. Overpriced at $700 but not too bad at $525. I'd seriously consider it myself if I didn't already have a trench coat.

I have to wonder though why HB are having a sale on stuff that only came into store a couple of weeks ago...

I tried it on last night... unfortunately Melbourne store had no 40's in stock. The 38 surprisingly did fit reasonably well. The only thing I am a little concerned about is the length, as it is shorter then what I would call the 'traditional length'. My dad has an old London Fog trench coat that he wore for about 20 years (when I was a kid I used to call it his 'Inspector Gadget Jacket' or 'Detective Jacket'), which was knee length - I recently tried it on in an attempt to reclaim it, but damn the 80's/90's bulkiness was a deal killer (a clear one or two sizes too large!).

No, I ordered it before I saw the new shop on Collins. I stopped in there the other day though--worth a visit. Kind of 'solid if unspectacular'.

I have one of these. Knee length in navy. Is (outrageously in my opinion) referred to by some uncouth people as the 'dirty old man' jacket.

Thought you guys might find this funny... this is an email I just sent to the guy I got a MTM suit from a little while ago:

How much for another pair of pants identical to the last set I got (the navy pinstripe)?

 

 

Had a bit of an incident at an awards ceremony on Saturday night after a few too many drinks and I’ve managed to ruin one of the knees beyond recovery.  Apparently after the better part of a case of wine I’m overly susceptible to attractive women making ridiculous suggestions (like sliding across a dance floor).

This might say more about you than the jacket though.

RM,

It sounds as though you had a very good evening - I just hope that the hangover the next day wasn't too bad!

Hopefully, there will still be some stock of the fabric available and you'll be able to get another pair of trousers made up.

By the way, I liked your photo of the bar jacket etc the other day and I hope that you do very well at the Tasmanian bar.
post #29350 of 51896

Thanks mate, much appreciated.  I spent most of Sunday just trying to avoid bright lights.

 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they have some of the fabric left.

 

I'm just nearing the end of my pupillage now (they brought in a 2 year pupillage in 2010/11 for new young barristers), it's going well so far!

Today (Click to show)

Jacket: PJ
Shirt: R&B
Tie: Henry Carter
PS:E. Marinella
Trousers: Benjamin

Shoes:C&J

If you're wearing paisley today to gain my approval you've succeeded ;-) I think this is a well balanced outfit in terms of texture; the PS adds some interest without overpowering the rest of your look. The jacket looks like dark grey on my screen but I'm assuming it's navy?

Yes, if you are a 40 I would probably look for a 40 rather than go for the 38... They are meant to be a little loose, but also the size up might give you some extra length as well.

I don't see much practical difference in rain protection between knee length or thigh length - both are "3/4 length" and for most situations will be ample. The bottom of your trousers will get wet with anything short of a full length coat and gaiters if the weather gets bad enough. That's not a very stylish look though obviously; it's all about finding a balance between looking good and keeping dry. Also, longer trench coats can be awkward on public transport etc. as when you sit down all of a sudden you resemble the speigeltent.

My navy one is above knee/below thigh

 

Id actually not size up - a good trench will have some shape and fit well and still give movement on top of your suit. Too often I hear wives tell their husbands to size up and they end up looking like Columbo

 

here's a crud phone pic from last year - Jase - take note im wearing your scarf:)

Anyone know where the trench coat is made?

Gezza,

 

Which dates will you be in Singapore? I'm flying back between 9-14 May. Trying to see if I can catch you there over some grub.
