Seriously I think you need to change your meds. JB is a harpy.

You have high standards Geoffrey, I like that.

To those at the HC trunk sow tonight; you lucky bastards! I went past Ludlows at lunch today and thought about stopping by to see what HC goods he had out on display. Regretting it now. 

So post up pictures asap please iGents!

I was hitherto unaware that Journeyman and I weren't the only lawyers here. And Oli, for that matter.

There is no sex appeal in Australian politics. Probably better that way. 'Politician hot' is like 'office hot' but without even the outside chance of a cheeky wristie in the copy room...

P.S. Nabil: Freehills' office is shit. One of the worst buildings in town, built for the '88 Expo. Really.

Failing lunch, how about a drink after work? We can take you to the Bavarian Beer Cafe. It's just like Sydney but with river views. Or something.

Few questions:

1) What books would you lot consider the essentials on menswear? I have Flusser's 'Dressing the Man' and Manton's book but I wouldn't mind some more. 

2) Do I want the ultra or combination shoe tree from woodlore?

3) For my first oxfords do I want meerkats or loakes?

 

Ty :D

As spoken by Dick the Butcher. Any butchers here.

But the prize for the best lawyer bash belongs to Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

He saw a LAWYER killing a Viper
On a dung-heap beside his stable,
And the Devil smiled, for it put him to mind
Of Cain and his brother, Abel.

Not sure about shoe trees from Woodlore but plenty others can chime in on them.

As for books. One of the best book I have ever read (not just on menswear) is The Englishman's Suit by Hardy Amies. I was raving about it to Lennier at the HC Trunk Show this evening (fxh said his other books are well worth it too).

Gentleman by Bernhard Roetezel (sp?) is really great and I refer to it a lot.

Details: Manual by Daniel Peres is a simple overview which is quite good.

James Sherwood books on Savile Row and London are glamourous reads.

I have a stack of others (still keen to order Fuckyeahmenswear by Lawrence Schlossman (sp?) and Kevin Burrows and a very interesting book I have seen around call Power and Style or something - about how power and clothes have worked together throughout history).

I would recommend Hardy Amies book and Gentleman first.

Look forward to what others recommend.

FYMW was a waste of time and money, you can have my copy if you're willing to wait.

i bought the Ralph Lauren coffee table book yesterday - its thick and has glossy photos. What I like most is the plastic book jacket so if I spill coffee on it I can wipe it straight off

I remember the leather bound special edition version printed in limited quantities - content is identical but the way it was presented was just beautiful smile.gif

Nice one, Romp.
