Just about to don my brown grenadine for a night on the tiles. Going to watch a bit of boxing at a charity event.

A tie? At a boxing match? Boxing? For charity?

 

So many minds blown.

Thanks Plestor, no need to apologise, I and I'm sure the other guys on the thread appreciate your efforts.

Nice boots, and though they are a bit lighter than you probably expected I think you could darken them up without too much trouble if you wanted to. Pebble grain tends to age quite nicely anyway.
Yeah they've already got some variegation (Patina &/or antiquing seems to be the wrong term here) which looks good so I think they'll work out well. My mid brown polish is also a touch darker too.

Very interested to see what you came up with when they come in.

No problem here's a quick/ simple pic that's a good representation. Can post a better one tomorrow if wanted.

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.

 

Sorry, didn't see this before I got there, or back home.

 

Next time, when I'm in Brisbane, or you're here.

 

Had a coffee with Journeyman - top bloke.

thanks for the heads up aussiejake.

Bought these two E.G. Cappelis:





Did I make the right move on the red?

If anyone's a 40R in MJ Bale and interested in a new blue-grey flannel suit, please PM me - I have a new one to sell at half price. Will be putting it up on B&S later but here's a chance to get in first smile.gif

I have absolutely no idea of the quality of these, but anyway, $30 shipped seems reasonable for few cheap dress belts:

^^ they look "cheap" to me in the photos. I'd probably save a little longer and get a couple of nice belts that likely will cost a little more and look better for longer, too. But, I'm not one for wearing belts as all my pants have no belt loops and I'm not one for matching belts exactly to my shoes so I don't have to purchase too many.

Some people rabidly dislike red ties but I think this would look really good with a pale blue shirt and navy / grey suit.

If anyone's interested MJ Bale are doing some pink ties for the Sydney Breast Cancer foundation. Usually I have a hatred of MJ Bale ties and pink but as my mum went through chemo last year I might grab one.

Starting to be happier with my outfits, tell me what you think:

agreed. i think red ties look best with a pale blue shirt, or even a blue and white bengal stripe shirt. have a few similar patterns myself and it's received a few compliments.

I bought a couple at the earlier sale price. Value for money wise I think they are pretty good, better than many of the belts I've tried in the past, though I think TBM's advice is well worth considering. IMO the free shipping is what makes these decent value for money, without it I would be looking elsewhere.
For anyone thinking about purchasing one I advise that you go with the cm measurements and disregard the corresponding inch measurement on the website. I bought a 34 inch belt as I normally would and it was at least two sizes too small but if I'd gone and looked at the cm measurements.....well I should have gone for a 38 inch belt in the first place, even though I usually wear a 34.
