Don't know about Marx, but the sports players seem to be taking all the opiates off the masses.

Also, in regard to question two, do you mean polarised? As in, the lenses?

If you want a dark grey suit look at the MJ bale mudgee.

How come you wanna wear sunnies indoors? Or do you mean as glasses? Have you heard the saying "only rockstars and arseholes wear sunglasses inside"?

 

Yours was one of the ones I had in mind! I saw these on ASOS for $30 and have been tempted to grab them:

I've got the Mudgee. It's nice, but having darker features I find that the mid grey makes me look washed out compared to say the Armidale.

Does anyone here have Alden shoes on the Aberdeen last?

Should I go a cotton or a wool? I was thinking of grabbing a marle and light red cotton from Asos, more for fun than anything. 

Looks like a Drakes cashmere sleeveless vest

I prefer cashmere & wool over cotton

If the two options seem roughly equal to you overall, the new opportunity is probably in reality better, as status quo bias causes us to irrationally overvalue the things we currently 'possess'. Plus, changing shit up is just a more interesting way to live.

Went to a get-together with the local Basenotes crowd today. We were very fortunate to be joined by Steven Broadhurst, founder and creative director of an Australian niche fragrance house called Tommi Sooni. Steven has worked as a fashion photographer in the past, including in Andy Warhol's studio. Tommi Sooni is all about creating unique high-end Australian fragrances that showcase the scents of Australia, such as boronia, mimosa, lemon-scented eucalypts etc. He brought along samples of his latest, Passarelle, which had all the ladies there swooning. (Mothers Day gift, maybe).

Tommi Sooni has a couple of unisex EDTs, which are really EDP strengh; Steven said if he labels something Parfum, men won't buy it. Sadly, he can't get Australian stores to stock his Australian product, and has to sell it in NY and Europe. You can get it online at http://www.tommisooni.com/

Steven is a really nice guy, and trying to do exactly the kind of thing we like to see here. I plan to buy one of his colognes as soon as I can decide which one.

I just got back from the mountains this arvo, absolutely rooted now. Had a great time and got 2 really big brown trout (it's spawning time) at about 4-5 lb each.

It was -10 last night. Coldest I have ever been in my life, current camping record stood at -5. That, and the wild dogs you could hear up across the plains meant an almost sleepless night for me. Still, bloody good time.

You're like Bear Grylls, but better because you sell nice ties 'n stuff.

Me: I'm in the office having a quiet James Squire Stowaway IPA, listening to ABC Jazz on digital radio, Yamaha NS10 - white cone vintage speakers, and reading the Productivity Commission Report on NDIS.
I can't stand sport.

Its a funny old world isn't it.

When one friend of ours female observed the same thing (in reverse) my wife just said to her "Listen...They are blokes. They watch footy" Deal with it!.

Also: what kind of pocket squares go with navy ties?

Also: Tie Rack - decent quality or bad? It's having closing down sales all over. 50% off ties and 30% off pocket squares.



Nothing wrong with TieRack especially its top made in UK range

No but similar to Plaza which is a great fit for Aussie feet.
