Cheers for the reply, unfortunately after seeing your reply and checking for stores, they don't appear to have a Brissy one....just assumed they would /doh >.<  Oh well will have to finish early next few weeks when im back down in Sydney for work and duck in if the website hasn't updated.

I have decided to quit salivating over the Meermin museum calf MTO.

 

Just as a matter of interest, if I organise the same MTO in the Olfe last, how many people in this Aussie thread would be interested?

 

I need 25 to get going. I would figure price to be sub $400 easily.

PP - I would be in, but would prefer the Hiro last. Kicking myself I didn't jump in first time around.

 

On another note, I finally bought a new DE razor last week after using my Grandfather's very vintage one for 12 months or so. Where before I couldn't shave 2 days in a row for fear of cutting irritated skin to ribbons, only 7 hours after a shave this morning I feel like I could have another, even though there is no stubble to be seen. Very impressed. Razor is a Merkur-Sollingen Barber Pole 38C for those interested.

Yes plox. 

 

Wouldn't mind a museum calf belt as well. 

 

Hold on though, given the popularity, Meermin make consider adding it to their repertoire.

Value is something only you can assess.

 

The difference between the two shoes is not easily discernible via the interwebz - you need to hold and wear each to "feel" and appreciate the difference.

 

and i agree re: iSurg.. canvass is overrated - heavy and hot

Now that is a good idea. That top line seam rub drives me bananas, although I find its not around the ankle but around my instep. I might have a higher than average instep.

Did the safety razor trip back in my twenties the old man gave me German razor, the septic pencil was my friend on a lot of days. A lot of my friends of mine are into safety razors it, its one of those lost manly arts which has gained a lot of popularity.

I get a good shave from a Mac3. I just had to change a blade that I had been using since January when I bought a razor pit. Very impressed saved a packet on blades the past four months.

It would be exactly the same as the current MTO run by terrorsquad, details on the Meermin thread.

 

Difference to Carmina= handwelting, waist, flushed metal toe cap (if required), and Ilcea Museum Calf. Maybe even shoe trees thrown in. Waiting for Pepe's reply now.

Hey, TBM. Thanks for the sensitive offer. No qualms on my end about voicing an opinion about BN on the public forum.

I agree with you 100% on the quality - poor quality acetate and flimsy hinges etc. I guess for 100 bucks it is affordable but I wouldn't expect it to last more than 3 years. I take my eyewear seriously as do you. I can see which niche they fit in - for those who lose their frames easily or want the style but don't want to commit larger sums for their optical products. Also good for clubbing. I mean, they are 100 bucks so I can't complain. Although I judge their actual value probably 50 to 60 bucks...

Olfe is approximately an F, yeah?

 

I should get a discount on account of my shoe size.
