NM. I need to take a chill pill and drop the bikes discussion. It's all been said before elsewhere, many times.

Worst looking double monks ever?

Most of the pictures of dress shoes on that website are not taken on the best angle. Either that or they are actually no good.

Worst looking oxfords ever? On a more serious note, where can I get blake stitched shoes resoled in Melbourne?

Just wondering where I could get some work/dress shoes in Brisbane, DJ's had a pair of loakes, waay too big and way to expensive. I was thinking of trying the Cloak Room, any other places in the city carry decent labels?

Way to big? In that they didn't carry your size or you only tried on the display model? Find your size and buy online from Herring Shoes, Plal or Pediwear.

Hello again fellows (and ladies too if there are any around),

I have another question about where to buy stuff but in Sydney this time.

My little brother (just 18) got himself a real estate trainee-ship the other day. He starts in about 2 weeks. Give it a couple of years and the little bugger will be far better off than me, I am so proud of him!

Anyway, because he has only just finished high school and his only job up to date has been at McDonald's he is rather lacking in clothing appropriate for the job that he is going into. He is pretty poor at the moment too. Can anyone recommend some good places to shop so that he can quickly expand his wardrobe into clothing that is appropriate for his new position. He will be working in the office initially but will also get out and about every so often.

I have advised him that aesthetically he should go for the basics right now but I don't really know where to go to get it, other than DJ's and online.

Any help is good.

F%^k Australia! Just back from Florsheim's "outlet" store to have a look at the shoe trees. They are selling these travel ones: http://www.florsheim.com/shop/style/565.html For a ridiculous $35.

Online shopping still offers the best value in my view, however if you are reluctant to go through that path, then Myer house brand shirts (during sale periods) are ok otherwise Country Road would be my option.

Nevertheless depending on his size, Herringbone warehouse sale may offer a good value although with limited sizes and models.

Finding good value shoes are more challenging in Australia.

Yes I found the same thing after ringing them up and going down there specially a while back. Grrr. Assumed they'd have the half decent ones that McCloud sells.

DJs has quite a few different models of Loake shoes, and they should have them in a range of sizes.

As has been suggested above, see if you can identify your size and then order online from Pediwear or Herring Shoes.

Alternatively, the Cloakroom carries Grenson shoes, but their prices have increased quite a bit over the past year. They used to be excellent value but I think that they are a bit overpriced now.

Herringbone carries some Crockett and Jones shoes, so you could do the same thing - try them on and order overseas, if you wish.

Mitchell Ogilvie carries Church's shoes, which are horrendously overpriced - $1000 for a pair of corrected grain captoes, anyone?? Once again, you could find your size and order from Herring Shoes, if you wish.

I would tend to steer clear of Florsheim, Aquila or pretty much all of the other shoe brands stocked in most stores, as they are terribly expensive when you consider the typically low quality of the shoe (poor leather, poor construction etc).

I've bought shoes from the "sale/clearance" sections for the various brands on the Herring Shoes website before, and have picked up Loake 1880 shoes for as little as AU$120 shipped, which is pretty outrageously cheap. Obviously, stock on sale/clearance varies but if you keep an eye out you can get very decent shoes at excellent prices.
