Has anyone used Universal Shoe Repairs in South Melbourne (near the market) for Topy? I asked them for their pricing when I had a couple of toe caps fitted and they said $38, which from memory is pretty competitive if they do a decent job. #dontmentiontopy

Thanks Journeyman, and Quarks too, for your replies.

 

I'm looking at a pair of Santonis from shopthefinest.com. My existing pair of Santonis are Santoni size 9.5 (= EU 43.5). I usually take a 44. This pair were tight for a while but now fit comfortably. Journeyman, what has been your experience with Santoni's sizing? The reason I'm asking is that the pair I am looking at are also a 9.5, there is no stock in 10 (= EU 44).

Mini shopping spree this arvo.

2 x Kamakura Oxford BD's in both shades of blue

1 x pair of brown suede chukkas and brown suede belt from Meermin. Got my "ready to ship" email with a payment request in 2 hours!

That'll do me for a bit, still have mothers day shopping to go, with a mum and a wife to buy for this year.

I have 3 or 4 pairs of Santonis, all of which I bought on sale from Luisa's. No way would I buy them at Harrolds prices, as I believe they are all blake-stitched, even the Fatte a Manos. Luisa doesn't stock as many as they used to, but they still have the odd pair.

The FAMs are really the best choice; their regular line can be fairly ugly.

I think fit tends to vary with their lasts. Overall, I think they tend to fit about a half size larger than my usual size. I'm a UK 10.5E, and the monks I bought in that size ar a touch too long. I have a pair of size 10 suede brogues that fit well. That would seem to align with your experience.

I really do like the Santonis I've got. When I spit-shine my burgundy wingtip monks, they never fail to draw compliments.

Just remember when shopping for the wife that you're setting the precedent for Fathers' Day.

Me too but they obviously have some stuff in stock and I just happened to luck out.

This has nothing to do with menswear, or clothes in general, but I do think it has a lot to do with style (i.e. the ACT government has none).

I am conflicted. On one hand I am appalled that this will be flying overhead this week because quite frankly I think it is the most ugly, needlessly expensive and pointless hot air balloon ever. Conversely (and possibly perversely) I am really looking forward to seeing it grace the national capital skies, even if it is only for a day or two.

Here is an image for anyone not interested in watching those god awful, advertisment ridden, Australian news site videos.

I think the design is somewhat ugly (perhaps due to natural colours of the animal), especially closeup, but also it's pretty cool at the same time.

Yeh i have seen a few pairs on Santoni in Luisa and they are always having sales there as well

Alright. This weeks questions for those up to the task:

1) where is the best place in aus to get a pair of chinos that will take you from a beer at the pub in a t shirt to high tea in an odd jacket and brogues?

2) what do you guys do in terms of key rings? I'm looking for a bottle opener one that still has a sense of elegance.
