Um, ok. I'll let you talk about that and ORIA, NHMRC, ARC, NIH, JRDF, etc. kinda harsh to call it disingenuous, lol.

Emphasis mine.

If you're going to bring up bring up research students and talk about them "struggling" re: no government allowance. It seems questionable to then ignore the normal source of funding.


Overly harsh seem PM

Oh and get the Style Forum 10% discount when you spend over $84.95 by adding the code SF10 when checking out.

Ok, which one is this? That tie is making me dribble a little.

So, er, back to style and shoes maybe?

Had lovely quiet weekend (even watching Geelong pitifully lose to Collingwood at the MCG could not ruin it). To top it off I finally placed an order for some double monks. Beautiful Alfred Sargent Ramsey in snuff suede.

An exclusive to A Fine Pair of Shoes, one of only 10 pairs I believe. Also ordered some socks (grey with pink toe and heel), flat shoe laces, shoe trees, some suede cleaning products and got a free Alfred Sargent leather belt. Something very nice to look forward to in the mail.

I had not really planned to buy anything for a while but at the same time have wanted some suede double monks for years and these were exactly what I was after so I weaken and bought them. Some calling it doing a "Gerry Nelson" (sorry Mr Nice Guy, could not resist).

Anyway, I really need to get around to selling some of my excess stuff on eBay and/or B&S now (probably should have done this first).

Oli - for what it is worth I think you should get some C&Js or Carminas (a vast step up from Loake, which are a good entry to proper shoes). If you are lucky enough to find someone with the right size feet to try them on that helps (Gerry did this for me, further earning his Mr Nice Guy title). If not try Herringbone or Henry Bucks and maybe buy a pocket square to ease your guilt...

If you look after them (trees, occasional polish, do not wear two days in a row) they will do all you need from them and last you very well.

thebrownman - I believe the rules for sneakers to exhibition are it is OK if you are under 30...

fxh - with that coat I think we should see some of your street style shots here (actually for anyone who has not seen, the Bill Cunningham documentary is a wonderful film).

Loving this cooler weather. Nice to be able to put on layers. Even had my Henry Carter cashmere smart gloves on last night at the football, as did my wife (charcoal for me, navy for her). MCC Members section is often the coldest place in Melbourne.

I am in Loake! Pity though my Meermin chukkas will be here on Wednesday.

Yes I like just to talk about the clothes too and I love grey flannel. In about 2 weeks I should have some sample trousers arriving to add to the range and one is a grey flannel, single pleated, side adjustered pair which I plan on wearing the shit out of through winter.

Would you guys consider C&J a better investment to say Loakes? The C&J are definitely a step above, but I'm looking for something to topy and turn into a beater.

 

I have two pairs of Loakes and one pair of C&J. The C&J are a pleasure to wear, while the Loakes still feel like they aren't broken in. That is saying a lot as I walk to and from work (4-5km per day depending if I drop my daughter at childcare).

 

HTH.

So everyone, what should our poor but cashed up friend oli spend his youth allowance on? Should he go buy some LSD and hopefully provide him with some wonderful insights like Coleridge, or Steve Jobs?

Should he buy some black C&Js which will become a wardrobe stable for years to come?

Should he save that money for his next overseas trip which can be spent on foreign luxuries?

Should he get himself a hooker and be able to compare sex with a prostitute with sex from a genuinely interested female?

So many questions, not enough money.

How am I going to sleep at night?

(Don Draper: on a bed made of money).

He should buy grey flannel trousers.
*grey flannel would also be good for the hooker. It's effing cold out there on the streets.

I just dropped off some grey flannels today for the addition of a silk saddle. My giant thighs seem to act as a cheese grater on all my nice pants :(

That's this one http://henrycarter.com.au/products-page/knit-ties/khakiolive-knit-tie/ (only difference is natural lighting on the abive photo vs studio lights on the website).
