Is it possible to get in touch with sator anymore? Going through some old posts, he knew his stuff.

Maybe that would be a good time to try a SF "pub crawl" that I've been mulling over. It would be around South Melbourne and go something like this:

1. Start at Azzaro at the bottom of Clarendon St
2. Head up to Napier St. If desired, drop into the Sacred Heart op shop on the way, if only to laugh at their prices.
3. Down Napier St to Moray St to visit PJs.
4. Back to Clarendon, turn right and go to Beggar Man Thief. Check out the Kimber chukkas, Loakes, Grensons er al
5. Further up Clarendon to the Salvos. Surprisingly good chance of a find at this one.
6. Over to the Market and check out The Canny Man, BMT's outlet. Loakes and Grensons around $250.
7. South Melbourne Market dim sum, followed by coffee at St Ali.

I believe that Sator is actually Blahman, and is no longer around. smile.gif

Seriously, he hasn't posted for years, and last visited about 6 months ago.

Your ideas intrigue me...

Beards:

 

Used to be, if I spotted a bloke with a full beard, he was either an amphetamine manufacturer or a rural-based white supremacist. Or both.

 

Lately though, big beards appear to have been fully commandeered. Now if I spot the W. G. Grace look, likely as not it's adorning the mug of a faux-bespoke shoe salesman or Let's-Reclaim-Flinders-Lane upstart "gentleman's outfitter".

 

Thoughts?

Great idea, CD!

 

Funny, I've been mulling over something like this as well but in the city ...

Got to see Gatsby tonight. I wasn't too impressed with the cut of the suits, well the suit jackets, really. And in particular, Gatsby's. A collar gap on display in every jacket he wears. And many have bowing lapels as they are far too tight. The pants are generally cut beautifully, with a nice high rise. Probably over Leo's belly button. I wouldn't be surprised if this film precipitates a return to a high rise pant among the general suit wearing population. It really is highlighted as he spends many scenes with his jacket off.

For me, the highlight was probably the semi casual outfits on display. A lot of lovely linen shirts and casual trousers.

I think Tom is probably the best dressed man in the film, actually.

Funnyhunnybunny has inspired me with his powers of recall and observation.

So in his honour tomorrow w I'm going the FULL ON PENSIONER GOING OUT FOR HOT DATE AND HOT LUNCH look. Neat and clean and a touch of the monochromatic.

Yup - all you "street" photographers can catch me around Chapel St - top end around lunch, Glenferrie Road Malvern - Personal Appearance at the Button Shop, and then perhaps CBD later in day.

Anderson Little SC - vintage mid 60s - brown check tweed w green window pane. 3 button, flap pockets, half lined, no darts, small hooked vent, modest swelled edges.
LL BEAN Made in USA OCBD, Red blue checks mini horse blanket style, , floppy collar - vintage.
High rise tan narrow wale cords - slim fit - narrow opening - no cuffs - flat front.
Off white /cream OTC socks with herringbone black
Tan Brogue shoes
Plain watch with NATO band in subdued green and brown

Sorry - but I'm breaking the look with a Burgundy silk knit - square end natch. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

You know SF has taken over your life when all you do is analyse the clothing when you go watch a movie. Damn musicboohoo[1].gif

i.e. in the example above, you only have $1k in your account.  What happens if the dollar goes up 10c?

say for example you have 1k in your account and you are trading $20k lot. Your margin is $100. So you have another $900 free in your account. For every cent that goes against you if aud/usd is around parity then you will loose $200. 1 cent =100 pips. So it is like $2 per pips. As trade goes against you your account will get lighter and if you have less than $200USD your trade will be liquidated. You can use stop loss to prevent your losses / control how much you want to risk and take profit to take profit to close out your trade at profit.

This idea is great. I'll actually be needing to grab some new shoes anyway. Seriously killer idea.

This idea is also great.

 

 

We should make one of them happen. Make it on the 29th of June and I'm definitely in, or the 13th of July 9but the June date is much better)

Sadly i can heard a rumor that ASIO prefers university dropouts over graduates because there are more likely to think outside the box.
