Order of Saphir products turned up from Valmour today. 

 

 

 

No shoe care products were harmed, thankfully.

That's rather bizarre!

The last time I ordered from Valmour (a couple of years ago), everything arrived very securely packed in a sturdy cardboard box, and the box was then filled with lots of packing foam to make sure that the glass jars of Saphir creme weren't damaged.

Same this time. Every jar bubble wrapped individually, and mountains of foam in the box generally. I suspect something got to the cardboard box during shipping, as I hate a note from Auspost saying: "Your package came into contact with some unidentified liquid" or words to that effect, taped to the box. 

 

Regardless, happy everything turned up intact.

Would you guys consider the Volley as a fair replacement for the Vans as a go to sneaker? 

 

Vans remind me too much of tapout shirts, eyebrow piercings and fluro coloured commodores...

my goto are superga.com.au

+1. Alternatively, if you do want to look further, Country Road sometimes have some surprisingly nice, canvas sandshoes that are unbranded and look classic and unobtrusive and which cost about $40, from memory.

I know that the Dunlop Volley design is a classic, but I can't consider wearing them as they are inextricably intertwined with images of bogans with mullets, tight black Lee jeans and AC/DC, Anthrax or Metallica t-shirts, Winnie Blues and Commodores.

Say what you will about mullets, black jeans and commodores, but leave my Winnie Blues out of this!

Anonymous asked: whenever i wear a cardigan with my shirt + tie, i have this collar gap that bugs me. is there a fix for this?

Sounds like what you need, is to take dressing less seriously; say hello to the person next to you, and ask how their day is going.

If the cardigan keeps you warm, keep it on. If it’s too warm, leave the cardigan off."

Oh well.

 

Isn't the first time this has happened, and probably won't be the last. Not sure how to respond to these things. I do what I can, when I can. Good thing that the contents of my Tumblr have no effect whatsoever on my real life. I have a day job that I'm mostly happy to be doing, and it pays the bills.

 

I've decided that leaving it be might be the most peaceful response. Tumblr is full of people stealing shit. I just hope it makes them happy.

 

Maybe I'll try this watermarking thing but it feels like so much work.

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?

 

Considering it's winter, I'm going to give this beard thing a shot. You know the thing about beards.. they grow on you.

Plus the warm fuzzy feeling that goes with it.

CPs are nice shoes, but there's a biiiiiiiiiiig difference in price between those and a pair of Dunlop Volleys!
The CPs are about ten times as much as the Volleys.

Been there, done that. The Armo bloke at work wasn't too impressed...

Wow Queensland bogans wear Dunlop Volley? That's very patriotic of them, in Canberra they wear 2nd hand Asian sweat shop jobs or they just boost them from stores in Civic.
