You can put everything together from here, but you potentially suffer from missing the big picture like what Michael Sy used to suffer from. 

 

Also - keep in mind that most of the stuff you read off the Australian forum is very upper middle class and US shopping - your average Aussie wouldn't have the $$$ to buy 5 pairs of the same M2M Cordovan Aldens just for an 'experiment'. Keep to the absolute basics, you'd be surprised how stylish you can look in a white shirt, black knit, well cut grey tropicals and a pair of dark brown brogues. 

Thanks Oli, ill look into those books.

Nice! I would suggest taking a few pictures in daylight as well. It's sometimes very difficult to get the true color with indoor lighting.

Very nice. Are they one of the Epaulet/Carmina MTO shoes, or are they from elsewhere?

from the size of the shoes, you must have tiny feet.

From Agentlesmens footwear. SF member Steveyoo. Can highly recommend him. The process took about 2 months.

 

Its hard to keep up with the Carmina MTO's. there are so many going on in th thread nowadays. Im trying to stay out as my bank balance cant keep up.

Carmina Midnight Navy Wholecut MTO

 

As promised. Sorry bout the crap picture. The midnight navy is probably darker than i thought it would be mistaken for black inside. I havent taken them in the sunlight yet and i am hoping that the natrual light brings out the blue, if that makes any sense. If not- will have to use them as a work shoe and keep looking for a bluer blue!

 

Well, there are these... bluer blue shoes

Lovely outfit, but I really don't like a single turn up on jeans. Either hem them or buy them long enough to build a proper turn up.
Perhaps like this or this. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I don't actually mind the single turn-up as, due to the thickness of denim (and of the side-seams), rolling it up a couple of times can get a bit bulky.

I spotted this article in the online version of today's Age newspaper - "A man's guide to avoiding style remorse":

http://www.dailylife.com.au/dl-fashion/a-mans-guide-to-avoiding-style-remorse-20130530-2ndzh.html

Basically, don't buy stuff from fashion brand names; be conservative, go for mainly dark colours, be indifferent rather than try too hard; and ignore all of the above occasionally.

I have a nice one, sterling silver from Declic, with a design modelled on the Konstantin Brancusi sculpture series 'Bird in Space' (seriously) which I don't wear all that often. I like it as an accent to plain ties like grenadines, but as I mostly wear prints, I don't get a huge amount of use.

I also used to wear it every time I appeared in court in the Northern Territory, as solicitors and counsel there don't wear jackets (the first time I appeared in an RAF blue suit with a PS garnered much amusement), and I didn't like my tie flopping about unchecked. However, those days are behind me...
