Can attest to their cords being good value and comfortable fit, the rise is high, got some earlier this year in their summer sale. Mine are pleated, ok they do have flat front as well, very cheap think mine cost around $40. Also their Portuguese flannelette shirts are good value on sale, good for a Canberra winter.

It's possible to take great photos with an iPhone camera or even primitive pinhole cameras. Good photography is obviously helped by good equipment, but taking good photos is mostly about having a good eye for composition, a knack for spotting a good opportunity, knowing about how to use light, shadow and colour and so on. Get those things right and you'll generally take nice photos, regardless of whether you've got a bargain basement camera from K-Mart or a $7000 Leica.

You make some very good points. Wen I used to lecture in photography it was still wetware, we did have a couple of Sony Digital, but the trick I used to tell my students was to a) carry your camera everywhere with you b) think of photography in terms of a film narrative and if you can keep your eyes open for the moment.

And yes you can take good photos with an iphone, its all a question of framing. With photography aside from the compositional aspects is all about repetition the more photos you take the better you develop your eye over time. There are some good exhibitions on in Sydney at present with the 'head on' festival. One of the standouts is the Magnum On Set great selection of films worth checking out in particular Denis Stock's images on Set for Planet of the Apes.

I flipped over to Graham Norton last night and there was Buz Lahman or Baz Lurhman in an execrable suit, funny shirt and white sockless lower legs and ankles.

If ever there was a clear cut case of "Don't Imitate This at Home"

On the other hand - that nice young man from the children's wizard series was dressed stylishly.

Yes saw that, awful @Baz. Daniel Radcliffe usually does a decent job.

Hey guys, does anyone know how trustworthy Ralph Lauren polo is quality wise? Need something presentable for winter and just spotted a cashmere cable knit at Djs 60% off. I have no experience with cashmere but heard elsewhere there can be huge differences in quality and most stuff that isn't top of the line tends to fall apart after a few washes. That true?

Not an expert on RLP by any means, in terms of cashmere I would personally never put it in a washing machine, regardless of the quality.

Zzz discovered I have a mould problem in my shoes this morning. I usually stuff them with newspaper when I get home and swap it out with shoe trees the next morning. Is that the way to go or is there a better way? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hopefully oil of cloves will clean that shit out.

so basically I'm paying extra for something that Is going to be a pain to take care of and all I get out of it is the smug satisfaction I'm wearing something schmancy? (Currently upgrading winter casual wardrobe from jeans and hoodies so first time shopping for such respectable casual. Wear)

Get some anti-fungal foot powder from a chemist, and then sprinkle it in the shoes and leave for a little while.

Nolva - I get this issue inside my Meermins after it rains... its basically the moisture gets in and combined with foot-sweat in goes mouldy. I have to wipe them out and let them air-dry and then tree them. Usually avoid those shoes like the plague when I see hints of rain
