Reminder: Meetup Tuesday 18 June of La Direction générale de Melbourne de la Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes

You are welcome to drop in for 10 mins on the way to the train or stay until 7pm or kick on 'til later.
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

Details below: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
At Sofitel on Tuesday 18 June at Sofitel Lobby/Bar - Collins street - - quiet - plenty of room and bar /coffee pay for yourself.

Inside the centre go up the escalator. I'll try and reserve a set of couches etc right down near the bar and Mens Toilets! (I'll be the one sipping single malts on a bar tab named G Nelson)

The idea is to have a low key, early short meet up so its from say 5pm for 5.30pm to 7pm so we can get home in time for soup and Inspector Rex. Or kick on. It isn't a clothing competition.

Matt from SUIT SHOP has agreed to come along and bring his books and some samples.

By popular request Matt and me will give a short rant on our recent Tokyo visits at 5.30pm. Also by request I will bring along my collection of Japanese mens clothing magazines

PMs and if you would do me a favour and email me at:

fxholden@netspace.net.au

with your mobile number - first name at least and online name. (otherwise I will get terribly confused as to who is who)

In case venue or something changes I will txt or ring people.

Hopefully oil of cloves will clean that shit out.

I wouldn't use Oil Of Cloves on leather. Or bleach - it will only whiten it not necessarily kill the bug.

Anti fungal powder as someone said. Make sure you haven't got Athletes Foot yourself.

Make sure you wash socks and hang them out.

Try 8/10 vinegar (cheap white cleaning vinegar from supermart or bunnings) to 2/10 water. Will kill it.

If you have very sweaty feet then makes sure you wash socks and use hair dryer on low after wearing to dry out shoes. You can save those absorbent sachets from various things will help if you plonk them in .

These would be perfect - sadly they are NOS from 60s. Hard to find.

Thanks for the suggestions. Would you get anti fungal powder from a pharmacy?

Great fit on them, personally not of the fan of the 'original' khaki shade of greenish-beige; stone and British khaki/plain old beige are my favorites.
Sadly my thighs mean I have to go with pleats but will order tailored and the slimmest pleat I can find from LE just in case, as I think khakis look better plain front. Nice Darth Vader helmet :P

Are you sure it's mould? Could be just accumulation of sock lint at the toe of your shoe from the photo.

Only have one cream cashmere zip neck from RLPL so not sure about the polo line. That said, this one's wearing pretty well, and I've had it since '07.

Squeezed my hand in there and gave it a bit of a swipe. There was quote a bit of lint and some green fluff.

Man i wore my nice cordovan aldens out to the ivy last friday afterwork and the toilets there are disgusting - i suppose people can't aim after a certain number of drinks. Anyways after about 5 trips to the restroom and 5 too many old fashioneds, i realised my soles have been dampened and darkened with the piss from the floor! Fuck, it is disgusting as shit. My leather soles are black now.

Are my shoes ruined? or should i resole them? Or should i just wear cheap pointy guido shoes to the ivy next time? I'm very sad because everytime i touch the sole of my shoes when im brushing them, all i can think of is the piss that is touching my hands. Please help frown.gif
