Regarding slippers, I am more a barefoot man, even back in sunny Scotland (though as kids we had these great gorilla slippers).

These are the only pair I own, Michael Bastian X Stubbs and Wootton

My wife - who is Japanese - wears slippers year round. She has light ones with open toes for summer and thicker, heavier ones with closed toes for winter. I usually just go barefoot year round but I do sometimes find myself reaching for a pair of slippers in the middle of winter.

When we visit her parents' place in Tokyo, the house slippers are all too small for me so I just end up going barefoot!

I bought mine on sale. Were about $50 delivered.

I love a sale.

And on that Asian note, I got a pair of home slippers from Muji. That, and of bathroom slippers I misappropriated from the W in Taipei. Man, they're comfy.
Lol are you Bangladeshi ?
Didn’t expect to find another Bangladeshi in sf !
We must catch up for some drinks soon.

2 months ago I was French Algerian to unsuspecting Taiwanese girls during a stag weekend.

 

But otherwise, yes Bangladeshi by race.

Let's definitely catch up soon.

CD - have you ever seen any Old Spice eu de cologne/ toilette on your travels? I have some and its running out and I have never seen it anywhere. Underrated I reckon.

On another note* - I see that your G/F Michelle is still regurgitating press releases and doing Kylie Mole tram conversations analysis - "He said - then she said - then he goes y'know"

*small perfumery pun

Old Spice? I had you pegged as a Brut 33 kind of guy.

I play the field:: Azzaro Pour Homme, Sung Homme, Jovan Musk, Davidoff Coolwater and Old Spice.

Would never use Old Spice as an after shave though.

Not all the cheaper ones are bad.

This is a good investment:: Perfumes: The A-Z Guide, Luca Turin (Author), Tania Sanchez (Author)

The only book on perfume I've read is Perfume by Patrick Suskind.

Have watched a couple of very good documentaries on the art a while back.

Don't wear it in the summer, that stuff attracts flies.

Could be an interesting development on the menswear scene over there.

Thanks mate, good to be back. Perth is slowly improving with both Herringbone and MJ Bale now having a presence.

Unfortunately the code (x20) (extra 20% off) only works with sale items and none of these brands feature
