Not to be seen in Sydney DJ CBD the fuckers Canberra is even worse. Its a total waste land for socks.

Spent the afternoon watching Cloud Atlas with the wife, what a wank. Worse what am I going to do now that the Super Rugby season is nearly over?

Agree. Cloud Atlas was just way too try-hard. In ten years it will already look badly dated.

Of course there's heaps of stuff. Actually, what amazed me last night is that there are so damn many venues and they were all totally packed. Great town...
Sorry tfp I didn't mean it to sound snarky. I'm always amazed at the new coffee shops cropping up. You really need a guide around me lb if you bare visiting. In order to find the lanes etc, and also know what areas are best for what, like smith St, Brunswick St etc, thornbury, yarraville, St kilda, prahran, and even bits in outer suburbs. Even azzarro is a very Melbourne place, nice clothes, cheap, run by Italians, hard to find , most people cant find it first time, you can't peek in, it doesn't look like a clothes store, looks like and illegal gambling den you have to know password for.

Also pubs full of live music depending where you are on each corner.

Last time I was in DJs only about an week ago there were no argyles, certainly no otc ones, cos that's what I was looking for. I didn't ask as I didnt expect the dudes would haven known what an argyle was.


I'm looking for some wool OTC arygyles that aren't took expensive.

Anyone listen to 774? Henry Blofeld is what all SF high rollers should aim to sound like.

Try Howard Yount prices are still OK even with the $ in decline

I meant Argyle in general is currently "in". Every big label is rocking Argyle sweaters, the pattern is everywhere. It certainly isn't too old for DJ.

I recall seeing some AS in a window display somewhere around the city. Maybe Henry Bucks... or one of those little im-cooler-than-you arty farty shoe stores on little Collins

i just grabbed a whole bunch of thin flat laces from double monk - "shoe stripes" so good. Really improved the look of my shoes imo.

Both the PRL and RLBL look great.  Did you have the fit altered in any way?  I was thinking of bringing in my RL suits to the tailor to make them trimmer.

Mainly PRL and RLBL:

+1. I much prefer the look of flat, waxed laces as opposed to round laces. I've got to pick up some more from somewhere - perhaps I should give Double Monk a call and see if they'll send some up to me.

If I'd known, I could have got you some! They are, however, $14 per pair...

I am a big fan of flat laces too. Put some of the Double Monk ones in my Christian Kimber boots, however they are $10 a pair (but there is a range of colours). I ordered a bunch of black and brown ones from A Fine Pair of Shoes when I got my Alfred Sargent monks, but there shipping always seemed too expensive to order them on their own (though they might be flexible).

Well fuck, apparently P. Johnson aren't 'open' Monday. I thought the point of being by appointment was they would open when they need to...
