Re Yebisu, Cru Bar bottle shop in James Street used to sell it, and quite possibly still does, along with proper Japanese Kirin.

Most of the Japanese restaurants have switched to selling made in Australia Sapporo and Kirin, which may mean they're simply not dealing with importers at all any more.

Nikka is available from most large bottle shops around Sydney. My local Dan Murphys stocks it.

My Zee’s black cap-toe oxfords have just about given up the ghost after 6 years as a beater shoe.

Similarly to JayH, I’m wondering what to get to replace them. The shoes were based on the design for the Edward Green Chelsea.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

Other black shoes in my rotation are a pair of C&J Selbournes, a pair of Testoni wholecuts and a pair of Santoni single monks. The wholecuts have been pretty beaten up too, and are also on the way out.





I could replace the Zees with another cap-toe Oxford along the same lines as the Chelsea (although I’d happily do without the stitching detail). Alternatively, I’m also interested in the C&J Highbury, although that seems to come in a dainite sole only.




I guess a key question is whether a black captoe oxford is so fundamental that I should only do a like-for-like. I don’t think the budget will stretch to EGs, but I’d be prepared to spring for C&J benchgrade or similar price point.

Anyone have some suggestions?

I am partial to these Meermin whole cuts, Do a similar shoe feature in the rotation of anyone here? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have the Alfred Sargent Milton as a part of the my rotation, do you have toe caps already?

Never tried Charles Tyrwhitt so not sure of the quality etc.

Thanks for the suggestion lukejackson. Currently investingating Suitsupply at this stage.

I have a few CT button down shirts and the fabric is very thin, especially when compared to the TM Lewin shirts I have - I'd hope their suits don't suffer from this affliction!

Looking the the EG chelsea, I take it that you prefer the more traditional round toe? At your price point of less than 350 pounds, CJ bench grades are the best, or Tricker's 1829 or Jermyn St collection.

Damn. Check how dapper I was even as a young lad.

I have a bottle on rotation right now and I like it but will probably gravitate back to more smoke and less peat.

The problem with taking the nice stuff is that lesser stuff gets relegated.  Please dont tell my wife I have been using JW Black for polishing my shoes (well, some of it anyway, hick!).

 

Bowmore is a good one, I agree. Smoke - not so much peat.

I tried JW DB in Mexico City and after single Malts found it almost like water. Very smooth -perhaps too smooth.View Post

If I am not mistaken, it was favoured by Winston Churchill...but do not believe what you read on the internet!

Interesting. I'll be down in Tassie over late Jan fly fishing. Would be interested to see what you find.

I've tried a few whiskies from the Nant distillery. Quite strong in taste, but very nice and well worth a taste, I think.

For those who might be looking for a lightweight cardigan in conservative colours, I just noticed that Land's End's "Canvas" line have a cotton-cashmere blend, lightweight cardigan for $69 in their current range:

It comes in navy and charcoal and looks very nice, at least in the pictures on the website.
