I have a nice black pair myself that haven't been worn for years. I dunno if I'd feel right in cuban heels these days.

Changing the subject, where in Melbourne can I get a clothes' valet/stand....?

My requirement is bog-standard: classic wooden hanger, 2 box drawers, and a rail for trousers, reproduction is fine. I don't want any modern interpretation. I've seen examples years back for less than 100 dollars in Melbourne and some on Ebay fetch as much as 200...do members use them...

This is pretty bare bones, but it might fall short of what you need.

I have that one. Works well enough but it's a bit rickety.

Thanks! Do you know, I actually dragged my 2 daughters last year to Chaddy to look at that very model which I thought might work and decided it wasn't 'classic' enough to match the bedroom, (for a start)!

Dartagnan, its really hard to tell if you're mucking around or a tactless ass.

Actually, on that photo, the jacket. I'd like to get it lined, maybe a tartan similar to a Baracuta Harrington, but in dark navy.  Any recommendations of where to get it done.

You are very welcome, and it was lovely to meet you, too.

When we finally get around to organising another Brisbane dinner/drinks get-together, I'll let you know.

Zoinks!

Harsh, in fact a touch too harsh. But the sentiment I agree with. Why not post these daily pics of yourself to Instagram and put a link to that in your sig or something?

C'mon man, don't be a douche. This forum is by and large frequented by gentlemen and a personal attack on someone's face is unwarranted. He's young and and having fun expressing himself. Plus the man is brave enough to post selfies without obscuring his face which is more than most people on here.

Out of interest, what do you use the valet for? Is it for laying out your next day's clothes the night before? Or for photographing your ensembles?
