My watch usually has enough reserve to see it through the night until I wear it the next day. On the occasions where it's stopped, the two minutes it takes to set the time doesn't really bother me.

 

On the other hand, I find that eating a really hot curry the day before can be a real pain in the arse.

 

Casual Friday:

Don't know if you've been there but the Great War planes exhibit at the AWM would definitely fly your kite. ( think it makes more sense than float your boat)

 

Definitely did GF. I've been a couple of times to the AWM; it seems I've been to Canberra more times than all the other Australian capitals combined (except Brisbane of course). The exhibit is of a similar size to the WW2 exhibit in the Air & Space Smithsonian on the Mall. However, I missed the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center at Dulles which was a big mistake. You can literally walk up and touch the Enola Gay! WOW.

Someone mentioned that at some point, your budget will force you to draw a line and I would expect the Sopwith Camel would be up there. I think only two of the seven are owned by private collectors. I don't think a private buyer will get there hands on the shuttle any time soon, although NASA could really use the cash...

Looking good.

 

Have you tried Khao Soi cuisine?

Anyway, any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

 

Meermin sell some really nice dark brown suede chukkas. I also think the Kent Wang bench grade chukkas look great. Both are priced very conservatively.

Nah, is it super hot?

 

By the way, the field jacket I ordered from the CR outlet shop yesterday arrived today(!!!). I'm a 38R and went with a small. I'm very glad I went with the sizing chart they gave rather than sizing up. The jacket fits well even over the thick jumper I have on today and the sleeves are a good length. Altogether, I'm very pleased with the speed of delivery and the quality so far.

I think we should be consulting TBM on the curry situation.

PSA: 25% off when buying anything online at MJ Bale.

 

You'd be almost stupid to buy anything at full price from MJ Bale. They seem to be almost always running a 'promotion'.

Well maybe not as hot as your super shoes.

 

But seriously, Khao Soi cuisine is from north Thailand region such as Chiangmai.  Main ingredient is bird's eye chilli.  Guaranteed to brighten your day/put a rocket under you/etc.

 

In other news, now mulling a pair of Alden brogue shell boots #8.  Do these ever go on sale?

The problem with Aldens is getting them shipped over from the US. If you have a proxy in the US, you can get yourself on The Shoe Mart mailing list for Alden irregulars and get the cheaper that way: http://www.theshoemart.com/contact/c-contact_irregular.html

 

Alternatively, Need Supply (http://needsupply.com/mens/brands/alden/indy-work-boot.html) and The Alden Shop of San Francisco (http://www.aldenshop.com/DrawOnePage.aspx?PageID=3) also ship. Shipping is $135 per pair of shoes for the latter!

 

The Brown Man is the expert on Alden lasts and fits.

 

This is also a useful resource:

 

 

I know this is WAY more than you asked for but hope it helps!

Yep but the same is pretty much true of a lot of online stores.  Every month saba, country road, trenery have some sort of promotion.  Herringshoes/pediwear usually have a monthly promo etc.

 

If only the 25% off extended to the multibuy, that would be a tidy nice saving
