Having a Big barbie with all the boys, wives, kids over at lunch. Doing 11 hour slow roasted lamb shoulder, should be fantastic. Will be washed down with more than a few shiraz's and Kosciusko pale ales I dare say.

 

That sounds like an absolute plum Saturday afternoon! Living la dolce vita!

Today: Trained this morning, watching Breaking Bad Season 4 right now, dinner with friends

Tomorrow: More training, catching up with some friends in the morning and attending a restaurant opening in the afternoon.

 

Three things on the sartorial front:

  1. Fletcher Jones has reopened it's doors on Collins St this time, very close to Rhodes and Beckett. The plan is to open a store in each state's capital city. According to the manager there, they want to go back to the way it was in the old days. Casual clothing looked ok - they had some knitwear left in muted colours at around the $70-90 pricepoint. They've brought back their "portly short" cut of suits for height challenged men who have a generous belly (I think this is a big group of their customers :)) The will also be offering MTM - I saw fabric books from Holland and Sherry as well as Dormuil.
  2. I bought a couple of pairs of Howard Yount trousers (medium gray open weave tropical wool and my first pair of dark brown trousers which should be a nice complement to the grays I already have). A few of the lighter weight trousers are available and on offer in the smaller sizes which was a nice surprise since they're usually sold out of most sizes.
  3. Got a couple of Kamakura shirts on the way (sky blue linen and blue knit) which should be great for the upcoming warm weather.

Brunch this morning with the family and now watching some odd British movie (world movie channel on Foxtel) about dogging. Food shopping later and some gardening if the rain holds off. Sartorial wise my Suit Shop order arrived yesterday.

A lot of people who clearly love watches and who obsess about them, have a bedside table with several examples from Rolex, Omega, Jaeger-Le Coultre and other high-end, well-known brands but they tend to disdain or, at the least, steer away from small ateliers and lesser-known brands.

 

Not this little black duck. I find Rolex terminally boring. For me, the big names are Dufour, Voutilainen, Lang und Heyne, Grönefeld, McGonigle, de Bethune, Speake-Marin, Roger Smith... I would own one of each if I possibly could. (Will settle for my Grönefeld for now.)

You lucky bastard. I'm working today. Ho-hum. However, I am wearing a Henry Carter tie. Crack another Kozzie and drink it for me!

My son's birthday today. Family lunch with arancini, lasagne and an aged nebbiolo, followed by Greek cakes accompanied by a tasting flight of Lark whiskies.

Surprised him with a set of Shun chef's knives; his brother bought him a course in proper knife technique, which might be a bloody good idea.

Tonight, going to Hamer Hall to see Clannad.
