Mr Sy.

Sunspel, Derek Rose and Ede and Ravenscroft. But I prefer the more classic style.

+ 1.

I get all of my underwear and t-shirts, a lot of my polo shirts, casual shorts, and linen and chambray shirts from Uniqlo.

They're great for cotton socks in a wide variety of colours, too, although some might prefer that the socks be thinner.

Oh, and they make good jeans, too, particularly when they do a run of made-in-Japan jeans made from Japanese selvedge denim.

So much Uniqlo love. Unfortunately, I can't keep going commando until they arrive in 2015!

 

I want something a little more special than CK. PS suggestions look awesome! Although 30 pounds for a pair of briefs is expensive. Maybe I have just lost touch.

Just like how I use to wear home brand socks, I now wear Sozzi socks. The difference is remarkable. However, I've failed to make the same transition from my Davenport collection, which actually is starting to pill and fade after a year. Selecting the most aggressive wash cycle probably does them no favors.

 

I see most men are all wearing Abercrombie and Fitch or CK. I just read that last sentence back and its very wrong - I don't actually observe what men wear, I just, yeah. Surely CK isn't 'it'?

 

So what is my Sozzi for the top bit?


Uniqlo, Under Armour and ExOfficio are my favourites.

Nope. I rock bonds. Guess there just aren't many big men in this thread.

 

 

Realising I'm a smaller shoe size than I thought has had a severe impact on my confidence.

Makes a great base to build a meal. I find that if you leave the lid on a thick based pot the moisture from the steam is sufficient

Yes I discovered that making French Onion Soup. But the idea that its really adding small amounts of water/moisture is the go. Alternating with drying it up then adding.

 

I can't underline this enough. Ten years ago I found a site which claimed to have you cooking restaurant style curry in hours - and sure enough - the secret is onions, loads of them. Loads of garlic and ginger too, and not so much spices after all.

Outdoor apparel retailer Snowgum Australia collapses after 89 years in business

Outdoor apparel retailer Snowgum Australia has collapsed into administration, with a sale for the 89-year-old Australian-owned business being sought.

Glenn Franklin, Petr Vrsecky and Jason Stone of Lawlor Draper Dillon in Melbourne have been appointed as administrators.

Franklin told SmartCompany this morning that the focus of the administration is to sell the business as a going concern, as this was the best chance of recovery.

He says the company, which has a franchise structure, has advertised for a buyer, with a number of parties already showing interest at the first expression of interest deadline.

“It is a well-known brand in a competitive market,” says Franklin.

The administrators reported that the amount of debt to unsecured creditors is estimated in the vicinity of $2.2-2.3 million, however, said this figure was subject to further verification.

Franklin says no major banks were owed money, but unsecured creditors consisted mostly of suppliers and landlords.

Franklin says the company has approximately over 86 employees plus casuals and operated 17 retail stores in Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales, ACT and Queensland, together with eight franchisee stores in Victoria.

The administrators reported that a related retail business, MDS Pty Ltd trading as Midland Disposal Stores, operated five Snowgum Australia stores based in Western Australia.

The first creditors meeting for the Australian company will be held on November 4 at the Lawler Draper Dillon offices in Melbourne.

Snowgum Australia was launched at The Scout Shop in 1924, and has had various names and structures in its history.

It changed names to the Scout Outdoor Centre in 1978, then to Snowgum in 1992, with the view of reaching a broader market.

The Snowgum Australia website reports that the business was sold in 2004 to general manager Ross Elliott and a private consortium.

Its core product offer is performance outdoor clothing, designed for bush walking, mountain climbing and other adventurous activities. It also offers luggage, footwear and travel accessories.

Research into sustainable production has been key to the brand, with it using bamboo, organic cottons and recycled polyester in its range. The company launched an e-commerce division in 2012.

The news of the administration contrasts with the fortunes of Snowgum competitor Kathmandu, which recently recorded a 27% profit increase for financial year 2012-13.

2013 has been a challenging year for administrations in the apparel industry, including Bettina Liano, Kirrily Johnston and Lisa Ho.

 

Kathmandu - basically mark up your RRP and have constant sales...a shame about Snowgum : I bought some Merino outdoor stuff there years ago from an outlet on Dandenong Road.

The best Equus had one Jenny Agutter in it!

I ducked in there on the way from K's and did not see as much stock as I would like to have seen. Drake's knits/grenadines for AUS195. Beautiful!

Hey - you know me.

I was having a coffee and a Melting Moment, looked down at home/beater DBs and saw they were filthy. I slipped them off, took out laces, went into sink, ran hot water tap, wet DBs thoroughly, found some supermart liquid hand soap, rubbed it into DBs, lather up, wet some more, got old nail brush, scrubbed a bit, rinsed off lather, rinsed a bit more. Shook them dry, stuffed them full of old newspaper, placed on floor,grabbed another Melting Moment. Chest swelled with pride. Job well done. Replaced damp paper after 24 hours - forgot about it for a day - took out paper, inserted laces, plonked on feet. Had another coffee - searched for Melting Moments - all gone.

As long as the jeans are torn and worn with black shiney pointy turned up shoes then you are spot on for the demographic bro
