Getting decent trees in Australia is a real pain. They're hard to find and way overpriced if you do. I live in Adelaide and the only place I've found here that has them sells generic made in china brand for about $70. I ordered mine from DM in the end.
Every now and then someone on here tried to organise a group buy to get some shipped from o/s. I'd say try and organise your own or ask DM if they'll get new stock in soon.

Depends on the lining. Synthetic linings will stink up shoes.

 

Natural linings (like leather), won't.

Given that they generally have very narrow last, I was surprised at how perfect the Simpson last fit me. I have a pair in the Forest last in cordovan and they are very tight!

 

Also, has there been any new shops that sell good shoe trees? I went into Double Monk who sell generic ones for $49, but are out of stock.

 

I get my trees from amazon. Can get Epic Woodlore (re-branded AE trees) for $30-40 depending on the discounts running and the quantity you buy to reduce shipping cost.

 

The 20% off first shoe purchase coupon works with these.

Yeah I picked up some AE combination ones off amazon recently $35 each shipped and am very happy with them fills the shoe nicely and has a good size rise on the instep.  I found the floresheim and loake ones are too small and werent fully filling the shoe (in terms of the instep/rise not the actual length of the shoe).

 

Value for money the woodlore ultimate ones are also pretty good if you don;t have large feet (read the comments on amazon for more on that).

Does anyone know any Aussie stores that stock safety-pin style tie clips, as beloved by Beppe?





Failing that I might get some green fingerless gloves and dye my hair blue.

Fabric shops, look for/ask for kilt pins. I have got a couple at home from some fabric shop or other.

Thanks, good tip. I actually have a kilt pin in a kilt somewhere around the place, must dig it out and repurpose it.

Failing that I could track down an old acquaintance who used to have one through his... nose.

Hope to see a few of you in the two challenges running this week:

 

CM has monochrome fit challenge

 

SWD has graphic fit challenge

 

Both are open to anyone, probs going to compete in the graphic fit challenge, which apparently includes any printed items (maccasfields for example!)

So we do have some mutual acquaintances in common.

I've got a whole bunch - I got some from a cough Highland Shop cough not far from me - they have good socks and wool ties too, if you like that sort of thing, and have kilts, jackets, bloody ghillies,etc etc . The bloke who runs it speaks with a burrrrr but strangely I suspect he isnt authentic (no true scot etc etc ) as I've never seen him drinking Irn Bru or Bucks or in trackies, or with fag in his mouth in the shop. And I think I even got some pins in various sizes from Spotlight - if you are desperate I can send you some - I'd hate to see you not looking hip.

Do stock pins destroy non-knitted ties, that is, leave bruising and holes in the silk?
