Also wrong.

 

The correct rendition is as follows:

 

"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua."

 

Clearly a few bogus Latin scholars around these parts.

I wonder what it is you're doing wrong.

I've done a bit of research for you rather than go off the top of my head. Here's a few, with rough prices (which you can always beat if you shop around)

Histoires de Parfums 1725 (Casanova). Myer Melbourne has this. $190
Adidas Originals pour Homme - not sure about availability
Jacomo Rouge - $40 on The Iconic
Caron Pour un Homme - around $40 online
Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche. Can try this at Myer or DJs. Around 100-150 on ebay
Geo F Trumper Sandalwood Cologne. $90 at Ludlows or Mens Biz
Guerlain Habit Rouge. Try at DJs, buy online for around $50.
Hermes Bel Ami. Not sure where you can try this. Around $140 online.
Knize Ten. Bit hard to find, and expensive, but well worth tracking down.
Parfums de Nicolai New York. Can get a small bootle for around $50 online
YSL Live Jazz. Can find this at all the cheapie outlets for $50 or less
Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Sicilian Almond. Can try this at DJs. I think Mens Biz may sell this. Around $110 online
Aramis Havana or JHL. Try at Myer or DJs. $110
Dior Hahrenheit 32. Try in Myer or DJs, but shop at the cheapies. Usually under $100.
Frapin 1270. Myer Melbourne or Double Monk. $190
Guerlain Cologne du 69> Bloody good, I recommend this. Maybe try at DJs or Myer. About $110 online.
Gaultier Le MAle. Try anywhere. $50
Prada Amber Pour Homme. Try anywhee.$70.

Petephan's suggestion of MFK can be tried at Mecca. If you go to Mecca in Myer Melbourne and tell them what you're looking for (as above) they will show you plenty. Same with the Galerie de PArfums in the same store.

Probably way more than you needed, but have fun looking. Once you've narrowed the field, sing out for some tips on where to buy cheap.

I owe you a coffee, or something stronger. Thanks a lot CD.

Very nice. And they will get better with age. Actually, my only criticism - well not really, more an observation of the bleeding obvious - is that they still look too new.

I don't know if I've got OCD, but I actually get really annoyed once my shoes crease and get little scuff marks on them. I just like that mint look. :/

Nothing beats natural patina. Nothing.

Creased and scuffed dress shoes aren't going to look any good if they aren't well maintained. It's only when they are polished that those marks and creases add character making the shoe your own, not just one of many that are exactly the same.

I agree with iSurg and completely understand what PoP's saying.

Brownman, very nice shoes. I dare you to let the indigo dye from your selvage jeans bleed onto the shoes. That would be hell of a patina.

I'm more of a Churches chap but having had trouble buying shoes in Sydney that don't suck, noticed these:

I hadn't really thought of Florsheim as being that good but what do peeps here think? It says made in Italy but not much else.

seen the shoe in person, finishing and colours are pretty average.
