This was asked a while back.

 

I think the general consensus is that they are great moccasin - as good as Tods. Though they are a driving shoe after all. Don't expect them to last as long as steel cap work boots.

I agree but the original Al Aseel has also had the makeover treatment. The food is still excellent but I miss the hole-in-the-wal kebab shop aesthetic complete with blown up (pardon the pun) photos of 1970s Beirut. They actually had a restaurant in Brighton back in the day which was literally blown up!

Not been to the Surry Hills version I don't think but probably like the Newtown incarnation, more expensive and more 'upmarket', which is good and bad. For one, they serve alcohol unlike in the Islamic Republic of Greenacre.

Can't help - but soon I'll be able to tell you how to get huge shiraz stain out of the front of a linen shirt post NYE. 24 hours soaking in Napisan doesn't do it so far.

What about making a paste of equal parts Napisan and water, rubbing it into the shirt on both sides of the stain, leaving it for 24 hours and then a soak and wash?

Did you cure it first in salt? Found that is the best way to get wine stains out. Napisan is good use it on white shirts once every couple of months. Mrs GF swears by Sard soap as a stain remover.

Had a surprisingly good bottle of Pinot tonight Hoddles Creek Yarra Valley, the AFR recommended their Chardonnay as one of the years best and the PN is on the same level, very nice indeed.

Friend of mine owns andytoms

Quality wise they are miles ahead of all the other shoes at the same price range ... Made by ex tods workers in Florence where as the competition are made with inferior suede and rubbers in Asia.

That said having tods and these, the suede used isn't as good and the inner foot base and lining also not as good.. But they are about 80% as good and they are less than half the price

Thanks guys.

You've definitely sold me on their quality. Any word on fitting/sizing though?

post #43749 of 51882
fxh maybe soda water would help lift the stains as well as rubbing the area with a napisan paste/ bicarb paste as Gerry suggested.
post #43750 of 51882
Bicarb and vinegar maybe?

Oops didn't actually quote the thing I was replying to, but, apropos the Filson discussion:

Each of eastdane.com and revolveclothing.com offer free shipping to Australia.

Not sure how well those prices compare.

I was eyeing off a zippered tote bag, although I am going to try to pick up a Red Label version in Tokyo for maximum #menswear value...

Thanks Mr Firmin, Mr PoP, Sliq and even the often maligned Mr Jimmy the Gent Hoffa for there suggestions fir my Sydney trip!

One more q though, is there anything similar in quality to the Bourke St Bakery in the eastern burbs?

Can't wait to see H Bucks and PJ's too...

Cmon Aussies at the SCG!

Heading to the Armoury today - want to get a well fitting whtie shirt if I can. Let's see what they got.

post #43754 of 51882
Matt, hope you are enjoying HK. I just visited the Armoury smaller shop at Landmark yesterday. Whilst they have nice stuff, the prices are inflated by quite a bit. Also not sure if they actually stock any shirts.
post #43755 of 51882

Ahhhh - maybe will avoid.

 

Inbox me if you want to hang out sometime PP - I'm here to the 8th.
