All my shirts have these straps. I attach them to studs I had implanted in my buttocks to save having to sew buttons into my OTR pants. Front too.

I had studs implanted in my buttocks - had to get them removed - women kept getting their tongue studs caught

Mine are magnetised too.

Hey Oli, and anyone else interested, the "Williams" (as in RM Williams) are featuring on family confidential this Tuesday at 8 pm on the ABC.

Already onto it. Cheers though, Michael.

As someone who lives in the CBD I found it a gigantic annoyance that made it really difficult to get home that night thanks partly to the road closures and partly due to crowds incapable of not randomly wandering across the roads that weren't closed.  Bah hambug!

 

But I'm moving in a month, so next year I'll probably appreciate it more.  On Sunday I inevitable found out about a bunch of overnight events I might have been interested in going to, at least I know what to look for in the future.  Noisy electronic dance parties aren't my thing, and I had thought that was most of what was going on.

Do more expensive fragrances (e.g. the ridiculous prices people were quoting for Tom Ford splits on here recently) last longer, as in continue with the scent throughout the day?

I find the cheaper ones I have (Calvin Klein) seem to fade to nothing by the end of the day.

Fellow Canberrians any body know a decent barber?

Marbles Ken Cook has a suit sale on, think it started Saturday

Not really. Scent longevity depends on a number of factors, primarily the particular ingredient in question (eg vanilla and woody notes last longer, citrus not quite as long), your body temperature, the ambient temperature, your skin type, and generally how the scent interacts with your skin.

Also I imagine strength/longevity is dependent on the formula: EdT, EdP, EdC etc.

I can see your point. The crowds were colossal; biggest I've ever been in, I think.

Pretty sure there were plenty of warnings that the event was on. Maybe you should have made alternate arrangements. Living in the CBD comes with down sides as well as up; crowds and closures are part of the deal.

Didn't even know white night was on until I got home at 11PM and saw that it was all over facebook. I'd seen it a little bit throughout the night whilst quickly browsing at work but thought they were all drug references.

I've only got Tobacco Vanille and Tuscan Leather samples, and they seem to have decent logevity. But I find they definitely require less sprays to get the job done (1).

Lighter scents may fade quicker and require more sprays, like Creed Aventus and Silver Mountain Water

You definitely get less of a chemical smell with niche frags

My acqua di parma while a great scent doesn't go the distance if anyone can provide expert advice in this area its CD.

Anyway what are we terming expensive? $150 or over? Or more for Tom Ford or Creed.
