You are the king at playing Oliver Twist.

 

It is true though, you need to take things slowly when you're saving up for your Mosman mansion.

I don't know what you mean most of the time and I'm not sure you do either.

Just to dredge up an old subject...

 

Brown leather jackets work well  -

 

Anyway, been trying to avoid old SF until I buy a new bike, deposit made and waiting game begins. Back to saving for my next pair of Edward Greens and PJ :D

Hi guys

 

Just a quick one, I posted a message regarding a bulk order of Saphir Shoe polish for those of us based in Sydney on an old thread.  The order count is around 30 at the moment, if you are interested please let me know:

*******

Dear all

Thanks Andrew for coming up with this idea on a bulk purchase for Saphir Polish. The original post was made a while ago so I hope it was a success.

I don't want to hijack this thread so Andrew if you are running this again please let me know.

Otherwise there seems to be some interest for another order so I would be happy to put my hand up to arrange another order. I have ordered before from Saphirs own distributor valmour.com and found it to be the best price. I also swear by the Creme Surfin and the Universal Cream Polish, pretty much the best shoe polish you can get at a very reasonable price.

I have done some numbers and it comes out as follows (currently I have 23 units and growing by the day).

* Creme Surfin Polish: A$5.85 + $3.42 shipping = A$9.27 landed in Oz
Product type:
http://www.afinepairofshoes.co.uk/products/saphir-creme-surfine-cream-shoe-polish-50ml

* Universal Cream Polish 150ml = A$8.81 + A$5.15 shipping = A$13.96
Product type:
http://m.hangerproject.com/item/363732
* Universal Cream Polish 500ml = A$21.18 + A$11.48 shipping = A$32.66

For the Creme Surfin I checked ebay and they were going for A$9.96 plus A$9.33 shipping = A$19.29 so I think this is a pretty good deal.

And the more purchases we get here, the cheaper it gets! As we are getting it posted we get the VAT taken off plus I have used a 5% discount coupon, win!

Just like Andrew please note there's no profit or skim in this at all. I'm happy to circulate a spreadie which shoes all the costs, everyone order to it's all above board (with receipt).

Look forward to hearing from those who are interested, again I hope the original poster Andrew doesn't mind me doing this, just want to keep a good thing going.

I'm looking to round out the orders in two weeks time, so do PM or reply to this thread soon!

Cheers,
SC

To keep it simple I'm thinking that this may be a Sydney based order so I can the items to you. Pick up preferred Inner West or CBD drop off also available. Ps also I realise I'm new to Style Forum so I go easy on me!

Not sure of the jeans/jawnz, but the kicks are Lanvin.

They are green shoes.
post #54085 of 57821

OK I know Lobb are expensive and yet worth the money, but I would think twice about dropping that kind of coin on green shoes.

 

Having said that, they are breathtaking.

post #54086 of 57821

Ain't nothing wrong with green shoes....

Go for it, they're very unique and while I'm not completely sold on the green museum, they still look great!

Not even 24 hours ago you were asking about Loake Evoloution and now you want to buy Lobbs.

Hey Coxy, you based here or on Melbourne?

And I thought I was addicted to menswear.

I saw the Loakes on gilt and was curious to know if they were potentially worth the $220 they were asking for them.

Those particular Lobbs have been up on SF before and I was tempted to pull the trigger previously as I am a Paul Smith tragic but Coxie is right that a grand for a pair of green shoes is an awful lot

Edit: and yes I thought this was the local chapter of #menswear anonymous - or am I in the wrong place?

Wherever I hang my Akubra Federation IV mate, that's my home.

 

Seriously though, I'm in Melbourne about 50%, Sydney about 30% and still hanging on in Shanghai about 20% of the time. Too much time in aeroplanes but it's kind of nice to be in a different place each week.

 

Right now this minute? Sydney.
