"A monogram adds a bespoke finishing touch to any outfit, as Dior Homme showed with this sophisticated, yet subtle, detail in their Spring Summer shirt collection."



Clearly, Ms Edmonds uses a different dictionary from the one that I use, if she thinks that is "sophisticated, yet subtle".
Its a misspelling.

It should read : Louise Edmonds (who has "crud in the luxury menswear sector" due to her "experience with peddling fluffy puff pieces on brand names who advertise with us ") has penned another lamentable Men's Style article for Fairfax:

And I'll remind you:
The founder of MenStylePower.com utilises her passion and understanding of fashion to deliver a fresh, edgy take on men's style.

Show me where you - or any of the other idiots here - have a fresh, edgy take on men's style let alone passion and understanding of fashion.

Well maybe blahman - but other than him. Well OK PoP - but other than those two.

Good effort, but those are just sidies aren't they? Don't mutton chops go along the jawline?

Fully concur, but you started demanding it IIRC. smile.gif

Your right mutton chops have to connect to a moustache and then their "friendly mutton chops" according to Wikipedia.

All this talk of wine in the previous few pages...

 

Can anyone direct me to anything vaguely wine related that one could do within a few hours, within driving distance of Melbourne?

 

Finally managed to make the trip down next week, and would be interested in a journey to something approximating wine country.

 

It can't be all #menswear and banter.

Jack Rabbit winery in Drysdale. About 90 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, there is a cafe/restaurant with magnificent views across Corio and Port Phillip bays. Wine and beer selection is quite good, and there are quite a few other wineries and breweries on the Bellarine Peninsula to check out. Make a weekend of it and stay the night in Queenscliff and get the ferry back to Sorrento. Scotchmans's Hill, Oakdene and Leura Park aren't far, neither is the Flying Brick Cider Hall or Bellarine Brewing. If you have time to get along to Torquay, Blackman's brewery has some fantastic beers that have received a few awards.

I can only see a small part of the jacket, but it does look like the shirt is pretty subtle in comparison. Horrible, but subtle.

Seeing JM yesterday so generously posted those pearls of wisdom from Executive Style I thought seeing as I'm off to the barber today I should share this gem.

Theres millions of places. Depends where you are starting from and how much time you have. Bendigo area is only 2 hours away and its stacked with wineries. Heathcote the same. Geelong area in general is less than 2 hours. Yarra Valley (The Hills) can be only 30 minutes away depending which side of Melbourne you are on. Also depends what you want. Just to see wineries or to visit and sip or fine dining as well. Then there is the Mornington Peninsula less than 1.5 hours away and chock full of wineries and "experiences"

This is brilliant – if only I’d thought of this:

 

http://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/charity-that-spent-1m-on-luxury-cars-holidays-and-gambling-loses-taxfree-status-20151124-gl6v2o.html

 

"The Federal Court struck out an appeal from The Study and Prevention of Psychological Diseases Foundation (SPED), which was fighting the Australian Tax Office over the loss of its charity tax concessions and deductible gift recipient status for its work to study the "ideal human environment".

 

The Brisbane-based foundation, which was founded by James Salerno Snr, purchased a Rolls-Royce for about $695,000, a $100,000 Hummer, and a $300,000 Ferrari for what it claimed was research.

 

Other costs include travelling to India to attend a wedding and gambling as part of research into "understanding thought processes and addictive behaviour from engagement in games of chance".

 

 

The foundation's membership was stacked by members of Mr Salerno 's family, who paid their entire salaries into the foundation and therefore paid no income tax. Their everyday living expenses, such as housing, food and travel, were paid for by the foundation."

Not brilliant at all because they got caught.

Suit Scientist Research Institute (SSRI) - it would be selective uptake - small joke.
