Archie Rose is probably my favourite gin these days.

 

Distilled in Sydney with Australian botanicals.

Over and out,

Thanks for starting this, much appreciated mate. Correct blah I'm no longer an affiliate, got to the point where I'm pretty well established here, too many other similar affiliates have popped up in the last 6 months and it's just too expensive with the collapse of the AUD. I'll still be around though, might even have to get off my ass now and post some fits from time to time.

Need a pair of cheap boat-shoes to wear, you guessed it - with no socks. Out after school to Milo cricket, on the deck, down to the beach.

Will take some abuse.

 

No large amounts of money need change hands. Where in a suburban shopping mall, or in the CBD can I pick up a pair.

 

Blue (or brown) uppers, white/brown slim sole in the Topsider moccasin style with laces. (Not with chunky soles, as in the Timberlands you see people walking around in).

 

I don't care if they are from Target and cost 20 dollars. Infact, I could buy 2 pairs.

I see that Kmart have a West  Coast pair for $60 which I think is a bit suspect. There is another pair but the styling is a bit pretentious.

 

I see I could get a pair of Lee Coopers from SportDirect for $18 plus shipping.

 

Suggestions?

If you're going real low you can even get a pair from Rivers and theyre 40% off everything at the moment.

But in terms of fit I think it is pretty close to what I like: Good rise (hitting right on my navel), comfortably slim around the arse and thighs, tapering to a pretty neat ~17cm leg hem.
The waist is a little loose as I am currently a size 30 at the slimmest I've ever been and the trousers are size 31. but I'll just need to pull the side tabs in a bit and since it's winter gear I will be wearing thicker twill shirts and thicker undershirts anyway.
Off to pay $6 tomorrow to get the pants shortened with blind stitching.
I've got VBC flannels and they are really nice and buttery. Hard to believe that uniglo has high rise though???

And $6 for hemming?? where - is this your mum?

17cm cuff opening - wtf? they yoga tights?

This is a Uniqlo collab with Lemaire a Frenchie who once headed Hermes so the styling is a bit different.
Uniqlo comes with free hemming and +$6 for blind stitching.

Understood.

For the Melbourne members - an article from The Age on a treasure trove of photos of Melbourne street scenes and everyday life in the late 1960s and early 1970s (yes, that's right - someone's stolen fxh's family photo album):

Hi HC, just wanted to say that I'll be getting my first tie from your site this Christmas. Been following the Aus thread for a bit and that's influence me to try your ties out.

Even if you're established in SF, there's always new customers like me coming in and with the poor AUD I can imagine more locals would be attracted to Aussie suppliers. So it's good that you'll still be around.

Hi, guys. Boxing day is on the way and I'm looking for a pair of shoes so did American Tailor and Double monk do some sales on last year?

Those are lovely shoes CD. Are they in F width or E width if you don't mind me asking?

Cheers.

Speaking of ties, these are my go to:

- Black grenadine bambino
- Navy grenadine bambino
- Navy and white stripe
- Navy with white pin dots

What are some other mega boring numbers I could rotate in there? I have a red but it's a little loud.

The Iconic do a good range in boat shoes having just trawled through several shopping centres without any luck myself.

My HC burgundy grenadine grossa is my go to tie of late, not as loud as as a red tie. With a sky blue shirt and grey suit it rounds off a professional urbane cultivated look as opposed to standard APS, Canbrera MIB look.
