I own the 714SM model in havana/blue and love it. I am a bit sad that they have finally arrived in-store here, though, as they won't be as unique as they were last summer.

Thankfully Persols seem to be relatively few and far between in Melbs, unlike the ubiquitous Ray-Bans.

But Nick Smith at GQ said they were just becoming cool? frown.gif

so after you guys wash it do you get all the excess water out by just gently pressing it on a towel then arrange its shape on the towel and roll it up with another towel ontop?

You don't have to roll it up again, I only roll it to get the excess water out without wringing. After rolling I just lay it flat in some shade.

Personally, I'm not a fan. I hate that bit of metal across the top. Reminds me of a Gucci/Prada monstrosity. If it wasn't there, they wouldn't be too bad.

Just wash it in the bathroom sink. Fill sink with just warm water. Put in wool fabric wash from super mart . Gently wash jumper in it. Push up and down and then gently squeeze out suds, repeat. Then rinse suds out in similar warm water without detergent.

Or jump in the bath with a close "friend" and wash jumper in bath with you. Don't forget to rinse soap out of jumper.

Don't wring out too much water if you are worried.

TaKe outside and lay flat on towel on flat surface in shade, out of rain, out of places where cat will sleep on it or dog chew it or possums shit on it. If no outside do it inside.

If you hang it up while wet the weight of the water will stretch it.

Wait till dry.

Put it on.

DO NOT PUT IN WASH MACHINE. DO NOT PUT IN DRYER.

You will NOT catch a cold if you wear it wet.

If in doubt ask a mum or an auntie or a granny. If they don't know give up.

And PRL polos are always at about $40 at PRL outlets.

thanks. i'm guessing these kinda things are fake - where can you get them online that are cheaper/legit (no outlets in adelaide)?

I second pediwear. I bought a pair of grenson shoes from them 2 weeks ago, they cost me AUD 220, including free grenson shoe polish, shoe horn, silk tie (ok a bit crappy but free) and shipping. The cost was actually cheaper than buying the shoes in the UK because I didn't have to pay UK VAT!

I own a few pairs of grenson shoes, just love them. They last really well and are so comfortable. Such better quality than anything comparable in Australia.

Hi all,

Very new here and wanted to see what other Aussies thought about the "no socks" look I see in a lot of photos, often for business and business casual dress.

I'm a white collar professional in Canberra and I've never seen anyone, ever wearing "loafers" or whatever they're called without socks.

Is this just a Canberra thing?

Just wondering what other blokes thought. Sorry if this is the wrong bit to post...

Outside of sexually charged encounters the least attractive bits of male anatomy are, in no particular order, are the genitals, neck and ankle.

To then display these in public is to mark oneself as a certain kind of person, of which there are many in Australia. Merchant Bankers.

There should be public health laws to protect people from the smell of stinky sock less feet. I assume shoemakers are happy to see sweat eating into leather and ruining shoes as it makes for more sales. Tinea remedies will be useful.

There will be those on this forum who will disagree, you are welcome to take their advice and also to wear a hoodie, business suit without a tie, a shiney pale green tie with huge Windsor knot, off white pointy toed shoes to the Melbourne Cup, cuff links with open necked shirt, underpants showing above trousers, black shirts with white ties and rolex watches.
