Was at Trenery outlet store looking at a pair of beater leather shoes for cheap. Picked one up, saw how the upper actually crease like bad cardboard, put the shoo back down and walked out...

Dudes,

I posted this in the what are you reading thread but Australians might be interested. Living in Freo I was inspired to write my first novel. Check it out if you get the chance.



Bad Boy Boogie: The Adventures of Bon Scott by J.P. Quinton http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0198FN3VU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_udp_awd_DP1HwbJ95WBSH

Cheers

Any recommendations for chinos? I've worn Country Road pants for a while and they did the job but I'm sure there is something else out there offering better value. Not after anything fancy, just something hard wearing for work and a slim fit cut.

I prefer ToJ for leather jackets.

I've heard they're quite good. I'm sure @Foxhound Drew his own conclusions.

Osaka/Kyoto - warning - many images! (Click to show)

Osaka, New Years' Eve -

 

 

 

 

Kyoto; secret garden behind the covered markets near Ponotocho-

 

 

 

Spruiker -

 

 

 

Made it to Pontocho -

 

 

 

Awesome twelve-seat bar in Pontocho, serving Okinawan food for the past thirty years -

 

 

 

Today. On my way up the hill to Kiyomizu-dera Temple -

 

 

 

Nearly there - 

 

 

 

Made it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

...and onward, to Ginkaku-ji Temple, which has the most gorgeous garden I think I've ever seen -

 

 

 

 

...and then on, to the Philosopher's Walk, which is actually a fairly recent construct, but still very nice indeed -

 

 

 

 

 

And to finish, here's a fit. (Actually, here's five fits, and some are very fit indeed; but naturally only the middle one would be of any interest to you lot) -

 


Outerwear is Eidos for Christian Kimber. Cardy and trews from Uniqlo. Shirt by Kamakura.

Some very nice shots there, @Coxsackie

I especially like the one with the backs of the two ladies in kimonos at Kiyomizu-dera - nice composition. Glad that you're enjoying yourself!

post #67181 of 67946

Cox, great to see that you're enjoying yourself and that you made it to Ginkaku-ji and the Philosopher's Path. 

 

Kinkaku-ji - the Temple of the Golden Pavilion - is much better known, but the gardens around Ginkaku-ji are lovely and I prefer Ginkaku-ji's more understated beauty.

Coxy you tempting me to go travel to Japan again. censored.gif

Nice snaps Coxie. forgot to mention that you might like to stop by a tea house for a warm bowl of matcha.

Any thoughts on the Tom hope anchor bracelets?
post #67185 of 67946

I don't mind this but I just can't see it fitting my style. My girlfriend would probably call me out on it if I started wearing bracelets.
