Medium, which I think is the perfect size for a duffel bag. Could easily do a week with it. I had it about 75% full with a Pair of RMW's, Barbour International, one pair jeans, dopp kit, 5 shirts, one woolen sweater, 5 tshirts, underwear and socks. I also was not the most efficient packer.

 

 

Bag is pretty empty here FYI.

Thanks everyone that chipped in with advice. Ended up getting the burgundy black bay.

Still slightly bemused how I came to buy the watch. Gave up looking at any watch shops as I knew the response from the wifey would be do you need another watch. Anyway her trusted Tissot finally gave up with a chain break and it would cost more to repair then get new one.

Anyway she couldn't find anything she liked in the Tissot store. She couldn't keeping her eyes of the mother of pearl watch face on the Omega Constellation. However she insisted if she got the Omega it wouldn't be fair if I didn't get something too. Truly my lucky day if you knew how particular the wifey is with money.

Can anyone recommend a cobbler or bag merchant, in Melbourne, pref CBD, who repairs leather laptop bags - and will do a good job?
My handle has come off my bag, stitching/glue combination has failed. I really like the bag. Well worth keeping. Didn't cost a great deal.

Trying to get a pair of new boots to retire my much-older pair that i got from my time in China (which itself says a lot about these boots). Then I thought I actually need to find a decent pair of black brogue dress shoes as well, why not get both in one? 

 

So currently have my eyes set on

http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?colset=1&styleid=867&shoeid=4081&brandid=50&catid=97&oldcolid=2207&stype=0&colourid=2207

 

with a budget of around 550 AUD (Stingy, I know)

 

 

Or I can just wait for the possibility that Meermin could put out one in MTO. 

 

Any suggestions? I'm not quite experienced with boots hunting so some shops that ship to Australia would be great  :p

I've always seen bal boots as surplus to requirements in Australia.

I'd probably just get a pair of chukkas, or if you really want something to wear with a suit in winter, black RMWs.

For Sydney weather certainly agree. But then Sydney-siders think it's cold when it's 6 degrees overnight. I know because I used to be one....

Pussies its cold overnight when the rain gauge freezes solid and yes I was born and bred in Sydney.

VirgilVerne The Standard Store on Crown St carry those Trickers boots if want to get a look and try them on.

If you're prepared to spend $500 then keep looking at herrings or carmina (should be close to your budget). Meermin can be good but unless its the lines meastro line not as comfortable as other brands mentioned.
