It is also inevitable that said incidental expenses will generate change ... and I could put it in my pockets until I get home or to my car, but I find the sound and feel of loose change rattling around quite jarring.
Therefore, despite the fact this is most definitely not SF Approved™, I am one of those infuriating people that carries coins in his wallet.

Without wishing to brag, I just cashed in my piggy bank (I put my change in it whenever I get home), and it was just under $1200. Far superior alternative to carrying it around in your wallet...

I put all my poo change in a pocket in my bag. I buy coffee with it.

^ that's it ... I have a tray at work and at home that I put all my change into, so I'm only ever carrying change around when travelling between those two places

As well as ... Taylors shaving cream...

You may still be able to get theses things if you hunt around, but Gowings had them all in one convenient location.

For Taylors of Old Bond Street try here - http://www.mensbiz.com.au/

Always quick and cheap esp if you use the Badger and Brush code for extra 15% off...BB12 / BB2012 or something if memory serves.

What does everyone in Australia think of Andrew McDonalds shoes?

 

Personally, I love the styles and the quality is second-to-none.

 

We've (Beggar Man Thief) get a new shipment coming to Melbourne this month which is pretty god-damn exciting!

 

Best Aussie Shoe Maker?

So, Hayel & Son on Pitt Street just quoted me nearly $200 to get the sleeve heads for one if my suits adjusted. Anyone know somewhere less expensive?

It's a very lengthy process with a lot of labour, in fact, most tailors are not willing to do it.

just noticed Myer in Melbourne has a section of the shirt section under reconstruction at the moment, which I assume is for the TM Lewin area

I think it was when they opened that shop in Wynyard and then moved into the old Remo site in Oxford St after that it all started to come undone, tragic.

I have a tin where I put $2 coins in and when they get to $50 I cash them and hide them from wife and son. Other shrapnel goes into bucket in the kitchen.

Agreed they are pretty awful especially for the almost $1000 a pair price tag. Zonca you probably wont get much love for those here but from what I hear Andrew McDonald is pretty top notch skills wise, I just think his designs are too fashiony for the construction and quality. If your going to make throw away designs, the construction is lost on the fashiony hipster types that will buy it. They don't give a shit and most don't even now what hand/goodyear welting etc is.

And without piling on too much, those Yuketon cordo mocs on your blog had me gasping at $999! That is a hell of a lot of money, even for horween cordovan and they personally seem an odd contrast, almost a traditional leather sole on the bottom with a moccasin top, very strange to the eye. You can't tell me that the cordo accounts for a doubling of the price on there normal upper end prices? (though even $500 for mocs is pretty ridiculous). Understand you are probably passing on the wholesale prices with a set margin but still.

Absolutely hideous. If you were under the impression that they might appeal to the audience on here, you clearly haven't done your homework.
