    I have a question for the shoe experts around. I recently bought a pair of C&Js from the American Tailor sale. I haven't owned C&J before but I have owned AEs, Loakes and Meermins.

    The issue is that the top layer of the sole seems to be peeling off at the toe. I've never had this issue with any of my other shoes. Is this going to be a problem going forward? Is it an easy fix for a cobbler or is it something I should be returning them over? Here are the pictures for reference:

    Temporary?

    On clothes down in Canberra now so I'll have to say hi. Went to Joe's for those blake shoes, seemed very good, will post more when I get them back (include a self addressed prepaid).

    Got some old blue co jeans recently and really enjoying them.

    Can I ask a newbie question?
    Well thats one question already.

    Although it may come as a shock to some of you, I am not in favour of wearing a tailored jacket, or any jacket really I suppose, without a proper shirt collar or at very least, not for me but others, a polo collar.

    However I see lots of people, men even, although mainly boys and women,, wearing tailored jackets, mainly orphaned suit coats from what I can see, with V necked (shudder) or crew necked T shirts.

    In my mind its an incredibly grubby thing to do and I can only imagine, and I've sometimes actually seen the grimy layers, the layers of sweat, grime , dust and city dirt that accumulates on the jacket collar. With women its even worse with some caked makeup. I've never been in just that right social situation (unlike Craig Thompson) to ask a heavily made up woman. (Partly because I don't have much to do with heavily made up women)

    Those of you who have tried this - and I'm assuming a small minority have - can you tell me how you handle this problem?

    Dry clean after every wear??

    Pretend it isn't a problem??

    I have done polo collar with my cotton sport coat but I agree it's gross have neck on suit contact. Mainly I've seen guys do this for "fashun" and it's usually a cheap jacket

    But I doubt these people think or care about the grubbiness

    I think that's because it was trendy to wear your shirt collar over your jacket collar back in those days...

    I'm off to Macedon Ranges on Sat. Any recommendations from those who've been there before? Particularly green thumb interests? Dicksonia Nursery is already on the top of the list.

    Count me as a supporter... I was actually thinking of commissioning one of these when the PJ crew next rolls in to town.

    I do it with my Puma runners, shorts and my Futurama tshirt. :slayer:

    In all seriousness, your stuff is already pretty dirty if you wear your stuff anywhere in public, sit down on any chair, rest your arms on anything. I always wear a collar shirt with my tailored stuff anyway for comfort.

    That is shocking, and shouldn't be done. The same goes for people that dress for 2 climates at the same time. 4 layers on top, 1 on the bottom and thongs.

    I would politely ask, "what gave you the idea of combining your pub shirt with your formal wear"? They'll be able to put two and two together.

    A large Islander woman stopped me in the street recently, and said, "Only losers still wear Onitsuka Tigers. This isn't 2008". That was a difficult situation for me to handle.

    Holy heck! Yes, I can see that is the kind of thing which could set you on your backside in a therapist's chair for quite some time.

    Could have been worse though. You could have been wearing Camper pelotas...
