    I'm more impressed with the private elevator than the clothes.

    That's the one. I believe you can get some samples from them pretty readily at their warehouse.

    I've just plonked up some moleskin trousers for sale see below spoiler or link in sig.

    Moleskin Trousers
    Peter Christian, moleskins, Loden / grey green dull colour
    These are Men's trousers not boys pants
    11.5” to 12" front rise,
    9" or a bit less leg opening, with around 10" at knee,
    waist size on label 34.
    Flat front.
    Comfort waist.
    Inseam is about 29.75" with 2" to let down

    These are that lovely thick soft, very warm English moleskin not the stuff Australians, RM Williams, call moleskin, which is more like a heavy twill.
    Very warm - outdoor trousers.

    $30 if in Melbourne plus a coffee. Plus postage elsewhere.

    Further info:
    http://www.peterchristian.co.uk/mens/trousers/flat-front-moleskin-trousers
    Size on label 34, these trousers have been washed about 5 times, I wash all cotton around 3 times prior to wearing to soften up and complete shrinkage. The have the comfort waist. The comfort waist is a very well designed thing with elastic in each side, hidden, that allows for another 1.5 to 2" expansion. These have shrunk somewhat in the waist so that they are fully stretched at 34" and a bit. So they would be ideal for someone who varies in waist from say, 32.5" to 34". That said there is around 2" to let out at back of waist. To sum up, with no alterations they are ideal for 32.5" to 34" waist, but with letting out would suit 34" to 36"
    Inseam is about 29.75" with 2" to let down if needed.

    Reason for selling:
    I'd need them taken out an inch to wear them that will cost me $40 or so. Trouble is I don't like the colour at all and so won't wear them. I have worn them less than 10 times.

    Morning Gentlemen,

    Behind closed doors, what do you wear for foot wear around the house? Slippers, thongs? I'm looking to get something, l currently wear Ugg boots, thongs, slip on loafers when we have guests. l don't want to go all Hugh Hefner and all, just thought the SF think tank may provide some ideas...

    Very nice ToJ Double Rider, Ari.

    Can't pull of a biker jacket for the life of me so settled for a leather baseball jacket.

    I have this PRL blazer- it’s a Bradford cut with extra fine virgin wool ?. It is awesome ! I think this jacket will look better if you get your tailor open up the front quarters little bit. I have done this to mine.

    Pretty much whatever I was wearing outside the house. The whole 'shoes off at the door' thing does my head in. Although if I'm just mooching about the house I tend to wear an old pair of Birkenstocks.
    Growing up in a cold northern farmhouse in the UK, I'll never forgot my mum clomping round the house in clogs. She used to say the wood kept her feet insulated from the flagstones.....

    Ari - love the blazer! Definitely need some more length on those sleeves though.

    Dusty - I wear short length slippers from mortels. I have a soleless pair for inside and a soled pair for outside.

    Sometimes I go for coffee or brunch in them, much to my mother's dismay...

    Jumped on the Mortels site, would definitely be a comfy option, as for coffee shops [​IMG]

    Perhaps you could change CollinsStCowboy to NewcastleShepherd

    I'm asian so I dont wear any footwear indoors. It always feels a bit weird walking around with shoes on when im at my white friends houses.

    For our Sandgroper brethren (btw, good to see you posting again JohnsNotHere) - came across this in my travels.

    Could be an interesting development on the menswear scene over there.

    I vote for them as well. Leather uppers, fleece lined and rubber soles so you can walk outside and get the paper. Very nice - I sometimes wonder if I should mirror-shine them.
