    Thanks Romp.
    But I've already been duped into a pair of brass stays. Might as well get some use out of them. FWIW I reckon they're pretty good for business wear. I wouldn't wear them anytime other than cbd.

    Can somebody wake me up when people stop talking about the Led Zep snooze-masters? They're better than 1500 mg of Epilim for making me nod off. Thanks.

    Slayer>all. On music though, I've been getting heaps into 80s Techno. Acid House is fantastic. Somebody take me to 1989 Chicago.

    Was hoping Nabil would answer here. I order via his recommendation - got about 15.

    Note the postage is about the same cost as 15 hangers but still a lot cheaper than elsewhere. Nice hangers (esp for price).

    Given I paid some much for postage I was a shame I had to chase them up and they took age to arrive but I will give them the benefit of the doubt that that was a one off.

    +1 on plastic collar stays - I prefer the really thin, flexible ones as they give a bit of shape to the collar but still allow it to curve and flex.

    I used to have quite a collection of metal collar stays as British shirt manufacturers seem to prefer them over plastic, for some reason. However, I felt that they made the collars a bit too stiff and lifeless. Plastic's ideal for me as it gives a bit of structure, but not too much.

    PS, what beautiful tweed. Can I ask who made it?

    I was actually planing to wear one of my 2 green jackets, one is a herringbone, and the other is a 'Paddington Bear' lime green with purple overcheck...(it actually works!) to the work Chistmas function tomorrow - and the cooler weather might let me.

    Who's going to the Dress for Success function next week?

    I missed the recent meetup - apologies ....

    The tweed is from Robert Noble and it is a Hackett jacket.

    Got my Christmas party tomorrow too. Original was to wear something like this with my new string loafers but might need to see what the weather decides to do.

    Hieratic! (Standard comment from Black Sabath fans)

    As for earlier comments about the 1920's there was a post war economic boom and the Roaring Twenties probably fuled by coke according to a history of Kings Cross I've just read. It wasn't till October 1929 that the Great Depression began.

    One problem with KrisFlyer is that you don't earn points for Virgin Australia flights. But for that, I would move over to SIA/Virgin. Some of the SIA routes (eg Singapore-Rome) also fly older planes with dated seats, etc.

    Nelson Mandela the last great saint of the 20th Century has passed away. Had the pleasure of seeing him up close at St Mary's Cathedral and the Opera House, such a remarkable man.

    You've got Facebook, you've got Twitter, you've got Tumblr, you've got a telephone, you've got SMS, you've got skype.

    Can we not have R.I.P messages on a clothing forum, please.

    If you aren't spending much then there's no point paying for a CC to get the rewards program. The annual cost will probably outweigh the reward, I'm afraid.

    The SQ program is KrisFlyer - SQ's loyalty program. Some australian CC's earn SQ points directly, but most people transfer via amex.


    With the VA/Etihad codeshare I'd be pumping my miles towards Etihad. Pity their redemption program is so locked out.

    On a fashion related front - I've been kopping like a madman recently. Not home until xmas, so it'll all be sitting there, just waiting for me. Can't wait!
