    Sounds intense wonder how many litres of water a day you consume and what sort of diet your on?

    For me face cleanser daily Anthony logistics or Kiehls oil free cleanser or Urths Face Wash with white tea and ginseng on a daily basis. Once a week with Triumph & Disaster Rick & Roll Suicide Face Scrub or Clinique Face Scrub.

    Wet shave with Proraso Sapone on a daily basis.

    Plus two litres of water a day.

    I have a bottle of that stuff - not sure of it's the same cask that one the award, but it's a bloody good drop. Patrick the owner/distiller is a lovely guy too really happy for him. Hopefully it gives the industry down there another boost, though a big part of their strength is the craft nature of the operations, in contrast to Scotland, and that's what makes every cask unique.

    I would prefer side adjusters personally - aesthetically nicer and easier to mix with different coloured shoes.

    wtf - side adjusters are about 50 times better than belt loops.

    Conservative estimate.

    I don't know. My first PJ suit was my first outing with side tabs and the almost instant reaction from people was "where's your belt?". I still do find it a little strange wearing a suit but no belt.

    My mantra is, 'once you go side adjusters you don't go back'.

    Saves you money, saves you time, you can wear any shoe colour (that matches your pants/suit). Personally, I'm a fan. :p

    "Why do you need a belt? Don't your pants fit?"

    I get all my pants made with Daks(button) Adjusters. I much prefer it to the side tab. All my pants have it now, and when I get shorts made up for summer, they'll have it too. Denim is the only thing that should have belt loops.

    Belt or side adjuster or braces - just personal preference . I have only 2 pairs with side adjusters. Not a big fan - I prefer a nice leather belt. It just breaks the outfit a bit.
    On a another note received and altered my new Mabitex sartorial grey trousers. Just amazing - awesome soft fabric and there are pick stitching every where including all along side seam and also on belt loops. Will post details pics tomorrow.

    Is this a black and white Borrelli suit? Also, what did you do with all your Isaia suits and Brioni shirts?

    Chinos too. That way you can wear them with a tshirt/people mistake them for moleskins.

    Re the great trouser holder upper preferences, so far its belts, side adjusters /tabs, or Daks with buttons, or a combo daks with elastic. I have seen ones a sort of modified daks with elastic and a metal fold over clamp, like ones on watch bands. Never worn those though. I've been thinking of a self belt, of same material as suit/trousers. Anybody here done that?

    As my old mate Henry Fonda would say:

    How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can't even trust his own pants.

    Hopefully the price doesn't go up by too much for the next batch, would be nice to give that a try. Otherwise might be cheaper to take the Spirit of Tasmania and do a cellar door run.
