    Harvey Norman should know that they can't get away from that.

    On a brighter note, heard about this service this morning on Sunrise where for a small sum of $12000, you can buy a young 18-25yo Asian girl's virginity plus 2 full days of companionship. Just a heads up should budgiesmuggler end up requiring our consultancy services,

    Checked out the Paul Smith store. The interior is lovely and the staff nicely (I like that kind of thing) obsequious. I didn't try anything on but the jackets looked great--a lot of them in the very light unlined unpadded Boglioli style. The shoes were hideous.

    The prices are over the top but maybe not wildly so: socks are $35, pocket squares $55, a cotton jacket was $740.

    Considered it but then realised how many potential PJohnson suits that is.

    ^ Having to spend two days with them afterwards is a deal killer.

    that actually seems pretty reasonable, considering I paid $999 for a cotton Thomas Pink jacket last year (yes, they saw me coming....)

    I can confirm 50 euro to Aus. And I must admit I'm a bit disappointed. They ship TNT which is fine, but it's quite a slow ship for the cost. Mine were posted on the 3rd or may and are expected to arrive on the 16th? Even with such heavy shipping, they are still good contenders. Will report back with pics/impressions when I receive mine.

    That is pretty steep for that kind of transit time. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

    Are Meermins the latest craze after Carminas that followed C&Js?.

    I ordered shoe trees from Endless.com on Friday evening and they arrived today.

    I celebrated my birthday last week and I got myself a birthday present from The Armoury - ordered on Friday morning and arrived today!

    Nice tie Gerry - it's not by any chance the black / purple Sam Hober grenadine?

    Maybe Blahman. I missed the first crazes. Meermin are more suited to my budget so whilst i might envy the G and G's, Carmina's and C&J's that other have- i can afford meermin.

    Yes but much cheaper (150 /250 euro)... The also do very cheap non Horween shell (not avaliable atm). Its also not a pita get ala DC Lewis.

    You forgot Vass/ other A/H shoes in your summary.

    Word on the street is very good value but... the lack of stock makes it hard to be sure.

    Eta:

    I can only see the increase in quality in the area between JL/EG/G&G/StC and Loake/AE* as a good thing.

    Happy happy day today. My watch is finally alive again! Replaced half the internal organs though so it's basically a Frankenwatch now.
