    With only half the girlfriend/mother tat visible. True Australian aesthetics.

    Don't forget the ubiquitous southern star tat. Oh wait, that's on the neck for visibility, alongside the postcode to show your allegiance.

    At the risk of offending our souther brethren, I hear it is common in some parts of Tassie too.

    Great meetup last night. My meet times were stuffed up - I got out @ 6pm. Checked texts. Wandered to Victoria Street. Dodged a few users and dealers in the lane. Looked plaintively in pub window at cold beer. Decided against a drink on my Pat. Caught the 109 toward home.

    Well, I hung around AT until it was either buy something or sod off, so I sodded off.

    New PJT lookbook - now courtesy of Sartoria Carrera - is an absolute brick. Seriously, I'm all for artfully disheveled sartorial nonchalance (or whatever approximate thing we're calling it these days) but this is nothing short of sloppy.

    The one strategically placed exception (imo) is the off white cotton suit, which is something PJ have been finessing for literally years now. Also wtf is going on with these ties? It looks as though it were merely suggested they be fastened to the neck.

    At least they're no longer parading around the porker in skin tight DB jackets and moose knuckle pants

    The extreme taper on the trousers is what gets to me - they look like those jogger pants with the elastic cuffs

    Hope it is not too late to recommend Mutekiya Ramen at Ikebukero. Get on Yamanote Line, get off at Ikebukero, exit on Meiji Dori, and it is about 3 mins walk. Go early as queues can be half hour long. Recommend the kani miso, which is crab roe infused miso soup base.

    Didn't end up going there yesterday, I'll probably make another trip over there since I'm here for a while. Still need to go to a owl or maid cafe


    I leave on the 20th to Hakone, I'll make the trip over there before I leave


    Thanks for the recommendations guys

    His name was PORTER not PORKER. Be careful what you say, from what I've heard he's best mates with fxh, Pink Socks and CHECKstar.
