What are these devils? Vass?
Love eating at cha chaan teng - pretty much all I ate in HK was Indian/Pakistani food and cha chaan teng. Order from the grumpy auntie at the front counter, sit down at the laminate table and get a steaming hot bowl of tasty food and tea slammed down in front of you in a few minutes. None of this upmarket stuff such as staff using iPads to take orders!
I think that there is a niche here - look at Double Monk's success in Melbourne and now in Sydney.
Do many folks here own Christian Kimber shoes? Any thoughts / comments on the quality?
Ive ordered L'air du desert du desert morrocain which came with 3 samples of my choice so i had lonesome rider, lonestar memories, and incense rose thrown in as samples...should come in the mail today hope the hype is real
Several do - have a look at the Christian Kimber appreciation thread started by Melburnian member, Gerry Nelson:
Great little piece on what makes the Territory unique if anyone is interested in watching. Translations/ explanations available if required.
Great to see more peeps up the quality of their fragrance accessories, but keep in mind most of Tauer's stuff is pretty potent, with fragrances like LDDM for example, a light touch and less rather than more is usually the ideal amount to be smelling good without projecting far and wide.
I haven't looked at this thread in about... 2000 pages so apologies if this same question has been asked recently:
Is there a current "most economical" option for wooden shoe trees?
I've recently come into quite a few new paits.
There was some shoe tree talk a few pages ago, with a couple of blokes offering multiple pairs - http://www.styleforum.net/t/518027/...rst-post-youll-get-what-this-is-all-about/480
thanks for the tip, i havent actually smelled any of these yet. Just based on bunch of high reviews i decided to jump into the deep end and get one and at least get a sample of the others to see if any of them were less and more my kind of fragrance.
how would u rate the ones i got from tauer in your opinion, and is there another cologne you would rate higher? Been looking for a cologne that has a nice strong projection that lasts longer than an hour.
Been using an armani which is just about out, hence my purchase of andy tauer after seeing a mention of it, and ive used a CK in the past, but i found the scent is all but gone in the better part of 2 hours.
Herringbone has 40% off again. Including CJ. Code AUTUMN40
Try this I've only used samples but IMHO its got great sillage and lasts for ages http://www.mensbiz.com.au/fragrance/amouage-journey-man-eau-de-parfum-spray.html
Go into Mensbiz and get a sample of it also try Interlude Man
So heres the final product of my first bespoke suit by Charles Maimone. Accepting critiques for my refference for future suits. Pants i know are a tad long, might get them adjusted so they dont crumple as much down the bottom but they do ride up quite high already when i sit down. Suits actually a dark navy, colour doesnt photograph well unless in sunlight by the looks of it. Heres a link from my insta to see the actual colour https://www.instagram.com/p/BCcT9XsIL6l/?taken-by=beor_ong
