    I believe GF has already bought it, so I took this just to be an inquiry as to what I think of it, same as you might ask somebody what they think of some shoes.

    I've worn Lonesome Rider twice now and am still ambivalent. I don't like it as much as Lonestar Memories, but it's much better than the latter for office purposes. I've been holding off until cooler weather so I can give a few leather fragrances a run to compare. I doubt it will supplant Tom of Finland as my favourite day-to-day leather scent.[/quote]

    Yes, you don't want to do too much research into Etat Libre's fragrance names. ToF is on the mild side: try Secretions Magnifique or Don't Get Me Wrong Baby I Don't Swallow.

    Or my favourite Putain des Palaces layered over Fat Electrician.

    My FB feed has been telling me over the past couple of days that Herringbone is introducing a "Heritage" line. Today I received a link to it:

    http://www.herringbone.com/collections/mens-heritage-shirts

    Four shirts - two white, one light blue, one French blue with a thin, white stripe. Three "satin" (ie shiny) shirts, three with French cuffs. The sky blue shirt has very ostentatious, unevenly spaced pick-stitching along the yoke that appears to be done in a contrasting collar.

    I could be wrong, but if Herringbone honestly expects people to pay $250 for those shirts, I suspect (and rather hope) that they're mistaken.

    They look terrible. Don't worry, some poor sucker will get sucked in by a sales assistant.

    Buday. And who makes these shoes on the Arca last? Just wanting to know so that I can avoid buying them by mistake.

    ^ ^^ These sound like spaceship names from an Iain M. Banks novel, not fragrances.

    Double Monk opening party last night at their Sydney boutique, 2nd floor, Strand Arcade.

    Had the pleasure of meeting @tchoy , @nabilmust and catching up with @incontro . I suspect other StyFoDudes were in attendance but not known to me.

    Co-proprietor Chris Schaerf (sp?) was our host for the evening. Apart from the shoes themselves, Balvenie single malts were a highlight - especially the double cask aged 17yo.

    St Crispins and Alden are new brands on the way.

    A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    Another highlight - the catering from La Rosa next door.

    Next big event for DB Sydney - Saint Crispin trunk show 6 and 7 April.

    I can't tell from the posture, but I think the gorge should be lower, not higher. In fact, I feel the jacket should be rotated forward to have a cleaner chest/give it more drape.

    Corthay.

    The design itself is very nice - minimalist and elegant - but the long, extremely chiselled last does not suit everyone and Corthay also tends to make them in unusual colours with a very antiqued finish.

    I am very disappointed by the lack of an "SF shoe circle" photo - especially at a shoe-related event!
