    Finally getting the hang of this shoe polishing thing.
    Also just in Melbourne for a bit, anything exciting happening or catch ups/drinks planned over next few days?

    Lol, they even have a pair of EG Galways made up, what can go wrong with $270 USD for 3 pairs of shoes when there is no description on the styles, lasts on the website, just Instagram pics and how to join.

    I think this says it all...

    I'm one of those people that think if you can't get the simple stuff correct then how can I trust you to do something more complex?

    Completely seperate to this form I was looking up mullets to explain the haircut to my girlfriend (who growing up overseas didnt know mullets) and there was an article saying that a show from australia at pitti was going to feature the mullet.
    I wonder what the reaction to that must have been.

    Lol, hence my hesitation on the shoes and searching the forum didn't give any results so I assumed they are crap.

    The idea has now been erased off my mind.


    I'm heading off to Sydney this weekend, I was ideally looking for an oxford toe cap and maybe a brogued boot. Any other suggestions apart from Double Monk and Loake?

    I know this isn't what you may be looking for, but given that these are Edward Greens and they are half price, I thought I would share with the rest of the members here as well:

    MJ Bale sells Cheaney now too (and also what appear to be overpriced rebadged made-in-India Loakes), however I don’t know how the prices compare to either of those.

    The Made in India Loakes are great. Mine lasted 4 years (I ironically left them in a cab in India, they were still going strong). They were my most comfortable shoe as well. Of course, I might seem biased as some of you know I now work in India...

    Hi all - before I post on Ebay, I recently bought a pair of size UK10 Carmina Rain Chukka Boots in dark brown suede directly from Carmina. Sadly they are a half size too big for me. I have worn them only once. Willing to let them go for $400. Please PM me if interested. I am based in Sydney so happy to meet up or post. Cheers, Mike

    Hi everyone, I am thinking of getting a bespoke suit sometime soon, and was just wondering if anyone has any experiences with the bespoke suits from thefineryco, in particular the Zing Chen ones? I am also travelling to Hong Kong soon, and was considering maybe getting a Ascot Chang bespoke suit there. Would love you hear everyone's opinions.
