    Due to Canberra’s inclement spring, last night 4c. I decided to buy some long cotton pajama pants Ha! Since when do PJ’s have pockets? What the world has come too? Next Target?

    This isn't a thing? Admittedly ive spent years wearing trackies to bed but picked up some proper PJs during the last Mr Porter sale and they came with two very hand pockets. Most useful for determining whether I've put them on back-to-front.

    That is one explanation but what else are pockets useful for on a pair of PJ’s?
    My winter PJ don’t have pockets so it makes me think that pockets must be a summer thing. Either way its a mystrey to me.

    Probably a thing now, with more people walking around with their mobile devices on their person.

    Also, apologies for the lack of updates on the shoes. I haven't had time to take photos in the daylight. I'll try my best to get them done this weekend.

    Off the top of my head:

    Carmina - Rain last - 8.5UK - Chocolate suede medallion captoe (comes with Carmina shoe trees), with box and dust bags

    EG - 8UK - brown penny loafer, with box and dust bags

    EG - 8UK - black velvet slipper, with topy that I added after, with box

    C&J - ? last (I will check) - 8.5UK (I think) - Brown wingtip, with Dainite sole, with box

    C&J - 348 last (I will check) - 8UK - Burgundy wax calf, with Dainite sole

    Vass - F last - 42 Eur - Chocolate suede chukka, with trees, box and dust bags

    EG 8s with some carmina and cj 8.5s seems like an odd mix, usually it would be the other way around. Did you store them for reasons of fit?

    These days I usually use PJs - to regulate temperature better. I like the old school ones - long sleeves, long pants- not these T shirts and shorts things. In summer I use light cotton ones in winter often light flannel. In most cases cheap ones from Target, Dimmeys are are the best. Most have pockets.

    I'll often come home and change into PJs and long dressing gown (kimono) and slippers for the evening. Its comfortable and presentable enough even if theres visitors. I like to imagine I look like Hugh Hefner at the Mansion. Pockets are handy.

    From the archives U11 Rugby finals. A bunch of dads are sitting on the sidelines.

    Chris(doctors son) prop forward:”I’m going to get a six pack and some Viagra and go out and have some fun tonight.”

    M(winger)my son
    asks innocently:”what’s Viagra dad.”

    Profound silence on the sideline as half a dozen fathers right ear turns to my reply.

    Me: “ it’s a heart stimulant son.” “Oh.” Then the silence erupts in laughter at my response.

    I stored them because I was packing up and preparing to go back to school, but plans changed.

    As I'm unpacking boxes now, I've come to terms with the realisation that I don't really need that many shoes. They've always been a little too big for me due to a combination of factors, including weight loss, and bad estimation of sizing when buying the shoes. So I'm offloading anything that isn't a 7-7.5UK.
