    Fwiw I'm a 9uk in the 337 last and the 9uk is tight across the ball of my foot and the Robert last is a tad loose in the heel.

    If you are e width or wider I'd go up half a size on the Simpson

    Has any of you Masterchef watchers noticed how bad Gary's MJ Bale jackets are looking this season? I don't think it's the jacket itself but they are constantly putting him in these super soft shouldered coats which do no favours to his proportions (also not helping that all the judges look like they are putting on about 5kg a week). I reckon would be much better with something a bit more padded.

    I think you're right.. Gary seems to have gained a bit of weight.
    Although, my main gripe with him is the length of his trousers!

    Collini shoe polish? Any one know where I can buy it in Sydney? Preferably CBD. Was going to go to the Cloakroom for Saphir but now they are past tense its option number 2.

    Huh, that's a good point. So basically, more padding if you've got a big arse / gut, less if you don't?

    I think it's less to do with his weight and more to do with his very sloped shoulders. But his chubby arms and chin(s) don't help either. For the record I don't blame them for stacking it on, if I had all that food thrown in front of me all day I'd be the size of a house!
