    Guys I got an email from Italy overnight an opportunity to do a second small run of the Australian members green ties. Basically another client is ordering the same fabric and they will have a few meters left over. I'm checking to see how many it will make up but it may only be 2-4 ties.

    I need to let him know by COB tomorrow (Italy time) though. So if you are interested please let me know by PM asap. Price as before is $99.95 with $5 postage and a 20% deposit due at time of order. They will come with next seasons stock early-mid August. To the few that have pm'd me previously I will send you one soon.

    Ta

    Thanks to all for the slow cooking tips.

    When the wife pregnant with the son, she developed a roast lamb fetish. One we still use is a slow cooked leg of lamb, (by the way do you seal the meat first?) I start it at 100c but its placed in the baking tray which I have seal the meat in and then put in a bed of rosemary which I have had soaking for a hour or so. I leave it then for a good 4 hours then in the last hour I crank it up to 180-200c.

    Anohter way is to slit the lamb in various places and get sprigs of Rosemary striped to the stalk and wrap a glove of garlic in posciiutto around the rosemary and stuff it all over the lamb then once the lamb is sealed give it a good splash of aged balsamic viniger and put in oven at 150c for 4 hours.

    Also cast iron is best thing to bake in.

    Also article in SMH today about Sydney tailors featuring P Johnson.

    Bijan used (still does?) to teach coat making at UTS, where Daniel Jones (of Zink & Sons) was one of his students. Nice to see Robert & Daniel getting a nice write-up.

    Speaking of Zink & Sons...their Oxford Street premises has recently undergone renovations, which are still undergoing. Place looks great :)

    Interesting write up.

    It kind of gave me the impression that they were painting Patrick's approach in a somewhat negative light? Did anyone else get that?

    To wrap up this story, I took the shoes to the cobbler, he sanded back a small section of the buckle, and lo and behold, it is brass underneath some gold coating! Happy days, and a big plus to Herring for attention to detail. Cobbler says acid is a big no no. I will have to think of some other way to get the gold coating off, to reveal the brass underneath.
