    I'm still waiting for a proper Knightfall adaptation with Azrael.

    Totally agree - this is the best film I've seen for quite a while (I'm more of an arthouse fan than blockbuster). Don't know about the sartorial angle, but it's a great story, mostly true, and Mads Mikkelson is his usual intense self. Alicia Vikander is highly decorative, and we're hopefully going to see a lot more of her.

    If you're up for a giggle, you might try Hysteria, about the invention of the vibrator.

    Couldn't agree more about Massimo Dutti.
    I had been on the hunt for a briefcase for about 6 months and then I picked up one of the these in London a month ago:

    http://www.massimodutti.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/duttigb/en/30109452/256502/408031/BRIEFCASE

    It actually cost me £90 although I think they may be out of stock now.

    The leather is ridiculously soft, I'm talking about calf skin gloves soft (If anyone has a pair from Chester Jefferies it's the same quality).

    Reading through the Briefcase Porn thread and looking at stores around Melbourne I have a hard time believing that people can find value in spending $700+ on a bag.

    OK I dont think Im one that should be wearing dubmonks. Even on the tightest hole they feel a tad loose and i like a firm fit. They are alot softer and more comfy than my black calf oxfords so its a shame - ill stick with laces in future.

    Might see if my mate wants em otherwise ill sell them to whoever wants them.

    Surely this is a last issue not an issue with (double) monks in general?

    Jacket collar gaps... is the only way to not have it to buy bespoke?
    When my arms are in resting position it's not a problem, like with most people I suspect, but with my jacket buttoned and my arms raised it becomes quiet unsightly.
    Why does it occur? - just a bit self conscious about it!

    I'm looking at picking up a pair of burgundy derby shoes...I'm just a little unsure about the color, how versatile is burgundy?

    Ask yourself this (and I used to ask it a lot to gents in Fletcher Jones who automatically put there hands up in the air when trying a jacket on.

    Do you walk around like this all the time, with the hands raised like a zombie? No I didn't think so. So my advice, if it's sitting well in resting position and when your generally walking around getting about, 99.9% will not notice it so you have nothing to worry about. The .01 % that will notice are right here!

    Thanks mate...

    [​IMG]
    No probs there... (sleeves look quite funny here, not sure why - not normally like this)

    [​IMG]
    Good ol' hand on shoulder trick, still buttoned

    Yes you are right of course... I was thinking on occasions such as weddings where I am required to dance (have a few coming up) and I suppose most men will have the same problem... still!
    Would an athletic / swimmers (broad back / shoulder) shape contribute to this problem?
