    Can I buy shoe trees in Melbourne? I know there is McClouds, but is there anywhere else?

    I know the woodlore from Amazon (ex-Endless) has them, but express shipping cost an arm and leg and I can't be bothered waiting for their snail mail service. Any suggestions?

    Good news, got a link to the source of this? I've got some trousers that lost a rivet button on the fly that I've been meaning to get fixed.

    What's the difference between Irish and Italian linen? Is Irish just heavier or are the major difference? Looking at getting a linen MTM suit and can't decide on which fabric swatches I want to test.

    Nice Guy Gerry! While you're taking shoe questions, what sort of longwings do you own?

    Hi Toby, I have a pair of vintage burgundy Florsheim Imperial cordovan longwings with the v-cleat in the heel - true gunboats! One of the most comfortable and versatile pairs of shoes I own. I wear them with everything from jeans to suits. If you want to get them more casual, just put on some coloured laces.

    I've got a pair of vintage Florsheim Imperial longwings with a v-cleat heel, too, but mine are made from cowhide rather than from horsehide. I agree with Gerry - they are very comfortable and very versatile, able to be dressed up and dressed down.

    I wore them yesterday and there are a couple of photos earlier in this thread - click here.

    Congrats Lachy.
    May I ask which Court you are an associate in? I have some friends who've done it and RAVE about it!

    I've recently picked up the following:-

    Lands End

    These are good/awesome -->
    Men's Regular Shorewood Saddle Sleeve V-neck Sweater (my new favourite sweater - in "dark camel heather") $17.49 Awesome
    Men's Regular Fit Tailored Short Sleeve Pima Polo Shirt (in blue / red and currant) $23.80/ea Good
    Men's Regular Plain Front Tailored Fit Original Chino Pants (these are cool, kind of a maroon colour called "bittersweet", cuffed) $29.99 Awesome

    Haven't worn these yet, but they seem good -
    Men's Regular 9" Plain Front Seersucker Shorts (deep blue stripe) $24.99
    Men's Regular 9" Plain Front Embroidered Spring Chino Shorts (blue lobster) $19.99


    These are all shit -->
    Men's Regular Long Sleeve Buttondown Chambray Shirt (red)
    Men's Regular Tailored Fit Paintbrush Shirt (mineral yellow) $10.49 (the fit on both these shirts is awful, feel like I'm wearing a wind sail, "tailored" my arse)
    Men's Drifter V-neck Sweater (navy) $28 (well, not shit, but heavier than I thought it would be, and I don't like it half as much as the other one)


    Also ordered some tailored Hyde Park OCBD's in blue and white.

    Herring (sale items, saw how cheap they were and was like "fuck it, why not") :-

    Herring Brands Hatch

    45

    F - Medium

    Brown Calf


    £37.46
    Herring Oulton

    45

    F - Medium

    Cognac Calf


    £41.63
    Herring Brooklands

    45

    F - Medium

    Brown Calf


    £37.46

    Also picked up a HC tie, a bunch of tiebar.com ties, and a couple of belts. I've also got a $100 Charles Tyhrwhitt voucher I'm thinking of putting towards one of their fitted navy blazers (I really want a tweed one, but I think it'll be too heavy coming into summer, even for Tasmania).

    Speaking of HC ties and Ludlows, I still need to buy my robes/wig/bar jacket ($2000 for the lot, *sigh*).

    Excellent! I like the look of the dotted one.

    What width are the knit ties, by the way? And how much do you think that you will be charging for them?
