    The Hallam in Dark Brown Cavalry calf comes standard with a Danite sole. What colour are yours (originally?)

    Yeah I think they were beechnut.

    Dunno... own more than one pair of jeans? I never wear suits on the weekend unless I'm going to a wedding or a funeral. While others may disagree, I personally think you can be overdressed. I go to a barbie at a mates place, it's t shirt and shorts all the way.

    Yes, you can be overdressed, just as you can be underdressed in differing circumstances.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Only the warehouse or the Collins St store too?

    Gents, a bit of a strange request. My parents recently got burgled and one of the items stolen was an old pocket watch that belonged to my grandfather. It was locked away for quite some time, but we believe that it was 40+ years old when it was purchased 35 years ago and made of silver. We need to find a replacement, so we are in the process of looking for antique watch dealers. Can anybody reconmend any specialists in Melbourne?

    i had my pocket watch rebuilt at the antiqurium (spelled somthing like that), oppisite adriano carbone in the block arcade.
    its solid silver, 1880's but not worth all that much.

    What I posted below wasn't thought through just a quick google search - you would probably find out exactly what it is online and how much its worth.

    Have you got a photo? Theres some specialist search engines that can reverse search a pic and find it online - don't know what they are called.

    Ask here I'm sure some posters do a lot of searching for pics online - know what I mean, nudge nudge, wink wink, searching for pic online, wink, nudge......

    To be honest, I didn't know it even existed until Dad told me it was taken!

    I am doubtful that my parents have any photos, but they both think they know what it looked like. Because of that it will have to be them who does the searching. I was hoping that there might be someplace in Melbourne that specialises in Antique watches who they could speak to and get a bit of an idea. I turned them onto a few websites, and also passed on your list fxh, thanks.

    In addition to Antiquorum in Block Arcade you could try The Watch Gallery, cnr of Elizabeth and Little Collins (opposite Antiquorum).

    What are you wearing in Australia?
    Guys, alot of the photos posted here are from cooler environments. So I was wondering if everyone could start posting pics in here (new or old). I'm still learning, and I would like to get a feel for what Aussies are wearing.
