    With no show socks it's a bit hit and miss finding the right size that is both "no-show" and doesn't slip down. I bought a five pack from moccsocks and they've worked out very well.

    Disgraceful that people think they can show up looking like they're just dropping in to a funeral on their way to the beach. Paying your respects indeed...

    Melbourne guys, I'm staying a St Kilda tonight & tomorrow, looking for a decent venue to eat/have a few quiet drinks tonight without paying a fortune for taxis. Friendly atmosphere would be great too as I'm flying solo tonight

    TIA,
    Rob

    Actually the last time I wore a felt hat with a suit was on a hot summer's day at an outdoor funeral. Glad I had it too, even though I probably looked like Johnny Cash.

    Agreed 100%.

    When my grandmother passed away, I flew up to Bundaberg for her funeral. Would have been half a dozen of us in a suit, out of the 100+ attendees.

    I get that Bundy is the land of rum and coke, sugar cane and unemployment benefits, but my god.

    A Hawaiian shirt, shorts and VB thongs doesn't say I'm sorry for your loss.

    Cut me some slack, guv. I just moved here from Singapore less than half a year ago, and I bought them while I still lived there.

    Yes, you can't get them here - but it doesn't negate it as an option. It's not as if no one here has a passport and doesn't travel once in a while.

    Hair cuts in Canberra, can anyone give me the low down. Possibly not the best time to be asking with Jason likely to be busy (congrats btw), but I'll try anyway...

    Plestor - I've only ever been to Erindale Hair Centre in South 'Berra. I know they're moving across the road in the next week or so, may pay to call first.

    I'll be interested to see if there are any other recommendations too.

    I don't disagree. Jason, however is the most active.

    Thanks for the recommendation tho, I'll give them a shot given the are hugely closer (I'm inner north fwiw).

    Thanks for the thoughts guys. I'll check them out in the Gourmet Traveller guide I found in the lounge here ;-)

    Wagyu and Truffle foam sounds interesting and unique... I'm tempted already!

    The shanghai dumpling place on Little Bourke is fantastic, and I'm planning on visiting Movida tomorrow. As for loafers without socks:

    Re haircuts, I have a barber 3 doors down in Fyshwick from our office, so I go there. Mark Daley on Tennant St. Great barber, very weird guy (in a funny way).

    I also go to Christis Barbers next to Gus'es occasionally if you dont want to book and are in a hurry. And in Queanbeyan where I live, there's 3 or 4 old Italian barbers that are great. There's plenty of good proper hairdressers around if thats your thing, just that my $60 haircut days were over a long time ago.

    Bought a pair of clippers 3 years ago and haven't looked back/paid for a haircut (well, apart to upgrade to a better set!).
