    Hey Toby, hope all is well with the little fellow!

    Thanks for the kind words, I think the collection pretty much covers any occasion although I wouldn't deem it perfect just yet [​IMG]

    This speaks volume about the forum. I thought we were all pretty much 20-somethings. Gen-Yers trying to do their best by helping each other out. But, that wouldn't quite make sense, because I don't know anyone between 20 and 30 with such epic shoe collections. Puts the 'experience' of the 'Aussie' group into perspective for me. Decent spread for the kids though: 18 years old to 10 days old.

    So, does anyone use shoe trees with their driving shoes, even if they are suede? Rob, have you tried P Johnson's rubber/mesh navy loafers? They look incredibly durable and comfortable. They are priced similarly to Andy Tom's.

    In answer to the kids question above, I have two sons, 23 and 27. Neither of them seems to have inherited any sartorial genes.

    I guess there's a relationship between being 20-something and being interest in menswear?

    Michael - I'm Gen-Y.

    I'm a law student starting my Practical Training Diploma next year. I'm not from a professional background so I've had to learn the etiquette for myself, suits are part of that. I've read Flusser's Dressing the Man and Manton's The Suit until the words have come off the pages, and I should be getting a copy of Molloy's Dress for Success next week. My professional wardrobe currently consists of:

    x2 RMW Craftsmen shoes, black and tan
    x1 RMW cowhide belt, black
    x4 White MJ Bale shirts, x1 MJ Bale blue shirt
    x2 HC ties
    x9000 Bonds socks/undies

    Next week I'm getting the two for a grand suit deal w/ extra trousers at MJ Bale, a few more HC ties and and a tan belt and that should about do me for a while. I keep my wardrobe as conservative and Australian as possible which suits me to a T.

    I wear them with jeans and a plaid shirt literally everyday. I plan to chuck them in every once and a while with a suit just to mix things up.

    Probably a little informal for a job interview/appearance but they're fine for me in the legal centre.

    You won't regret it, have 4 with more on the way.

    I would say, though, that instead of ordering 2 straight up, you're better off ordering 1, accepting that it probably won't fit quite right and will be a bit of a wash, tweaking the measurements and then ordering as many more as you want.

    I use gixen all the time. Actually I can't remember the last time I put a bid in via ebay itself.
