    Thanks guys. I'm impatiently waiting to wear them everywhere, get them beat up and then spend an episode of Dexter polishing them up nicely.

    EDIT: Except when Hannah McKay is on screen. Then I'm looking at the screen not my shoes.

    agreed. i have 3 "herringbone sydney" ties compared to 2 old "herringbone" ties. the newer ties have thicker weaves in silk and lining - means a bigger, slightly looser knot and are all 9cm wide. preferred the older ones that were just 8cm.

    Mmmmmm Yvonne Strahovski. Really making me want to find some time to catch up on the last couple seasons. For more of her (sexy spy outfits abound) check out Chuck :)

    FedEx it is and it costs an arm and a leg and real bitch to get hold of if you miss the home delivery. For what you pay the service is not good.

    I sent my mate to buy his first two work suits at MJ Bale today as part of the $1000 deal... I feel like I have done him a great service. To think what he might have ended up with....

    Oh, lucky I put my work address for this delivery.

    What are people's thoughts on tassel loafers? Actually, scratch that. What are people's favourite way to wear their shoes? E.g. Are you the type to polish them weekly with a specific colour of polish or to scuff them up or ... XYZ.

    I'm just curious :)

    Oh nice one man :)

    EDIT: And you've likely saved him a little bit of money, too. He owes you a drink!

    My last friend that I gave advice too (in the pre MJ Bale Melbourne days - I said to go to Azzarro, failing that Herringbone or MJ Bale at DJs) flagrantly disregarded my wisdom and ended up with a disgusting suit from "Joe Black the Tailor".

    On feet, except on Fridays where I wear them as gloves.

    Joe Black quality doesn't seem too bad, not a fan of the cuts though. I've suggested Azzaro to a few friends, everyones come away very happy.

    Correction: he walked out with 2 suits, 6 shirts and 1 tie - damn good salespeople in there!

    LOL - is the tie solid navy?

    When I worked at Herringbone, I wouldn't let a man leave the store without purchasing an 8cm wide navy twill tie (the old Lake Como ones) if he didn't already own a similarly serviceable navy tie.

    Haha no it gets better - the tie was "one of those knitted material ones".

    He is now asking me about the "etiquette on wearing those pocket hankerchiefs". MJ Bale gave him two for free as well...

    I've created a monster...
