    Can't say I didn't see that coming re RM Williams. Prepare for price rises and more restrictive trade with online retailers. On the flip side the marketing might get a jolt leading to more exports, albeit with most of the profits heading offshore now.

    Shame it couldn't stay all Australian.

    It's a damn shame if you ask me. RM will be turning in his grave right about now.

    Is there anyone who is a size 11 in the Carmina Simpson last? I have a really nice pair of suede loafers, but I'm thinking they are too long for me. (I sized up 0.5 when I bought them).

    Any reason you're looking at suede only? There's a lot of good calf/grain calf options around that range too.

    Yeah I'd go a penny loafer or a chukka (both on my 'to buy' list)

    Do you guys own suit brushes? if so where did you get them from?

    Some of the suits, the sizes are listed as unknown. Do you think it's safe to assume it would also be large EU54/56? Sucks there's nothing in size 38

    Maybe covered in the link above, but Loake do a few decent one in the 1880 range. I picked up a pair of the Pimlico from AFPOS on sale a while back, and they get a lot of wear with chinos, jeans and even with a suit. Very versatile shoes.

    Kent brushes. They have an eBay store. Double sided - one is harder for wool trousers and the other is for softer fabrics.
