    i agree with this - very cool shoes. only thing is these get a little warm during summer months

    these are similar to mine,but as you can see very versatile.

    Where can I look for odd trousers with inseams long enough to cater to my longstanding desire for 6cm cuffs (I'm also 6'1, problem...) and tab adjusters? Nowhere?

    How does Luxire work with trousers? You self-measure?

    Clothes brushes seem to come up very frequently at second hand stalls in community markets (eg Rozelle, Glebe, Paddo etc) and in thrift shops - perhaps people don't use them much these days. Often they are in sets of different brushes for different purposes. I got mine at the markets. About $20 for four brushes.

    Thinking I might just buy that bigass kent one and maybe a regular comb because the tortoise shell looks significantly more pimp than the Big W ones. Cheers guys :D

    Chukkas are a godsend in Australia as they blend in but still look good whereas getting away with brogues and such for casual is hard and they are probably my most worn casual shoe. Dude your leg ending looks tiny!

    Anyone coming to the trunk show thursday night, Ludlows will have the Kent brushes 30% off for the night only.

    TBM, I'm sampling up at the moment some trousers that will have side tabs. Will talk to you about it Thursday but will have all those bells and whistles, side tabs, un-finished hem, split waistband, made in Italy and come in around the Howard Yount price. Prob won't release till spring though in four seasons and tropical weight.

    Any chance you'll be there a bit early Jase? My wife kindly bought tickets to the Adam Hills show which doesn't leave me a lot of time for browsing the wares at Ludlows Thursday night :(

    I'm 6' tall and I've never had a problem with having enough fabric left for a 5cm (2") cuff and I still end up with a couple of inches in fabric offcuts.

    Therefore, I could be wrong, but I'd suspect that most OTR trousers with unfinished legs should have just enough fabric to accommodate you (although, of course, you may well have a considerably longer inseam than me, as people of similar height can have different inseam lengths).

    With regard to OTR trousers with side-adjusters, however, I think that you'll largely be out of luck.

    I've seen the occasional model from RL Polo/RL Black Label/RL Purple Label with side adjusters and you might be able to pick up a reasonably affordable, new-with-tags pair on eBay or somewhere similar.

    Otherwise, some British stores such as Cordings or Pakeman, Catto and Carter do sell trousers with side-adjusters:

    Yes, JM - unfortunately I need a longer inseam length. I've got long legs, and wear my trousers relatively high, too, all my trousers with cuffs are too short.

    HC - that sounds awesome and looking forward to those :)

    Yes, Rob sounds best. Measure my inseam and I promise not to go all Alan Garner on you ;)

    Hi everyone,

    First time poster here and I am looking for some help regarding heel replacement (Sydney).

    I have a pair from Bally and it appears that the the sole and heel are "integrated" - one piece. They have been worn quite abit - is there anyway to replace them?

    Thanks in advance.
