    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't know - I guess the best way is to ask the sales fellas in the shop - maybe they'll know - maybe some cobbler on the way to work.

    Mate, go to Brices in Castlereagh St. They'll give you the good oil.

    It's the house brand of a Brisbane menswear store that also carries Borrelli, Isaia, Zegna, Sutor Mantellassi and other high-end brands.

    The Richards & Richards house label isn't as good as the above labels, but it's a perfectly reasonable shirt - well-made, without any handwork.

    Unfortunately, it's not my size, but good luck in selling it on to someone.

    Hi grant,

    I should be there early but I'm not sure what Richards plans are as far as closing the store or staying open between 5&6 before the show starts. I'll be there around 3 I hope and will take an hour to setup etc, then I'll need to go and check in to my hotel and get ready to come back. I'll ask Richard tonight anyway and let you know.

    Thanks JP.

    I don't really have a collection shot of all of them together, but this is the closest one I've got, of 2 of my favourites:

    Appears to be a lot of watch aficionados on this thread, so I thought id ask for advice...

    With an Omega speedmaster 40mm would you keep the issued band, or put a leather band on it?

    Cheers

    Thanks G Banger! So pardon my ignorance, you can interchange bands on the one watch. Thats awesome! Don't want to go all cyber stalker on you but are you able to post a pic. Either or thanks man!

    You certainly can, DB - you just need to remove the "spring bar" that holds the bracelet or strap in place.

    Depending on the watch, this can be easy or a bit more difficult, but it's much easier if you have a spring bar tool. You can pick them up easily on the internet - I can't remember brand names, but I know that there are one or two brands favoured by WISs (Watch Idiot Savants, as some watch fans call themselves). Most spring bar tools will have a pin on one end and a fork on the other, so as to assist with spring bar removal.
