    I was planning to wear these nice Irish linen LS Landsend shirts I grabbed including two in plaids which don't seem to wrinkle too much. The Boss/SWSBO immediately KO'ed the idea so it will take the appropriate spousal defiance for it to actually happen.

    By the way, if Elvish is interested in replacing his coin pouch or if any other Australian SF members wish to emulate TBM at a reasonable price, I noticed that Peter's of Kensington were advertising coin pouches in an ad in the Weekend Australian.

    A quick look at their website reveals the following:

    Laurige black, pebble-grain coin pouch for $24 (was $48)

    Laurige brown, pebble-grain coin pouch for $24 (was $48)

    I'm seriously tempted to get one, although I don't know how much Peter's charges for delivery.

    I deposit my jar 2 times a year, usually comes out around 80-100 dollars. Not the be all and end all, but solid cash none the less.

    My coins go into the Myki machine at the end of each day, so I don't have a big stash. Except for 5 cent coins - what are they good for?

    I have two jars one for shrapnel and one for brass, when the brass hits $50 its cashed and joins my clothing or other indulgence slush fund.

    Orange woven paisley acquired.

    For anyone in the legal fraternity - I need some knick knacks for my xmas list. I was wondering what sort of executive pens you'd recommend for regular use? anything else useful for placement?

    Im not legal (although I have a 2-week Jury Duty stint coming up - anyone know what sort of case only takes 2 weeks in the Downing Centre?)

    Anyhow I have a pen obsession too lol

    Lamy i like for everyday

    Montblanc I have but never use (Although heaps of management/partner types use them for signing) and ST Dupont are nice and are smooth.

    For everyday ud want ball point or rollerball though (i prefer ballpoint, less mess)

    Grab both and I'd recommend a parker :) Waterman's makes the best ink (dad says).

    thanks for the thought but tbh, i can only ever carry them in a jacket as my dress pants are too tight so i cant justify it. i'd rather just use my coin jar that sits in the office.

    I use japanese fountain pens, namely platinum and salior. They latter I find build slightly better built but I prefer the nibs on the the latter. I also have a cheap lammy for those time when I expect it to get thrashed.
