    I guess I shouldn't be surprised - I'm just glad I'm in such good company [​IMG]

    Prices on C&J are very reasonable, 485 for benchgrade (and maybe 585 for hand) I think. The rest of the brands are a bit rich for my blood, all in the 1000+ category but I didn't take particular note as I honestly haven't looked at the prices of EG, JL, G/A Clevery etc.

    As the article says they've also got some great accessories and saphir products available.

    It's a great shop and definitely worth a visit.

    Didn't know what "Marvis" was in the background. Interesting google journey...

    Marvis; a classic toothpaste created using a long, precise traditional method which guarantees a rich, smooth texture and is therefore especially effective in heightening the intensity of the flavour and creating a refreshing protective and whitening effect. Imported from Florence Italy Marvis is a gorgeous statement of elegance to any bathroom.
    Marvis reinterprets the concept of toothpaste, turning a simple daily act into the pure pleasure of life, discovery and taste, day after day.

    Great post, thanks for that. Those blue velvety looking loafers in the fourth pic on the right make me very excited.

    Is that what they are?

    I think I will consider making it my life's aim to live in slippers like that from the age 40 onwards.

    Yeah, pretty sure that's them. Luca (Rubinacci) is regularly photographed wearing them, along with lots of other bold coloured items in typical, "I don't give a fuck, I'm Italian" fashion :)

    Might as well add me to that list, although I may be swayed to a pair of Christian's loafers depending on the finished product...

    I have a pair of Red Wing 9016 Cigar Beckman's in size 7.5US for sale if any of you Aussies are interested. Brand new, selling due to wrong sizing for $190.

    ^^ DR, I can confirm they are Rubinacci as stated by TBM. Apparently, the store is stocking slippers, PS, and ties from them. I didn't go to the effort to append each photo, but the source URL has some good commentary. Slippers really have the F-U look and feel to them.

    I've tried Marvis whitening mint - most definitely a step above the usual Supermarket fare, at $13 for a 75g tube it was a bit much for me to be using regularly. It certainly worked a little in the whitening department

    Last weekend my wife and I splashed out and bought a Melinda Harper painting for the living room for our anniversary present. Can't wait to get it hung.

    Now that she is sweet, I jumped online and bought myself some Creed MI, which fragrancenet.com had on special. :happy:
