    Firstly I like the look of it, I know it's not everyone's cup of tea though.

    Secondly I opted for half lining since I run hot in a suit. So I couldn't get a mobile pocket put in under the arm.

    The ticket pocket is actually pretty much perfect to put a mobile into. Tom at PJs suggested this to me and it works great. I have never bothered even unpicking my pockets before. I sometimes have far too many things stuffed in my inside pockets so it's good to be able to store it somewhere else.

    It isn't too big. It weighs about 800g. It can fit into a satchel.

    With tracking, to Norway, it is very expensive $80+. With tracking to the States, it is only about $35.

    A package arrived today from the Armoury containing a pair of the Carmina Simpson, just in time for Christmas. I'm really impressed/surprised by the quality of these things! [​IMG]

    Good thing the world didn't end yesterday. [​IMG]

    Happy Xmas to all.

    ^nice pick ups on the shoes and the suit

    The sole edges on some of my shoes are getting ugly and am wondering if you guys use sole edge dressing or regular polish to bring the colour back to worn edges?

    In my experience, regular polish/conditioner works fine. It's still leather. Edge dressing just seems like a wank to me.

    Try www.ship2anywhere.com.au - $57 with DHL - tracked and delivered within 2 days.

    In other news - played around with our white popover with a jacket at home tonight (yup bored waiting for santa). Im going to test run wearing it in a few ways over the holidays for a photoshoot in the new year. We are out of stock in most blue sizing now and white is very limited. Given the higher than expected demand we will do a re-order in January and also expand the fabrics. Open to suggestions on what fabrics would be good in a popover.

    Thanks Rob - I just checked and it certainly is the cheapest thus far.

    I like the god quality military/RMW style free belt they give out with the shorts.


    I agree on the shorts from LE and will be a wearing a pair today. Very well cut and comfortable and different colours.

    As for the LE Irish linen shirts. Very impressed - especially as you get correct sleeve length (if left after sale) - and cut and made well.

    I am waiting on a couple more that have been held up in the mail along with some other Xmas presents!

    The more you wash them the softer they get and with Irish linen they will last for years.

    A cool Yule and Happy New Year to all Aussie compatriots.
