    Probably biz cas type outfits. Jeans, navy or grey slacks, pale coloured chinos, black at a stretch. Pretty much anything except autumn colours, I think.

    I've not tried this myself, but Cash Converters look to have some good options...

    JRolley, the suggestion to have a lok in Cash Converters and also some of the secondhand stores can be a good one. I once saw a nice Oris, in great condition and at a great price, at the large secondhand place in Paddington (in Brisbane) but didn't pick it up and, of course, by the time I'd changed my mind and gone back the next day, it was gone.

    For a new watch, you could look at a Timex or Hamilton if you want to be a bit dressy and conservative, and put the watch on a grosgrain strap, or if you want a bit more of a tool. Watch, you cold look at getting a Seiko 5, as it is a great watch at a great price.

    Thanks Ernesto. They didn't have any stock in store of most of the things I was interested in, so ended up buying online.

    Saw the American Tailors sale ad in the front page of The Age sport section. Crockett and Jones for $350. Castagnia suits for $1595. Drakes ties for $79, Aster shirts for $160.

    California Dreaming - any comments on the range of shoes and suits on offer? Much Isaia on sale?

    Im not good at that price range (not being a snob just outright have no idea and wouldnt want to give misinformation) ... Fwiw i like the timex and gnomonowatches in singapore has military style watches from germany that look decent too. My watch tastes are vintage and dress rather than sport so i dont wear anything on a bracelet but i do have a vintage rolex sub that i wear on nato. Everything else is leather strap.



    Nice finds! I use to have similar navy loafers

    Having owned cj and carmina i prefer the fit of the cj.. Ive been through most of the carmina lasts and struggle to get a proper fit.

    Cj 337 fits me like a glove.

    It'd be a form of torture, if you made me wear those double monks.

    Don't fight it MS, they would team up nicely with your Tarocash strides : )

    Been having a great time over Christmas watching (and re-watching) the latest Bond movies, with a new/ increased focus on his wardrobe. Skyfall at the cinema, then re-watched Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

    Great range of casual and leisure wear in Casino Royale with a few nice suits mixed in.
    Then in Skyfall: his awesome range of suits and formal wear, with some nice casual gear ie sports jacket (http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/product/barbour-x-ki-beacon-heritage-sports-jacket)
    Had to laugh at the logistics required to keep Bond dressed for Skyfall. Im guessing he just has one of these (http://www.creativeboysclub.com/vintage-louis-vuitton-wardrobe-trunk) [​IMG]


    I loved the sleek black dress shoes he wore throughout Skyfall, and found they were all C&J (http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/tags/products-skyfall). The ones in particular I liked were the whole cut: 'Alex'.
    C&J's are a bit out of my price range atm, so I ordered a pair of 'Herring Chaucer II' Ive been eyeing off instead (http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&shoeid=5196&colourid=2712&brandid=6), which come to about $300 AUD delivered with cedar trees.

    Really liked Skyfall BTW...

    Timex Weekender - the only watch a grown up man needs. Boys and man-boys may need to pay more and have metal bands and funny dials.

    http://www.amazon.com/Timex-Unisex-T2N747-Weekender-Slip-Thru/dp/B006K6DDKM/ref=pd_sbs_watch_4

    If you wanted to really lash out and have more than one watch and spend nearly $70 aud you would do well to consider a white face silver trim Easy Reader with a brown leather strap for simple understated utilitarian elegance and flying slightly below the radar and a black faced silver Weekender with several NATO bands for day and casual and a stylish change.
