    BTW Whats wrong with a big Hermes belt? it complements my RL Polo with oversized horse, Ed Hardy sunnies, snake skin boots from Zu all put together with a splash or ten of Joop, let me run my fingers through my heavily gelled hair.

    Likewise I kind of agree with you. Persol are very distinctive glasses and I can see how you could call some models fussy or overdesigned. I would imagine it may be a little awkward if you walk into the same room and another chap is wearing the same pair of Steve McQueen specials you are. Then again, Persol make some excellent frames, not all of which have "Steve McQueen" written on them (that is, frankly, pretty try hard).

    I would recommend that you guys have a look at Old Angler for leather goods, particularly the Toscana range. They are made in Italy from full grain vegetable tanned leather, and there are a myriad of different options and styles. They are very appropriate for a city briefcase and are quite distinguished. I have seen the default mid brown colour in person and it is beautiful. Best of all they are mostly between 200-300 euros. So about $300-400 AU inc shipping.

The leather is full grain vegetable tanned (pelle al vegetale), the bag is made in Italy, the style is classic, distinguished and city appropriate. I have seen the default brown colour in person and it is beautiful. Best of all you can get a bag shipped to Australia for about $300 to $400 AUD.

    Yeah, that tie is awesome.

    The white PS seems a little plain to me though, given the colours of the outfit. I would've gone with something like a deep red.

    Having said that, I certainly defer to CW's sartorial charm [​IMG]

    Hey Jason, your shirt collar seams to curve down a lot more than mine. Do you wear collar stays in yours?

    No I take the stays out, just personal preference really. Could also be the angle of the shot though making it look more curved.

    So my new shoes from the HerringShoes Christmas sale arrived this morning. Very happy with 'em, especially the Loake Knightsbridge.

    The Timberland boat shoes feel a lot more solid and nicer than the crappy Dek pair I have been wearing recently. Must say, HerringShoe's service is absolutely brilliant - the UK to Australia in 3 days with free shoe horns and polish matched to the colour of each shoe (sans the boat shoes of course). Very quick at replying to e-mails too!

    Much as I like Sunspel t-shirts I find their prices are a bit over the top, sales increasingly poor and international shipping costs excessive. So, does anyone have experience with similar quality alternatives that I could investigate? I find the fit of the standard Sunspel (non-Riviera) range to be slim enough generally, so alternatives comparable with that would be fine. Thanks for any info!
