    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Talc powder? Something to absorb the oils rather than smear them all over. I reckon pour on, leave for a day or two, then dust off. Seems to work for most oil stains on my clothes.

    foxy - hard to tell without feeling it (as the actress said to the bishop) but it looks like as if the lining has twisted and / or been ironed into that shape?

    You could easily undo the tie stitching yourself - c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y - possibly fix it and then stitch it up yourself - c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y -

    Definitely.

    I once got a laksa stain on a brand new Zegna tie. Sent it off to the dry cleaners as a last ditch attempt and it still haunts me to this day.

    Besides, you ice the area, then scratch off protein stains!

    Blend the powdered form into one's protein shake. Waste not, want not, as my grandmother used to say.

    On topic; brown suede penny loafers recommendations. Have at me. Almost wearing through the heels of my driving mocs that I've been wearing casually, and wanting something where I can replace the heel once the rubber is worn down. Next level heel walker, reporting in.

    Probably got me on that one [​IMG]

    Seriously though, I like penny loafers. The Aldens are a classic, though I don't mind the C&J Mertons either.

    I had a magnificent Italian tie. One dot of soy sauce and RIP. Ditto a food stain that gets really in = tie rooned.

    Anyone interested in an affordable casual jacket, David Jones has a few MJ Bale navy wool jackets on sale for ~$150 until Monday. Was at Highpoint Melbourne DJs. Available sizes are 38, 40 and 42. Unfortunately the only 36s available are in Adelaide.

    Standard MJ Bale slim fit, notch lapel 2 buttons. pretty casual soft fabric (very very slight smooth fluff feel to it), half canvassed and made in China.

    Worth a shot for casual on a budget (if you haven't noticed/familiar with me, I'm always about stuff on a tight budget)

    Second mr Nelson.

    I've got a pair of brown brogues from Carmina on the Rain last. Lovely shoes, lovely last. I imagine these are around the $400AUD mark?


    Are these two both C&J? They both look great!

    Split toe, non-split toe, I'm easy. I'm very modern, in that way.


    If only one could shrink shoes down multiple sizes :(

    But srsly, went to Highpoint DJ's as we had vouchers to spend post engagement party. Scored some ballin' Vera Wang 56 piece fine muthafucken' dining set for like $200 marked down from $600. Shit was incredible. Also the DJ's is actually nice, unlike the old section of Highpoint.

    They're on the Carmina online shop - http://www.shop.carminashoemaker.com/articulo.asp?idarticulo=3640215 for about 330 Euros including shipping. The Simpson is one of their narrower lasts so if your feet are wider, be prepared.

    There are also these ones from Meermin:

    Charles Tyrwhitt also has some.

    I think wurger's is George Cleverly and thus considerably more than $400au. I could be wrong though.

    Every shoe question in this forum always seems to end up honing in on Carmina or C&J. I don't think you can go wrong with Carmina if you already know your last.

    PR, if only you had a friend who had messaged you the other day, linking you to some beautiful brown suede GC Penny Loafers for a mere $401 AUD.

    In search of another rain coat for winter, I wish Mackintosh's weren't so fucking expensive.

    Both, the brand, along with high end Mac's are quite expensive.
