    Was taken in Bruce, just near the A.I.S, which is on the western side, but only 6km from the CBD. There are a lot of Roo's there because it backs on to Bruce ridge and there are heaps of trails and bushland.

    He's got handmade shoes up the back for around $200 - and a pair pulled apart to show how they are made - a few pairs looked almost close-ish to ok in style for say $100 but missed out by something each time and at $200 there are other better options.

    The missus walked past the shop the other day and apparently the 'pulled apart' shoes are now in the window. I guess the question is how are they constructed and what sort of leather is it?

    Any ideas on how to spot Blake/Blake-Rapid/Goodyear welted shoes at 20 paces?

    Two in a row for him. He's found some form (and reliability) at last.

    Hello Aussies,

    The suede Loakes I posted a few pages back are up for sale on Ebay Australia. Without putting a link to the listing, a search for Loake suede brogue will bring them up. Alternatively PM me if interested. Not putting on B&S because I don't want to stuff around with int'l shipping.

    Cheers

    Hey quick Aussie Question - I am using a Deodorant Stick from Bodyshop, yes it is for men.

    I jumped onto this stuff to stop the white aluminium stains from destroying shirts.

    IS anyone using something similar that is easy to get locally? The Bodyshop one is $15 a pop, which is not too bad, although I burn through them fast. Just curious to see what people are using!

    Thanks.

    Half a size too small. They are UK 8.5 like my other 2 loakes, but on a different last (3625) which has come up shorter than the capital last. Only worn 3 times.

    Just look around for something that is a deodorant, without being an anti-perspirant.

    There are a number of brands around that do a simple deodorant.

    Of course, if you don't want any aroma at all, I'm afraid that I don't have any recommendations.

    I get a rash easily from deodorants/ anti-perspirants under arm - not been worried about stains. I use an Australian made tee-tree oil under arm balm. Its got an all natural hippie type blurb about it- but hey - I'm not proud. I can't remember its name now but its in a very unsexy non groovy plastic roll on longish tube thingo in a bad green. Its in a fair few chemists I know but not in all of them. As far as stains go have you tried soaking shirts in Nappi San overnight then washing- works wonders. Or if stain is bad work Nappisan into thick paste and rub into stain and leave a few hours prior to washing. UPDATE:http://www.thursdayplantation.com/ Its Thursday Plantation They have both deodorant and anti perspirant
