I'm really worried about the acoustics of the town hall.
Just put the first of at least 7 Hbone and MJ Bale suits on sale in the B&S Forum.
This one's the Navy Washington Model released last S/S. Core range. Osaka cut. Going for $120 postage inclusive.
Watch this space, more to come (e.g. MJ Bale core Charcoal, HBone Navy PoW check, HBone Sharkskin Blue Ortona etc...)
And lotsa ties too.
Hmm can't see it up yet. Your not a 40r by any chance?
Have you decided to become a naturist or something?
God no if you doing Mahler its the full soup and fish thank you, somethings in the world need to be upheld.
Well I have been listening to Gustav for thirty years, a very nice German girl turned me on to him in 1981, I do wonder considering I have 60 odd recordings of the individual symphonies and two boxed set, yes it could be seen as a problem. But one I do enjoy.
Nah... going 'minimalist'!
Relocating overseas in a few months, and can do without the added bulk (I have too many suits and jackets!). Will prolly pare down to just P Johnsons for suits, jackets and pants.

But Ashkenazy is a legend, so I guess I'll forgive him.
thinking about purchasing shoes shown in this thread:
what colour would be most versatile? charcoal and brown pants
My preference would be for walnut or merlot, personally. Either of those colours looks good with charcoal, and the walnut will look good with brown trousers.
Bear in mind that AE lasts are quite "low" in the instep and so if you tend to have a high foot, you may have a bit of trouble with the fit - at least in my experience.
As an example, I can wear the C&J 337 last (as stocked by Herringbone and American Tailors) with a bit of a "v" in the laces, but when I tried on a pair of AE Park Avenues, without even trying to do them up it felt as though the top of my foot was being squashed.
bugger, my foot has a high instep. hard to explain but i have a big bone on the top of my foot. should i look elsewhere then or can they be messaged and stretched over time?
I'm a bit the same with funny feet and in addition orthotics which push the foot up a bit. Consequently closed laced shoes are always tight, open laced much better. Also different lasts on same brands fit differently and same size in different brands fit differently.
You can get shoes stretched across the width easily if your cobbler knows their stuff and has a few stretch machines of different sizes. Make sure you don't get a cowboy but someone who knows and cares about shoes. Unfortunately not a given with a lot of shoe repairers. If shoes are stretched across width then that gives either more height or width.
It becomes tiresome after a lifetime and one tends to then just stick to a brand and last that works, irrespective of the seduction of the vast array around. Nevertheless I still try other stuff, but if I definitely NEED something I stick to tried and true.
Only browns really work well with brown toned trousers, luckily most brown shoes tones seem to work with most brown pants.
You've got just three hours to make the most of the factory outlet sale at Zambelli.
I was there at 9am and came home with 5 brand-spanking-new, sensational, Australian-made cotton shirts, and I got change from $250. And I even left some for you guys.
As Molly Meldrum would say, do yourself a favour.
In other news, on Monday I bought some new L'Stony shoes, and took them to Brice's in Castlereagh St for Topy soles and heels.
Soles cost $45/pair, heels $35/pair.
Is this a good price?
