    Guys I've decided I need a couple of non-iron or easy iron shirts for when I ride my bike to work. Has anyone got any suggestions for shirts that are not too billowy and don't feel like they are stiff with chemicals? Thanks.

    I find when I ride to work I get drycleaning delivered/picked up from work and get changed/showered at work. If that's possible for you, that is a lot easier. :)

    I read an article in the NYT that the chemicals they put in non iron shirts are carcinogenic easier to change at work, does your employer provide a locker and change room?

    And as Roy and HG have said a 'weekend when too much sport is not enough" Go the Tigers and Go the Wallabies.

    I just fold my shirts and pack them well - never have a major issue with creases. I cycle in everyday. I hate Non Iron shirts - they feel wrong and do not wash well.

    As for those who signed up to R&B for the Discount - Pocket Squares can now be ordered online again. Just order one - no charge. Hope it works but we will wait and see. Worth a try.

    Spotted a gent in a pocket square and bow tie on my lunch break. I doubt it was one of you guys unless you were feeling inspired by PGs week of bowties?

    tried spit polishing for the first time on the weekend - not sure that I like such a 'hard' change at the toe cap like that, might try and blend it a bit nicer.
    Quite therapeutic sitting out on the patio in the sun doing it yesterday afternoon :)

    Yes sitting out the back in the sun and polishing shoes with the footy on the radio is a very enjoyable past time.

    Did you ever see Paris Texas? There was the great scene where Harry Dean Stanton's character polished all the shoes and boots in the house.

    And I managed to catch the last set of Miss Stosur winning the US open, great start to the week.

    Perhaps it was accidental, seem to be gone again as far as I can see!
