I once heard a splash of talcum powder in the shoes would do it, but that may have been myth.
No it works. Amanda Vanstone recommended it on TV according to my wife! Go figure...
No just a rip off that has made some people exceedingly rich and who are recognizable every weekend in the social pages spending their profits on various expensive knees ups. Eventually they become the subject of an ATO audit or worse a client of Korda Mentha in a wind up action.
Definitely going to check that out. What is the cut like? And do they have many sizes?
Definitely trying this tomorrow! Will report back for any other squeakers...
Steven at Herr Blick is amazing. He does really good classic styles and is based on Collins Street. He's very pricey though.
I have heard good things about the Melbourne Barber Shop as well. I will go there in a couple of weeks to check them out.
Anyone in Melbourne interested in some full shoe trees or other stuff from Bexley? I'm about to put an order down for 5 for 59 Euro trees and a pair of midnight blue suede oxfords. Any one want to combine an order and save on some shipping?
Shoe trees should work out to be about $23 each including shipping we can meet up in the CBD after work.
I would love to pick up five myself. I'll send you a PM.
Had a look at some pictures on the internets. Shoulders look a bit extreme...
Brilliant looking shoes - just wow!
That's surprisingly inexpensive. I remember looking at Bexley a few years ago and their shipping costs were horrendous at the time, which dissuaded me from using them. $23 a pair is a great price for nice cedar shoe trees including shipping.
I know they had a 42L & 44L in Navy on Friday.
I'm going to place the Bexley order Monday night as the marginal savings on shipping beyond 15 pairs is pretty minuscule since the initial fixed portion of the shipping cost is now way eclipsed by the variable portion. So far I have my 5, Checky for 2 and Smetana for 5 trees. It is at 18.129 Euros per pair shipped and according to Google it is roughly $22.36. Unless some shitstorm of a day happened tomorrow that change the rates drastically we're looking at $23-23.50 each tree which I hope is enough to cover the xrate spread. So for those in Melbourne interested in shoe trees (especially beneficial for those looking for only a couple of pairs), this is the last chance to sign up and pm me how many pairs.
That is still pretty much the case. It is not worth it to just buy a couple of items and really need to buy quite a few items to use the set discounts to offset the shipping cost enough.
Buying 1 pair of trees costs 55 Euros which is quite insane.
