    Agree with you on the slide on bars lennier ... have a great vintage one from Georg Jensen that has left impressions on some ties that I really liked and no longer sees any use.

    Prolly not silver or titanium, but tie rack sells one that has a nice dulled finish... This is what I use.

    Only about $40 too!

    And yes, it's spring activated.

    Dropped by Harrolds. I don't think I have seen that many random people carrying Harrolds shopping bag on my brief walk from little Collins to Collins. And I don't think I have seen that many people in Harrolds at any one time. Agreed on the sales ladies.
    I've blown my pocket this time round. So no more purchases in next two months.

    Totally agree. I rarely wear a pocket square these days - I did for a while when I was living in London. I would feel self-consciously over dressed at work wearing one.

    Try Herringbone, MJ Bale or Rhodes & Beckett - wait for the sales, and you should be at or under budget.

    Yeah thanks Charlie - I hardly ever look at other threads here - except occasionally skim through.

    All thats needed is a link back to the thread - no need to post the pics.

    You want the plates/taps cut into the sole and level with sole?

    I'll ask my bloke and another bloke who I suspect can do it who is out at Rosanna.
