    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    On brown shoes, poor shoes in black are still more apropriate than brown, one can be poorly dress yet still correct.

    What is with the Brisbane hate we'll even pull up strangers in the street for wearing "brown (shoes) in town".

    NB: I've actually seen that happen.

    Wow, didn't mean to open that can of worms...

    My views on brown shoes:

    -I don't generally see clients when wearing brown shoes (only a few times that come to mind, one client is let me think..."pastoral". I turned up in brown shoes, chinos and navy sports coat - my boss turned up in a suit without tie - this is in rural Australia...I would say I probably fit in quite a bit better...my thoughts are to dress appropriately for the situation)

    -I have worn a suit and brown shoes to a publishing/media client wear the general dress code was jeans and a shit. This client was in a major city so I figured the suit with brown shoes was fair enough.

    -When in the office wearing my brown shoes I still dress better than most Partners (who sadly wear black suits and black square toed slip-ons).

    Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer from Men's Biz. I use it on my hands and heels. Paraben-free and non-greasy. Good stuff.

    First off, thanks for the advice on polish colors.

    Given I work in an industry that sees me and my workforce in hi-viz gear everyday, when I do get the chance to visit head office, I like to take the chance to express my (still developing) sartorial style. I actually find black shoes somewhat boring to look at and wear, and prefer the look of a brown of dark brown shoe, especially with a mid to dark grey suit and purple check business shirt.

    I guess that attitudes in conservative businesses (banking, law practices, etc) dictates dress codes to a far greater level than I ever imagined... Live and learn, I suppose.

    Hahaha - I read that the first time, saw that 'wear' should be 'where'. Thought to myself "Yeah pretty amusing".

    Then I read it a second time....LOL.

    Ok - just home

    Meeting = 4 men including me + 6 women.
    All men had ties.
    One had navy patch pocket blazer/reefer/sc and charcoal pants, ankle length black socks showing sexy white skin, + black blobby but ok glued shoes
    Other 2 had suits one baggy ill fitting but ok, black shoes - nothing special.
    Other had well fitting but olive coloured suit and bright pastel tie and well fitted - comparatively and black shiney corrected grain chisel toed bending up at end.

    All nice intelligent people. I didn't note what women were wearing.

    Thanks guy's. Well I think Toby once you take away our Styleforum prejudices, then he really is quite a well dressed guy. From my point of view he is also a good fit for my brand. High profile obviously but well respected, well groomed and all of that so it's not just the way someone dresses that made me approach Charlie (well his manager), even though I'm selling clothes.

    As I mentioned the wardrobe department for Channel 10 dictate what they wear on the show, so he even may not get to have a huge amount of input in to what he wears but all I can hope for is that the products speak for themselves (which they do) and he wants to wear them because he likes them. But yeah I think you could "style" him not dissimilar to how he dresses now but with a bit better proportion. But that's not up to me to decide I'm afraid. But it's exciting all the same.

    P.S Ernesto, I'm still far from being both rich and famous... but i'll definitely still talk to you all!

    You don't have to eat it if you don't want to. Just rub it on your hands.
