that doesn't sound wrong at all.
Saw an ad for the Punk Poet Laureate John Cooper Clarke playing in Sydney but WTF is he doing playing in Cronulla, getting a bit tired of Canberra not being on the touring radar. Now where did i put my Docs?
Just a reminder for tomorrow's catch up. Hope you all can make it!

Is there anywhere online I can purchase waxed laces?
I got some decent knitwear last year from Bossini, of all places - got a few woolen v-necks that have held up pretty well. I got a few John Smedley v-necks from eBay as well. Just recently, I got a couple of Hackett shawl collar cardigans - one from Jules B and another from a seller on eBay. Both brand new for about UKP80 each because they were being sold as end of season stock (they're selling for $420 in DJs). Also got a super-warm Aran sweater off eBay courtesy of the eBay Round Up from Put This On.The nicest one I have is a secondhand blue cashmere Brooks Brothers v-neck sweater off eBay - feels beautiful.
This looks like pretty decent knitwear as well.
Thanks Geoffrey, completely forgot about STP.
Thanks Gerry, looks like there is some good stuff.
Anyone have experience with this Scottish Collection mob and can comment on their quality? An example here.
Not looking likely that I'll have time tomorrow to come in to town especially for the meet up I'm afraid. Hopefully next time if not.
Just a heads up that the website is now up and running bar a few small changes being made over the next few days to design etc.

Avoid the Henry Bucks labelled knitwear, its rubbish. Pilled before the end of first winter on three different jumpers. From memory these were $260 plus jumpers. Thing to remember with all wool/cashmere is that you get what you pay for, unless from HBs, then you dont.
THE funny grab of the day Ernesto...!!
On this point by Selvaggio, IceBreaker is doing some innovative, perhaps less classic, knitwear that is good quality. I have had several pieces over the years, all with stood punishing treatment and each year I pull them out and they as good as new.
Oh and dont forget reading all the thoughts of members here each day...maybe after waxing shoelaces if done !!
