    Its due to the lingering miasma in his clothing that I never wash his clothing with ours. I suppose it wouldn't be so bad but we use an eco friendly wash powder which is scent free and you can smell the crap on your clothing. As it is if he leaves before us for school the house smells like a chemical wepons accident.

    Sorry, but this looks like a Frankston getup for the local race meet

    Sorry, that one goes whoosh over my head. Not a race-goer, and haven't spent much time in Frankston either (other than in lycra).

    You think? Not to get defensive, but there was a distinct lack of ugg boots, moccies, flannels, tats and fags in my garb. I suppose you must see some very different bogans from my experience. Each to his own, I guess.

    Matching tie/square/cuffs are the uniform of two breeds - bogans and Denny Crane..

    And the shirt could probably be used for tinder

    I think the jacket is just a bit too conservative with the more vibrate tie and shirt.

    OK, I've been metaphorically biting my tongue, but this is more than enough ...

    If people here imagine I am even remotely interested in hearing smartarse comments from them about what I wear, they have a grossly exaggerated sense of their own importance. This is not why I take the trouble to do this. It's exactly the same bullshit that made me give up posting on WAYWRN. It's a real shame that it took so little time for the Austalian Members to sink to the same depths.

    Well said CD. Abuse unnecessary. Come on Australian Members. Perhaps we need a tie to bind us together. Oh, wait...

    So THAT's what they mean by the ties that bind!

    CD, don't take it to heart and pleae continue to post. I really like those cufflinks, by the way!

    Just got my Loake Aldwych’s from Herring Shoes this week. Very happy to join the Goodyear club and am genuinely content with the service provided. Anyone lurking who is thinking of buying from Herring remember you get VAT off the price (or I’ve committed unintentional tax fraud). But thanks for the help about lasts etc guys, it was useful.
