    Sign up for free and they send you a code now via sms (used to be a gift card) to the value of $25 twice a year.

    After this 6 month ban period is over I think I'm not going to bother with much banning any more. Seems completely fruitless endeavour to save. When I stopped using money on clothing, I end up purchasing - here's a list: A new laptop, additional computer parts, video games, booze and a bloody car.

    No, auction sniper software. Forgot about them until I checked my emails at 8 o'clock and saw the confirmation that I'd won.

    Thanks.... Its a pity. I thought i had nabbed a pair of carminas to go with my G&G's in the same day.

    I think I will buy a pair from the armoury in the next few months anyway. Ill have to look into this sniper software though. I guess you still put in your maximum bid though?

    I think I might have fallen for the Edward Green Shannon.

    Correct - you put in the maximum bid that you are willing to offer and Gixen (or whatever auction sniper you are using) then waits until the very end of the auction to place your bid. You can fiddle around with settings to adjust the timing of your bid if you wish.

    A beautiful boot, but I think that it is only offered as a made-to-order option by Edward Green at present and costs somewhere north of $1200.

    For somewhat cheaper options, you could have a look at Carmina (albeit on the more rounded, Forest last), Rider Boot Co., or C&J's balmoral boot on the 337 last, which has a pleasant, soft-chisel shape. The latter is available through C&J Paris and through Foster & Co in London (and Foster's sells online - see here and here).

    Thank you kindly, sir!

    Beautiful! I've heard that Edward Green lasts are more suited to a narrower foot. Have you had any experience with them?

    This lot is also pretty damned droolworthy!

    Hi Gerry,

    Yeah Alfred Sargent actually sent me those photos as they thought I might approve...I love the burgundy calf/suede pair. I want to get them an wear them with jeans.

    Interesting blog.

    Thanks for the shoe advice,

    Only made-to-order you day, this link is my answer to that.

    That's my favourite pair as well. Not sure if you knew but those boots were limited editions made especially for a French clothing forum: http://mydayshoes.tumblr.com/post/21788916372/exclusive-and-limited-edition-boots-for-en-grande

    Hi Sydneysiders,

    I live in Canberra and am thinking about a trip to Sydney to buy some suits. The choices in Canberra are slim and the suits are generally a bit boring.

    Would I be best served in going into DJs and surrounds in Sydney?

    Or would Oxford street be a better destination?

    Having never been to Oxford street I'm not sure.

    I'd prob be willing to spend about $1000-$1200 per suit.

    Thanks

    Cheers
    James
