    Hi There,

    This is the button down roll, but it still only works open necked really. With a tie certainly doesn't have the same look as say a nice brooks brothers button down. I have spoken with them in the past about doing a softer un-lined collar, which they can do, but to be honest I probably won't order anymore cottonwork shirts to find out as I'm in the process of adding shirts to the Henry Carter range for around July/August release.

    Cheers
    Jason

    First time showing what I'm wearing... I work as a designer so it's all fairly casual.

    Those shoes may or may not work with the rest :embar:

    Some new pants from Epaulet.

    The office is split 50:50 on whether they're good or terrible which is pretty much exactly what I expected.

    Royal blue twill? Damn they're bright. I'd never wear them myself, but I still like them. IMO you should stick a nice fat cuff on there... Pants cut with no break (when wearing shoes) & 2" cuff look especially tasty combined with boots in winter.

    Quick one gents. Endless has 20% off most of their shoes (including all of their AE range) with $5 for shipping & handling. Just apply "friends2" code on checkout.
    I just bought AE Fifth St in dark brown from $350 down to $285.

    Yeah royal blue twills, softer than the other twill trousers I have form there. They'd look great with a cuff but at 6'3" I'm never going to have a cuff unless I get them MTM/bespoke.

    So I have recently developed what I think is a bone spur on the back of my right heel, making certain shoes pretty uncomfortable to wear in that area. Anyone had one of these before? Are they treatable? Will I ever wear double monks again?

    just went in there at lunchtime, bought a pair of Canali elastic sided boots for $220, were marked as $620. They seem like very nice leather.

    Had a look at the Churches, the only ones that appealed were marked as $9xx, so down to about 440ish, which was a bit above what I feel like spending at the moment....

    Coincidentally, I also picked up the 5th Street last night in the same colour.

    I think it's $10 shipping? Not that it matters.

    Don't forget eBates as well - right now they have a 13% rebate for endless, which is as high as I've ever seen it go So that's another ~$35 cashback down the track. http://www.ebates.com/stores/endless.com.htm?query=end&position=1&type=suggest&store=9543

    So its $250 delivered right now. Not bad. Almost as cheap as buying during a Black Friday sale.

    I have these from basketball on the inside of my right ankle. AFAIK the only options are surgery (getting them cut off), or NSAIDs to relieve the discomfort. Maybe you could try a soft heel pad of some sort?

    without making any political commentary, the caption on this picture is "Paul Keating, right, arrives at the ACTU conference's black tie dinner"
