    Heh! When I looked at my shoes, I saw the same thing so I'm in the process of getting them put on. Amazing how fast that edge gets worn.

    DIY or you've taken somewhere? I go to Coombs in the stand here in Sydney. Good work although the caps arent flush...

    Apparently there is a flush captoe guy around Wynyard but still havent found him

    I take them to a cobbler here in Melbourne. The caps aren't flush either but I can live with that.

    I've been considering buying some Meermin shoes myself but I was under the impression that they weren't taking any more orders until the online shop is up?

    I have a pair shipping from Spain today. I used the contact form on the website for first contact and I was emailing back and forth within minutes.

    Gerry! What are the model of those new boots? I can't see them on The Armoury site? They are delicious.

    Also - for those who were thinking my suit was ruined after my indiscretions on Friday night. It is alive and well - sleeve is still a bit crushed where I was frantically trying to remove the stains before dry cleaning - but the good sir that took it from me certainly wasn't lying when he said he thought it would be fine!

    Also - smells amazing, whatever they're using is great!

    I hope never to go through that experience again...

    Standard black calf Bluchers on the Ama last. I'm on a mission to go back to basics and correct some elements of my wardrobe. I have three solid color Hober grenadine ties arriving in a week as well. :)

    I opted for some dark brown split toe bluchers. With a rubber sole I'm hoping they'll be a solid winter casual.

    Pulled the trigger about a week ago on a pair of dark brown calf dbl monks. I have to say that the customer service was phenomenal! Speedy courteous replies and if the pics and purchase photos are anything to go by, superb value as well.

    Nice! Let us know how you go with the fit - I was thinking about the same model myself.

    So i think that the thrifting gods were on my side today! I snuck away from work for a cheeky shop and i found the best thing that i've ever thrifted.

    Quite possibly also the nicest thing I own.
