I'd buy that RB windowpane in a heartbeat if their suits weren't cut like something Visy would make.
The only times Australians ever pay any attention to anything the poms (English) do happen every few years when they host The Ashes (cricket).
+1 Haven't been in the industry nearly as long as CD, but have to agree. Given what I see some of my colleagues roll up to work with on their feet, I think I a pair of classic brown oxfords, blucher or even dare I say, double monks are the least of your problems. I often rock the dark brown Hallam's in the office, that said, I suppose its like all things clothing wise, it has to complement the outfit and not stand out or look out of place.
I think there seems to be a bit of 'mystique' about a higher standard of dress code in the finance industry and banking in particular. As much I dislike it, your typical banker dresses just as unfortunate as the rest of the 'smart business casual' modern day workforce. In fact, I would imagine the sight seen in a modern day bank's dealing room would make baby sartorial Jesus cry.
I have worn brown double-monks in the Supreme Court, and I know I'm not the only one to do so...
I work at one of the US bank in Sydney. Our Ceo wears scuffed square toed shoes with 2 seems running form either side. He is at over5/6 mill a year easy. Drives Porsche carera 911 turbo convertible. I see him time to time in lift . I have only seen him the same pair of shoes every time!! Most guys at work has only one pair of black square toe shoes .
Bottom line is clothing/shoes are kind of a hobby. Most people in Australia just don't care.

Gentlemen, I have just posted a PRL 38R jacket in the classifieds, offering local pickup in Melbourne CBD.

Fwiw, I've been called out on brown shoes in the past. YMMV.
Anyone interested in getting some leather for various uses? I've been conversing with a sub company of Horween in America about getting some shell to play with and am wondering if anyone else is interested in getting some to play with/to have made into leathergoods locally. They also supply various other leathers, but they have reasonably large minimum orders so we'd need a few people before we started looking at other types.
