    First off, thanks for the advice on polish colors.

    Given I work in an industry that sees me and my workforce in hi-viz gear everyday, when I do get the chance to visit head office, I like to take the chance to express my (still developing) sartorial style. I actually find black shoes somewhat boring to look at and wear, and prefer the look of a brown of dark brown shoe, especially with a mid to dark grey suit and purple check business shirt.

    I guess that attitudes in conservative businesses (banking, law practices, etc) dictates dress codes to a far greater level than I ever imagined... Live and learn, I suppose.

    Hahaha - I read that the first time, saw that 'wear' should be 'where'. Thought to myself "Yeah pretty amusing".

    Then I read it a second time....LOL.

    Ok - just home

    Meeting = 4 men including me + 6 women.
    All men had ties.
    One had navy patch pocket blazer/reefer/sc and charcoal pants, ankle length black socks showing sexy white skin, + black blobby but ok glued shoes
    Other 2 had suits one baggy ill fitting but ok, black shoes - nothing special.
    Other had well fitting but olive coloured suit and bright pastel tie and well fitted - comparatively and black shiney corrected grain chisel toed bending up at end.

    All nice intelligent people. I didn't note what women were wearing.

    Thanks guy's. Well I think Toby once you take away our Styleforum prejudices, then he really is quite a well dressed guy. From my point of view he is also a good fit for my brand. High profile obviously but well respected, well groomed and all of that so it's not just the way someone dresses that made me approach Charlie (well his manager), even though I'm selling clothes.

    As I mentioned the wardrobe department for Channel 10 dictate what they wear on the show, so he even may not get to have a huge amount of input in to what he wears but all I can hope for is that the products speak for themselves (which they do) and he wants to wear them because he likes them. But yeah I think you could "style" him not dissimilar to how he dresses now but with a bit better proportion. But that's not up to me to decide I'm afraid. But it's exciting all the same.

    P.S Ernesto, I'm still far from being both rich and famous... but i'll definitely still talk to you all!

    You don't have to eat it if you don't want to. Just rub it on your hands.

    Gents, my days as a cyborg are over. Tomorrow I go under the knife to have all the metal holding my shoulder together removed. That's a titanium plate holding my humerus together, and 9 screws through the bone at various points. Plus some general cleanup of the shoulder joint while they are in there, and maybe a hunt for that gold watch the surgeon misplaced a while ago.

    I'll have a bone like swiss cheese afterwards, so it means 2 weeks r&r before I can do anything much. After that, I should be able to move my arm a lot more, now that the cutlery drawer isn't getting in the way. Hope so, anyway.

    re the dry fingertips

    You should really get a GP opinion first as it might be due to some mineral/vitamin deficiency or some thyroid problem or it could be eczema. Or it can be a fungus.
    Winter is the season strangely enough for dry skin in fingies.
    Also it may well be over washing with harsh detergent in washing dishes or washing hands.

    Consider using not soap based washing stuff.
    You can get hospital grade moisturising washing liquid, like Cetophil, cheap, for hands and body from chemist warehouse etc.

    You could use leather conditioner or Dubbin or get some Mutton Fat from the butcher.

    Or to be SF iGentt approved buy a tin of Saphir Conditioner and rub it on.

    Try it on your dick too.

    I suspect he's on a promise.

    I have lots of women come up to me in the street and specify a precise collar size and shirt design before they will commit to a serious relationship. Of at least one night.
