Still on the hunt for the perfect turtle neck. If anyone has a good lead let me know.
This Turtle neck fine merino sweater was sourced 5 years ago in a small boutique store in Paris, France. And as the degrees drop here in the Antipodes, 5 years on, this piece is just as relevant as it was back then.
We’re excited about these new double monks strap shoes from G&G. We first set eyes on them at our trunk show last October and we knew we had to have them for our stock.
Made on the sharp square TG73 last in Midnight calfskin these babies are for rocking out in suits or jeans.
The Grosvenor is one of the newer models designed by Tony Gaziano and it will be among others on display during our upcoming trunk show April 23rd.

As we head into winter in Melbourne, I’ve been looking to add to my winter wardrobe. One of my favourite pieces of winter wear is the scarf. They add a bit of colour in an otherwise dark and dreary environment and the feeling of a fine cashmere scarf around your neck is a winter delight along with whisky from Islay, fireplaces and taking the day off to stay in bed.

Earlier this year I paid a visit to the well known ‘The Armoury’ store in Hong Kong.
While I was there I had the opportunity to speak to Ethan and chose for myself two pairs of Carminas (a norwegian split toe and suede wholecut) that I will share photos of once I’ve worn them in a little. Ethan is very knowledgeable about the products in store (and sartorial matters in general) and his advice when choosing shoes was invaluable. Ethan, if you’re reading this, thank you again for your assistance.
While in store I was permitted to take a few photos which you can view below. The only other thing I can say is I am definitely looking forward to visiting Hong Kong again in the near future.
Saw this in the menu at the Everleigh last night and tried taking a photo but alas it was too dark, so here is the quote in good old plain text:
Bartending is an old and honorable trade. It is not a profession and I have no sympathy with those who try to make it anything but what it was. The idea of calling a bartender a professor or mixologist is nonsense.
