As my dad has gotten into the trend of dressing up as a 70s Colombian drug lord (unknowingly, it's quite funny watching him stroll out in an all white suite and fedora) I thought I'd add to his…Continue

Guayaberas in Sydney?

As my dad has gotten into the trend of dressing up as a 70s Colombian drug lord (unknowingly, it's quite funny watching him stroll out in an all white suite and fedora) I thought I'd add to his rather stylish collection by grabbing him a wonderful guayabera shirt but thought I'd make like easy if I could locate a retailer here in Sydney (truth be told I wouldn't mind getting one myself).I know this is mostly a Nth American crowd here but I'm trying my luck. Anyone? And yes I'm keeping online…See More

Biggles?

Anyone here ever read Biggles, by Cpt. WE Johns? I read the books more than any other books when I was a kid. Biggles taught me more about being a man than anyone else, real or fictional. Had about half of the 95 or so books that were written. Favorites were the WW1 ones, but they were all good.
