I have been neglecting this blog a little. Well, maybe not a little but a whole lot. So let me make it up to you folks who occasionally pop by to see what's new with the blog and what have I been up to aside from doing lots of automotive related things. Some of you may notice that I have been extremely active over at my motoring page - motoring-malaysia.blogspot.com. Anyway, I have made this video review, my first ever shoe review - A Comparison between a pair of Santoni and Magnanni double monk strap shoes.

First post of 2019 - My rubber sole Ferragamo died...Why I would prefer you buy Stitched together or welted Shoes

This is my first post of 2019 here and let's start on something with something that this blog is well known for...Shoes. This time, let me remind you why glued shoes or stuck on construction shoes aren't really worth your time and / or money.... especially if you don't have much of either.

What is the Best Warm Weather Fabric for a Jacket - It could be Hopsack in a Linen-Cotton Blend


After years of trying out different types of jackets in different types of fabric I am of the opinion that if you want to wear a sports jacket or a suit here in humid, warm, hot, you name it, everything uncomfortable in a jacket situation Malaysia it has to be unlined. Even the sleeves if possible or a very, very thin piece of lining - thinner than the usual Bemberg lining offerings.

Faux Tweed Jacket - For that Quintessential English look When Up in the Highlands While on a Drive in Some Newly Facelifted Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedans



Yes. No postings for a while. But I have been busy you see. Here you see yours truly in the company of some distinguished gentlemen in many ways, not including of how they are attired. We were in the Cameron Highlands Resort the night after the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Rally held for the members of the automotive media in conjunction with the Malaysian launch of the newly facelifted W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class here.

Ready to Wear - Because MTM & Bespoke Are Usually Not Necessary


This is a photograph of Yours Truly taken months ago. Basically nothing from here is Made to Measure (MTM) or Bespoke. The button down cotton shirt is by Brooks Brothers (non-iron, made in Malaysia stuff - I wear it because it helps the local factories, because I don't have any problems wearing non-iron and it does make my life easier), the flax-linen sports jacket by Massimo Dutti and the trousers, by Marks & Spencer (Collezione line with some Italian cotton fabric and surprisingly high waisted by today's standards). Oh, the pocket square is some Italian branded cotton one which I forgot the make.

The Parker Jotter

Yes. It's been a while since I last posted anything in here.

So here is something about my favourite ballpoint pen - the Parker Jotter


"The Jotter ballpoint is Parker’s longest running pen in production since its introduction in 1954. The company conducted nine years of research and development before launching it, and decided not to endorse it with an arrow clip until it had been proven successful. Nearly 65 years later, total production is approaching the 1 billion mark."

I will try to post on a regular basis here. But it usually is a problem when you are extremely busy doing a whole lot of things all of the time.
