Despite our image as laid back and slovenly, Australians are a well dressed bunch. The crowd I know is, at least. We blend the colours of Jermyn Street with the bare ankle panache of Lago di Como, wear welted shoes and I even see the odd gent in a hat and bow tie. Some might say it's affectation, whereas others might say it's just a bit of fun.

Something that does irk me though, is a disregard for the care of shoes. I think for some it's a lack of care, while for others it's a lack of knowledge.

I think an evening of bubbles, conversation and shoe care is on the cards in the near future... Who's interested?
