Buffed delivers a shoe shine with heart in Brisbane City

The centuries-old trade of the shoe shiner was a role originally taken to by young boys, often as their first step into the working world. There was once a time when a shoe shiner could be found on every corner, with entire parlours also dedicated to de-scuffing. These days to see a comfortable leather chair set up on a corner with tools of the trade lining the base and a smiley chap awaiting his next nickel would seem an odd sight. more

Keep digits toasty with driving gloves from Bally

While gone are the days of gents donning a hat and slipping on gloves upon exiting a building, the need to keep digits toasty from the winter cold has not diminished.

The uniqueness of design, texture and colour that make passersby’s eyes whip around to catch another tender glimpse. And not to mention the smooth comfort that results from hours of hand stretching, tailoring, bending and assemblage – your feet will be particularly appreciative of this. more
