THE SELFISH GIANT
THE SELFISH GIANT

I loved this movie, it was gritty in that way that only British drama seems to be able to be. 

Inspired by the Oscar Wilde story of the same name and set in in an impoverished area of Bradford, northern England.

Swifty is the friend that we all had as kids growing up and Arbor is the boy we all hope we don’t have; hyperactive, street wise and delinquent.

This is a story of struggle, friendship, anger and love.

On now at Rialto Newmarket and the Paramount in Wellington.


DIGITAL EVOLUTION
DIGITAL EVOLUTION

Many of you will remember getting hand written dockets from us ( in black pen of course) when making a purchase in store. 

We still write all of our quotes by hand and also our Made to Measure orders.

Moving to a digital platform was a big decision but the results have been great in terms of greater accuracy and efficiency.

This week the Business Herald featured an article that had run as part of the Innovation Partnership we were involved with earlier in the year.

It highlighted our digital evolution from faxes to UFB and Cloud based technology.


SIR OWEN WOODHOUSE
SIR OWEN WOODHOUSE

I was sorry to see the passing of Sir Owen Woodhouse.

A man who we all owe a great debt to as New Zealanders. 

Officer, Hero, Judge, Knight Commander and Architect of the ACC scheme.

A man like him and his many achievements make the current Parliamentary process seem a farce.

Marcoliani has been manufacturing luxury socks since the 1950s. The latest collection features a number of new designs as well as some good staples including silk.

The production is totally Made in Italy and is a blend between  the uniqueness of handmade products and high tech innovation.

As part of our own on going commitment to quality none of the products we sell are Chinese made.  

They are made in either the UK, France, Japan, New Zealand or in this case Italy.

Wherever possible we know the people personally …
