Rest in peace Johnny.

You will always be my favourite. 


IPHONE 6
IPHONE 6

The iPhone 6 was announced this morning.

Payment function is the part that interests me and in true American style you can now upsize and get the fries in the form of a watch. 

I am old enough to remember when digital watches came out (with a calculator) so I am not easily excited.

I won’t wear it but I can see that millions will.

Samsung had that idea a little while ago. 

 


NEW SEASON CHEANEY
NEW SEASON CHEANEY

We have new shoes in store. 

Just released for European Winter 2015 is the Bexhill, a nice pebble grained leather brogue in a heavier style. Looks great with a suit or jeans.

The Buckingham is a beautiful classic oxford, available in Black and Espresso a colour we had custom made for us by Cheaney.

They are the perfect dress shoe for a Navy suit heading into Spring.

The Kelly is a full patent shoe. For that formal look the high shine is just the thing with a Tuxedo. 


MARCOLIANI SOCKS
MARCOLIANI SOCKS

The Fed Ex truck has been a regular visitor at Crane HQ this week and the latest delivery is Marcoliani.

These Italian made socks are a sartorial delight and this season we see a departure frrom stripes and spots with some more intricate designs.

Pima Cotton is perfect as the weather begins to heat up. 


BLUE SEPTEMBER
BLUE SEPTEMBER

Every year more than 600 New Zealand men die from prostate cancer and one in ten New Zealand men will develop the disease in their lifetime.

Like many diseases many of these deaths could be prevented by early detection.

This month is Blue September and the message is all about getting checked so you can rest assured that you aren’t in danger.

It is a couple of minutes discomfort but that’s a small price to pay.

If you want to find out more you can visit the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
