Gents not sure if any of you are on the bigger side but I'm helping out at a vinnies today and we got a donation of 5 zegna suits in a 46 (eu 56). All are recent models and 4 are two button and 1 three button. I think they're worth more as a set, so told the vinnies ladies I'd have a look to see if anyone would snap em up online. Looking for about $70 a suit. Honestly, these suits are bloody great and if they were in my size this would be the motherload. Pm me if you're...
1) Two unexpected significantly subdued years of sales will kill about half of the smaller private businesses around the country, particularly if there is debt involved. 2) Where is your proof that this borrowing was "irresponsible"? As JM said, Herringbone expanded significantly in a short time space. They needed to finance these expansions, particularly store fitouts and stock. Getting private equity in this country is impossible for most small businesses, and even if...
Well that's certainly not my understanding. Based on the administrator's statements, the business specifically suffered due to economic conditions, which flowed through to lower consumer discretionary spending. There was also the matter that the company was quite highly leveraged and therefore ill-equipped to weather such an abrupt slowdown in sales. But my point was less about the one-off administration and more about the ongoing success of Herringbone. I would guess with...
I would not be surprised if this was a deliberate product strategy by Matt Jensen/others based on his experience at Herringbone.Given that business went into administration and struggled at other times, he may have come to the conclusion that there just wasn't money to be made in standard, classical menswear in Australia like was successful overseas. Rather, to actually make money, MJ Bale needed to have enough stupid flashy fashiony shit that it would appeal to the self...
JH, david jones Elizabeth st has a few barbour jackets you can try on the top menswear floor. Largely just the quilted ones but might be good for idea of size. Personally, I'm a large in one and a medium in an another, but it really depends on whether you wear anything underneath.
rekt  But in all seriousness I like the tie, but it would look better with a plain blue or white shirt. Conversely, the shirt would look better with a plainer tie. It just gets tricky when combining multiple "look at me" elements, turns the "well dressed guy" into "that fashiony guy" very quickly.
I can just imagine all the women commenting "nice tie".
Foxy, good review but I'd really like to see some closer up pictures of the suit and I'm sure some others would too. I'd be interested in a close up of the lapels and the shoulders in particular if you get around to taking more pics.
Interesting to see how both MJ Bale and Herringbone have started offering side tabs on the trousers for quite a few of their suits.
