If Henry Bucks is being "monopolistic" they're not doing a very good job are they... A portion of higher prices in Australia is due to gouging. A much larger portion is due to higher wages, higher rents, smaller populations, higher transportation costs, a high exchange rate and a multitude of other factors.
Yes I do appreciate that and it seems crazy. But I guess the flipside is maybe they need to make that margin in order to justify stocking stuff like Carmina in the first place to compensate for low volumes. We all know how small the market for this stuff is in Australia, hard to cover the rent selling things in low volumes at the same price as overseas sellers who are making millions of dollars in revenue a month (Probably not Skoatiebolognaise but I Imagine Herring and...
 We're not talking about Apple or Google here. What's called "The Australia tax" by semi-edgy people actually refers to the fact we have high wages, a high dollar, high rents etc. Places like Henry Bucks which charge a small premium to online costs are hardly run by rent seeking fat cats. You want to try on stuff at a small retailer and buy online, fine, that's your right as a consumer, but don't make yourself feel better by concocting some illusion that sellers are raking...
They're 3 for $14
If you are a manager or above or simply insecure, maybe try TAG? I hear they make the BEST WATCHES IN THE WORLD.
There's a few other things you're going to need:   1) Pink shirt to wear on Thursdays 2) Silver cufflinks, the bigger the better. It's also desirable that these be humourous, but not overly so. Think hot/cold taps or cricket bats. 3) Nylon backpack to wear over your suit. 4) Boot cut washed jeans for fridays. 5) Two or three polyester striped ties to keep in your office drawers for when you've got a meeting with the boss, a job interview or a date. 6) Couple of...
Definitely one hot potato I would love to give a ride in my big red car.I cannot drive
Really? I have 28degrees and pretty sure limit is $3.5k or something?
Hang on, I do agree with Oli here to an extent.   Yes, occasionally you can find some great Zegna/Paul Smith/Italian suit for $500 online or at some discount retailer but this is not the same thing. Often these suits are fully canvassed, great quality, beautifully woven, intricately stitched god-ugly monstrosities.   For the price point MJ Bale is still unmatched in Australia based on the following criteria: - you can try on in store - consistent basics in stock -...
In all seriousness, as I've explained before I don't hate MJ Bale. I think they have been a complete game changer in Australia, I like a fair bit of the stuff they do, I would and have recommended them as a great place to buy a suit on a budget. I have followed MJ Bale extremely closely over a number of years and have been frustrated at their slow but persistent shift from an innovative market changer in the Australian menswear scene to yet another of the high margin, poor...
