I would be keen for an Adelaide in oxblood/cherry, although sizing does worry me. I know that for US clients, either Vass or one of the proxies is able to send over try-on shoes. I wonder whether we could get that here: a bunch of try-ones that everyone could use to get their size right.
Onia on sale at DJs for sub-$100.I got some Calvin Kleins in what I've realized is actually Klein blue, about $100 not on sale. They fit well and I buy swimwear approximately once a decade.Same kind of non-elasticity flat front thing as OB, nice material but the lining just doesn't dry quick enough for the whole 'beach to bar' thing to really be a goer...
In a rare bout of #menswear, I am also wearing a red and blue ribbon belt...
Cup day rig. (Herringbone suit and PS, Finamore shirt, Polo RL tie)
I have been measured by Tom from PJ, but didn't end up ordering (partially because I tried on one of their La Vera jackets and realised I wouldn't be satisfied with anything less). He quickly realised at skinny trousers wouldn't suit me, and that I didn't want them. Regarding jacket detailing, I got the impression that was a little less flexible, but others may know better. I was wearing my best fitting suit jacket and basically said that but for a few tiny tweaks,I was...
I copped a Tefal iron with steam unit a while back on sale from Myer. About $200 half price, I think. DJs also had a model on special. Apparently Laurastar has pretty sketchy after sales service, especially for something so pricey. But yeah, spray with a water bottle, rest, iron: I wouldn't go steaming shirts all the time. No creases in the sleeves, for starters ...
A quick question: does anyone happen to know when Isetan's January sale is going to be? I would like to try to be in Tokyo for it. If I recall correctly, the last one started on 18 January?
Thanks for the Land's End recommendations, but I am reluctant to buy online (and were I do to so, I'd go straight to the source: Murray's Toggery Shop). I'm just not game to buy any more pants online (of any length) without trying them on first: small things make a big difference to fit. For example, the pair at Tommy Hilfiger were good in the waist, bottom of the legs, and leg length, but just a cm or two too short in the rise.
I was complimented in the street for my "swag" last night - good to see the youth appreciate linen shirts and red trousers...
Can anyone recommend a local source for some Nantucket red-esque shorts? Seems like everyone is doing a similar shade at the moment, but of the ones that I tried, they were either badly cut (Tommy Hilfiger), poorly finished (French Connection), or heinously overpriced (Ralph Lauren). I instead came home with a pair of these grey seersuckers from Country Road: http://www.countryroad.com.au/shop/man/clothing/shorts/seersucker-stripe-short-60160370 I'm not quite sure what...
