Re shorts: Ralph Lauren (on sale), especially Denim and Supply, for madras and chino shorts. I even have a pair of cargo shorts...
Whoa: I'm a 7UK in the Rain last, but in 348 I go down to 6.5UK, not up. I am puzzled...
Tried a few things in the Melbourne store, all too damn skinny! There was a nice checked coat, if I sized up, but the sleeves would have needed a lot of work. There's a bit in DJs in Brisbane, but its the cheaper Chinese made stuff, and crammed onto shelves with the classic DJs lack of care. It's a damn shame, as the first two seasons of MJB, where it was pretty much rebadged Made in Japan Herringbone, was really quite nice!
Thanks, Lennier! I feel like they're sleek enough to wear with a suit, if you wanna go crazy like that. Which I just might. Don't suppose you can comment on sizing?
Re socks (I'm late to the game): Marcoliani at DJs is more than $20 at full price, but I have pairs that are five years old and still going. In other news, can anyone recommend some dressy suede boots? I saw a great pair at Canali, dark brown with brown leather and dainite soles, but even on sale they were absurdly expensive. I went to RMW but they don't make theirs any more (and they were a bit chunky). Christian Kimber has some nice ones but the colours are a bit...

It can still be done, say former Macquarie Bank analyst Rob Blythe and London-trained tailor Patrick Johnson. Mr Blythe and Mr Johnson are turning the rarefied world of bespoke suiting on its head by cherry-picking the strategies of power brands such as Apple and Nike and introducing technology such as computer-assisted design, cloud computing and...
Dang, wish I knew! I copped some APCs a few weeks back, in search of the 'slim, not skinny' look. Oh well...
Relatively certain I had the only pocket square in Cairns today.
Short answer: yes. Don't remove the tags, and you have to fill out some sort of customs form, but otherwise it's easy. DHL dude came to my work and got it right when he said he would...
We're partial to Burleigh: decent beach with nice bars and good restaurants, plus you can get good coffee and its neither pretentious nor touristy. Might be a bit cold at present but I think we're headed down Saturday so I'll let you know.
