In Melbourne Central, upstairs. Quite a nice fitout too, not John Pawson, but not bad...
One of the better pen companies - Dupont or Visconti maybe - did a collaboration tie with a pen pocket in it...quite how they imagined their kind of customer would be interested, I do not know...
Recently I was in Melbourne, where I found a new Calvin Klein store that looked quite upmarket compared to the old cK Jeans shop nearby. I approached with caution, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fabrics and tasteful minimalism of the styling. Somewhat reminiscent of, eg, Jil Sander or Prada, or indeed the main Calvin Klein Collection runway stuff. Pricepoints were fairly tame $800-900 for a suit, about $150-200 for a shirt, <$100 for a tie. Not...
It's from Frida Giannini's first Gucci collection, in fact it was the opening look. It's slightly less terrifying in context...
The Brisbane R&B concession is also replete with "talent", I find. I felt that the regular fit was a little big for me, not just in the body (which can easily be darted), but also the upper arms, and even the cuffs were a bit looser. The collar is glorious, and were they to introduce an MTM program, I would be very interested. The other thing that strikes me is that they really need to focus on doing broadcloth/voile, and less of the awful trendy "sateen" stripe...

I was just repeating some discussion when that ad came out, in fact. I don't know if you've seen the spot, but it was a bit OTT for the mass market, IMHO. Given that the D&G magazine ads have unequivocal gay overtones, and are intentionally aimed at that market...
I picked up the above shirt at 25% off at Myer today - so $120. I don't think that amount is too much really, maybe I *could* have gotten more for the money on, say, eBay, but the fit would almost certainly have been worse (the 37cm collar and short arms in particular work well for me!). I don't overly like the look of their ties - the salesman made a perfunctory attempt to "upsell" me on one, but I was unfussed. I also tried the jacket of one of their suits - it...

Although a "fashion" watch, I really like the styling on the Hermes Arceau: Incidentally, mad props for the Mies reference
