mm.. i thought i'd try rocking the pocket square most of this week. i'm slowly getting used to the sight of it. on another note, i am seeing quite a few more oxford captoes these days in Melbourne.

As an example, the shirt that I bought was priced at $189. I paid $103.95 for it - which is 55% of $189. Given that 100 - 55 = 45, I received a 45% discount....
it's more like 41% off.. (1 - 0.30)*(1 - 0.15) = (1 - 0.405) and yes, it was good. if you got 5 shirts that would've set you back just $85 per shirt.

both when i last checked, though i don't think they're getting any new stock in so it'll be whatever's left.

as far as i know the pouch is a trendier affair with the fairer sex. i've not had the good fortune of having dated any who sported one but will update as soon as i do.
stopped by the Herringbone at Collins St Melbourne and found out a few things: - the Melbourne outlets aren't stocking Crockett and Jones as American Tailors got in first. on the upside, AT seems to have marked theirs down (possible in anticipation of incoming Gaziano and Girling stock). - HB does have suits without the working buttonholes, but it seems the buttonhole stitching is such that moving them leaves a mark in the fabric. maybe defeating the purpose of it a...
