Gents, I'm selling a Herringbone sports jacket (unaltered, size 42) I bought a few years back. It's a shade lighter than the navy they use in their core suiting range. It also has navy elbow patches. My body shape has changed quite a bit since then so it doesn't get a lot of wear nowadays. Admins, apologies if I should've posted this in buying/selling, however I thought it probably made more sense to let the Australian members know. PM me for photos if you're interested...
I was going through the same process last year in deciding on what Chukkas to buy. In the end, I went with the Herring Canterbury. I have found these to be awesome. Great value for money, and held up really well on a recent trip to Japan in the middle of their winter. From memory, they're slightly more chiseled than the Loake Pimlico which I prefer (all a matter of personal preference obviously), but...
There were quite a few in the navy cotton with light grey elbow patches, the navy denim style and the beige (which almost has a moleskin feel to it) which both have a lot of pick stitching. Other than that not a great deal.Can't wait to see the ties! All the best.
Agreed, however did manage to pick up a navy blue suit in the core line for 30% off which was nice.
Good to see a few people with a rural background on here.
Ah, thanks for the update!
The book has sold out I believe. I tried to buy it 5 days after it came out and there was only one Dymocks store in Sydney with a copy left. Really hoping they print a second run.

I'll put some compare pics up tonight if you like. Cheers, a couple of comparison photos would be great. I wear a UK11 so trying to aim for a bit of a sleeker look so they don't end up looking like a pair of Blundstone's.

Guys, has anyone had experience with the Loake Pimlico Chukka boots? Would love a pair of the C&J Tetbury's but having trouble justifying the extra spend on what are essentially suede boots which will no doubt cop a good beating on a night out.
