In HK (and Sydney, for that matter...) I get the sense that people are just dying for any excuse to break out winter clothing.... Less than 20? Better grab the old three piece, scarf and overcoat!
Personally I have found that oxfords don't need any lining at all for a nice roll, in the neckband or leaves. The cloth stands up just fine by itself. This is what Mercer does with theres too. In a linen or other lightweight fabrics, some lining might be good if you want the collar to stand up a bit more. I don't have lining in my linen BDs either, though.
Very interesting, Romp.

On another note, I need 1 or 2 largish horsehair polishing brushes - any ideas for Melbourne or online sources? The ones at Double Monk seemed a bit expensive. Don't need polish etc, which I do buy from DM, just the brushes alone.

That guy seems to be an actual construction worker, though.... (can't work out where he is wearing all his three piece suits to).
Perhaps rude to ask a personal acquaintance, but an anonymous person on a forum? Just saves various people having to contact the manufacturer themselves, surely. This isn't the kind of thread where people will pay someone out for what they spent on a piece of clothing...
It's up to Nakky, of course. I don't really get it though. All the same, really nice coat. *edit P Johnson, Suitshop and, until recently, Oscar Hunt all followed this strategy of secrecy as well. While of course there is some variation in pricing based on exact detailing, in reality most of their price points are fairly stable based on the cloth bracket you are in. It's almost as if they want to get people in without scaring them off with a dollar figure, then reveal the...
