For all the talk of bags, I feel like I should pump these guys up given that they are Aust. made, well made and well priced. I've visited their shop in Byron. We shouldn't need to look O/S for quality leather. http://www.ruggedluxury.com/shop/ Eg. http://www.ruggedluxury.com/shop/products/Traveller.html & where else could you buy something like this? http://www.ruggedluxury.com/shop/products/Kangaroo-Scrotum-Bottle-Opener.html
For the person who would looking at Double O ring belts, check out the HY sale. http://www.howardyount.com/collections/2013-clearance?page=1
I hope that, for once, they don't try and rip Australians off/unload stock that never sold elsewhere.
I highly recommend that everyone trying sitting & slouching in your shirts before deciding whether they fit. If they pucker too much vertically (a little bit is to be expected), or split horizontally at all, along the placket, then this means they are too tight. I imagine that the shirt posted earlier must have those problems. I've learnt from a great deal of trial and error that it's impossible to achieve a perfectly slim fitting Ralph Lauren model-esque look while...
I agree with HC and meant to post earlier re. that shirt picture. It's too tight around the hips & waist. EIther try darts, or do what I have been doing recently since I don't like darts which is to have a slightly smaller back waist/hip/chest measurement than front (basic principle is that you need a bit more fabric in the front than the back, while keeping the side seam centered, but only a little. For instance I think my shirts were at about 10.5" back waist, 11.25"...
In my share house we use this stuff.... One box probably lasts our entire house for 10 months or so, and it costs about $40 IIRC. Cheap as chips and lasts forever. And works pretty well, despite it's sinister name. I also use Oxyclean on shirts. Only thing that ever smells are things made out of poly, which is pretty much inevitable after a while. What are your routines for whites? I have oxyclean as stated above, and a bit of Bluo occasionally. I've heard that people...
Rather pleased that I got in to order that before it ran out... I went with a Mercer collar & pocket.
(IMO) Too much taper in a lot of those pants, even for cotton, even for #menswear store owners.They're like those horrid "carrot" shaped jeans.
A few days ago when I asked them to reserve what little they had left for my order. You might be right, though.
