I dropped in to Herringbone earlier today to pick up a spare pair of trousers for one of my suits. I got a real surprise when I looked at their latest offerings. Their made in Japan suits are now a thing of the past apparently - all new suits are to be made in China according to the sales assistant. The quality looks to be falling off a cliff. Fortunately they still have some made in Japan stuff left and I got the trousers I wanted. If any Aussie members are thinking of getting one of their suits I'd advise you to hurry up before the MIJ sells out. This is a real shame. Herringbone was probably the only Australian retailer offering good quality, reasonably priced suits.
