I think Yul looks fantastic there. Ofc, sporting a glabrous scalp helps;)
Australia the world's wealthiest country? Hardly. Our currency is in freefall, economy bordering on recession. Wages are high but so is the cost of living. Try buying a house in Melbourne or Sydney these days - prices are beyond ridiculous.
I'm doing ok but at some point I have to draw a line in the sand. I also have no space left in my wardrobe, and a B&Tailor commission on the way. So no Sartoria Formosa for me this time.
However - I've just wish-listed a lovely pair of Vass shoes from NMWA. They are discounted, I've always wanted some Vass, and pending Greg's PM reply to confirm that they can be delivered in time, this will be a nice consolation purchase in lieu of an SF suit.

Without wanting to sound like a dick, why not slightly reduce your quantity in the name of quality? From what I'm seeing, J.

Dugdale is a rather well regarded, with fabrics offered at roughly $50 more, give or take a few bucks. I can't imagine Dugdale being significantly inferior to J. Crew fabric, and of course you get the added bonus of customizing what you desire from Luxire.
