thanks for clarifying, rakutens a safe beg but I'd probably only be comfortable buying bedfords and the bdu shirt jacket since I know my sizing. Thanks anyway gonna have to get over to japan sometime and cop all the stuff I like, missed out on eg x vans collab again this year frown.gif

To be fair to the Japanese, this was also once sold in that most venerable of institutions, Henry Bucks...

I had the Brooks Brothers ones but the paint started flaking off near the belt hole after a few months

 

Epaulet is my choice:

Speaking of outerwear I just posted up a really cool Paul Smith overcoat that doesn't see any wear any more I'm selling. Details in sig.

For those that jumped on the Barbour commander/beacon back in the hay day, does it still get much use or you've moved on to better options?

Personally I think it's a great jacket. But it's not an essential piece on any wardrobe. I think Barbour beaufort is the jacket to have. For shorter gents bedale. I wear suits to work and have multiple over coats and Mac to go over. The days want to look rugged I put this( my only waxed jacket) over my suit.

Same with me. I've had two now for a couple of years and they still look like new.

That looks pretty good, not sure which I prefer.  Like you said it goes over your suit, I like the sound of having that as an option.

If the weather holds I'd highly recommend for any Sydneysider a visit to Cockatoo Island during the Biennale. The art is hit and miss but there is a great pop up bar with stunning grand vistas of the harbour. Mrs GF and had a pleasant Sunday glass of Pinot Noir lounging on the lawn, good retro music as well in the background.

I'll be in Sydney at the start of June. Will definitely check it out

Mj bale is doing 25% sale prices on their website. Some decent items left. Picked up a navy blue cotton suit for $299.

Gents,

I'm off to Europe & Egypt in a week for 2 months. I'm planning on heading to George Cleverly while in London and picking up a pair of their George Loafers. The question is do I get dark brown calf or suede? I have a pair of Miserocchi driving shoes in dark brown but no loafers.

 

I'm planning on also dropping into Vass to pick up a pair of U Last 1075. I'll hit up the usual suspects whilst there but am so over budget I doubt I'll be buying much besides a few ties and nick nacks.

Yep, agree. Bought the Commander (in navy) to compliment my Bedale (in olive, no crazy windowpane), not replace it. Hopefully that will be 'it' for nicer casual outerwear for the South Australian winter.

Suede will not hold its shape as well as other leathers in my experience.

Not sure if this applies to you, but I was all over suede when I was new to this game - and have realised with the passage of time that it just doesn't make sense for most applications.

It's traditionally (in darker colours) a winter "staple", yet is the worst leather type to wear in the wet.

And for the light summer suede, grass stains and the like are an absolute b**** to clean.
