Australian Members - Part II - if you read the first post, you'll get what this is all about. - Page 98

post #1456 of 4151

Hi everyone,


Long time browser, first time poster.
 

Apologies for disrupting the conversational flow, but I thought i'd chime in with a quick hello. My name is Vinny, and I am based in Brisbane and I am the co-founder of a menswear blog, and a made to measure brand.

 

I am quite new to the scene, my MTM brand Cabal & Co has been operational for just over a year, and my blog, which is entitled The Sartorial Journal, has been active since January.

 

Both have been quite well received thus far, and The Sartorial Journal has in fact organically accumulated over 20,000 followers in the last 4 and a bit months which is heartening.

 

My partner and I strive to provide insightful, authentic content on our blog, and seek to fuse modern sensibility with distinctly classical undertones with our MTM brand.

 

We both are self-taught, and bear no formal fashion education. I'm looking to continue to expand my knowledge base via Style Forum, to get around the banter, and meet like minded individuals in both Brissie and throughout AUS. 
 

If any of you guys get a second, I’d love to get your two cents on my business and blog. Looking forward to getting amongst it

What are prices of Galways like at Doublemonk?  

 

Also, do they do MTO service with St Crispins including sending samples to try on lasts?

Thanks junior I'm overwhelmed by your cultural and sartorial acumen.

True, but then it's not trying to win a "most attractive jacket" award. Instead, it's aiming at a more "trad" or "ivy" aesthetic.

 

Of course, it'd probably win more fans if the outer layer was blue, green or brown/tan, instead of orange!

 

Where's it from, GF?

RL and for a weekend outdoors in a Canberra winter it's fine, water and wind resistant.

In my comprehensive 3 monthly audit (wander) of Melbourne s clothing retailers men's and women's - I've made the observation that Burnt Orange (and other less attractive variations) are this seasons new black.

Word is the big retailers are not shifting winter stock at all - especially here in Melbourne - the never ending election won't help as people slow down retail spending until election is over.

So we need either/or both an extended cold snap of at least a week to stimulate sales and the election to be over for sales of heavy coats etc to pick up.

CR Sportscraft Ternary are discounting between 25-40% on their winter stock already.

hey, i'm heading to sydney soon and have a few quick questions.

1. is there anywhere in the CBD where i can try on trickers and churchs other than double monk + henry buck? what are their selections (and pricing) usually like?
2. any CBD stores to pick up a nice tie or two? i'm not sure if kazuna, oscar hunt etc have ready-made ones to purchase? 'nice' to me for a tie is less than $120ish, so drakes etc is probably too much for my blood.
3. if anyone can suggest a decent italian restaurant in the CBD where i can make a booking for dinner it'd be appreciated. happy to pay up to $200 for 2 (neither myself or my partner drink, so wine etc isn't a consideration). nothing too stuffy because i'll probably be wearing jeans and vans or something.

thanks to everyone in advance.

I ski in a burnt orange alpine technical jacket. For some reason people assume I'm ski patrol, so I can't hang around too long in one place. It's the high-vis aspect...

Not quite CBD but a 5 minute Uber away, had a lovely dinner recently at Ombretta in Glebe. They rotate through Italian regions every week (I think) and present a fresh menu accordingly, although it will be very different from the "international Italian style". Relaxed atmosphere with great service. Should easily be within budget.

 

If you have to stick around CBD, Redoak was not too bad the one time I went but gets crowded even on weeknights. 

 

If you're willing to adventure beyond Italian (well, it's sort of Italian in spirit) and beyond CBD, the Farmhouse in Kings Cross is a destination, and still well within budget.
