Do you guys know of any interesting Australian/Melbourne fashion designers worth checking out? Interested in stuff you might see at fashion week rather than tailoring.

Already familiar with all of them and sorry to say exactly what I'm not looking for, looking for more runway fashion rather than tailoring/menswear related stuff. Something you might see from recent uni graduates, brands akin to what you see at CSM Shows in London. Stuff that you'd see worn on the SWD side of the forum (though sadly no Aus thread there).

Check out - Melbourne Fashion Week.
College of Textiles & Fashion ( IIRC)
RMIT Fashion end of year runways etc.
@LonerMatt has been into that a bit I think - ask him.

mmh Looks like exfinitas is a "lifestyle" brand.
This is the lifestyle that would interest PoP, ernesto, coxxy, foxhound, etc

A good mate of mine has started up a label - Shhorn.

 

Nominated for the woolmark prize but lost to the aforementioned exinfinitas.

An interesting, although slightly odd, article from the New Yorker that combines a biography-cum-interview with David Taub of Gieves and Hawkes, with an attempt to find a good made-to-order suit in India or Vietnam.

".....the sort of people who are willing to spend eight thousand dollars on a suit tend to be “crooks, cranks, or cripples, usually all three.”

Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely keep my eyes on the shows. From a quick look I dig Shhorn's stuff over Exinfinitas, will also ask @LonerMatt.

Wet shavers of down under, do you know where I could source a Merkur classic DE razor or equivalent without breaking the bank? Second hand is fine, Sydney shops or online are my only 2 options. Even better if you know a source of Cella, ProRaso or Godrej soap/cream as well...

How on earth are they justifying the 10x premium over the perfectly acceptable Merkurs?
