Yep been that way for a while. Either need to find a proxy for purchasing from OS or hand over more money than you should buying locally.

I'm sure I saw a shop in Queen St - somewhere near Flinders Lane maybe - which was selling Loake 1888s.

 

There are a few outlets in Sydney too, including one just near where I live - Enrico Santi on Pitt Street. I've bought two pair from there, both at sale price - worked out to less than $300.

 

Or you could wait for an American Tailors sale and pick up some C&J, which is a step up from Loake. I have been freakishly lucky there - all in all, three pair of C&J, handgrade, for less than $300 each. Unbelievable. I'm still pinching myself.

Here's one of my Loake 1888s from Enrico Santi:

 

 

C&J Lonsdale (handgrades) from American Tailors:

 

 

C&J Belgrave polo suede (handgrades):

 

 

Two pics of my C&J Courtenay austerity adelaides (handgrade), taken when brand new:

 

 

 

Bonus pic of those Belgraves:

 

 

I think the above photos demonstrate the quantum leap in quality of C&J handgrade vs. Loake 1888.

 

OK, that's enough shoo porn.

Not trying to be a dick but how do posed pics of brand new shoes vs worn shoes barely posed, demonstrate a quantum leap in quality?

That would be McCloud's. They do stock Loake, also Barker, Church and Cheaney, amongst others.

@Gerry Nelson grabbed an olive cotton bedford and a pair of wool fatigues, was after the homespun bedord but the grey was a bit too light in colour for me. Both from the upthere sale, forgot they had the bargain basement though might've waited but definitely happy with the purchases.
Edit: Also checked out DotComme finally, amazing stock and very fairly priced in my opinion there's two double riders for 400-500ish which sadly didn't fit but are gorgeously detailed.

^^TBH I prefer the Loakes (minus the baby poo brown)

Hope everyone is well.

Before I put my watch on eBay etc l thought I'd give Aussie members a shout first

I'm selling my Omega Speedmaster Auto Date watch with original band - PM me for details

We are also selling a stunning Tanzanite ring, perfect engagement ring

In a nutshell we've moved back to Brisbane and then a builder ripped me off a lotta dough

In further shocking news my wife bought me a shiny Geoffrey Beene tie, made me wear it too.

I though they were outlawed for men over a certain age?

Sorry to hear about your misfortune with the white shoe brigade.

Nice. Could have driven it to the game on the weekend. Bring back some knock off gear for me.

Did you go to the game? I heard it was dead. I expected Juve to draw a huge crowd. I still felt they brought a decent squad with them even with all the omissions. Would have liked to have seen Dybala play.
