Is it me, or is Drake's killing it right now?

Not just you. Their last two look books have been amazing.

Nobody can afford them.

Look beyond that and learn from the images how the colours and textures are combined to form coherent, interesting outfits. That's where the value is and everyone can afford that.

The other interesting thing is that the models are adults and not stick monsters. Also some very interesting combinations of colour and fabrics happening.

I'll be contrarian and say that to me the look books are decidedly "hipster" as opposed to something a bit more classic (say, Cesare Attolini's). Particularly not a fan of rolled up jeans. #normcore

I'm going to agree with both of you here. The Drakes look book has been fantastic for the last few years, very easy to draw inspiration off. On the other hand Oli makes a good point. Who's buying it at full price? Plenty of people on sale sure, but not many people that I know are putting their hands up to to buy the ties at 125 quid or whatever they are now, let alone some of the other eye watering prices. They are definitely looking at the luxury end of the market price wise, but I see their target demo (the people actually buying it) as mid to high market, not at the top end competing with the likes of Attolini, Brioni and the like. My 2 cents.

It's Tax return time and I really appreciate if someone can answer this. I tried to find info online but not sure if I got the right answer.

 

If I were to purchase a hand carry luggage cost $1000 on the 1st of July. 90% of its use is for business.

 

Therefore $900 for business use.

 

As a depreciation asset if we do it in 4 years.

 

How much I can claim back. Real money back in my pocket. What is the formula.

 

I tried to look it up online and but there are too much information. Not sure I got the right information.

 

Thank you so much.

Anyone have this shoe tree and can share their experience in terms of their quality, sizing, etc? I am about to order some.

I bought some shoe tree from Amazon USA. I think they are Woodlord. not sure why lots of people praise it. I found it pretty average.

 

This one from Herrings looks much better. It looks very similar to the C&J shoe tree.

Herring shoe trees good, tax advice on internet forumz maybe not so much.

I agree, Jas. Oli does make a good point but that's neither here nor there with regard to how good the look book is. It's a different conversation. To be fair, the same can be said about the Cucinelli or Ring jacket look books as well. Drake's is pricey, no doubt, but it is what it is. We can't change that. The styling is awesome, though :)

 

I want to get away from price discussion and talk about what people can take away from the look book now.without spending megabucks. 

 

For example, for this look:

 

You need a light blue jacket, some well fitting denim (your choice), a dark green knit tie (e.g. http://www.henrycarter.com.au/product/henry-carter-x-sozzi-forest-zig-zag-knit-tie/), a white OCBD (say, Kamakura), an orange cardigan (http://www.uniqlo.com/au/store/0-1491130017.html#colorSelect) and a dark blue silk square.

 

You can create this look for a lot less and that's where I'm coming from.

 

What I wore yesterday:

 

was inspired by this:

 

Nothing I'm wearing is actually from Drake's, btw..

Still striving for this piece of inspiration?
