Have you ever met a real freegan? Yes, they are worse.

Honestly don't see why a hankie should cost more than $20 (that's being generous) unless it is something special like they are created Hermes scarf way.

Otherwise a piece of woven fabric with four edges rolled and sewn in shouldn't cost more than a few bobs + a couple more for skilled labour and stocking them. You can get a whole jacket for $59.

I have been on their mailing list for a while, but never could be bothered getting out to Murrumbeena - didn't know they were online now.

Probably suit you blah - lots of bored post teenage girls hanging around looking down their nose at you. Nothing is cheap at all but some of it is ok - some of it even good - like Pal Zileri.

Just over the parking lot is Louisa's "factory/clearance outlet" - if you can call $1,000+ handbags and crappy womens shoes clearance. They do have a few mens shoes from time to time - but more in the area of $500 high top sneakers.

Not really worth a special trip - but if you are driving past ..

see the posts yesterday about Luisa's in the city.

Wearing my Canali boots that I bought there today, they still need to break in a little bit, but they are VERY comfortable.

Their city store has a lot of nice shoes for men. The outlet doesn't even have a representative sample of what the city store has.

Aparently the take a long time to roll properly Hober was saying it takes 2 hrs a square or something insane. Also the silk should be ~ 10-20$ a square on top of this... Noticeably more if you have a large pattern to match.

Not intending making a habit out of it, but here is today's casual Friday fit:

198

I think that the weather is fine enough in Melbourne to still rock the cotton suit.
Click for details (Click to show)
Suit: Herringbone (special nod to Christian)
Jumper: Gant
Polo: UNIQLO
Hard to see pochette: Random Venetian store (was on a bridge from memory if that helps!)
Boots: Grenson 'Sharp'

2 hours per square sounds like a lot, I know what my tie maker in Italy charges for hand rolled squares and it definitely doesn't reflect that amount of labour that's for sure.

I think for squares (and ties) it should be a happy medium. I agree that I personally could never be bothered expending the energy to get squares in op shops for nothing, because I just don't have the time. But I think $75 is a bit rich, especially as I know how much they cost wholesale. In saying that, if Patrick can charge $75 and people pay it, more power to him.

I need some input from the collective wisdom here. Did a search but my inept boolean skills failed. What I would like is a recommended place to get some good quality (possibly handstiched) working button holes done for a recently arrived Sports Jacket. I am just north of the bridge in McMahons Point, Sydney. So anywhere in the city would be ideal. Thanks.

On another note I just received my first order from Epaulet. A test run to gauge their sizing. Really pleased with the Rivet Chinos.
