Cheers, yes it always gets a lot of compliments.
Thanks also, it's nice isn't it. Just wait till you see the purple grenadine sample coming next week with the members ties. 7 fold, un-tipped, hand rolled edges.... Going to be special.
And you cant miss them blahman...the way they hover and linger around you the whole time your there is so off putting. Maybe its just me, perhaps I look like a hobo!!! Hahaha. However, Harrolds will never be as bad as Xile in Brisbane. They are excruciatingly poor at service and hovering over you.
I think the guys in Richards and Richards do it well. They seem genuinely interested and authentic in their approach. Would also add American Tailors to this category too. Knowledgeable and authentic, something others would be good to learn. I asked a fellow in Mitchell Ogilvies the other day if they had any Grenadine ties, was told what they had out was what they had and for me to have a look through. I asked him did he know what a grenadine tie was....do I need to tell you what the response was??? Didnt think so. Looks like an order with Henry C is well overdue. Am waiting for Burgundy to arrive and will snaffle a navy too.
Personally I like the David Jones approach....not a SA in sight. Suits me I know what I want and am well aware of my size.
I have a black tie event coming up in 2 months time, I'm unsure of how im going to dress good enough with out having to purchase a dinner suit (i dont have 1200+ dollars ). What would be close to acceptable to wear?
I own a business suit, a casual suit and a blazer and dont mind buying something else within my budget.
