I mihgt be ordering from Uniqlo China via some mail forwarding service for the navy linen jacket. Sizing is you should size up 1 from western sizing and that Asian sleeves are about 1 inch shorter. Anyone interested in risking it with me?

So 3 uniqlo jackets totalling about $200 would be:
Crappy day Gerry?
I had a good yarn to tell about Henry the Wombat I meant to yesterday.
On Sunday I went for a cast out at one of our local dams and on the way home stopped off at the river that flows out of it to go for a walk and see how it's looking. It's spawning season for trout so the rivers are out of bounds till October but anyway, as anglers do I thought I'd go for a walk, see how the river looks and prospect for a few future spots. So I'm walking along in the scrub with no one around and I hear a bunch of rustling on the other side of the river. Thinking it was another person went over to say g'day and realised that there was a big real life Henry the Wombat looking back at me! I tried to get a pic but he went back in to his hole before I could get the camera out.
So I thought it was a good omen and now I like to think the Henry lives in a little hole on the Queanbeyan River, not far downstream from Googong Dam.
And the river looked great by the way. But then again, there's always a river.....somewhere.....

Rozelle Salvos had a Zegna suit on Sat - not bad but noticeably not a current cut - $300. Little Selvaggio is doing her Duke of Ed service there - might suggest that she have a word with them abut their pricing policy. They also have a really nice ZinK & Sons bespoke grey suit. Too small for me, but someone there must know their stuff, becasue it was a similar CRAZY price.
If any Sydney-side members are interested I saw a Corneliani blazer in Gladesville Salvos wednesday last week - black, wool/cashmere blend. It was way to big for me and I'm on the big side, so I would say its a 48 or maybe even a 50.
I hadn't looked in any opshops for months but had a bit of a blast last week - found a Canali sports coat in the lightest construction I have ever seen. No lining except shoulder and sleave. No canvasing or lining in the chest at all. Beautiful tan/black small houndstooth. When I got it home I thought - nah. Just too big - and across the shoulders - so hard to adjust.
Brother-in-law is happy with it though!.
salvos are out of control with prices.
Too many young hipster managers "maximising return" with limited retail experience and a TAFE business studies subject half completed.
I've almost given up on salvos. $300 for a second hand suit is crazy in anybodies language.
They now want $20 for worn crap shirts. Bah. I can get new shirts for knocking around for less than $25 from Lands End.
Vinnies is still down around $5 -$8 for a knock around the house shirt and a bit more for a NWOT or barely worn shirt.
I have seen some nice Henry Bucks Italian made DB suits in 44 and 46 sizes for around $20 and a nice Zegna blue travel wool blazer in around 43L for $12.
