I missed out on the C&Js as well - not a happy camper to lose on Fathers' Day mad.gif

Far Q J Crew.

This was a impulse buy. I was at yoox and found this for $97. Plus $26 shipping .

Typically a velvet jacket i find easier to wear at night when there is less light to make it so shiny smile.gif

Mate you are right about wearing with confidence. Lol. Velvet jacket reminds me of Mick Jagger !!

Thanks for the suggestions. I will leave this piece for night time events only.

I think the problem is in Australia, J Crew is licensed to another group, so they probably stuck with some legal thing so they cant undercut the group here in australia who sells at much inflated prices,

Just an assumption though

Yet another mainstream article promoting the flawed notion that super numbers in fabric relate directly to 'quality'. And giving dubious advice like starting at a minimum of 110 for a bespoke suit..

I don't think that's the case. AFAIK the only other licensed distributor of J Crew other than J Crew itself is the Net a Porter group. They are just price gouging.

Having said that, I hope the ACCC looks into those type of agreements fairly soon. I looked into buying some new snowboard boots on the weekend and ugh.... these days it seems that all the top american online stores won't ship 90% of the good brands out here directly. When I last bought boots a few years ago I had no such issues.

Don't the guys that run Incu have something to do with J.Crew? Or that may be Topshop I can't remember.

Some of it's alright but this:

 

Quote:

With a range between a low-quality 80 and a high-end 180, most designers of decent off-the-rack suits settle at about 100-110. For a bespoke number you’re going to want to start at 110 and then climb as high as your budget will allow.

lol. Actually telling people to demonstrate they have more money than sense.

They did have a Topshop pop up store above their Oxford St shop. Finished up now

Is it just me or have dub monks become a sort of an epidemic - like cockroaches. Seeing way too many of them around, usually hanging out cafes near financial organisations wearing well groomed men.

Funny, blahman, I've hardly noticed them outside of the SF catchups. I'll keep a lookout. I did see Jack London selling some and maybe a couple of the other local shops have started stocking them as well so that may explain it - they can't all be following #Menswear postings on Tumblr.

 

Cue music: I've been looking for monks in all the wrong places ...

yeah, trusnow have really dumbed it down with pretty much all their brands; better to grab some if you're ever overseas. definitely cheaper than getting them here, even if on sale.
