post #18391 of 57113
Gentlemen,

I bought a new watch strap, but prefer my old one more. Anyone interested in buying the following:



The strap is a Hirsch lizard strap in a rich burgundy colour. The lug width on the strap is 20mm, narrowing to 18mm at the buckle (the buckle is silver, not gold-plated as pictured). Other than, it's the same. I've removed the tags, installed it to my watch and decided I don't like it as much as the old one. I wore it for precisely 18 minutes on the train ride home from work, during which I likely looked like the guy obsessed with his watch (to other commuters). By the end of my journey, my mind was made up, I'm switching back.

PM me if you're interested. Oh, $50 by the way, posted anywhere in Australia. Retail including shipping is about $70.

Nice tie. I see Ascot ties quite frequently when op shopping, and Bucks had them for $39 at their sale.

FURNITURE and white goods giant Harvey Norman has scored the poorest customer service rating of Australia's major retailers in a survey by consumer advocate Choice.
While Harvey Norman received the worst feedback, Choice said most stores surveyed provided a ''frustrating'' shopping experience, with staff frequently ignoring customers and showing a lack of product knowledge

Choice spokeswoman Ingrid Just said: retailers that could previously ''get away with poor service'' now had to rethink because of online competition.
Our old mate Gerry responds: (Click to show)
Harvey Norman chairman Gerry Harvey said the Choice results contradicted the feedback he received from customers. ''The level of feedback we're getting shows that our level of service is fantastic,'' he said.

I'm sick of paying high prices for cheap Made in Asia shirts and after seeing what Herringbone had to offer was the last straw.

 

Doing a bit online reaseach lead me to the following three options for Made in Australia shirts:

Edward Stripe "4 Australia"

Ganton "Special Collection"

Jensen by Ganton.

 

Has anyone had experience with any of these manufactureres?

Specifically their Made in Australia shirts?

 

I'd be happy to pay $195 for the Edward Stripe considering a Thomas Pink Made in Vietnam isn't far off that price.

Have you taken a look at our shirts? Alot less than the shirts you mentioned and Made in the USA

 

The same 200 year old workshop also makes all the shirts for Sid Mashburn and J.Press so the quality is right up there.

I'm struggling to get behind the idea of spending $75 on a shirt made in India.

Meh, if the quality is there (and in the case of Luxire, plenty of people say it is, including Oz forum members -- though I am yet to try them myself), who cares where they are made? Isn't that kind of RACIST?? biggrin.gif

I like the look of the Red Chambray, but I can't try the shirt on.

I didn't say that I don't like the shirts becasue they are made by "Indians", I said I don't like the idea of buy the shirts becasue they are made in "India"

id almost agree...  machine made shirts as long as the machines are top notch will be decent 

 

Fabric is quite important.

 

The key difference is attention to detail
