No no

This is the place to ask questions - just make it clear what you are asking. Part of this thread is to be geographically and culturally relevant, and helpful rather than competitive.

Being helpful in a way that assists new comers to find out information and even to find out clothes. Thats why some people post pics here, others don't, some post suits others street wear - it doesn't matter. Ask any silly question.

Theres also enough knowledge around, much of it lurking in the back channels, that can weigh in with advice on advanced matters if theres a serious questions and if people will work for knowledge - I , and others can summons some of the deep experts up, with voodoo and human sacrifice, if needed.

Working for knowledge means reading some of the basic books on menswear that are around, getting out and about and touching, feeling and looking at materials.

Azzarro - alway has a sale. Its a distributor for many Italian brands. The have one off samples - new year overruns, last year clearances - and simply stuff that didn't sell out in retail land - its a mixed bag - They run a kind of warehouse/ wholesale shop where they also sell some retail to public. You can walk in - sometimes you need to ring to see if they are open. They are friendly and helpful. You look around, try stuff on, have a chat gently ask prices and sometimes you'll come away with a swag of good cheap stuff. Other days - nothings fits and its all too expensive for what it is anyway. Its a Melbourne thing. Luckily they are only about 5 blocks way on the same street as Beggar Man Thief the best place in OZ to try on, and buy, a range of UK shoes - Loakes etc.

Please edit if you are sick of newbies like me asking questions again and again.

 

I think MJ Bale is broken down into two levels: the standard level which is made in China; the 'Classic' suits, and the higher end $1,000+ suits made in Japan; the 'Collection' suits (can't view online).

 

They have had 'Classic' suits going for $500 for about a month now and will continue to do so for about another month. I guess you could almost tag their classic suits at $500 each. 'Normally' they are priced at $800-$1,000 (jacket and pants).

 

Charlie's Wardrobe is a wearer of the 'Classic' MJ Bale suit - of which he supports.

 

I bought one today. When the suit first came out it was priced between $800-$900, I got it for $550. I love it.

 

Heringbone also has a heap of suits on special (30% off) and they are going for $800-$1000 online, not $600.

Azzarro is an importer for Canali, Cantarelli, Borrelli, Antichi Telai and Versace, along with a few other brands. You can always find new season stock there at wholesale prices. When they have their end of season sales, the prices are outstanding.

Thanks, fxh and California Dreamer. It sounds like a worthwhile trip (I'm only in Sydney.) And I'll have to check out Beggar Man Thief, too!

Thanks Gerry for the answer to my stupid questions; I promise to not post for at least 48 hours :)

Thanks

Bunny, if we keep asking you questions will you not answer for another 47.5 hours or will you cave in and post?

Is there any tie makers in australia who can take on drakes?

post #19874 of 51760
Not sure what you mean by 'take on', i.e. whether in a business sense or just as a regular tie buyer, but assuming the latter, Henry Carter's ties are very good.
