I want to wear shorts to the office. Some of the guys do. We've a Dutch fellow who wears shorts the moment the weather exceeds 15 degrees..

All depends on your office of course, but only do it if you have the pins to pull it off.

I'd like to get a coat similar to what the person on the right is wearing:

 

I'm not sure what to use as a search term though. What am I even searching for here?

 

"navy mackintosh" and "navy raincoat" don't seem to bring up anything similar.

So who else wears shorts to the office here?
PS Oli - moleskins are a tad warm for an Aussie summer I reckon. Gerry's suggestion of chinos is a good one for the warmer months. But do let us know what type of casual you had in mind.

 

Good point. I'm still at uni so you can skip the office, just anywhere you can make appearances where a suit is too formal and a t shirt too slobbish - pubs, bars, dates, lunches, wine touring etc

 

Oh, and an agrarian theme :p

 

Chinos are a bit scary given my thunder thighs but i'll give them a go!

Just want to add my voice to the chorus of support for Henry Carter.

 

Ordered a pocket square last Wednesday night around 11pm, it arrived Friday.  An excellent piece, top quality, and very nicely packaged. Can't wait to wear it.

 

Thanks Jason.

You want to dress like Harvey Specter? That's easy, just have collar gap biggrin.gif

I'm pretty sure you'll have more luck searching for raincoat. Apparently The Armory used to sell these (made by Grenfell?):

The button thing on the sleeve is quite similar!

It might even be a car coat like this: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Cotton-Car-Coat/ML00033,default,pd.html?dwvar_ML00033_Color=NAVY&dwvar_ML00033_Size=SML&contentpos=3

 

TBM, seriously? I mustn't have been watching properly because I don't recall ever seeing a collar gap on Specter's suits. Have you got any images handy?

Yeah big props to Henry Carter myself I ordered a tie today and although it won't be shipping until tomorrow the e-mail responses in regards to my request were fantastic and appreciated highly! I will post about the tie when it arrives (hopefully Tuesday)

Mikhail Zenon in Sydney has a few http://mikhailzenon.com/blog/?page_id=266

 

Up There Store in Melbourne just got in a few chainstitch machines but they're not Singer http://www.uptherestore.com/blog/jason/2012/09/items-interest-sewing-machines

Had to go with the glencheck :) I wanted to stand out a little and you guys seemed to love the Silver/Navy

Seersucker is my new favourite material for summer. So light and breathable it feels like you're wearing a cloud (is that a thing? I'm going to say it's a thing) but also has a great texture to mix things up. If you're feeling adventurous, go a seersucker blazer..
