I have two pairs (of Church's) in calf which I am very happy with...this deal makes me think it might be worth getting a pair of black shoes with brogueing and get the double monks in brown or suede (that would please PoP and fxh.....wait did someone say people are over analysising their purchases).
As far ordering from Herring goes I have found them extremely helpful, very fast at answering questions and the delivery time is only a couple of days. Recommended (also if you do a search or ask nicely here I think there is a shoe tree offer too).

Did you try buying a pair? I cant find where to put the discount code

we must be looking at different models or sizes as there seems to be quite a few left when I looked a minute ago. If you are interested it is worth looking at different models and colours.

Think I might drop Adrian at Herring email and get some sizing info (my other Church's are G width and fit well)

PS Was looking at F widths too in terms of availability.

I just bought a pair of the Brisbanes in black calf. Whacked in the code at checkout. With VAT removed and code applied it came to $279 Aud including delivery.

It's $350, unless you don't have a job then why are you so worried? You can't have everything dude, just make a choice.

You can't take it with you...

the last pages have also reiterated that nobody can make claim that "low balling" is unfair. everything has been about saving money; whether on shoes, trying on suits in a store and buying online or whether $350 is expensive for a jacket... seriously, having just spent 3 and half months travelling the world, we do pay more as Australian's in general, but we also get paid a lot more.

I went to the TODs party in Florence for 'fashion night out' and the staff there were getting $7 an hour. Considering our average wage is 3x that, paying 25% more is not too bad.

You could enjoy the jacket while you're alive... not so sure about the money (unless you roll around in it as I often do, but $350 it would need to be coins and that could hurt).

FYI the Church's 73 last can be a hard one to fit (probably why it's being discontinued). It runs both narrow and shallow, but at the same time manages to look wide (sort of like a reverse TARDIS/Ford Landau effect - low internal volume high external displacement).

So, generally, I would suggest you go for a G fit if your foot is on the wide side; stay with an F if your foot is narrower (i.e. you fit the C&J 358 well) Also, with something like the Loake Capital you might consider going up half a size (or staying the same size if the Loakes are big on you), but you should probably all ask Herrings for an individual recommendation as they are pretty knowledgeable about the different makers' common last styles.

You put it in after you click "checkout" the second time. There is a box top LH side of the screen, enter code and click "apply code".

Good luck.

You understand the concept of "cost of living" right?

Re: Should I buy a $350 jacket or not...

In fairness to Michael Sy, I think that his issue is not so much whether he should spend $350 on a jacket, but whether he's getting value for money for said jacket. It's my impression that he's happy to pay $350 - or more - for a jacket but that he doesn't want to throw away his money on a piece of rubbish and as he doesn't yet know a great deal about clothing, he's concerned that he might buy "the wrong thing".

I think that the only way to deal with such an issue is for Michael to do exactly what he intends to do - get out and about and try on as many suits and jackets as he can. Trying things on, seeing what fits, seeing what feels good and getting an idea as to what constitutes a "good" jacket or suit can take time and effort but is well worth it if a person wants to build up a good wardrobe.

^^Yeah, the guy clearly doesn't have as much cash as a lot of the posters on here.

I mean come on, even the most well-heeled among us regularly inquire as to where we can save $15 shipping on saphir.

Why not save money and learn a few things at the same time. If the posts are too petty for you, just skip over them!

sure do. as i'm also aware first hand that cost of living is higher in many places in switzerland or UK, and the salaries are by and large the same or less; at least for my demographic of 20 - 30 in law, banking and consultancy.
