I think its a bigger range in store

The three classic Sperry Topsiders, light, medium and dark brown can be had for around $80-100 here at an outlet store in city west (Perth).

Another community service announcement...

The David Jones Wharehouse at Birkenhead Point has ten or so differnt varieties of Pantherella socks for $12-15 pair - some a bit casual, but some perfectly okay for business wear. A couple are sea-island cotton (with a hologram for authenticity - who knew?).

I have no solid sense of whether this represents good value or not, but I thought I mention it for Sydney folk whom may be interested.

I've not been much of a posh sock wearer, but I bought a few pairs and they are actually very nice.

(Top Tip: use www.ebay.com NOT www.ebay.com.au; you will get more results and more often than not, even if the seller says US shipping only, they'll ship to Australia if you ask nicely) What's your budget if you don't mind my asking?

I've never used them for alterations, I used to have all my clothes made for me when I could travel to SG and HK more often, but now I pretty much fit RTW again and buy over the phone from stores in the UK, and online. For alterations I used my SG tailor when I needed it; but recently I bought a Tom Ford suit, and used a place in Plaza Arcade (opposite Easyway Bubble Tea) called 7 Star Clothing Alterations; the work was very good, and it was ready in 30 minutes, all I needed was the jacket taken in slightly and the rippling at the neck sorted out.

Budget for tux ~400 with $200 alterations. Heading to KL next year to hopefully get a nice pair of C&J wedding shoes.

Hi, Any idea where you will buy C&J in KL? I'm there after Xmas and looking for tips on where to shop for some decent shoes. Also off to Singapore so guys feel free to chip in with some tips. I'm after a pair of work shoes either brogue or semi and budget $500. Saw a pair of Paul Smith Mainline for 335 quid is that good value for Paul Smith? Thanks in advance.

P.Lal seems to be the place to get good shoes in KL:

There are also some reasonable deals on shoes to be found in dept stores in central KL.

Here are two threads created by an Australian SF member who visited KL a couple of years back - he visited P.Lal and also had a look around other places:

So I walked into general pants today to get a pair of jeans and I saw these being sold for $229.95. What. kind. of. fuckery. is this???

post #2107 of 55253
P.Lal for C&J is a great idea. You might find it useful to try a local tailor (ask around on the forums for recommendations, I know one in SG but not in KL) for your dinner suit. You're considerably better off spending the $600 on an MTM program, even something like SuitSupply. $400 for a suit probably won't get you very far unless you're lucky enough to grab something on B&S or eBay (the latter being more likely). If you're spending $200 on alterations for any suit; you bought the wrong size, or the cut just doesn't work for you.

I once strolled in during lunch. I strolled back out within 10 seconds.

That being said I would buy those shoes if they're $10. They look comfortable.

Chronicles of Never by Gareth Moody, one of the original Tsubi/Ksubi guys Not a bad pair of light shoes for the hipsters, but for 220 is a joke

a friend of mine has gone through hell and back to get the right size with Aldens and he has gotten them off Amazon.

They are actually black noise white rain, mainstream spin off of CON. You won't find CON in general. The quality of those shoes is terrible if they get wet they are a goner. Does anyone know of any bris sales coming up?

I think that Herringbone has 20% off on certain stock at present, but I could be mistaken. Richards & Richards was having 30% off and that could still be the case.

Just wait until after Boxing Day or the new year - I'm sure that plenty of places will be having sales then.
