If anyone really like Rhodes and Beckett

http://www.rhodesbeckett.com.au/privateclients/email_20121119.php

Same price as their normal price isn't such a bad deal, except that their normal price isn't ridiculous.

Shows how big their margins must be at full retail.

FML the Barbour had some 'paypal' problems as the seller wrote his paypal email wrong so it was never received by him (I then cancelled it) but got a new invoice through email 'instead of ebay' so it could be paied to him this time....It sounds highly suspicious so I'm not too sure what to do :P

"all at normal our retail price" - I do hope the order of their words is no indication of their ability to make shirts.

I think Rhodes & Beckett stuff is mainly cactus. It's all so stiff and lifeless.

Happened to me once. Somehow, my old email address was used during the checkout. If you can work with the seller to change Paypal address to the correct one and then get him to send you another invoice through eBay, you should be fine. Unless you already sort-of trust the invoice he's sent to you.

funny you mention them.

 

i was wearing my white and green striped R&B shirt today. their fabric isn't as nice as one of my other Farage shirts. i only wear R&B because their sizing is perfect for my long arms and thick neck.

Hahaha! I like that stiff cotton! I have been trying to find a similar feeling cotton! I think Rhodes uses a poplin weave?

 

But as Sliq said above, they are for people with long arms, I have short arms :(.

LOL was fortunate enough to ride in the same carriage as thebrownman this afternoon on the way home; saw a familiar pair of NB kicks and it immediately triggered something! That mo looks even more deadly in real life!

Because I have never earned over $6,000 in a taxable year, I put my donation in my mother's name.

 

Grow that beast!

Yeah think I'll take my chances and do an invoice through email; least it's paypal...paypal will reimburse if it fuck up right? right?.....

The silhouette of the suit isn't derived just from point measurements. For instance, how the fabric contours between the chest and waist and waist and hip measurements is going to have a very big effect on how well the suit looks.

 

It isn't as easy as just pointing the finger at the consumer and saying "it is all your fault, you didn't use your measuring tape correctly".

Nicely said!

So much sweat, blood and tears have gone into this Barbour. Hats off for putting so much effort into it. I think those clothes that have consumed so much time and thought are the ones we end up loving and cherishing the most.

Thank you, sir!

I purchased some "Colonel Ichabod Conk's moustache wax" and have been using it the past two days. Unfortunately, mine's not long enough to curl, yet, but it does do a decent job of softening the bristles and imparting a very slight sheen smile.gif

Oh man, should've come and said hello smile.gif

I derp out on the train, sitting there with poor posture usually reading the mX and wonder if the submissions in the paper are by real people or just made up by newspaper staffers..

The thing I hate about facial hair, is that once it gets to a certain length, I can't stop stroking it. Surely you get that with your mo?
