like a Bauce
id be down to get stuff proxyd
I recently picked up some Howard Yount grey flannel and Epaulet navy donegal tweed trousers as well as an Epaulet button down oxford. I couldn't decide between the HY's and EP's so decided to pick up one of each and I have to say I am impressed by both. Neither require any modification except for hemming and both are a true slim fit with a lovely drape. If I had to pick one over the other I'd give it to the EP trousers by the smallest of margins as they just feel really, really nice on but to be honest I don't think you can go wrong with either. Shirt is really nice quality too although I think the neck might be a half inch too big. Apologies for the crappy iphone pics.

Thoughts on these Carmina Chelsea boots? Half of me really likes them and the other half isn't quite sure.
Come on man, basically the only home grown quality product out there is RM Williams, so when you have an opportunity to buy them go for it. I'm not entirely sure, but given the great things people say about RM Williams construction I think they'd be close if not on par with Carmina (only for boots). I love the look of some of those Carmina chelsea boots, but I couldn't bare to admit that I'd snubbed RM Williams for something European.
(For the record, this is about as patriotic as I get)
FXH, from now on, I will only cold wash and drip dry my shirts, jumpers, trousers and shorts. I have heard fabric softener will destroy your clothes, but people who smell my clothes say they smell great, and that is attributable to fluffy :D.
What about when one of your kids, or your wife cuddles you? The smell of your beautiful, fabric softened shirts will work wonders. That's why they call it 'cuddly'.
It also makes it much easier to iron.
Only thing i didnt like was the inch of "disappearing" collar under the knot-boner .. probably the angle
I like the pjohnson semi cutaway high collar personally. Did you know there are interlining options too? e.g. if I get a MTM with BD collar ill go lightest interlining for greatest roll. I generally prefer unfused collars and wear my shirts soft. I never use my collar stays unless Im at a wedding/funeral that commands respect.
Good quality fabric = easy to iron too :) Sometimes i just roll my shirts after the spin cycle and then hang them and for casual wear the soft unironed look is quite good.
Always iron shirts with tie and i never starch (sorry FXH) ... i also bare my ankles regularly
It may be hard to believe but I actually don't have a pair of their chukkas so I can't say for sure :) I'm normally a G as well.
yes i regret that comment now .. synthetics also stay well ironed hehe
OK better choice of words would be "better weaves = easier to iron"
so a twill is much easier than a poplin as an example.
PG isn't who you're thinking.
not sure if you guys already know but Herringbone is having a pop up sale next to Tiffany's in martin place. I just went over to have a quick look - suits are $399, ties $50, pants $80ish, knits $70 from the top of my head.
Not many sizes left from what I could see (but I didn't spend too long, was waaaay too crowded) a lot off 44+ suits / jackets. A few good quality knits/cardigans in the large/medium sizes too.
