No, this is a more true to life pic of it: http://www.themensshop.com.au/MJ-Bale-Cotton-Blue-Blazer/MJ-Bale-Jackets/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=121107_customer

Hahaha, was that you at the Rooster's press conference?

 

Actually, a couple of other kids have expressed interest in that particular MJ Bale jacket.

Thanks for that. Am I alone in thinking that it would look far better with brown (horn) buttons?

Wow, hadn't seen that, he looks ok with the exception of the pocket square.

That is Dartagnan Red sporting his Xavier Jacket.

 

The other day, he tried to high-five me, I went a little too hard and broke his arm.

 

What are you talking about? The pocket square looks fine.

 

To answer your question, it is intended to be a cotton suit rather than an 'odd sports coat' however, it looks excellent as is. It could do with brown buttons, but that is just preference.

I have thought about getting the buttons replaced. Brown would be great, MOP would be next level but would take some effort sourcing them in right sizes (due to working button holes) and are quite costly.

So what is everyone's strategy for click frenzy?

Reckon MJ Bale will put up anything great?

They are doing 2 shirts for $100. That is their contribution to click frenzy. They clearly didn't take it too seriously, but then again, who would? They should have put their collection shirts for $50, if they had any balls.

 

What are you doing O&J?

 

Their polos look decent - as JM said. They are going for $50 at the moment, which is a bargain.

Uh oh, working button holes may not be compatible with my disproportionately long arms...

Yeah, Xavier jacket has working button holes CHECKstar. Not all MJ Bale jackets do, so maybe some of them will work well for you.

Ah, I didn't see that. Well now I have no reason to even check out clickfrenzy.

 

I'd rather one of O&J's shirts than two MJ Bale, spewing I missed that sale due to study.

Don't be so quick to dismiss. I doubt I will ever buy another MJ Bale/Herringbone suit/shirt. It really pisses me off to know know that I will have to take up the sleeves every time I buy something. Same goes for R&B. That, and the length of the jackets are too long - for both brands.

 

HC shirts look perfect. Nice big collar, slim through chest, waist and hips and SHORT in the sleeves. Or maybe he just hasn't measured it correctly :)?

thanks - although we wont be participating in click frenzy (dont have enough stuff in stock at the moment to make it worthwhile - the $100 shirt sale cleaned us out - an early O&J frenzy maybe? hehe)
