Oh so they are trimmers rather than clippers? Or both? I guess if you are just using them on your beard the cord doesn't matter - I wouldn't want to cut my own hair with something corded though.

It's likely not a compliment, but I'll take it as one.

I've had about 2 barber cuts in 3 years since I bought my Wahl clippers, great investment (one or two accidents along the way though, too, it must be said...).

Wahl is a top brand.

The missus bought me one of those multi-head trimmers a while ago, and I've never looked back.

At the risk of asking an open ended stupid question I preface this one my stating that I have searched Google prior to seeking input from my learned colleagues here.

 

Does anyone know if ETRO (mens obviously) is sold in SYD, MEL, BNE?  Id have thought some of the usual suspects may have had some of the range but have not been able to locate.  

 

If anyone knows, let me know.

On a similar issue have had one of these for some years now, in fact have had three, left one in hotel, one dropped on the floor and recently purchased the replacement.  They are essential pieces of kit for all of us.  If there is one pet hate besides women's peep toed shoes, its men with hairy ears and noses - THERE IS NO EXCUSE!!.  For $19 from Harvey (the greatest online own goal) Norman, bargain!!.

This was me before the trimmer

This is me now!!

Do yourselves a favor if you not already owners of one.  It always amazes me that women continue to wear peep toed shoes (WTF) and men dont see their hairy ears and noses.

I had no idea.  Thanks for that.  I frequent the Collins St store whenever I am there, for some reason have never noticed ETRO.  Thanks again.

Just my observation from thrifting the Bone stuff but the shirts and ties were much better about 5 years ago IMO. I was wearing a very nice Bone tie I thrifted and the silk Made in Italy quality was like a hand made job with robust silk.

WP1967, I don't know if it is still stocked there, but Mitchell Ogilvie used to have some more casual Etro gear - mainly shirts and odd jackets - in stock when they were nearer the bottom of the Mall on Edward St. I haven't been in there since they moved further down Edward St about a year ago and so am not sure if they still have any Etro stock.

I did have a look at Ogilvie's, nothing in the Edward Street or the Emporium stores.  Just regret not buying a couple of pieces when I was in HK - talk about reverse buyers remorse!!

5 years ago, ties were still made in Como, Italy. When they shifted production to Tunisia, I kept an open mind, hoping that things wouldn't change.

Unfortunately, quality took a turn for the worse, and now we have woven ties that do not last (the stitching on mine came loose after about 5 wears) and print ties that coil up like slinkies when unfurled to full length (as if the thread holding the tie together is somehow too short and tight). patch[1].gif
