Sydneysiders, is there much difference between the flagship Woollahra store and the others in terms of the range/stock they have on offer? Westfield Syd is more convenient but I don't want to be left hanging for choices.

Woolahra has a much greater range than WF. Plus, Flat White is a short walk from the store.

Yeah... shorts and Tods, and not a sock in sight will be the go tomorrow.

As a (sort of) Albury boy, it tickles me to see it regarded as the sophisticated alternative to the W smile.gif

But, seriously, I do know what you mean. My Grandfather used to get the odd sports coat made up by a tailor in Albury. It was that kind of place. Good quality fabric (Zegna) but a bit flashy for my tastes (he liked to wear them to the races).

And there was a very traditional department store called Mates, that, as I remember it from my childhood, was the kind of place you could get anything. They had the old fashioned central cashier system - you would pay your money at the counter and the SA would place it in a little overhead zip-line thing with a docket and it would shoot up to a single cashier who sat on a mezzanine. Then your change and a receipt would zip back down.

Last time I was in Albury it was looking prosperous and there was a buzz. I think having more uni students in town has changed the place. But I wonder if you can still get bespoke menswear somewhere on Dean St - or if that side of the place has gone now.

I just don't know how you'd survive as a non-shorts wearer in anywhere with a real summer. Tom Ford be damned.
post #21997 of 54941

woooo blackfriday sales! that PTO list is pretty great. Pitty a few of them dont ship international. Trying to get a discounted filson bag and having no luck :(

post #21998 of 54941
The Exquisite Trimmings one on P Johnson "pochettes" is pretty good too (20%, no VAT, free shipping), if you're into that kind of thing.

Stubbies and boots is a Canberra look, its what they wear when not in trackies.

Although you can't structure a question, I'll answer what you implied - I do have 800+ shoes; A testoni black label and JL, but hey, these are probably poorly hand crafted shoes in Bologna and the UK.
Seeing as you know more about AM than I, please do tell when you visited the workshop, felt his shoes and watched them being crafted. I'm all ears and it will save me the trouble.
EDIT: if you were bright enough to read my post, you would have noticed I said I would go into the store and confirm. So, no, I'm not making excuses for the "crappy" leather as I have no idea what he uses, or who his suppliers are.

 

 

 

but that just doesn't make sense

 

It's like choosing to be with

700

 

 

when you've already been with

700

 

Trust me, think about it and you'll get the comparison.

Finally caved and bought the light grey cashmere Drakes tie there with the "thanks" 20% off code, minus VAT and with free shipping came to about $120. Means I can choose something a little different when the HC cashmere ties arrive.

And I agree with wishiwasricher so here is a picture of some nice shoes (in my opinion, happy to hear polite disagreement).

It just annoys me when people spread misinformation. AM shoes are shit. I've seen them in the flesh. The materials are poor quality. I'm not going to sugar coat it. I tried, but then you came in and started spreading misinformation. If you knew anything about shoes, you would agree with me.

If you want to support a good Australian shoe, go buy a RMW Craftsman boot for the reasonable price of $380. Don't spend $800 at AM.

Here is what I am wearing today. A pair of City II's that are 2 years old and going strong.
