MJ Bale put these in my mailbox today:

http://www.mjbale.com/suits/tuxedos

Wish one of them was shawl collar, and one was midnight blue satisfied.gif

Still, given the paucity of quality dinner suits in Aus, this is a nice option to have.

Not for the hoodie but the heather sweatshirt. Damned thing is out of stock in the smaller sizes.

Spot on. No point buying customers at no margin if you plan to jack the price up in the near future.

not a big fan of the detailing on the lapels for Franco and Mauritz. the buttoning point on the navy one looks a tad high for my likes.

The Franco is clearly made to appeal to the R&B crowd, while the Mauritz is for the Henry Bucks crowd.

God knows who 'The Vince' is aimed at.

Anyone's had a chance to drop by on the new Double Monk shoe store in Melbourne? I am curious about their Lobb and EG pricing

I heard it's similar to Mr Porter.

FxH - what do you make of the sock/shoe situation here on the mauritz?

 

and no PS on the tux? :(

Basically I see black tie as conservative with small permissible deviations.

If it says black tie and you feel rebellious teenage angst sneaking up - then grow up - don't go if you don't like it.

Otherwise conform and try to stand out, subtly, on details - deep dark blue navy is fine, suede navy slip ons = fine, no socks = immature idiot.

i dont mind midnight navy for a tux

 

I dunno about the slippers though unless you were at Hugh Hefner's mansion... in which case a robe would be more appropriate than a tux ;)

He could just be wearing PINK SOCKS?
post #22710 of 53940

My Sunspel long-sleeved polo arrived today and I couldn't be happier with it. The material is definitely different from pique and the material appears sheer at first glance but it actually sits very well. I can understand how some people would don't like the feel of this though. I've got a Kent Wang rugby on the way and I expect that the material will be different on that one.

 

Anyway, I'm happy with this and I actually have it on now.
