post #22816 of 57125
Today's outfit - I was thinking of wearing a blue bow tie but decided to go with the knit instead.

There might be a bit too much green in the outfit, but I was a bit bored with sky blue pocket squares and so decided to go with something with a bit more colour.

Please note that the colour of the jacket is most accurately represented in the last photo - it's not as dark as depicted in the first few photos.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







- MTO blue cotton suit by Deer Style;
- Herringbone shirt;
- Navy knit tie with green dots by "High Tied" (SF member tobiasj);
- Herringbone silk/cotton paisley pocket square;
- Forest green cotton socks by Uniqlo;
- C&J Drummonds in beechnut.

Chaps can someone remind me of the online shirtmaker who has an introductory offer of a blue oxford shirt? Pretty sure I read of it here, but the ol' brain cells are suffering from fatigue.

But, given the prices on the Farage website I think we would all agree that there are much better options for the price. You could get a base PJ suit for the same price as many of them.

Farage bit hit and miss.. I find the shape a tad generous especially around the arms gauging by a guy at work that only wears Farage... His pants also sit too low for my liking and think it's a rear rise rather than front risen issue (looks lower at back)

Thanks for the farage feedback. I walked past their store for the first time the other day on the way to MJ Bale. I think I remember something on their window about 2 suits for $950. But if MJ is a better option, I'll steer my wallet in their direction. Although I see MJ Bale website's inventory is quite low unfortunately.

If someone has made it work like a proper search engine I'd love to know.

Hi everyone. This method is not perfect but does the job. Try this search pattern in google:

 

site:styleforum.net

 

inurl:australian-members or any other thread title (or part thereof) as it appears in your browser's URL

(this is useful if you know which thread you wish to search within, otherwise leave it out in order to search the whole site)

 

For example, to search for "no socks" on this forum within the australian members thread, type this into google: 

 

site:styleforum.net inurl:australian-members "no socks"

 

cheers.

Hilditch and Key is having a good ol sale atm apparently, but like most Western gorilla sizing, my Asian T Rex arms are too short for their sleeves. I always wonder why shirtmakers stop at 34" sleeves with their 15" collar as standard sizing. Give me 33" dammit!

Not only that, blahman, I suspect they'd wouldn't be as slim fit as you'd like. I wonder if seventeen and a half hours without a post is a record for this thread.

 

How's the weather over where you are? It's hasn't hit the expected 37 degrees over here.

 

By the way, apart from Aspesi, does anyone here have recommendations for an M-65 jacket? I might just have to make a trip to the military surplus shops in Melbourne and pick one up. By all accounts, the advice has been to size down when you buy one of these.

post #22830 of 57125

Go surplus or try buzz rickson; my friend bought one and its fantastic!

P.S.

Can someone confirm how Epaulet's chino's fit? From measurements I assume they are a slim-straight rather than a slim-skinny; I'm after the 34 and the thighs seem to be really roomy at 12.75'.
