Why do you need to be sorry in the face of rudeness and boorish behaviour? I would have answered you easily except I have no experience with MTM nor P Johnson in Australia. Some people are having a bad day and taking it out on you in a cowardly way- anonymously through the internet, shouting in CAPITAL LETTERS, and some idiot deems it appropriate to reinforce that.  Sounds very much like schoolyard bullying to me.

 

There is no need to be sorry if you did jack all wrong.

^^ I agree, no need to apologize. 

 

btw, although I'm not a fan of Tracy Grimshaw, watching her interview the Sydney DJ's boggles my mind. They still do not admit that they crossed a line: "It's not up to us to decide what to do with the prank call. Someone else decides on that."

 

Exercise some common sense, or bad things happen.

Anything and everything so far - Aspesi, Boglioli, Filson, Alpha. I haven't eliminated anything yet since I'm still doing my research.

 

I'm watching Supernatural at the moment - been watching it from the beginning. This is a scene from the episode I'm watching now:

 

 

I just realised something - I've just bought a trench and a peacoat (from the original owner and made in the year I was born!). I guess it's only natural that I should be looking for a field jacket!

Presenting a point of view with justifiable rationale does not equal 'schoolyard bullying'. Welcome to SF.

And no, don't apologise, I think it's good to generate some healthy debate, even if it is deviating towards negativity.

What exactly is the debate being generated?

 

And what is your so-called "justifiable rationale"?

 

If you think:

 

A) shouting in CAPS;

B) repeating the shouting in CAPS;

 

constitutes presenting point of views, I suggest a possible career path as a radio jockey. God knows they need more of you.

I feel so relaxed and calm.

 

Dartagnan, thanks for not showing me the Il-Bisonte wallet. And who the hell is your friend, that you are giving this too? Better not be anyone from your workplace facepalm.gif.

 

Looks like I am not getting the Rubinacci pocket square after all :(. Damn I was looking forward to that sexy Mother******.

Just as a further reference to anyone else if they haven't gotten the clue yet.

 

 

 

I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion, as you are to yours regarding the importance of pricing in bespoke options. But requoting something four times is hardly constructive.

BTW

 

Now that we are talking about P Johnson again, has anyone seen his new loafers?

 

http://www.pjohnsonshop.com/collections/loafers/products/black-and-white-woven-shantung-silk-tie

 

Damn, I have years to go before I put a loafer that looks like that in my wardrobe. That looks terrible. I now see what you guys were talking about with Apolis, and some stuff being absolute crap and others being golden. Cearly P J should stick to suits!

 

P.S Streetminimal is a nice guy, he can also be a douche. We've knocked heads before ;).

I saw the post but they're all out of my size everywhere I've looked, e.g. http://www.buzzricksons.com/type-65-combat-jacket-p-139.html

 

Why do you say it's amazing?

Nice fit. You've been following Foo's "no white shirt with pure white PS" advice, I see.

btw, did anyone catch vox's commentary on the "great debate" on tumblr?  I don't understand why he would delete those golden posts. 

btw, deets please

That looks beautiful. I got my Ettinger wallet a little cheaper than that new with tags on eBay but that is. really quite lovely. Thanks.

In regards to P Johnson pricing search this thread for some ideas and there is a P Johnson thread too. Just bear in mind that it really does depend what you order. The guys at P Johnson in South Melbourne are great and will happily help by telephone or email.
