Gerry - I was checking your tumblr out today, I reckon I can almost pinpoint your house based on that lane shot mate!

 

I'm heading back to Melbourne soon, apart from double monks anything else worth wandering through?

Yes I think it would look nicer in a burgundy of some sort. They're from some Spanish outfit called Andrew Lock. Yet another Spanish shoemaker, though I wouldn't be suprised if they were in some way related to Meermin given the designs.

Andrew is American, just the shoes are made in spain. They have no connection to either Carmina or Meermin, from what I recall. I believe he posted it on his affiliate thread somewhere.

Thanks for checking it out smile.gif You're welcome to come by and play the guitars!

 

By the way, my Kent Wang long sleeved polo arrived yesterday and I was wearing it today - I ordered a large as per Kent's advice but they sent a medium instead. It was pretty snug around the arms to begin with but stretched out nicely the more i wore it.

 

It turned out to be the right size for me and I'm glad for the error!

I wouldn't wear them with a shiny light coloured suit unless you want to look like a spiv. On the other hand you will blend in at the races.
But whatever you do, for God's sake burn those slippers top left!

I wouldnt wear them with a light colour suit. Light grey suits i prefer black shoes.

 

Thanks for the help, some great info.

 

I've got a dark grey suit being made, kind of a steel grey, so thinking that might just sneak in.

Also thinking twice about pairing them with khaki chinos.

 

Prince of Paisley, you baggin' my Aquilas?!  ...lol way ahead of you, might keep them around to laugh at occasionally. Its funny, they cost the same as those brown Loakes next to them.

So even you find it hard to wear a non-white pocket square to work, let alone a square that isn't folded in the pocket?

 

Everyone comments on it. Most people don't like it. Even on a 'casual friday' or when you're out on the weekend, people don't like it.

Does anyone know some tailors based in Tasmania? Am going there and would like to check the competition out there.

After reading this thread, I gave mine to Vinnies, along with an inventory of Tarocash merchandise. I free up space, and I give back to charity. Rocking.

Just emailed Kimber about his boots.

 

Awaiting response!

Its not that they dont like it, i think its just not common .. In fact ive never ever seen anyone in my workplace wear one except for myself. Id always attract some comments and for that reason ill use it sparingly and subtley because i dont want to be attention seeking

Fully handfinished, half lined, notch lapels, soft shoulder, welt/flap pockets, kissing buttons, button fly, 2inch cuff and the best touch...
Patrick added some camo pocket detailing as a little surprise (he knows me well)

LOVE the camo detailing.. ill try to get a better picture tomorrow


Did you pick the "camo" or did they choose for you? Also can you if it's not too indiscreet, let me know how much they charged you? Cheers mate

If I wear a pocket square (on occasion) and someone looks at it or points it out I take it out and fake blow my nose on it then put it back in my pocket. Every time. Never gets old for me.

Why is it not common? Do people just not like pocket squares or something?

 

Even in a casual setting, people think it is OTT. I think it looks excellent, without looking too 'try hard'.

 

This German lady I was talking to, remarked, 'if a man dresses well in Australia, he is assumed to be gay'.

 

Silly Australians.

Haha, I guess that works.

Morning Matt,

I hope you're well,

Thanks for your continued interest. The shoes arrive in a few weeks. I experienced a few delays with the production for the first order to ensure they are perfect. I would love to get you into a pair.

Best Wishes,

Christian

They ought to have a listen to Macklemore's 'Same Love' so they stop bandying about stereotypes.

It is absolutely shocking.

 

Mind you, these people aren't exactly the wealthiest, so quality isn't something they have ever had reason to appreciate.

 

These 'blokes' I was talking to from the central coast that had driven into Sydney for a night of fun, fuck, it was the epitome of rough.
