Useful as I only wear over the calf socks.

Cheers Akula

 

Maybe HC will stock some thicker socks!

Comparing the Tricker's with last 348, I would say that the 348 are marginally tigher. Hope that helps

Thanks deingesicht. I think the C&J "E" is just their standard width, equivalent to most other English shoes' "F" or medium fit. Actually, IIRC the Tricker's standard medium fitting is designated "5", though Herring probably just call it F to avoid confusion.

I think my experience with Tricker's running small might have been a last-specific issue, as while I'm a 9.5 in the CJ 348/358 I was a 10 in the Tricker's 7334 (discontinued I believe). Generally speaking, the CJ 34/58 is a narrow last too and can be hard to fit wider-than-average Aussie feet. Bloody sleek shoes though!

What do you think of the Belgrave acorn colour? I think it would age well but I'm not sure of it's versatility while the leather is still light and new.

Merry Christmas eve guys! Cant wait!

 

Great to see all the near chrissy purchases; those Trickers I like v.much!

Can you guys speak of how the waist (the most suppressed part) of barba and finamore slim-fit shirts are? Are they very tight?

I have black label (the slimmest fit) Finamore which are very slim through the waist. If you're not a stick then don't bother. I also have white label Barba (black label Barba being slimmer) and these have more room in the waist and IMO a more generous (and normal) slim fit shirt. Hope that helps....

hey guys,

what's a good brand of wool to get a suit made? I'm looking for something on the lighter side so it will be bearable to wear during spring and autumn.

Planning to get one made in singapore so looking to get a quote on how much a particular fabric costs.

Thanks

Yes iSurg Nigella has a 'BIG ARSE' sadly don't think much of her cooking to be honest.

I finally talked the wife into seafood as opposed to bloody another turkey. The year my son was born the turkey was 14 pounds the boy 12 mind that was at three months.

Now I have to spend most of the morning doing the prep but it should be cooler here in Canberra tomorrow.

To all Australian SF'ers Bah Humbug! Enjoy the day, the love of family, the company of friends and I hope every one has their sartorial desires fulfilled.

Some of the new loro piana stuff is very nice. My latest acquisition was i think 280g but open weave 3 ply s120s ... Its very light and i have minimal padding and an ultra light horse hair canvas. Plus i had it half lined so it breathes really well.

I forgot to mention that I went to doublemonk a couple of weeks ago. I purchased an umbrella in racing green with whangee handle. They also stock various other essential items. I recommend you go there if you similar needs. Though doubtless most dandified individuals in Melbourne already have.

Anyone able to share contact information for Double Monk?

Hey lads I just saw Joseph Anthony bespoke is on scoupon, bespoke shirt for $69. Has any one had an experience with them and whether theyr worth it. I'm 19 and I'll be growing so I don't need a shirt that will last me for a long time just something that will last a formal function I have sconing up. The other option around that price range is a tm lewin. Thoughts?

I just bought their 'The Essential' briefcase from their pop up shop in Camden, London, and can attest to how brilliant and sturdy the construction is. Never mind the incredible awesome design.

I know them fairly well (Tony ply's me with scotch and/or beer occasionally) and despite rumour they're a really nice bunch of people.

Shirts aren't too bad, I'm fairly happy with the ones I got (especially the recent ones though that may be down to upgraded fabric). The first 2 were not the greatest, but I have noticed a steady if not spectacular improvement since the last few (the last 2 are very very good though I did go for top of the range Monti fabric).

This deal will be for their cheaper fabric though (though there is a huge selection and you can upgrade for a fee). Can't really go wrong at that price point though. Further up the food chain there are other options (FT Russell, Parker's, etc - all of whom have excellent customer service).
