Never handled a Baracuta in person - anyone own one? Whats the "Teflon" coating like? How warm are they? The MJb one is 100% cotton, unlined. Kinda like the tartan check on the G9 photos. Hmm.

Henry Bucks sell them if you want a fondle.

Here are some rather poor photos of yesterday's outfit, featuring the return of the orange trousers:

- Silk print bow tie by Panta;
- Blue odd jacket with brown suede elbow patches by Herringbone;
- Blue and white flowery linen pocket square by Herringbone;

- Chocolate brown penny loafers by Cheaney for Herringbone.

Just moved to Sydney a couple of months ago, and wanted to say hello to everyone.

The problem with Baracuta's is that you have missed the boat by two months.  The brand has been bought by an Italian company who is re-launching it.  Previously they had an official website where you could buy the original or slim fit (better) model made in England.  Also there was a code for a 20% discount so Dad and I got one each for ~$370 inc. delivery compared to Bucks' $425 for one.  The Teflon coating feels fine and they are reasonably warm and wear well, however, the inside Tartan lining is synthetic, and the collar  is lined with synthetic so plan to fold it over and not leave it up.  There are better things in its style, i.e., Paul and Shark has some great silk blouson jackets but nothing better vfm.  I was at DJ's Sydney and Zegna had a blouson for $3000!!!!!

That could take you some time, I think there's over 4.5 million of them now. I'd start with large public places and shout loudly.

Posting on a wide variety of forums is a good way to start though.

Welcome Nabil.

Hello there! Where are you moving from, out of interest?

I have a black G9. I think the tartan lining is crucial. I love wearing it unzipped so the lining provides some interest.

I'm visiting Melbourne for a week from the 14th of February and I'm making a list of places to visit. So far I have:
- Azzaro's
- Henry Bucks
- Beggar Man Thief
- Double Monk
- Rocco's Shoes
- Harrold's

Brisbane is pretty desolate as far as menswear goes so I am going to be like a child in a candystore.

Do you Melbourne boys have any recommendations for other places of interest? I wouldn't mind having a G&T or two with you all.

  • Herringbone at 35 Collins St just to catch up with Christian if nothing else (maybe meet up with him outside of Herringbone to check out his new range of shoes as well as the Christian Kimber suit wallets, shoe trees and welt brushes)
  • Incu on Flinders Lane for streetwear and APC jeans
  • Ludlows (Mezzanine Level, 530 Lonsdale street) for accessories including Fox umbrellas, Kent Wang pocket handkerchiefs, English toiletries and a good range of Henry Carter ties some of which aren't available from Jason anymore - Richard (the owner) is a great guy
  • Make an appointment to check out P Johnson in South Melbourne just to get a feel for the place and also check out their range of ties, pocket handkerchiefs and Fox umbrellas - Matt and Tom are very friendly and the place is beautiful
  • MJ Bale to meet Paolo and Tom

Hey, guys. Was in Sydney for a few days and checked out QVB. Has anyone bought timepieces from the antique shop on level 1? They had quite a few omega piepans, older IWC, and old Le Coultre. Very interesting...
