Maybe it's rational...

Yes, you could be on to something.

That's a good pickup. I'm not sure if Stewart's is a chain or there are just a few stores with the same name around Sydney; I know there's one in the MLC building and one on George St somewhere as well... D'Urban are good suits for the price. I know someone who swears by them, and they look well on him. Yours made in HK?

Yep made in HK. Think I need to get the pants altered as there's a little bit too much slack in the thigh and calf area when standing. Aside from that the Jacket is liveable - maybe a little waist suppression necessary, but otherwise not bad at all OTR!

Better check at your local HBone before the goodies run out...

Circular quay store has most stock normally

Gents I can confirm the HB Chatswood chase store has the 50% off and they had the c & j loafers there too. Meanwhile I wasn't impressed with their dress belts at all, any ideas where I can get a nice good quality leather brown belt in sydney? (Pref similar to the Westminster belt herrings shoes sell)

Any tobacco suede CJ Hallams at 50% off? And damn, I'm missing another Melb meet up. I am still stuck in the middle of nowhere.

I think that the 50% off only applies to C&J loafers and only in Sydney.

I can confirm that; was in the CQ store today. I found a very nice blue striped navy suit, peak lapel... but it had a single vent, disappointing.

Apparently all OTR HB suits are half canvassed - only their MTO ones are full canvassed. 

They seem to have quite a few sizes left in their charcoal suits, for anyone interested.

Unfortunately, they've only got a couple of smaller sizes left, a UK6 and a UK7.5.

I have seen that Carmina spectator in better photos on SF and eBay and they are really nice looking spectators...very sharp.

I have had D'Urban suits for years and they are great and fit Aussies well if that means anything. Stewarts is a tregualr menswear place.

Actually, I bought them from the Chatswood Store.

If you're in town, your best bet is Circular Quay or Chifley Square; where the larger stores are.
