You could try shipito or hopshopgo.

Or just their stockists page http://www.tannergoods.com/pages/stockists#. Or email them and ask which of their stockists they've sent this belt to. They should have records of that sort of thing.

Also, a lot of different retailers make belts in that sort of colour/buckle combination. You could also try one of the custom retailers like Equus or Narasanget.

Local SF member "Naka" has an MTO belt from Equus Leather (or somewhere very similar) and he seems very happy with it. It looks very nice.

I have three belts from Equus, fantastic leather and a decent price. Royal Mail is super fast too, which is an added bonus. I've been meaning to order another one. They have an SF discount code too.
Don't know how to feel about JM checking out my belt unbeknownst to me tongue.gif

On a completely unrelated note, I watched this happen live at X Games Aspen... scary stuff, those things weigh 500kgs.

This might be a little cheaper - http://store.capsulestore.com.au/collections/tanner-goods

Just re hats.

I have worn straw hats since the early 80s when I was in the airlines and found walking around Singapore or hot climes led to heatstroke and sunburn.

The result is that I am still free of any melanomas etc and I have lived my life near the beach, on my uncle's farm at Wagga on holidays and generally in the sun.

Anyone that is fairskinned (and/or tonsorially challenged) definitely needs to wear a hat in summer and probably 9 months of the year in places like Sydney IMO.

After turning 55 I found I also became sun intolerant to the point I have to use sun cream nearly every day.

Ambergris find...



A man walking his dog has discovered a ‘horrible smelling’ lump of sperm whale vomit thought to be worth around £100,000.

Ken Willman originally paid little attention to the dirty yellow rock his dog Madge dug up as the pair walked along Morecombe’s beach.

However, upon arriving home he says something “triggered my mind” and he looked the substance up on the internet.

On doing so, unemployed Mr Willman discovered the substance is likely to be ambergris - a lump of sperm whale vomit – which is used in perfumes such as Chanel No.5 to amplify the scent.

The lump of vomit is often called ‘floating gold’ and is said to smell like old wood or fungus. It acts as a scent stabiliser when combined with other ingredients, however.

Capsule store in Syd stocks Tanner IIRC. Not sure if it's any cheaper.

Saw this on the side of SF... anyone going to go?

What does GY charge for a basic suit?

Holy crap. Where have you been all my life. None of us knew this. Goddamit I spent ages looking for an alternative to Tanner because of shipping.

 

But thanks.

post #25498 of 57889
Tanner actually have 3-4 Aus stockists IIRC - check their stockists list.

I am a Tanner Belt owner, but I think they are overpriced. They have gone up about 30-40% in price over the last few years. A lot of companies make very similar belts for less these days.

i went last year and ordered some shirts. he had a deal going on thomas mason stuff.
the suit prices were pretty similar to chan, but chan has increased a bit of late so im not sure if yao has done the same.
$1200 and up. expect $1500 for something half decent.
post #25500 of 57889
Thank-you. What's the quality like compared to PJs at that $1500 price point? I don't really know how to tell...
