I bought some mezlan chukka boots from GILT online, pretty happy with them. Price was good although I wasn't excited about their shipping costs. I'm looking for some brown Oxford wing tips. The ones on GILT have been outrageous. Any suggestions on brands and where to find them? (I live in Adelaide)

Cheers! (I'm new)

The main focus for now is getting all of the stuff for the trunk show here in April and they won't be included in that. What will is the 4 new cashmere knit ties (burgundy, dark blue, grey, brown), about 15 new awesome wool ties in small run qtys, the 5 new grenadines (maroon, black, navy, forest green and chocolate), and about another 10 new woven silks (TBD). So we'll see around 35 new ties, about 10 cashmere scarves (3 new additions on last year), and some of the new smartphone friendly cashmere gloves too, they are from Scotland also. So all in all pretty excited about what's coming up!


But I only have so much money :(

It'll be at Ludlows, if you have purchased off me in the past you will get an invite by email in a few weeks, but if not there will be plenty of info on here beforehand. Set for the 18th at this stage and it will be after hours, so it will kind of be a meetup anyway. It won't be a public event per se, more for Ludlows clients my clients and SF members. It will be a great chance for me to put a lot of faces to names and a great chance for you guys to look and feel product in person.
I know it would be like laying pearls before swine, but do you have any plans for a Sydney exhibit?

Maybe I missed it, but are you available for Canberra based viewings?

OK buster you make a powerful argument. I've always liked black knit ties but now it's become clear that my life has been empty without one. They are everything I thought I never wanted in a tie...

Trouble is I prefer regular tipped ties to square end ones so I'll have to have a look around to find one I really like.

Not at this stage but not because I don't want to. Just that with not having a stockist in Sydney (something I'm hoping to change this year) I'd have to hire a venue, provide drinks, food etc etc it's a fairly expensive proposition. I'm not the sort of person that likes to do these things half assed and I'm not against the idea by any means. Perhaps if someone wanted to team up for something it would be made easier. Hint hint Rob....

Absolutely, We've often turned these kind of things in to mini meet ups where the couple of Canberra members go for a beer/coffee and look at a few things. But it can also be organised one on one, at your home or office provided it's not before 5.30pm. There is of course no obligation to buy anything. Just pm me if there is anything you want to check out.

After the discussion on the watches I linked a few pages back, and with the objective of a sportier weekend watch in mind I went back and did some reading and visited a few watch stores to try on all the usual suspects (Rolex DJ and Sub, Omega Seamaster OP and Pro) but  I ended up short-listing the Stowa Prodiver (shown here w. plain steel bezel and non-orange hand - note, not my picture). I really like this model because it's not a 'hommage' or replica of any 'established' swiss watch, and it's at a surprisingly reasonable price-point. The orange-hand version on a green zulu strap (as shown on wornandwound.com) looks particularly awesome, and that's the sort of relaxed aesthetic I think I'll be gravitating toward.

 

 

Great review here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JpMn9aXlq8 (by wornandwound). Anyone have any feedback on this Stowa/impressions? I haven't pulled the trigger on this yet, but that video really sold me on it...

 

Down-the-track grail watch is still an IWC 500107 (Portugese Automatic), which I prefer to the Chronograph.

Maybe the coming soon Henry Carter black grenadine can fill this space - with a tie that would be blank space if not for the texture if I am reading (and agreeing with) fxh's argument correctly.

After all this talk about a black knit tie, I regret not packing mine to Sydney. Definitely am packing it into the luggage on the way back here.

 

PoP, I think I might have a black knit with a regular tip. If I find it, I will be happy to give it to you.
