For outerwear, I get by with the following:

1) Tan mac for balmy to cool rainy days

2) Navy overcoat when it gets cold or cold and rainy

3) Navy windbreaker for casual wear on cool, but not cold days

4) Reversible (navy leather and tan suede) A-1 bomber jacket for casual wear on cold days

Weather never gets thaaaat cold in Sydney, so no flannel etc for me.

At this stage, afternoon will see a mid grey POW, light blue shirt, navy bowtie, silk PS and brown shoes and night time will see a white shirt, charcoal suit, black grenadine, black captoe's and a white PS. I'll have a few hours at the hotel to chill, shower and change in-between ceremony and reception luckily.

Sounds perfectly appropriate, Jason.

Have a good time there!

I went through a stage for around 5 years with little kids where I'd be at work sniffing my shoulders all morning and swearing I could smell kid spew. Became a nervous tic and I would smell the smell on reflex even when it wasn't there.

Pro tip: Carry a large clean hankie and throw it over shoulder when you carry kid.

No charge for advice this time.
Consider it a combined wedding/kid birth present.

Very off topic... anyone got any suggestions for an restaurant/bar with a function room in Melbourne for an after work function, with the following requirements:

- finger food/standard bev package for 2 hours or so
- ~$50 a head.
- 30-40 people

The Circular Quay store has a mannequin dressed in a dark green jacket / pastel green trouser outfit. Looks very nice but not exactly a subtle look.

Yeah had a quick squiz on the website and there new stuff. A nice dark green moleskin looking SC but otherwise not much. Ties still look awful and overpriced. Sadly I think there direction is moving away from what a lot of us like them for.

P.S collar gap galore on the campaign on the website

I probably have too many winter jackets as is... and in particular navy jackets. Always buying the navy version of something is a bit of a sartorial rut for me.

Jack Spade Tan Mac
MJ Bale Navy Mac
Gant Rugger Navy Duffle
Gant Riker Hiker/Biker
MJ Bale Navy Harrington

+ hoodies etc


... but whatever. I'm having Luxire make me the navy Version of this old Norse Projects x Lavenham quilted jacket, with full corduroy detailing and all the trimmings. Also a detachable hood.

Clearly it's for more casual wear with jeans and chinos, but personally I don't like the Boggi-esque look of a quilted jacket-come sportcoat. Or a quilted jacket over a suit. For me, they are inherently country and casual. As I've mentioned before, I feel the same way about Barbours.
