Any intel on whether Sydney loafers are on sale at Herringbone?
post #28832 of 51770
Dozens of retailers are being kicked out of their shops in the historic GPO building to make room for a major international retailer.

The owner of the $81 million GPO centre, the Industry Superannuation Property Trust, confirmed on Wednesday that the "majority" of retailers in the centre would be asked to move out over the next six months. However, ISPT chief executive Daryl Browning would not confirm who would be moving into the building, which has been plagued with vacancy and foot traffic problems since it opened in 2004.

"It will continue to be in retail use. That's all I can say," Mr Browning said.

Industry sources told Fairfax Media that the prized new tenant was most likely technology giant, Apple. However, there is also speculation it could be Swedish fashion chain H&M or US retailer Abercrombie & Fitch. H&M announced last week it would open its first Australian shop next year.

"There are three large-space international retailers currently looking for quality space in Melbourne – Apple, H&M and Abercrombie and Fitch," one source said. "If I were a betting person, I would say it's probably Apple."

I really like the GPO space. Lovely place to amble around. Will be sad when they change it. But, that's life.

Thanks mate..

I too like the longer collar points. Manton and Foo prefer BDs with wider spread and more tie space, but somehow, I still prefer this version from Charles.

Think the longer collar points might have something to do with it. I could get Charles to widen the spread, and he'd do it easily enough, but I'm not sure I really want to.

I used to dislike the look as well, but lately, after watching some of the oldies like Casablanca and Sabrina, I've come to change my mind.

Might be worth calling or popping in to see what they would charge.

Slight taper, but not ankle-wrapping. I did the same for my jeans:

Thanks Geoff. I've made some enquiries about possible MTO... I'll let you all know how it goes. Basically I'd like to see if RMW can make me a boot up to the spec of an English bad weather boot, as I'd prefer to buy from home where it's an option.

I have a pair of Craftsmen which have been around the world and are fine in a rain shower but they are getting on in age and water is starting to seep in when walking through puddles or heavy rain as I am wont to do sometimes.

One option is Nialma, who have an owner in Melbourne who can come and meet with you, select fabrics and fit you up. They have Thomas Mason Silverline, 4x shirts @ $120 per.

Would be good to see pics. So we can judge you.

Small feet as well (size ~8-9). My ankles are stick thin, so nothing really fits them well OTR.

 

Will try and get some photos up soon.

Penny would be more versatile than tassels. Whether you go suede or brown leather there is a good case for both. Brown suede loafers are one of the few things missing from my wardrobe (not that there are not plenty of other things I would like to add or upgrade too).

Oh and heading the Mornington Peninsula for the Easter weekend. Cannot wait.

guys,

I've just received delivery of a BNIB Carmina Chelsea boot in Black with rubber sole 8UK Simpson last. I bought this off Skoatibolaget. Below is the link to the boots (and pictures)
http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/news/80216-simpson-negro1

I love the boot unfortunately it is a bit big on me (thought Simpson last was slim but not as slim). Shipping it back to Sweden will cost me a fortune so I am thinking if anyone local (Australia) is interested I can sell it for $450 shipped. Please PM me if you are interested

Thanks

50% off at all stores but unfortunately for me they only had my size (8) in black.

 

Yesterday I emailed one of the C&J retailers in London and asked whether they were prepared to post a pair. They were happy to but I baulked at the price: £283.33 + £45 postage .

 

I've since ordered this pair from Carmina's web store: http://www.carmina.telemaco.es/articulo.asp?idarticulo=3640242
