Gents, what are your thoughts on MJ Bale's Monaco HB (and what does that stand for?) navy jacket? I bought one today along with matching trousers with the intention of wearing them for the most part as separate items. The pic on-line looks a little different to what I saw today as mine has brown/tortoiseshell buttons. I'm thinking chinos or jeans etc would look great, but could do with a second opinion as I'm a little green. Cheers!
Most 'odd pants' would go great with a navy jacket; just off the top of my head grey, light browns, whites/beiges etc. Navy Jackets are truthfully very easy to pair. HB= Herringbone pattern though pics suggest it is a very faint pattern at that.
Thanks TehBunny. The penny dropped re HB not long after I posted. I'm locked in now anyway so I guess we'll see how it turns out. The weave is apparent in the flesh but the cotton/hemp fabric gives it a pretty relaxed feel. It was a trade off between the formal wools and the too casual cottons I saw. I hope this strikes a nice balance.
Am waiting to pick up cleaning from Rene's behind 101 Collins. Cleaning is done at the port Melb location. Family run. Have heard they are good. We shall see... Around 20 bucks for 3 pieces, next day pickup.
Got these two Borrelli shirts from Shopthefinest recently but I need a size larger. Thought I would see if anyone in Australia was interested before I ship these back to the US for an exchange (needs to be shipped back by Tuesday so get at me quick if you are interested). Cost me about US$180 shipped each, willing to let them go for A$150 + shipping, won't go lower because this is the amount I'll get if I returned them.
