^ Great live band and she had a very dynamic stage presence, went to a few memorable gigs at the Trade Union Club and the Crystal Ballroom in the early 80's.

In my experience their fits are a bit baggy though (on the V necks at least).
Cotton too.

they really should add pricing to their website.

I have that Epaulet cardigan.

 

It is excellent. Well worth it if you are after a grey outerwear piece.

 

I was wearing it with the red O&J Chambray on Saturday night. The chick that runs Argyle was digging it :) (best bar/club in Sydney btw). Oh, G-Banger your relative, the one that interviewed Patrick was at the Argyle on Saturday night. He stuck out quite positively - who wears double monks to a bar? Total player.

This is exactly what I am after but, ahem, price...

NB I am looking for wool, not cotton, and not cashmere (too expensive...)

*edit CT has a reasonably priced one too:

Did you know that there is currently a 30% + 15% sale going on at RL? Ask Forum Member DASTIG to help you out. He is a SA at RL. Cheers brahzie.

Sandro from meermin were kind enough to send me a free pair of dub monks + free belt after I emailed them about my defective pair.  So +1 to their great customer service.

The only thing sticking out, Mike Sy, is you for calling out another man's outfit. At a bar. On a Saturday night. Unnecessary, man. You're young - just have a good time smile.gif

Gents, I have some nice stuff that is simply not getting enough love. A mixture of op shop finds and stuff I no longer use. I consider BS on this forum to be exactly that, but I'm happy to offer them to the local lads.

I'm not too organised yet, but a quick early offer is for 2 pairs of suede shoes. The first is a pair of burgundy EG suede brogues with dainite soles in 10.5E. There is a mark in the suede on theinside of the right heel cup, but it's pretty unobtrusive - nobody has ever noticed but me. Looking for $200'

The other is a pair of C&J Kent penny loafers in choc brown suede, dimpled rubber sole. Size 11E. Hardly ever worn. $100.

They looked good! I complimented him on them. He bro-fisted me. That was it. We didn't sit down for coffee and discuss it.

 

Fuark..........this forum is wiiiiiiierd.

 

You've never complimented another man on an item of clothing they are wearing? puzzled.gif

 

Or maybe the phrase 'A sore thumb' refers to something noticeably bad, not just noticeable, in which case this is a big misunderstanding?

No, TBM is a notorious curmudgeon who spends all his time growing facial hair instead of eyeing off other chaps' fits. The image the Melbourne members promote that they are all lovely, nice, well-dressed people is a pure smokescreen. In reality we all dress head-to-toe in black and meet over coffee to bitch about one another.

Anyone know where I can get a good quality nice navy/red/white striped tie (or variations of said colour scheme). I think the term I've heard for it is a 'repp' stripe? 

 

The usual suspects seem to be vanda, hober, drakes - amirite? Tempted to just go with new Herringbone ties since they moved back to Italy for production and I get a decent price on 'em through work. Figured I would receive the collective wisdom first before pulling the trigger, however.
