DB, aside from Moscot as recommended by Geoffrey Firmin (who wears the Grunya style well), check out Mosley Tribes and Paul Smith (both made by Oliver Peoples). Tom Ford (et al) make nice frames though must are overpriced. Tortoiseshell style acetate frames are also made by brands such as SUPER, Han, Francois Pinton, Garrett Leight (Oliver Peoples founder's son), Lafont, and that's all I can think of off the top of my head..

If you want unparalleled quality, look at Cutler & Gross. 0935 is a classic shape in dark tortoise, as is the 0734.

Dusty - I stumbled upon a new glasses place the other day in Greville Street. Reasonably hip as you might imagine in that area. They were doing groovy stuff for $100 for prescription readers iirc - more for bi-focals - lots of options. Tortoiseshell - or facsimile - round James Joyce specs, Buddy Holly etc etc . Forget the name. I have a card somewhere. I did notice they had an ad campaign somewhere in print media a few days later. They have no resident optometrist but will refer to a friendly one or use existing scripts.

They also have a sydney presence

Clive Palmer has about as much chance of being prime minister as he does of ever wearing a decent fitting suit.... Or brining dinosaurs back to life.

Thanks Fxh, great price pt too. If you stumble across the card, you know how to find me.

Back to good OL Clive, represents the strip definitively. When is he gonna start drilling? If I had his coin my undies would be canvassed.

Stout in the fridge is beckoning.....

The website photos simply don't do them justice... the dark brown has a beautiful mottled effect. Unfortunately I've blown most of my allocated clothing budget so couldn't bring them home today, but next month they will be mine.

As an aside, where are your "go to" locations for pocket squares in Melbourne? I'm presenting at a conference in Sydney next week and want to step my outfit up a notch.

I'm at two conferences in Sydney this week what'd the chances be that we cross paths at the same one?

I'm once again exploiting the power that, that is AM! Any suggestions for a large frame tortoiseshell glasses, brands etc. Doesn't appear to many stockists of Oliver 

Peoples around, and apart from Persol, l'm not familiar with others....

Cheers. 

 

Oh BM - have you got any Herringbone - Herringbone grey jackets for sale? I should have pm'd but hey it's friday! 

 

PS - Michael Sy my man, this weekend appreciate the shape and form of the lady, no checking out dub, triple or quadriple monks. 

 

Shuron or Ray Ban.

I've had Wayfarers with prescription lenses for 6 years and now have Clubmasters (Ronsir brownline style) as well. They are really tough, I wear them all day everyday.

I'm at Australian Technology Park Wednesday/Thursday, presenting Thursday afternoon. Would be an amusing coincidence if you were there also - let me know :)

No worries plenty of stock in the silks at the moment, some of the wools are getting low but will re-stock anyway.

I like the new wayfarers. They're the only sunglasses you can wear inside.

Some grey herringbone jackets up on STP from Ralph Lauren. I remember some people lamenting that they didn't get the Herringbone one recently.

Has anyone bought anything directly off the SNS Herning website? Been trying to get in contact with them but haven't heard back. Do they ship to Australia and are quoted prices inclusive or exclusive of VAT?
post #30314 of 53689

Man, second time wearing my loakes today. Went for a walk along the harbour, my feet are shredded. 

 

I hope they are the right size. I'm taking them to the leatherman to be broken in on monday (if I can walk)...

Did you go the full last making bespoke route etc or just went with a pair you saw on the site?

What sort of secure payment did they have?

Literally? or is this after they make up your personal last?
