As for AT, I know that people have different experiences there. Mine have all be positive.


Yes, sportswriter at Australian Associated Press covering mainly Formula One, tennis, golf and AFL, which is sadly inescapable. Used to write a syndicated style column, some of which can still be read on Ludlows web site. Looking at them now they are a bit dated and my ideas have changed a little.

I understand about American Tailors.

+1 for Boggi - i have quite a few basics from there

JM-Oh no I was just starting a conversation a while back as some people where talking about going Hidetaka Fukaya for bespoke; entirely theoretical sadly....trying to save up but at times I feel like it is absolutely worth it and other times as if I have gone full retard as I'll be buying shoes which cost around 3-4,000.

No need to apologies at all regarding the EG and Carmina lasts; I have only been to DubMonk once as it is a pain to get there as I live in an annoying place. Tried some Crockett Jones on but didn't have much time to spend and we couldn't find anything particularly good as I have slim heels which are hard to fit. Next time I'm there will be sure to check out the 202 as it is a particularly fetching last in my eyes (especially on the chelsea) and if it fits great; who knows I might walk out with a little debt on my hands. The rain last doesn't fit me tried on at AM and they seemed fairly nice about it; though I'm not a big fan of Carmina lasts as too much elongation looks awkward on my feet.

P.S.
Tobias any word on the ties?

I just picked up some Rain last full brogues.

 

Wider in the fore-foot and more elegant than the simpson last but perhaps a smidge too wide for me (laces are tightened all the way) but heel is perfect (narrower than Robert last) for me.

 

either way its the best fitting Carmina last ive tried to date for my foot (ive now got simpson, robert, rain)

Does anyone have a stake in, or know anyone who owns or runs any venues in/around the Melbourne city suitable for a stand-up oriented show? I'm looking for venue options to do a show in the Fringe Festival this year, provided I can get it together by then! Anyway, I don't need a big space, not even a nice one, just a space that'll help me break even and thought I'd put it out there in this community.

Trades Hall has some rooms that they use for the comedy festival.

Looking good Romp.

PS I recall you were looking to bring out some corduroys this winter, cut from the same pattern as your O&J chinos. Do you still have plans for them or is Suit Shop (understandably) taking up all your time these days?

we were going to bring out cords but the honest answer is we couldnt get the quality we wanted at a reasonable price point 

 

with suitshop my eyes are really being opened to the quality of construction that can be achieved in china so we may steer O&J down that path for certain lines in the future.

 

FWIW we have just signed off on a new casual shirting range in OJ which im hoping turn out awesome:)
