The old Royal Imperials are still a great longwing gunboat even second hand.
The V (suicide) Cleat ones are much loved despite their dangers as indicated by their popular nickname. Not all that hard to find around Melbourne second hand.

I think I remember my mate shooman telling me they made some of the good ones in Australia in the good old days.
I'll ask a knowledgable person for some more info about this. I recall him telling me the same thing.

Like the brown one Rob, very nice. I too think it's a great colour despite not ever owning one.

Dark brown suits are an oft-ignored CBD alternative to navy and grey IMO. And despite what you might think can be worn with black shoes...

ive never bought anything at Rodd & GUnn before but they have 30% off online - some of the outerwear look OK in the pics?

I'd be very cautious buying anything online from them. Some of the stuff they sell is rubbish. Other bits and pieces they have are good for the price, but I would recommend going in to a store to check it out first.

Looks good HC but I can't help but think this tie would have been a better choice... IMHO of course.

A lot of their stuff is cut like a tent; I would advise trying on anything you intend to buy from R&G before you lay down your cash. Also, their prices are at least 50% above fair value IMO, so 30% off probably wouldn't be enough to tempt me.

And therein lies the problem with having 30 or so un-worn ties to choose from in the morning. #firstworldmenswearproblems.

I did think about that one though.

Must agree. I like that suit - and in fact I have the same one, in a larger size - but I think that a black, navy or maroon knit tie would look a bit less "matchy".

I really like brown suits, and I've got a couple in the wardrobe at the moment - a reasonably dark brown, small-scale glen plaid without an overcheck, and a light brown, larger scale glen plaid with a light blue overcheck.

I used to have a chocolate brown suit made from a lovely, light flannel cloth that I purchased in Tokyo some years ago. It was great but it became too small for me (or I became too large for it!).
