The dungeon "recreation room" in my house does not have great lighting on account of the lack of windows.

 

Sydney will be at office/nearby CBD homes and Melbourne similar however Matt will have some space in the new P.Johnson showroom when they move later this month. Otherwise ill get him to take a torch and a paddle lol8[1].gif

Considering dropping some dough on the TM Lewin tailored fit shirts.

 

How 'tailored' are they (I dont want them showing off love handles :( )? Also, what is the fabric of 'easy iron' shirting like?

 

I can't decide what TBM wants :(

 

CBD = navy, dark grey or mid grey 120 super marino - normal notch lapels, double vents, horn buttons in black with tortoise shell fleck.

 

Funzies = Light grey flannel w/white shepards check or navy cotton - both deconstructed, with wide or normal lapels and corozo buttons.

To go with your cam shoelaces we talk about this morning. Matching shoe laces and suit lacing is next level stuff.

American Tailors in Melbourne has C&J Islay wingtip boots for AUD595. Built on the 325 365 last, these are dark brown scotchgrain derby wingtip boots with speed hooks and a Dainite sole and are very difficult to get generally. Right now, they have a pile of sizes there but stock is, of course, limited. I understand they had to wait quite a while to get them.

 

If you don't want to or can't get the Lindrick, this might be an alternative.

 

More info about the boot at http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/product/crockett-jones-islay

Peddler...pusher...do not listen to him, spreading his shoe addiction around (unless of course you want these boots, then hell, go for it and thank him for the heads up).

Hi Gerry, does the Lindrick have the same 325 C & J last?

 

And how about more photos of your Lindricks?  I like to see how it is being worn in.

Couple questions for anyone in Melbourne:

1. Where's the best place to find cheap raw denim in Melbourne? Looking for $120 ish, took a search around the forum, but finding stuff from a few years back, if anyone knows anything a bit more current it'll be appreciated.

2. Does anyone know of any jobs or anyone hiring at the moment? Canadian on a working holiday visa finding a tough time finding a job that isn't hospitality (no training at all). Have tons of experience in retail, customer service, data entry, some admin stuff, etc. A lot of the recruitment agencies that deal with that kind of work seem apprehensive about hiring travelers. Can PM resume, discuss further if there is anything out there.

Loving the city so far, thanks for any help guys,

Ryan

The Lindrick is also built on the 325 last.

edit: Sorry, the Islay is built on the 365 last

I'll put some more photos up soon.

That's what James Bond wore in Skyfall, I hear it's quite in demand on ebay and such, so go for it if you want it!

There was one advert saying the Crockett & Jones Wholecut Alex was specially made for the James Bond film...

Everytime you call they always seem to run out of stock....

Anyone had experience with Ranocurt's loafers? Particularyly interested in the 'beefroll' variety in something that ages well; they have a few cxl varieties and am currently looking at them as cxl usually ages beautifully. Yeah I know it's not summer again; god damn I love winter but caught sight of them and they look great all though a bit dear.
