Depends on the market they're looking for. I agree the info should be easier to get but to be fair they're just starting out and seem to have quite a bit of business already just from word of mouth.

I gotta say when you are trying to decide where to spend your money I reckon the amount of recommendations and goodwill for Suitshop on here is a lot more encouraging than a schmancy website.

 

I only just go measured so can't personally confirm the quality of their work yet. My point is just if you're going to be serious enough about your suit that you spend time signing up for SF and researching your options online, then don't be lazy about popping of a quick email.

I agree - the website is shit, not pretending its great - we have been running SuitShop for about a month now mainly via word of mouth so we can trial the business model and work out the best way to operate. It was designed to be temporary and its on a list of many things that we are addressing in coming months. Im happy to answer any questions via PM or email.

Thinking of grabbing another pair of chukkas...can't be stuffed searching for some Florsheim gunboats as I have tiny feet.
P.S.
Gerry might I ask which fit of Bill's Khakis you wear and what you think of the rise? Is it as high as your wool trousers?
Um about the same I reckon, perhaps a touch wider than the olfe last but it's kind of hard to tell with the different feel of boots vs oxfords. They are very comfy! Length about the same.

Listening to ABC new this morning the agreed price on the dollar is quoted at 80c US (fuck mumble fuck)

Can somebody explain how shorting works as they stated that George Soros has his eyes on making a killing by shorting the dollar. The fucker.

Open an CFD account with any brokers. I use CMC markets. Call 1300 303 888 and they can open account over the phone. Then deposit some funds. $500 minimum. But I would recommend at least $2500. $5k -$10k would be better.
Ok when you trade currency you will get 200:1 margin. You can even go up to 400:1 margin. Meaning if you buy 100K USD you will need $1000 margin in your CFD account. So when you want to trade AUD/USD pair and you want to short the AUD then you will buy USD (meaning you are selling AUD to buy USD) . Now a $100k position for every cent AUD will loose you will make $1k profit.
I can go on and on all day but will make little or no sense to you. Open a CFD account first and then everything will make more sense. I have been trading for 3/4 years now. Its challenging but there are plenty of money to be made .

I have had a two piece, three piece, a sports jacket and a couple of odd pairs of slacks from him as well as a few shirts. All fully bespoke. Modern yet classic, bla bla bla. Incredible selection of fabric, gives good advice (e.g. don't fuck around with super light weights, they drape like shit and wear out fast). Expect things to take around a month to 6 weeks.

I heard he's closing down his Paddington shop which is a great shame as it was a lovely place to hide when the wife was shopping/whatever. But he will still keep the bespoke operation going.

Katalyst, if you're looking for a bespoke tailor and you're willing to spend top dollar, go to Bespoke Bijan on O'Connell Street, Sydney. he is savile row trained. I'm confident you won't be disappointed.

In what circumstances are you liable for the whole amount?

 

i.e. in the example above, you only have $1k in your account.  What happens if the dollar goes up 10c?

Thanks - no the one in the middle are my Herring Knightsbridge (loake 1880) - they are responsible for my shoe obsession now. the ones on the right are the herring hampstead (loake 1880) and on the left as mr brownman said is the Meermin's. Great shoe for the money (better than Loake but not as good as AE quality IMO). Im going to take them to get Topy'ed today nearly had a stack down some stairs at a house party on saturday night.

Btw anyone keen for a Sydney meetup - Have some casual beers after work on the Thursday 6th June - sydney CBD? Bavarian Beer Cafe??

shorting = borrowing someone else's equity/dollars/asset at current prices, selling it and then hoping the value decreases so you can buy back an equal number of equity/dollars/assets at a lower price and returning it and paying a borrow fee. 

 

e.g. I buy 100 units of AUD at $1.05 = $105

 

i sell this and then hope the dollar drops

 

I buy back the 100 units of dollars at 95cents = $95 

 

I return the 100 units to the person i borrow from plus pay him a fee for borrow (perhaps 5% p.a.)

 

and therefore ive made $10 ($105 minus $95)

aah romp - shorting/ going long is soo easy to make money - especially on currency where no one is doing it.

Leveraging is even better - only dumb people don't do it.

Lets look at it

I short aud - lets say I buy 100 aud @ 95c todays price

I sell this and hope dollar drops

Ooops it goes up to $1.05c - I have to meet the sale or margin call.

oops - don't tell the wife...

I buy back the 100 units of dollars at 105 cents = $105

I return the 100 units to the person I borrow from plus pay him a fee for borrow (perhaps 5% p.a.)

and therefore I've made - $10 (- $105 + $95) plus 5% fee = lets say $12 for every 100 units

Lets say I've leveraged out (I leverage because I'm a smart dude not like other idiots who don't leverage) to 1,000 units = 1,000 X $12 = $12,000 payable immediately.

Or if I was really smart I would have leveraged out to 5,000 units - so I'm up for $60,000. Now.

Ring bank re line of credit on house.

Ooops sorry- ring estate agent re selling house.

Wonder if those suits and shoes would bring much on ebay.

Think of way to approach wife with news.

Look up caravans for rent on site at Cranbourne
