Any thoughts on Rhodes & Beckett and Calibre?
I have purchased a few shirts from R & B, although the quality is good, i do find them a touch overpriced for what they are. I do find that Calibre has some nice stuff, but very overpriced. I could buy from Burberry for those prices.
To be fair dinkum, I have a few calibre shirts for lounging around - although like you said - overpriced. I had a calibre suit once as well, the cut is quite aggressive; for blokes that do a lot bench presses but no squats. I quite liked it before I learned more about classic menswear, the quality was rubbish and the fabric fell apart, which was in some ways lucky because I moved on to better stuff.
Not sure about burberry suits, from the male models they appear to be targeting lanky hipsters wanting an office job... I find myself drifting away from large brands when it comes to suiting, it's probably true what they say about becoming more conservative as you grow older
