I've seen loads of old dinner suit orphaned jackets, and Studio Italia dinner suits. I did an old Canali Milano dinner suit the other day that was OK. I've been to almost every thrift shop within a 10 km radius of the CBD...but I'll keep looking.

If it didn't you could just run her up on the footpath and put your hazard lights on as if you were broken down.

Yep, valet parking at that, though space is limited.

Not really that kind of club anymore, though members do get free NRMA roadside service. The wife and I spent the weekend there the weekend before last. Went to see Peer Gynt at the Opera House. Fine performance, and our stay at the club is always made special by the superb service and excellent food.

These days I don't have a problem with adventurous styles at all. I don't even mind this choice of cloth design so much:



The trouble is the amateurish execution. Notice all of those ugly drags around the chest and waist. This looks like it might be made out of cheap stretch cloth intended for women's clothes. It's actually really time consuming to get this sort of cloth to work for tailored clothes (you have to fuse/canvas all the panels), which likely hasn't happened here, because it is way too time consuming to do properly.

The real problem is actually confessed by the article:

" . . .designers want their labels to be talked about so it has to be out there"

There you automatically have a conflict of interest. The "designer" (who really isn't a designer in the real meaning of the term, but a stylist-cartoonist) wants the wearer to turn into an advertising board for the brand. The louder, splashier and uglier the better because there is no such thing as bad publicity. The modern fashion label wants to use you, screw you, rather than flatter you and get out of the way. Only a truly deluded gay fashion victim could think they are doing you a favour.

The author of the Age article probably knows this too but because the brands mentioned in the article have some advertising arrangement with the newspaper, he is not able to speak honestly.

Not when you work in Docklands. They drove me bananas yesterday and they are doing the same again.

Yeah. Was only two of them though. They looked a bit lonely.

Luckily we got a 10 minute show and then they pissed off.

What building are you in PG? I'm in the ANZ centre. Didn't notice the buzzing, BTW, but I was ensconced in meeting rooms all afternoon.

Yeah was at Uni when they flew over down the Yarra. Was interesting, fortunately they did not outstay their welcome.
