Haven't noticed any quality issues myself for the handgrades as a result of the Prada takeover, though consequently the quality of Cheaney has improved IMO since the Church family has taken over there.

Thankfully Prada's influence at Church's seems so far to be limited to the creation of the cheaper City line.

 

to cure my curiousity, i called them up.

 

shock horror gasp. it's the church city line that's for $550. facepalm.gif

Speaking of DJs shoes, probably the best value there were sone suede Italian Milana brogues for $68.

 

 

My shirt purchases were from the DJs store in Market St (Sydney). I looked in at their shoe section while passing. Loake Design (more directional, Goodyear-welted, India-made line) were discounted down to around $270 from the original price of around $450. I already have a pair of these - which are excellent as daily wearers - so I didn't jump.

 

Milana are crap. Avoid with extreme prejudice, although at $68 I suppose you could buy a pair to wear once to your mother-in-law's funeral.

 

This question has probably been asked, but where are the good shoe stores in Sydney? Melbourne has a few. Apart from a few CJs out the back of Herringbone, there don't seem to be any shoo porn merchants in the Emerald City.

 

Even Shanghai has a Santoni boutique...

There is Joseph's, Henry Bucks and Herringbone, just Church's and Loakes, but at nearly double the price you get from UK, online stores, like Pediwear,

So I just try the general size in store, and inquiry online, and buy all of my shoes online.

I just don't think there is enough of a market in Australia, all of my work mates wear dress shoes, but to them, Florsheim is like a top brand since it has its own boutique, and spending more than $200 on a pair of shoes is unbelievable.

Need gloves asap! My hands are freezing out of control and I still need to type/write. Where can I purchase some good clothes? (saw someone talk about a Dents sale before but I have no idea where to get them since it seems you can only get them for wholesale on the website)

post #33371 of 58046

Mr. Porter is having a sale on cashmere lined Dents, hand sewn. I just got a pair in the mail, perfect.

Not seeing the sale: http://www.mrporter.com/Shop/Designers/Dents

 

Certainly not $25 like someone mentioned earlier.

I have the perfect thing for you if you need to type without taking them off.
