Checkstar,

 

Look up Dior Entracte 2.  

 

1. Mainstream brand obviously

2. Come in variety of colours light/dark tortoiseshell  

3. You can pick them up pretty cheap too.

Fair enough.

I'm looking at this as a summer suit, but I'll add in a vest to give it a few more months of wearability (use from Sept / May, instead of just Nov / March).

So I'll probably go for a jacket that's very light (quarter or half lined), and maybe knee lined trousers... Ideally I'd get the trousers unlined, but I do worry about them being too see through.

Oh wait, I do have something in the Minnis Fresco, and in that weight. Was made way back in 2010, quarterlined.

 

Pardon the circa 2010 Blackberry photo quality.

OT

If any of the Melbourne members are ANZ Bank customers, it might be worth your while to head down to Docklands and check out the new concept branch opened there today. Very different from the usual ANZ branch, and some new tech in action.

I have no affiliation with ANZ, other than they pay my salary. smile.gif

So I am assuming that most thread participants would have been all over this?

And people actually pledged for that. As if they wanted it to be a reality. facepalm.gif

Impressed with Mr Porter (and by extension DHL) and the service so far. Order placed around 11pm on Thursday evening and has just arrived at my house now (Monday 4pm). Something to look forward to when I get home.

You and me both. Two boxes on my desk at the office this morning - one from Mr Porter and one from Wiggle. Win!

Pink Socks - did you order from the US or UK site?

UK. Think that is the default for Australia orders anyway (good as there is no VAT).

I only ask as you can also select the US site and the prices tend to be a fair bit cheaper than either the Aus or UK portals and I find the range to be slightly better also. You also get access to 50/70/80% off sale a good week before the Australian site. Downside is that postage is USD55 v GBP20.

Oh, did not know that...always seem to be directed to the UK one when I set shipping location as Australia.

To be honest, I probably need to join the No Purchase Club for a while, so knowing how to get more clothes at a cheaper prices is probably not good for me...but it might interest others.
