Unfortunately their online presence sucks (they currently don't have a single suit on there) and their pricing isn't quite as competitive as MJ Bale. 

 

In todays day and age I find it quite frustrating that their website is pretty useless but I guess they if it had much more on there they would have more emails to answer, more returns and exchanges to deal with etc.  Maybe even stocking is an issue, I know MJ Bale has had a few hiccups with stocking and the online store, even now im pretty sure they just allocate a handful of x y z every cpl of months and thats it rather than keeping it actively up to date.

Anyone get on DJ sale yet? Some pretty good deals there now that they're additional 25% off sale stock.

Melb CBD store I would have jumped on 2 suits if they're my size.

MJ bale s100 2b charcoal cbd-as-you-can-get suit $250. Size 38. I was so tempted to jump on it as its a slim 38 and im 36.

The other big one is a grey SB Paul smith luxury suit. Size 40. $1700~ down to $375.

I don't like their shoulders, but the body of their jackets fits me to a 'T'. A great slim fit and much better than I expected.

Yes, they have a very english silhouette (surprise surprise) but they're decently made, half canvassed and on sale can be extremely good value (online, probably less so via Myer or their Collins St store). R&B are very similar for a lot more money and MJ Bale are a completely different silhouette and a cut above in quality and cost. I had a couple of Lewin suits but very structured shoulders neither appeal nor suit my build so I no longer wear them.

Will keep an eye out for the PS suit!

I received the new silver grenadine from Henry Carter today, and I am very happy with the quality and attention to detail in making.  It has a nice drape without being too thick (which for me kills the flow of the tie).  It also has a much more formal look than the large weave and there is no chance of mistaking it for a knit, and it also feels more snag proof than the larger weave.  It is thinner around the neck than the blade, so it should tie a thicker knot well if required.

 

I saw some Borrelli and Stefano Ricci ties the other day, and these loose little to them, with obviously a much lower expenditure.

 

Make me a burgundy and gold/yellow stripe next Jason!

Gents, I'm interested in the 1880 Rothschild, but can't seem to find a birds-eye view of the shoe...!!

I'd like the shoe to be "pointy-ish",  I'm not really a fan of snub-nosed type shoes... But nothing elf-like of course...

So my question is if someone owns one, care to share some pics? Please.. smile.gif

 

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Alternatively, I'm thinking a brogue like the 1880 Haig, but not sure if it would be considered "loud" for work -

My industry is Insurance - Marketing & Development) Generally out and about most days of the week... Your tips are appreciated!

I would go the Strand in Loake if you wanted a semi brogue at that price. Pediwear is having a summer sale, the Strand is discounted if you are on their email list. For a plain cap toe the Aldwych is also part of the sale.

Yes, its an awesome deal, free shoe trees and silk tie too!. 

 

Indeed, I saw the Strand, but my concern is that my foot is quite narrow, and I re-measured, so I'm much closer to an E fitting, hence the Rothschild...

I'm sure I could wear thicker socks... I just don't want to miss out on their sale so a gamble might be required... Decisions...

The sale notification I got didn't include shoe trees or a tie, it was 35 quid off a selection of shoes from Loake, Barker and Trickers I think.

Are you near a DJs? You could go in and try a few on and check widths.

Rothchild looks pretty nice on the pediwear site. Brogues in black I wouldn't call too loud... in tan on the other hand...
post #34136 of 57930

Cheers, I work in Sydney CBD, so I might check them out tomorrow if I can find a Loake in my size.

 

Yes, love the Rothschild... But then again, I like the Haig/Strand. Might buy both?!! Too many excuses to burn my tax refund..

 

Pediwear also sell Saphir, but I'm a Kiwi fan, however I'd like to give the French stuff a go.

DJ don't have any 1880s, you need to try Joseph's, or Henry Bucks.
post #34138 of 57930

Joseph's on Strand Arcade? They never seemed very helpful... Been there a few times.

 

Henry Bucks is on O'Connell St, I think I'm headed that way tomorrow.. Thanks for the tip, I've never been! shog[1].gif

post #34139 of 57930
I would suggest emailing Pediwear as well. As for Henry Bucks, I only saw some CJ and Loake 1880s, but only on the Capital F last, so you can try them on and to see if they are too wide.

Thanks and glad you are happy with it. Will have a look for you for the burgundy stripe when choosing next seasons stuff. Talking about Borelli & SF, my tie makers in Naples while being not huge company, also make for the likes of Brioni and Ralph Lauren, which gives you an idea of the sort of quality they stand up against.
