Well, to the extent of having a life too. They are open Tuesday to Saturday and I get the impression that the fill plenty of appointments. Not much use to you to be fair though...

Read an interesting book review in the Australian on the weekend while its mainly a dissection of women's fashion one phrase stood out in the review 'the Fashion-Industrial Complex' WTF?

It also featured the word Orthovestia meaning right dressing, right fitting, right looking: the pressure to wear what fits and flatters, whether literally, socially, culturally, fashionably or ideologically. Never come across it before i have to admit.

Even better than Phil Kearns slipping in Callipygous the other night in the Rugby.

Yeah, I wish the website said something about it. I fly back tonight so I'm pretty rooted...

Was that Mel Campbell's book on Fashion and Fit? - She invented the term - its a good term. ( I've got the book on reserve at libaray)

I didn't get the Oz on the weekend.

Yes it is, was a good well informed review.

I only buy the Oz on the weekend.

GF, is there still a meet on this weekend? I'll be in the city but will be putting all my stock in to the new retail place I've picked up in the morning from 9.30. It'll likely take 1-2 hours I'd say. Let me know what the plans are anyway and i'll see what I can do.

Only had one response so far but if any Canberrian wants to meet at Lonsdale St Coffee Roasters the one near Italian & Son at 11:30am that is where I will be.

Wish I lived in 'berra...

Where do you guys get your OCBDs?
post #34359 of 55186
Casual ones?

I just received a couple from Lands End which were on sale (ended up about $50 a piece landed).

Or work ones?

Jason got some very nice looking Kamakuras recently - http://kamakurashirts.com/.

Somewhere in between - for wearing with blazers, odd jackets etc.

Reckon it's worth measuring myself up and getting some brooks brothers?

Kamakura is the business. Just got 2 new ones, white (wearing today) and pale pink. Will add some more directly I think.

They're well priced too! 

 

- Did you get the tokyo or NY fit?
- What was postage?

- Which size would be the closest to your 42 shirts Jason?

post #34363 of 55186
New York slim, and I wear the same size (41/16) as I do in my own shirts. The sleeves run pretty long though, so check that also, I need 1-2 cm off them. Otherwise they fit me perfect. Great long tails on the body.

TFP - at the risk of sounding a bit snarky, you should probably have made some enquiries about an appointment before you headed down to Melbourne!

The LE OCBD (oxford cloth button down) shirts are (in my experience) very good - well made, hard-wearing, with a great collar roll. Personally, I don't think that it's worth paying the extra for Brooks Brothers OCBD shirts.

I haven't tried on any Kamakura shirts myself, but I've seen them in Japan and they looked to be durable and well-made, with a great collar roll. Jason's Kamakura shirts look very nice, too.
