I have started using the gel, but does not seem as effective as the hard soap...has it been replaced or am I not looking hard enough.

At my supermarket you can get the soap (which is like a block of soap) the deodorant type stick and the gel with the brushy type bit.

I hope the stick hasn't been replaced because that was excellent.

I must tell the laundress she will be thrilled.

Another product which is good for stains is Orange Power prewash stain remover, very effectice. The only issue I have with Sard is that it can leach the colour out of fabrics, had a polo last year that is now a gardening shirt.

When I used to chef I used to soak my jackets overnight in Napi San to get rid of stains also very effective for white shirts.

I've had good luck getting stains out with Coles brand dishwashing liquid...

Can i grab your opinion on the fit - below is the 36R

I also got the 38R, the 36R feels a lot more fitted but still comfortable.

this is my first proper jacket not apart of a suit and would love to have it as a staple piece in my wardrobe.

thanks!

^ That ones a bit tight in the chest and you could do with the extra length of the size up I'd say.

Re the tie swap box, I would do it a little different to the other one in that I don't think they should be swapped in and out for a number of reasons. Firstly, they'll all end up back with me at some stage and I don't want the headache of either trying to track down the owners to return them and I think if you have to swap in ties yourself, most people won't put their best ties in for various reasons which I don't want to compromise on.

Anyway I will think about it a bit more over the next week or so, it'd be a seasonal box also so we don't end up with wool ties in summer for example. Thanks for the interest so far.

Cufflinks are my father's, in opal and 9K brushed gold, purchased from Proud's most likely in the 1960s.

Sorry dude patterns clash too much for me; I think it would be a lot better with a boring shirt (solids). Swapping the PS out to compliment the boring shirt would also be a good idea.

But I remember an older fit you posted and this is a lot better!

Thats what i'm thinking too, id prefer go up size and tailor it in at the waist and sleeves.

Thanks Jase as usual

I just assumed everyone uses Napi San on cotton - sheets, undies, t shirts, shirts, towels, ...... every 3 weeks or so - great stuff. You can use it to make a paste for spot stains too.

The jacket is lovely, and shoes are nice too. All it needs is plain grey trousers (lose the checks), a plain blue shirt (checks in the way again) and a darker tie, maybe a brown (or brown knit if you have one). The jacket stands out enough that you don't need any other patterns for it to compete with, everything else should just complement. I'll bite my tongue on the man beads.

No? The other problem with it is that it has a corrosive effect on a washing machine tub. Most detergents give a good clean I've been using ecco store for the last couple of years, does a good job and fragrance free.

No I agree with you 100%. I realise you were only making (a very, very good) point, but just wanted to confirm that actually representing Australians' interests (apart from Kevin 747) was never part of his brief with the devil dodgers...

Yeah it's not a big deal, especially as the term "spot cleaning" implies you won't have much of the garment's overall surface area vulnerable to rain if you deal with stains in this way. And yes you can use the same fabric protector you use on suede shoes to top up the coating, though personally I havent bothered too much. If you spot out a big stain say on the shoulders where you get a lot of rain, maybe it's more of an issue to reapply the protectant, but generally it's a non issue unless you're paid to stand in the rain.
