It's only Exclusive Range quality, but it's the same design as AS Pendle.

Just wondering if anyone has any quality shoe stores in Sydney that they would recommend?

Specifically, looking for things that would be say Alfred Sargent/Crockett and Jones quality and above?

Do they exist? Or do most Sydneysiders just buy online?

Thanks.

Patrick will have a selection of CJ and EGs from double monk in his store in paddo next month. pricing is very sharp

Thanks mate. I was planning to get another PJ suit in the coming months - something else to look forward to!

Christ, I haven't logged on in just over twenty four hours and I have about ten pages to read through, but when I'm keeping an eye on the thread it moves at a glacial pace!

Just for future reference would any Sydney folk be interested in a screening of I Colori di Antonio followed by drinks or dinner in the next couple of weeks?

Thanks to online shopping, I have overcame the barren landscape of quality shoes in Sydney. All except for one pair of Loake below are purchased online through UK.





 

 

 

Very nice collection of shoes. Singapore had the same problem, before Ed et Al came along; had to get my shoes online/overseas.

Jas,

 

Your ties are very, very nice. I love the hand on the silk.

I assume this means that they will be at a similar price point to Double Monk themselves?  I'm looking forward to going and trying some pairs, as well as looking at some of Patrick's work in person.

Keen for CJs in Sydney, good move Rob!

Those camo items look disgusting.

Don't forget that Herringbone have a selection of C&J shoes in their stores. The Macquarie Place store in Sydney in particular has a good selection.

They're also going to Melbourne on the 14th and 15th

Thinking of going to the Ascot Chang Tour in Melbourne....can anyone give me a quick run down of how it works? Are you just measured once and the stuff is sent to you? Do you pay up front? Is it cheaper than PJ? Worth it? Are people happy with their results?

I really like my shirts from PJ, so wondering if it is worth trying something else....

I really like my shirts from PJ, so wondering if it is worth trying something else....

 

I've only been to them in HK, and have had up to 3 fittings (in 6 days) for my first batch of shirts.

 

The second batch required 2 fittings. I didn't want darts, but had to concede to them because of my curved back (and well, tummy).

 

The last batch of shirts had to be remeasured completely because of the weight loss. I was in HK for 6 hours for this round, so there were no fittings. When the shirts were delivered, they fit very, very well. Slight issue: wanted the cuffs to be closer to my wrists, but that's nothing I can't live with.

 

I'm very very happy with my shirts from AC. I'm also very happy with my shirt from PJ.

 

Re: price. You know the deal - always depends on the fabric you choose.

 

The Thomas Mason Silverline shirts from AC are 1795 HKD. At today's exchange rate, that's approximately 255 AUD. Which is about the price of a PJ shirt, in their special Thomas Mason fabric made for PJ.

 

All in all, about the same price.

 

AC does have a cheaper line of fabric - but not sure if they'll be bringing them along to the trunk show.

 

If you're picky about bespoke v MTM, then that's something to consider. The AC process is bespoke.

 

I'm more brick-and-mortar when it comes to tailoring. I enjoy the process of discussing a new commission with my tailor (and sometimes get disapproving looks, or a firm word of guidance). I enjoy the process of building a relationship. These are reasons why I don't swing towards e-tailoring. I also like the idea of going back to a place for fittings under a trained eye. Which is why I would personally prefer a local tailor over a trunk-show tailor.

 

Except in this case, because of the relationship I already have with AC.

 

Hope this helps.

Sorry, that all looks godawful. If you want to shoot ducks, put on waders. If you want to dress for combat, join the army.

Just MHO, but I've always hated camo.

Are they normal sizing? ie can you compare to any 1880 loake lasts? 

 

edit: I should add, that I would be grateful for any sizing comparisons you have noticed among the various brands you have purchased...

 

ie I kinda float between a 9.5 and a 10 Uk. I have found a couple of the sleeker lasts to be a size 10 (ie carmina simpson and cheaney 11028), but others in 9.5 (ie loake capital,  026, cheaney loafer, church 173). Ta
