I have only ever bought RL or RPL on sale at DJ's. They used to do good linen shirts and the Andrews pant's cut was good. But its not something I would bother paying full price for.

Case in point, cargo shorts $169 sale price $70. Red linen Blake shirt $275 eventual sale mark down $60.

RL is my fav brand. Love picking up black label suits at 70% off!

There has been some discussion in the past in this thread about a great charity called Wear for Success, which assists disadvantaged men in presenting themselves appropriately in seeking and holding down a job.

As some of you already know I'm on the committee of a sub-group of WFS called the Wear for Success Expert Network, which is a business networking group set up in support of the WFS charity and aimed at middle to senior level executives with an interest in dressing well(ish).

It's a great cause and a way to do some networking whilst at the same time making a real difference for disadvantaged people.

The Expert Network holds regular events for members roughly quarterly, and annual membership is a paltry $50.

The invitation for the next event on August 15 is attached to this post, it would be wonderful if as many of the Melbourne crowd as possible would come along and join up. I know a few members including Gerry Nelson, Appolyon and fxh have expressed interest already, so let's see how many of the Melbourne crew we can get there!

Aside from the networking, free drinks etc, there is usually an 'expert' aspect to each event. Last time for example we got to sample a range of wonderful Pinot Noirs and get some great discounts on purchases. Double Monk will most likely be involved in a future event this year.

There will usually also be a raffle and at the coming event we have $800 worth of prizes up for grabs, including a couple of 7-fold ties from our own Henry Carter (many, many thanks Jas).

Memberships can be paid at the event (eftpos will be available) or if you prefer there are details in the attached newsletter about how to join beforehand.

Please forward the invite and the August newsletter to any non-SF contacts you might have whom you believe could be interested.

Any and all support is most greatly appreciated by both WFS and myself, thanks guys!

Anyone other Australian Thread members heading along to this tomorrow night? I am going and am interested to know which friendly faces to look out for. Think Checkstar might be going and lennier mentions a few others above (though I know Nice Guy Gerry is providing shoe shine advice in Burma at the moment so will not be there).

fxh, is this is the kind of special event one puts socks on for?...

I think Appolyon and fxh are both attempting to be there.

Anyone else who would like to go just a reminder that you need to rsvp to the emaiil in the invitation so that they have numbers for catering.

Hope to see you there!

I won't be ale to make it of course being 800km north but I have donated 2 x 7 folds worth $100 each that will be included in the raffle prizes for the night so at the very least you can come along, meet up with some of the other members and have a chance at winning a nice tie for the price of a raffle ticket.

Anyone know anything about Azzaro's jeans?

 

I noticed they're having a 2 for 30 on Saturday.

And a membership, but still a bargain!

Luciano told me once that they"re made by Borrelli, if that helps. I've glanced at them a few times, and they always seemed a bit fashion-forward for an old bloke.

PSA of a sort, for Brisbane guys. This lady is on eBay selling five different near full bottles of Serge Lutens for $50 (at present). Pickup only, so you might be able to grab a bargain.

Nah mate, they're firsts. Or they're the most mint pair of seconds I have ever seen!

 

Head over to the Herring Shoes appreciation thread for a full explanation. Something about someone not being able to get the shoes they requested and therefore they were given a 20% discount code for full priced shoes.

Would anyone in Brisbane be willing to please buy the Serge Lutens Chergui on my behalf by proxy? Happy to pay a fee, of course.

Speaking of musicians with original ideas...

 

Anyone else listening to Wagner's "Siegfried" on ABC-FM tonight? Live performance at this year's Proms. Barenboim conducting.

Depending on where abouts she is I may be able to help but realistically you'd be better off just paying her $15 to wrap it in bubble wrap and throw it in an express post satchel...yes in theory they shouldn't be sent EP but never seen any issues with it, change express post to regular satchel and problem solved.  Fragrances rule!
