When things like this happen, I like to remember that the Asian girls appreciation thread exists.

This is logic emanating from a member of the legal profession. I hide my face in shame.

Did I say anything about C&J?

There are literally thousands of artefacts in museums whose function is completely unknown because some fuckwit 500 years ago stole it and sold it on. I could go into depth about entire movements in archeology about this, but it is fucking lost on you.

For everyone else: I want my own authentic look, something different from the general SF groupthink. That involves RMWs.

Sorry to drag you all through 3 pages of e-waste over a pair of jeans, I appreciate your comments and perspectives.

He was wearing a well-tailored navy pinstripe suit, a sky blue shirt with French cuffs, a purple ottoman weave tie and... black RM Williams boots. To me, it seemed like a rather incongruous outfit but he's certainly not alone in dressing like that. Heck, for better or for worse, the PM is a fan of wearing RM Williams boots with business dress.

In Canberra the RM's suit look was de rigueur after Kevin was photographed with Obama. Still see it around some departments usually EL1 and above. However most APS staff in this town favour Roger David and Lowes business Black (shudder)

So, they aren't poor at all, but for the price that Boss tries to sell them at in Australia, they absolutely are not worth looking at. On sale, they try to get ~$1500 for Boss Selection suits.

 

First suit I ever bought for work was a run-of-the-mill navy, fused Hugo Boss for $1300.

 

6 months later, and armed with a little bit more experience I happened to check out the store again. They had a navy Boss Selection suit marked down to $1300. The mistakes of the young and foolish, I suppose!

Did i say anthing about Britain or Greece?

And yet there are thousands of artifacts preserved and maintained whose functions are compltely known to us. At least some of these are now in museums, not rotting away at the bottom of the ocean or getting sandblasted to oblivion. When you wish to prsent arguments, make sure you know the opposing ones too.

If you wish to expound on archeology, i am more than willing to read it. That would be better than resorting to expletives in exasperation.

After Howard, Rudd is probably our worst dressed poly. Always has that black suit, satin tie thing going on that gives him that geeky Mormon vibe.

sorry I missed you there. I ordered a pair of mto rtw myself.
I thought they were made by c&j to handgrade spec, but the inside size/model marking looks more EG.

As far as I'm aware, they all have fused jacket construction (at least the ones that you get here for around $1200) and that's just far, far too much to pay for a suit of that construction quality. They used to have a much more expensive, higher-end line called Baldessarini that was very nice, but they stopped that some years back and I don't know if they replaced it with anything.

I don't know if Liverano's RTW line is stocked anywhere in Oz, and even if it were, it's very expensive - over $4000 for a suit, I think. Isaia is available in Brisbane at Richards & Richards, at least, but I'm not sure about elsewhere in Australia. Their suits are lovely and good value for what you get.

Thanks for that guys

 

hugo boss selection suits on sale are relatively ok - I get mine for 600-700 bucks at the birkenhead outlet store, and ya some of the fabrics are nice... this is going to sound pretty dumb  - the reason I have so many hugo boss suits is because they fit me pretty much off the rack... its not an important thing to most, but I just can't be stuffed goign to the tailor, waiting a few days, going back to pick it up... most of hugo boss's cuts fit me well...  

 

Anyway, I would like to try a few different brands... Isaia is a go, hoping brooks brothers will bring some when they start up here too, will keep an eye for canalis on sale... and off to azzaro next time im in melbs

Speaking of environmental lawyers and shoes, one of my lecturers loves rocking a suit and new balance combo. No RMW in sight.

He does need to size up, it seems like.
