Sad to see this, Romp, but you've sold an excellent product and always offered excellent service, too.

I'm going to pick up another popover shirt in PS' favourite colour, pink. MB eat your heart out!

My advice is get a full length mirror. Take it into a good lighting area. Adjust so you can see well. And then take a good hard look at yourself. Then ask. Why on did earth did I buy driving shoes/loafers. Then the big question why the f#### did I ever think for a moment to buy anything in camo. Am I going to war soon. And. How will this all go with my trackies.

Then go to fiancé. Apologise. Ask forgiveness. Promise to change ways.

I wear them casually, with boat shoes, polo shirt and ribbon belt.

White trousers look very smart in the summer, actually they are rather addictive in my opinion, one does not want to lounge around sipping gin tonics in rather drab khaki.

White jeans are great on a sunny day in winter.

White trousers. Difficult territory. Rarely done well. White jeans are a better bet all round.

I like the idea of white ducks and a blazer, but its a pretty advanced move when when most Australians wouldn't own a pair of khakis.

One must admire the sheer impracticality of white flannel. But white cotton or linen is perfectly suited for the summer.

Quite keen for white chinos, when Epaulet restocks.

Wallets: I love Longchamp 'Veau Foulonné' scotch-grain leather. It's quite soft but still pretty resilient. Prices are typically crazy at Hunt Leather, less so online.

Mine is about 4" square, which is a little large, but does sit pretty flat in the pocket.

Socks: Navy is good, grey is good, mid-blue is good, and why not get a few colours or patterns if they take your fancy! I went through a phase of wearing exclusively colourful striped and even solid socks (coral orange), which I have thankfully grown out of (along with pseudo-Italian short trousers). Tasteful stripes or small-scale patterns, though, there is nothing wrong with.

Bresciani are very nice, and good quality:

The prices are decent at Mr Porter, and ship quickly and for free.

I have about half a dozen pairs of Pantharella navy OTC, which haven't held up amazingly well but were being liquidated by DJs for silly money, and another half dozen OTC pairs from Hankyu in Tokyo, by a brand called 'The Gentleman's Socks' (sadly unavailable online). They are marled solid colours: navy with a hint of purple, for example, which is a nice compromise between a solid and a pattern.

White pants: The cut obviously needs to be just so, and the cloth substantial enough that noone can see your jocks. Cotton is good; linen less so (too much wrinkling, too much dry cleaning, too transparent).

I note that Owen and James has some on sale at the moment...

hey fellas,

 

I can't imagine it to be rocket science, but I need to get measured up so I can send my measurements overseas for a MTM suit. Can anyone recommend a tailor around melb CBD that would be competent in that?

 

cheers

Where should I begin my search?

Digging up an old post - I'm a Bisonte fan :-) Hunt Leather in Balmain has them.

I'm on my second. It's about 3 years old now.
