It's the cotten-linen blend. I think it's Ariston.

Japanese lifestyle brand MUJI opens its first store in Australia

International brand MUJI will open its first Australian store at Chadstone Shopping Centre, Melbourne on 26 November 2013.

MUJI is a Japanese brand offering a wide range of household and consumer goods. Ranges include men’s, women’s and children’s apparel and accessories, furniture, homewares, skincare products, stationary, bedding and travel goods.

The MUJI store will be located on the Lower Level of the centre, near the Dandenong Road entry. The new store covers 356.35m2 and offers more than 2500 different items.

MUJI is derived from its Japanese name, ‘Mujirushi Ryohin’, which means ‘no label quality goods,’ and the brand is characterized by its design simplicity and eco friendly minimal packaging.

They had a stand at the Melbourne Menswear fashion week but I never checked it out. Thought it was a candle / incense store.

This is an M65.

What sort of monsters has #menswear created?

 

Maybe it was a mistake. I once had one shoe (not the complete pair) misappropriated. It turned up 3 days later.

 

I stand corrected if the shoes were in a locker.

They had a black leather chukka, a swept back double monk, navy simpson last loafers and other shoes I can't remember. I bought some Simpson loafers in brown calf for $270. Lovely guys in the shop. Ridiculous value. 

 

Those who need sizing help, this was very helpful: http://www.styleforum.net/t/291006/the-official-carmina-sizing-thread/0_100

If you can, check out Barton Periera and Cutler & Gross too. BP are from the makers of Oliver People's(l stand corrected) and have some incredible frames. A couple of months ago l looked at all the above and settled with a pair of CG's in the Melbourne frame. CG's are a higher price point, however the design and construction are amazing. 

 

+1 on Cutler and Gross. They just.. feel right.

The other is from a son to his father, for being the father he is to his son.

Tomaytoes, tomahtoes.

 

If we're getting technical, the navy one is: "an M-65 from Muji". 

 

Neither of you are mistaken.

Such a helpful lady.


Okay guy's quick question, I am interested in the TOJ Minimalist Double Rider. They won't do it without the bottom zips, is it a big job for the zips to get removed / can I trust a tailor with this sort of work?

Also, where to cop OTR chinos and trousers with side tabs?

Yes, or contact her from the first time via the Carmina website. The advice Gerry gave me, which works - is to keep your enquiry short and direct. They do not answer long email or difficult questions - whether this is a language issue or just they are too busy I am not sure.

So if you have multiple questions, maybe ask them one at a time and be very clear and simple. Betty usually answers very quickly that way.
