My new giant mofo coathangers. You call THAT a coathanger?"

These are much bigger than the pics capture - I should have put others beside them for comparison.

New Kamakura shirts arrived today. Impressed as always but the knit shirt is very cool. It's not really a pique weave but kind of is, the fabric is a bit more formal and will hold it's shape better than a pique will, has a bit of stretch also. I sized down to a medium compared to a large in the linen shirt, and I'm glad I did. If it was cut as a popover and not a full shirt it would be perfect.

Will wear this with denim mostly and under sportscoats/blazers for casual days in the office.

Coxsackie, I like that shirt! Actually, I like the whole outfit.

 

Thanks. The pocket square raised a few eyebrows, but also garnered some compliments.

I think that your outfit looked good, Cox.

Personally, I would have gone for a pocket square that had either (or both) more blue and/or brown so as to pick up the tones in the shirt and tie but, although very colourful, you were able to get away with that pocket square because the shirt and tie weren't too colourful.

I have some stuff on the way to my postal address in the states. Does anyone else need or want anything brought over/forwarded. If so send me a PM.

Just checked these guys out, looks spot on, they have a nice burgundy too, choice of buckles etc I think we have a winner.

I am a great fan of Equus but would caution you if you are not willing to wear a belt which will crease quite a bit. Bridle leather tends to wrinkle more than calf etc, which isn't a problem, but it's a decidedly less formal look.

hrmm well that's disappointing to hear.  Can't win with belts, they are either the wrong leather or have a cheap buckle or just not the style im looking for.

For all those shoe afficionados out there, you need to check this out. not sure if it has been mentioned previously on here but we no longer have to look to europe for world class quality shoes. handmade bespoke or ready to wear shoes made right here in Melbourne. Jess Wootten is the guy's name and his workshop is on Grattan Street in Prahran. he offers bespoke, made to order and ready to wear shoes and he personaly makes all his shoes onsite.

I have always baught english welted shoes, but when i found Jess i thought i would spoil myself with a pair of bespoke black toe cap oxfords. wow. the quality is as good as anything i have had from church's and having your own personal last makes these the best fitting shoe i have ever worn. now that he has my last i will be back for sure, perhaps some flash wingtip golf shoes to parade around the snadbelt.

Jess is a very approachable/personable guy. go see him.

Good to hear mate. Post some pics please. I'm actually going in to see him next weekend. I've heard some good things but haven't seen any work of his that doesn't look decidedly casual which has me a little concerned. I've heard he has branched out into more classic dress shoes lately though.

much of the stuff he has on display is reasonably contemporary but this guy is a true crafsman and makes whatever you want, from classic styling to the the outrageous.

i do have 1 pick on my computer but cant work out how to post it

If you made these yourself, then you have my admiration.

Otherwise, tell us where you got them!

Don't tell anybody, but I think I got away with the shirt.
This is probably the best outfit you have posted so far. A marked improvement from your earlier efforts. There is a certain harmony in the chaos of colours which I can't quite explain.

Then I cleaned them
