post #42916 of 52581

Congrats on the weightloss DB!

Checked out MUJI today, quite a few summer basics: OCBD's, Linen, shorts, polos. What I checeked out seemed to be rather good I picked up a polo for myself and the cotton seems rather 'thick' and 'sturdy' (as polos come), the collar especially is quite sturdy. The polos  came in simple colours (white, navy etc.) as did the shirts (blue, white; also a green I liked a lot). There was also a 90 dollar linen SC/Blazer, seemed nice though didn't get a good look at it, probably somewhat similar to the UNIQLO one SF seems to like a lot.

EDIT:

RIP Mandela

I despise cricket....sorry DB, TBM etc. :fence:

MUJI is a lot smaller than what I imagined it would be. They had more home wares rather than mens/womenswear.

Muji in Melbs?

 

Awesome! Will visit.

How'd you go with the fragrances Jim?

 

@dusty, grats on the weight loss.  having gone through a similar things this year I would say you can get away with sizing pants 2 sizes down anymore than that and you end up with side effects.

Happy with it spandexter? looks good.   Tie is nice too.

 

Edit: hadn't seen the updated suitshop website looks great.  I couldn't pull off the beige linen suit from the blog but it looks damn sharp.  Hope you guys make it up to brissy again @ some point early next year.

Yes, enough to try another suit that's a little less conservative. Next time I might lower the buttoning point slightly and widen the leg opening so it sits on my shoe a little better. Other than those two items I'm quite happy with the outcome.

Linen!

I quite like that combination, and the Linen seems to lend itself to an Australian summer

I used to wonder why Yankee Rep ties ran towards the heart, according to something I read once it was simply to distinguish them from the British and avoid the issue over colours and their association.

And if you could please take Jimmy Hoffa for a drive and deposit him in an unmarked grave that would be very good.

Thanks Mr Firmin!

I have Accumulated quite of few rep ties over the yrs from Herringbone, Gant and vintage YSL, interested to see what I am representing...

From what you told me, I will probably get a hand shake off a opus dei member because of my affiliate tie...

As for Jimmy Hoffa he's more slippery than Jimmy Laughlin

Italian stripes like Jason's are good too - unlike the British they vary the patterns as well. 

 

I like a nonchalant repp tie - I think their schoolboy/military connotations give off a young/keen to learn impression.

Sure, apologies though as the first shot isn't as clear as it could be.
