Yep they have been in "mainstream" retailers for a fair while now. Seen a fair few pairs on styletread.com.au (random brands). Haven't seen them 'on the street' much in Brisbane though.

I'm also in Sydney next week for a few days. Staying in the CBD and might not see much more than the hotel and the office.

Thanks!

The Tropicana in Victoria St fresh fruit salad with cheese croissant and strong flat white does it for me plenty of options and child friendly. What time you thinking of getting there PM if you want to catch up.

On PoP's advice went to Chiswick in Woollahra for dinner tonight OMG one of the best meals I have had in years ( outside of my kitchen that is:) ) had a couple of Sex in Garden Cocktails and think my socks have been rocked , well the drake NZ PN helped.

Ps doesn't anybody in Sydney tuck their shirts in after 26c?

Thanks GF. Will have some time Sunday afternoon I think while the girls see the Lion King, I'll PM if there's a chance of grabbing a coffee somewhere.

They're common in Japan but I haven't tried to bring one back with me as I'm sure that Customs wouldn't let it in.

 

 

I got mine from here: http://www.bluebanyan.com.au/buckwheat-pillows

At the time they only had one size, now you have choices.

I want a striped suit just like this (maybe less wide lapels) but will most likely get more conservative stripes first :)

We still use PJohnson shirt workshop .. I can't look past the workmanship. I've just bought a range of fabrics for Suit Shop to let me offer a lower price.

Three and bit weeks off and close to a thousand posts missed. Fuck it. Hope you all had a wonderful xmas / NY. I managed to get a leave pass for NYE and spent it with a gang of mates from nigh on twenty years ago. We camped on Cockatoo island in Sydney harbour. Fireworks were proper awesome, but we were all tucked up by 1am icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thinking I might look into PJ or Suit Shop for a pair of trousers for summer...have looked around and cannot find what I want (partly due to the fit I am after). I wonder what the cost would be....

Something like these (in a light weight fabric with the high rise) - Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
On pinstripe, I like this from Eidos Napoli (their collection is def. one of the most interesting things in menswear at the moment, in this reader's opinion).

Agreed about Eidos!!

 

The creative director (I think) posts in the WIWT thread and always kills it as well!
