post #44536 of 48617

Hey Guys,

 

I travel to Sydney a couple times a year for work from Singapore, and was wondering how the standard of quality tailor is. Price range for a full canvas suit? Everything seems bloody expensive in Sydney..

 

My biz partner operates at carringbah, and I usually put up at Cronulla.

Don't believe there's much in the way of quality tailoring in the Shire.

I'm thinking of consolidating my shoe rotation and I thought I would throw this on here as a long shot. Any members that take an 8.5 in Loake want to shoot me a PM? I have some pairs in fairly new condition that I plan to get rid of, as I bought some C&Js not long after, and the Loakes didn't get worn much. There's a pair of Carmina Simpson 8.5s as well.

Today's post-wedding Chapel Street take-wifey-shopping fit, x-posted from WAYWRN:

 

SC, pants, shoes: Canali

Shirt: Déclic

PS: Alexander Olch

Hat: Akubra

Shades: Cébé vintage mountaineering glasses

Belt: Stefano Corsini

 

Wifey tried on a spectacular mid-length dress at Wayne Cooper. I already had my plastic out but she bailed at the last minute. Think I might just sneak back there tomorrow morning and buy it for her.

I have watched the whole thing but the wonderful original concept - in this case WWII - but the new adaptation has been almost seamless and Michael Kitchen is as excellent as ever. Also a great one for the period costumes as well.

I'd agree entirely.

The exploration of the Cold War meme of 'whatever it takes' as a way of combatting the Soviet Empire contrasted with the Brave New World they thought they were getting (same as WWI) and the suddenness of its disappearance - is a critical aspect of the post War era.

Horowitz the writer has done a top job interpreting it in this series.

Foyle's loves "the rule of law" and finds horror in seeing it compromised by the "national interest" as interpreted by the various MI5 types aka his colleagues.

I'm going to order some MTO RMWs for winter here in Melb.

Is there a consensus best/cheapest place to put in an order in Melbourne/Australia? Most of the info in the RMW thread seems to be US centric.

I was looking at http://www.bootsonline.com.au/ since they have a storefront in Burnley.

I'll be doing the same soon, the factory is only just opening up now again. I'll be going black on the Macquarie last. Port Phillip Shop looked to be the cheapest.

My info is probably very much out of date as I haven't looked at ordering RM Williams for years, but I remember a lot of positive comments about Nungar Trading Co as a good source of RM Williams boots, so it could be worth checking them out.

Second JM on Nungar Trading Co I bought a pair of CC in Roo in 2010 cheapest price and good advice on downsizing re the width.

Mm I am torn between Yearling Chestnut & Roo Chestnut. I like the Camel Chesnut too but I think I'll save those for a second pair. Veal is too delicate.

I'm not going to be pairing them with a suit, not my thing. Jeans, chinos, and informal trousers.

I prefer the colour of the yearling chestnut (http://cdn.styleforum.net/a/a0/a0d6d2c9_900x900px-LL-3ea50b96_DSC_9477.jpeg - I wouldn't shine them up this much though), but it seems like the Roo would have more waterproofing & durability. Here is a nice Roo pic (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_M0qLIyamMxQ/TNBH-BILbnI/AAAAAAAABQI/QZOPuGEs2HI/s1600/DSC02538.jpeg). There are reports that Roo creases more, though. Yearling seems to take a shine better.

Roo definitely creases more,but that's part of the appeal.

Correct but with Roo you have to go down a width I am normally a G but got an F, as its sooooooo soft but incredibly sturdy, mine are in Chestnut.
