PS stopped by the MJB popup store in Martin Pl. For those thinking about it, don't bother.

 

That's it exactly - from mid grey to pink windowpane without a chalkstripe in between. 

 

(PoP - pinstripe suit acquired).

Fact of life: doesn't matter how well you dress, how good you look, how smart you are, you ain't shit if you don't have a loud bark.

In Canada, at that Whistler skiing thingy on honeymoon.

What is the forum zeitgeist on John Varvatos? Tried on a really nice unstructured JV jacket designed with a slightly unusual, vaguely shooting/hunting theme, but not really. Fabric is grey pinstripe,  wool/polyester 50/50. Fits me well. Construction quality looks mid-range. Price around A$600 which appears to be the average RRP for this brand. However I don't think I've ever seen this brand in Oz.

I'm somewhat tempted.

If you have any Q's about six to see our do, restaurants etc in Vancouver, or local craft beer (on which I'm well educated) feel free to PM. Enjoy your honeymoon and congrats on the wedding!

 

Thanks ITG. Unfortunately we won't be spending any time in Vancouver.

 

John Varvatos is a USA designer. His brand sells mid-priced men's clothing and apparel, manufactured in China and other Asian countries. I've never seen the brand in Australian stores, but it pops up in online resellers like Farfetch.

 

The jacket I have my eye on is quite a nice design, but at $600 I'll probably give it a skip this time. Very nice Italian jackets can be had for just a tiny bit more money.

That would probably be my decision in the same situation. A local custom jacket, for me, could also be only a bit more. Enjoy Whistler. Don't forget to have a beaver tail,or to go to the brewhouse, both in the village.

Good idea. An odd jacket in a grey pinstripe fabric that's half polyester doesn't sound like such a great deal, anyway!

John Varvatos is like a US version of Arthur Galan. Or should I say AG is an Australian version of JV. Fashion stuff, generally made to last a season or two, with the very, very occasional classic piece. A poly mix pinstripe odd jacket doesn't sound like one of them.

Not that there isn't a market for his stuff but it's not going to appeal to the average SF persona.

@Foxhound What happened with the bubbly tie? Did you get it fixed?

If you google images of John, you'll see why you might not want to be dressed by him.

 

The Varvatos-Gallan parallel is strikingly accurate. Just a quick peruse of George Calombaris' wardrobe on the previous 2 seasons of Master Chef (where George was outfitted by Gallan) shows the similarities:

Oh shit, was meaning to post, sorry been pretty out of it with the Pain Killers. My mum is fantastic, she opened up the tie very carefully, what had happened. The lining had folded over it self at that section, doubling up. I should have taken a photo. Mum undid the whole tie and fixed it up. It's good as new. It should be noted my mum has no training in tailoring or anything like that.

 

 

On another note, I just ordered another TOJ. Buy my stuff on eBay so I can eat please.

post #45044 of 57883
Good to hear. I'd take those Redwings off your hands if they weren't a few sizes too small.
post #45045 of 57883

What did TOJ did you order this time mate?

 

Yes..someone buy my Cruze so I can resume SF purchases :p
