Australian Members - Page 3005post #45061 of 679462/4/14 at 12:50pmpost #45062 of 679462/4/14 at 2:38pmManaged to duck into the R&B half year warehouse sale, or as I like to think of it, the half year pocket square clearance. Standard clearance pricing. As usual, not all that much of interest for those of us with discerning SF tastes other than the occasional pocket square ($9) and knit tie ($35). Didn’t even bother looking at the suits, shirts and knits. Managed to pick up pick up the only knit tie that I came across, along with two new pocket squares and a silk scarf for the significant other.
I think that from over the last few years of R&B sales, my pocket square collection is now 90 percent R&B!post #45063 of 679462/4/14 at 2:42pmpost #45064 of 679462/4/14 at 3:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by Foxhound
JM has beat me to it - but American Giant is the real deal. The shipping cost to Australia makes it slightly less value for money, which is why I'm probably going to end up getting one from Nike's Tech Pack.post #45065 of 679462/4/14 at 3:26pmpost #45066 of 679462/4/14 at 3:27pmpost #45067 of 679462/4/14 at 3:35pmQuote:Originally Posted by Geoffrey Firmin
try this http://oliverspencer.co.uk/mens-designer-clothing
I didn't really see anything on there that was similar?
Concerning American Giant, I've read numerous times that sizing sucks, and I'm really not a fan of the huge ribbing.post #45068 of 679462/4/14 at 3:37pmQuote:Originally Posted by CHECKstar

Was going to check that out tomorrow perhaps, with the same expectation of knit ties and pocket squares. The only R&B stuff I own! They'll likely all be gone by then though, with the SF vultures descending upon itpost #45069 of 679462/4/14 at 3:54pmpost #45070 of 679462/4/14 at 3:57pmQuote:Quote:
It's even a bit dicey for work wear. If you have a job where suits are the norm, IMO there's nothing inherently wrong with contrast cuffs/collar, provided you have the personality to pull them off. It's a 'hard' look but as long as you bear that in mind... and they should be worn with suits only IMO, not slacks and odd jacket.
As for wearing them 'out on the town'....post #45071 of 679462/4/14 at 4:14pmpost #45072 of 679462/4/14 at 4:16pmQuote:Originally Posted by nabilmust
Where are all the big timers at?
I can just imagine trying to convince my wife of the wisdom of that purchase:
Wife: "You paid $25 000 for a jacket?!?!?!"
Me: "But, honey, I *saved* $35 000 as it originally cost $60 000."post #45073 of 679462/4/14 at 4:24pmpost #45074 of 679462/4/14 at 4:30pmpost #45075 of 679462/4/14 at 4:32pmQuote:Originally Posted by Gerry Nelson
According to the email I got, the sale starts tomorrow. Are you referring to some sort of pre-sale?

Oh no - bad timing on their part, as Coxsackie is overseas!
