Did you also get your M65 from GAP, Rob?

 

EDIT:

 

Just read your post from above.

The joys of being in the UK. For LonerMatt (and any other Margaret Howell fans) - got this raincoat on eBay NWOT for $60 delivered (to my home in sunny Scotland).

HOWELL DESIGNER MAC COAT Size M / L LIGHT SAND NWOT SMART CLASSY -
http://bit.ly/1gCATZ1

Generously cut for that practical, British throw on over everything look and very well made with beautiful material (which Howell prides herself on) I am very happy with it. It will be perfect for Melbourne rainy, but warm (for me at least), days.

Just heading into Edinburgh town now to take a wonder around the city centre and see what is on offer (though will try to keep purchases to a minimum).

Nabil - sorry to miss you, I will be flying back when you are in Melbourne. Hopefully TBM, Foxy etc can keep you amused.

Huge Margaret Howell fan. Nice cop. Glad to see you're having a nice time, although, not a fan of waking up at 6AM, looking at facebook and seeing that you're at the pub!

I have come to the conclusion more than $10 for an umbrella is too much.

Sorry for the late reply. Grabbed mine for $85 from Chadstone; have forgotten if it was on sale though (it's called the 'fatigue jacket', sure they wouldn't mind if you gave them a ring).

Loled hard at handbag comment; sorry foxy smile.gif

I do believe he is suggesting you get yourself a walking stick old bean.

I'm fully mobile but I like the idea of whacking plebs out of the way with my sword stick. Of course the police took a slightly dimmer view what what (chortles)!

So in a bit of news for you Canberra guys we'll be partnering up with relatively new Canberra company Braddon Tailors on the upcoming Fashfest Fashion Shows in Canberra on the 30th April. We'll be providing ties for all of their pieces for the show and they will also be starting to have some stock in their CBD Space (appt only) in about 2 weeks. They've kicked around for a few years staying under the radar but are now getting themselves out there a bit more. I'm unsure of the ordering process etc just yet, but I do know they do full canvas suits with multiple fittings (not bespoke however). In the coming weeks I'll take some pics of their stuff next time I'm in there. Article on them -

Cloth range is great, from Ariston, Dugdale, Dormeil to house fabrics.

In other news, for all you blokes interested in the scarves, they are now online plus others that I had stayed quiet about.

Does yours have a kind of 'faded' look about it - hence being called fatigue jacket?

 

Does it look like this?

 

Or is it more faded? Because the fatigue jacket on the GAP website looks incredibly more 'faded' than this one - despite both being advertised as a fatigue jacket.

 

Same jacket but on the GAP website:

 

 

One looks sleek, the other worn.....which to trust?

A hoy hoy chaps

Any thoughts on this tweedy odd jacket from TM Lewin, and me in it?:



On a related note, does anyone have an opinion on wearing chinos with tweed? I had assumed that it was wool+wool and cotton+cotton when it came to odd jacket and trouser combinations, but thought this looked ok.

While I'm uploading photos, here's one of me and the fam at a recent wedding. Jacket is by Herringbone, toddler is by me:

The jacket looks a little short to me. May be the angle.

I also think the shoulders look a little strong - I'd like something almost completely unpadded on a casual tweed jacket, myself.

I like the combination though.
post #48014 of 57963
Nice family pic Toby.

The tweed coat looks a bit off around the belt/waist and a bit short. I'd pass on it personally. My views on cotton trousers with tweed is that generally, chinos don't look right but heavier cotton like moleskin is good.
post #48015 of 57963
Not a big fan of the jacket.

No breast pocket, angle on the hacking pocket too steep and quarters too open. Just my personal view though.
