I have no idea what the quality is like, but i think they have trial shirts at $20 (not sure if that includes shipping). Cant hurt to try it out. Supposedly the non trial fabrics are much higher quality and are like $50-60.

Most of the time when i try to buy off the rack shirts, i end up paying $30 after sale anyway. Most of the fabrics i ended up with werent very good quality either (rather thick and uncomfortable). I did manage to get a few shirts that were amazing though.

Been using fabric softener to try and soften the tough shirts, but it seems to do nothing (seriously are fabric softeners just a scam?)

Here's some info that night help:

I can guarantee you that the LSO members will be paying little to no attention to Gergiev's various twitches, flutters, and bizarre arm flails that bear no relation whatsoever to musical flow. They're too professional to let the antics of a performing clown compromise their performance.

 

I suspect that in rehearsal he's probably all business, giving clear instructions on tempo and interpretation. Come performance day, the musos are probably better off not watching him at all.


I'm sure his political opinions have no bearing on whether he's a good conductor or not; it, however, does have a bearing on whom I choose to see. There are plenty of musicians out there of equal capability who do not openly back an oligarch threatening world order to secure his own power. (too bad none of them bother to come to Australia)

I daresay that Gergiev is performing more for the audience than the musicians for that matter. It's more fun that way, right?

It's a serious fashion crime in Sydney the amount of guys wearing suits with RMW boots! 

Was it my imagination, or did our PM wear unpolished RMWs to meet the Leader of the Free World?

Hey guys,

 

Just wondering if anyone could give me an idea as to the sizing of this belt on Uniqlo?

 

http://www.uniqlo.com/au/store/men-stitch-belt-0790210001.html#colorSelect

 

Why does it say no control?

 

The length on the sizing guide says it is 107cm long, which seems far too large for me (wear a 32 pant)

 

Cheers

I think their website has a bug, you should be able to select the size there. Email them about it.

I would look at the fabrics that cost 60-100. Some of the others can come out paper thin -- make sure you look at 2 ply only for Modern Tailor.

 

I've had 5 shirts made by them and I've got a couple of friends who have also used them. Overall it's decent quality, but some of the construction could be slightly sturdier.

I usually wear with a knit tie and a blue (bit lighter than navy, but not as light as air force blue) jacket in a herringbone weave with waist patch pockets. I've also worn them with a beige jacket, a light grey, herringbone weave jacket and a darker brown jacket in a flecked Donegal tweed weave.

Well OK then! Inspired by Journeyman:

Looking good, Mr Nelson! 

 

 

I saw that yesterday afternoon. Profoundly depressing. Ironic but not unexpected that the article mentions "quality shoes" but, of course, most of the shoes in the accompanying photos are poor quality, corrected grain shoes, with the exception of the Allen-Edmonds. 

 

I'd heard of Jeffery West before but had never seen his shoes - and I wish that I still hadn't.

I agree I just could not bring myself to comment on the article. Jeffrey West simply proves that money does not buy style.

Good to know that BMT has AE will have to check their range out when in Melbourne later this year along with DM.

Whats wrong with the jeffrey wests pictured in the article? The brown brogue is uh kind of okay, although i think the contrasting brown looks weird. The rest seem to be designed to be flashy on purpose, with bright colors and eye catching designs, which is the entire point of the article (that they are proving to be popular). The article isnt talking about the usual quality shoe brands.
