One sock (size x-large) was sufficient for the purpose I had in mind.

Got my Johnston's of Elgin cashmere socks on today (which I picked up last time I was back in the homeland). They are in a beautiful light heather grey and wearing them is like walking on clouds.

Full priced socks from HB I am now officially 'baller' and 'steezy': a steezball.

 

Yeah, I did. I wanted to show them some support for the work they've done. I would never have done it before they got the new stock in.

 

FWIW, fxh has always held you in the highest regard and often refers to you as a steezball - at least I think that's what he said.

After my shoe debacle which involved me selling my entire shoe collection, I purchased a pair of Churches double monks for full price from HB. Strangely enough it was a only $150 more than purchasing online. Can I too join the #steezeball club, PoP?

If they're looking at getting younger people in, say people my age, they're going to have to become Incu.

You already inhabit the fortress of steez. Just make sure to never buckle your DMs though in case you're mistaken for normal.

Looks like winter will finally arrive in Sydney this week.

Thoughts on this suit in grey flannel?

It's all relative.

Though the BOM has also bombed out again. At 2pm I think it will be a stretch to get to 20 here today... not to mention windchill/apparent temp.

Agreed Nabil. I picked up two pairs from Herringbone yesterday. At 50% off originally plus a further 25% off they came to around $8 - a bargain.

Don't like it.

 

I might sound like an old fuddy-duddy but, to me, a grey flannel suit is pretty much a winter staple (even though we don't get much winter here in Brisbane) and it is meant to be a reasonably formal suit for business.

 

As a result, the addition of the patch pockets and the self-fabric elbow patches on the jacket make it too casual for business wear and thus I find the appearance of the jacket to be jarring - it looks like it's trying to be a casual, odd jacket but it's not, as it's in a business fabric.

I have to agree with JM. 'Tis a mongrel if ever I saw one. I usually like patch pockets but this suit would be better served with the traditional flap pockets, and the silly self-patch elbows are just, well, silly.

I tried that coat on yesterday, its actually very nice. I like patch pockets on flannel in general but I'd take the elbow patches off, which I've done on a few Herringbone coats over the years. Main thing I dont like are the flaps on the rear of the trousers.
