By the way, for those following along (esp. those at Suitably Connected) - settlement went smoothly and I am now a proud house owner.

Well done on saving while also frequenting SF. That's the real achievement....

Hahahaha....er, yes, might have been in a place a few years ago if it wasn't for SF. Maybe today will be my last day of posting (better close my Tumblr and Instagram too).

Note - for those wanting to assist with the mortgage a few things, including C&J's, Boglioli and Gant by Michael Bastian will be going eBay, as well as some women's stuff (I just don't wear it any more!). Also donations welcome....

Yes, I think that Ethan mentioned that the people that own "The Few" were using the old "The Real McCoy" factory in NZ. I don't know if the same people are now making both "The Few" and "The Real McCoy" jackets but they look very, very similar. 

 

Edited to add: Just had a look at the website for "The Few" and the prices seem higher than I remember "The Real McCoy" prices as being.

At 2K I could never justify a Real McCoy.

What about brands around the $500 mark - US Wings, US Authentic Manufacturing Co, Cockpit USA?

Great price but too late for me by a week. If I hadn't just bought the Ring Jacket version, I would have snapped this up.

Between $2 and $4m would be my guess.

If you decide to pull the trigger be sure to use the AU site and Google for discount codes. Never pay full price for CT

Thanks! The Ring jacket is very nice too.

I know what you mean - I quite like the collar but I'm not sure what that buttoned on part is in the fit pictures.
