What are the options?
Immaculately tailored 3-piece navy pinstripe suit, crisp white shirt, loud tie and pocket square and a pair of handmade midnight blue Cleverleys.

And start a fight or two.
you've got me confused with my mate shooey

David Crosby's rust fringed suede jacket Hendrix Paisley shirt
Nick Cave black Levi's
Oli's RM Macqurie boots
I had a lovely beige/tan soft suede fringed jacket custom made years ago but someone pinched it at a party after spiking my drinks, or drugs , or food, or somethink. Black jeans I still have but the only RMs I have are both Cuban heels? Although one pair is black Santa Fe. Not boots of Spanish leather though. No paisley shirt in wardrobe. Just been through shirts and donating 30 shirts I don't like. Ms. Reckons 25 Blue and variations OCBDs are enough! And then she discovered new stuff still in wrappers on top of wardrobe.u

Part of me is thinking black skinny jeans, black Cuban heeled Santa fe RMs, black leather jacket, the non bikie type one like a sport jacket almost, and white ocbd.

Or

White jeans, brown suede boots, navy peacoat, pink ocbd.

Or

White drill trousers, white t, red/blue tartan shirt, khaki field jacket.

Or.......,?

Do you guys advertise your stuff on ebay.com.au or just regular ebay.com?

I havent been able to get any interest on the items ive put up on the aussie site, whereas the main site they get snapped up by some baller from japan or china, but I dont know if thats coincidence.

I'm slightly relieved the shoes are half a size too big.

It's probably not a coincidence, appreciation for fine mens shoes is probably much more mature in Japan than Australia.

What postage cost do you usually set when shipping to Japan/China? Looking at selling some JL City II's (size 7.5/museum calf if anyone's interested PM me wink.gif) but not sure what price shipping to set it at.

That looks great, CEP! You should take another shot doing a roundhouse kick in the outfit or maybe with the beige one.
post #53201 of 56347
Thanks mate. As for the roundhouse, I'm more of a kick-low-and-collapse-the-knee-joint kind of guy (-:

Notice how fitted the jacket is? The beige made-in-turkey version is much blousier, so that it looks like a completely different garment.
post #53202 of 56347
That's interesting. Do you have a preference?
post #53203 of 56347

 

if buying from suitsupply, it's recommended when buying trousers, to upsize by one. they fit a bit slim.

Depends... If I'm going to layer with wool jumpers and the like, I prefer the beige. If not (Spring to Autumn), I'll go with the navy.
