Sounds tempting. Let me know how you get on.

Also you automatically get a tax refund which cancels out the shipping costs


The British shoes I had have all fitted true to size, except for Barker which is silightly looser but still no slippages.

The Carminas are quite tight in the start but loosens to be very snug. Best fitting for me

if youre a size 8 in US, is it a size down in UK?
i plan to buy from herringshoes.co.uk

I haven't got my email yet!! I might go down later in the week and check them out and have a chat to them. At those prices I presume that its older stock he's still trying to shift. Any sizes that people want me to do a reconnaissance on?

I did some window shopping today in Melbourne's CBD, let's call it a 'tale of two sales'.

Ralph Lauren have their winter sale on. Lots of Black Label Anthony suits on sale for $1200-1400...but then you take another 20% off that. A couple of dinner suits too, including a 42L (one button, peak lapel which I tried on earlier in the year) for $1195, less 20%.

Zegna had their sale too...although 'sale' probably isn't the right word. A lovely Trofeo suit in medium blue (Milano model)...on sale at $2200 ($1000 off). Then he showed me a lovely Zegna Couture single-breasted peak lapel in charcoal pinstripe, amazing value at $3200 ($2000 off).

Quite how they can be spruiking those prices when David Jone's has a whole rack of Milano-model suits for $1300 is beyond me. Yes Trofeo is a lovely fabric but I'm not going to pay almost %100 extra for the privilege.

^^ You know what I want, slim 36s, especially the cotton and unstructured stuff.
post #5480 of 51823
What Euro size is that? 46?
post #5481 of 51823
Just an FYI - DJ's has taken 50% all Zegna and Paul Smith stuff.
post #5482 of 51823
PeeGee: Yup 46 Euro.

Pooh Bear: Was there ever a sale like this where even the premium brands get 50% off at DJs?

My Carmina's came in today, what beautiful shoes, and they were only ordered Thursday last week! Fantastic.

For you Canberra Guys I took them in to the cobbler in Fyshwick near where I work (Strangely named Manuka cobblers) to put some metal toe taps on, he was also very impressed with them. He actually makes shoes and I am taking a pair in to be re heeled tomorrow so i'll talk with him a bit more then, seems a very nice guy though. Could be a good resource for those guys that have asked about good Canberra cobblers

This sounds great thanks Charlie

I tried to ring 6239-3155 what are there hours?
post #5486 of 51823
No worries. hmm not sure about the hours, maybe he closes at 4. I'll check tomorrow though.

Hey guys,

First time poster, I've recently moved to Canberra and I've come to realise that I need a much thicker and warmer coat for work and a nice jacket for when I go out to a nice restaurant or function. I had a look around the Civic Centre today, and honestly, I was underwhelmed by the available selections. Do you guys have recommendations of places in Australia or better yet, in Canberra to have a look for some more, interesting choices.

Cheers

edit: Some other things on my list of items to buy; a nice new pair of black leather shoes and some scarves (they're all so itchy )

I've actually just returned from a trip to London & Paris, and I think the shopping over there has ruined me for shopping in Melbourne. Bought a pair of C&J's (Londsale handgrade, Dark Brown antique calf, also got a matching belt) and Church's (Westbury custom grade in black calf, ordered the matching belt last night after not being able to find stock in Paris), a Ben Sherman suit at their Savile Row store (which I love, I'm kicking myself I didn't buy more, completely different suit to what they have available here, and ludicrously bargain priced for what it is), plus some shirts from CT in Jermyn St, as well as Thomas Pink (these are ludicrously overpriced here compared to the UK).
I'm pretty much going through a complete work wardrobe refresh at the moment, far too many suits in there which are pretty horrendous

Welcome Micky. I would be very interested to know how the suit turns out for you.

Sounds like you did some pretty impressive shopping OS. I lived in London for a few years, and you are 100% correct - shopping over there can ruin shopping for you in Melbourne!

For those who can't be arsed traipsing out to Fyshwick, I always found Jhay at Dickson shops very reliable.

If you've tried David Jones (which is significantly worse than it used to be), Blades and John Hannah, Rodd and Gunn, that other one on the corner of London Circuit which I can never remember the name of, Oxford and Country Rd, you've probably exhausted Canberra's potential. to be honest. Shoes are a complete non-starter: the only shoes I bought there in seven plus years of living there were thongs. Pleasant enough place but clothing went comprehensively to shit when DJs got downgraded and Herringbone closed
post #5490 of 51823
Teggeh: Just train it out to Sydney on a weekend and shop there. Visit Herringbone outlet and what not. Don't know whether DJs stock the Milana scarves in Canberra, but during this sale 80 Cash 20 Wool scarves are going for $25. Good enough to keep your neck warm. As for shoes, if you know your size, you have to shop online from Herring Shoes and Pediwear (for English shoes), and maybe even the ebay seller Apoox10 (for Italian shoes). Speaking of Herringbone, I just realised the buttons on their shirts are plastic. For shirts that are nearly $200 I'd expect MOP buttons especially when they aren't exactly all that expensive anyway. I am disappoint.
