Well I survived my first Herringbone warehouse sale almost entirely unharmed. Wallet took a slight hit. Navy wool cardigan for $50 and a tie which I don't quite understand. Model name is Granger and it appears to be a 6-fold weave of some kind. It has a fine square pattern to it. I liked the weight and feel of it and at $149->$70 figured it was worth a shot. Anyone know anything about them? It also came in dark green.

I love this sort of attitude. Do you have the T-shirt as well?

Anyway warehouse sale wasn't what was all cracked up to be.

Only saw 1 pocket square entire time there on this young fella who was talking to another shopper about his vintage watch.

Bought myself 2 $30 ties and a pair of $50 light blue pants.

Knit tie wise theres hardly any. I say 3 models. Solid light blue, light blue with horizontal stripes and light blue with navy dots

Hey everyone, I'm considering my first MTM SC at deerstyle in Brisbane. To be honest I have no experience in this kind of thing and was wondering if anyone can suggest which kind of cloth is a good choice for a spring/summer SC. I'll obviously have a chat to the guys in the store once I'm in there but it would be nice to know other peoples experiences with different cloths in a humid climate. I was thinking some sort of linen but I'm afraid that this kind of look is quite limited in its versatility. I'm in a lab most of the week so it will probably be a pretty casual affair to be paired with jeans/chinos.

They are cotton only, I wash mine all the time. They are not dry clean only, specifically made as a whole suit to clean at home. Not a hit at you, I just know you can wash them. Cold wash never hot.

You said that was our little secret.

Anyway I didn't delete those pics you sent me and if you are mean to me I'll post them online here.

Upright Man, that is good to hear. The bloke who runs Deerstyle is a lovely person who will be able to have a good talk with you about various patterns. He's got quite a few fabric samples on hand for you to have a look at - hundreds, in fact. So as to narrow down your choices, have a think about what you actually want to use the jacket for. Do you want it to be a bit more formal? If so, then something in a lightweight navy wool is probably your best bet. Do you like patterned cloth? If so, then perhaps something with a check - Deerstyle has access to large numbers of different checks, ranging from the conservative (say, navy with a reasonably discrete overcheck) to grey or light brown with strongly contrasting overcheck. You've probably done so already, but so as to give yourself some ideas, you could look at recent posts in the "What are you wearing right now" thread so as to see what fabrics other people are wearing (as most of the people posting in that thread are in the northern hemisphere, they're largely wearing summery clothing at present). Not to complicate things too much, but also have a think about what other features you would like - do you want patch pockets and, if so, do you want the breast pocket to be a patch pocket, or welted? Do you want a central vent, side vents or no vent at the back of the jacket? Notch lapels or peak lapels? And so on - there are a lot of choices to make. Anyway, as I say, the bloke who runs Deerstyle is lovely and he's always happy to chat with clients about different cloths, different patterns and different stylistic choices. Make sure to give him a call or to send him an e-mail first to set up an appointment as he doesn't spend all his time at the shop.

I could only afford one, so went for the slightly more SF approved 'Fuck off, we're full' bespoke half canvas

Isn't there anything on TV tonight in Melbourne? Or what that quote from the seppos in WW2 'as big as the New York cemetery and twice as dead'

Aside from that I ordered some Marcoliani Argyle's from Howard Yount last Friday , anyone here know delivery times?

Sydney / Melbourne is like Auckland / Wellington

Q: Why is it so windy in Wellington?
A: Because Auckland sucks

Good catching up with appolyon and California Dreamer today at the HB sale. I am fairly certain that I saw a couple of identified Australian members snooping about (including the guy I have seen around 500 Bourke from time-to-time).

I am still super pissed at the $199 navy blazers that fit perfectly with the exception of the short sleeves with FUNCTIONAL BUTTONS! Short sleeves are also the reason why I steer clear of HB shirts.

Jimbosaurus, I am impressed that you were able to score that cardigan for $50 - I went through the stack but found them ranging from $100 to $119, so nice pick up.

As I discussed with appolyon, I am trying to exercise some spending discipline and only purchase things on my wish list - and the absence of bottle green and/or burgundy knit or Grenadine ties meant that I walked away today empty handed (but maybe fuller pockets).

Checky, what time were you there at the sale. I was ninja snooping for SFers when I was there but simply couldnt spot anyone.

Also I couldn't help but notice that there are some gaping holes in the barriers between the change rooms, but being the gentleman that I am I did not try take a peek. There were some very fine young ladies there this evening though.

Also I think I should join the no purchase club for August and September.

We were there pretty much 4pm on the dot...
