Guys, I've got a pair of colour #8 shell cordovan tassel loafers from Alden for sale which unfortunately doesn't fit me.

Free shipping Australiawide to anyone who mentions they heard about it from this thread.

If you're in Melbourne CBD, happy to let you try them on before buying them. You can inspect the condition first hand. Check out my sig if you're interested. PM me any questions.

Okay. Shameless plug done. Back to regular scheduled programming.



American Tailors up in Bourke Street still have pairs of C&J shoes going for around $395. Saw the Weymouth wholecuts in black, and Swansee derby's in dark calf brown. Awesome shoes, great price if they are in your size. No more 8.5Fs for me unfortunately.



Also, Ralph Lauren store on Collins Street have some Purple Label stuff. Saw a stunning double breasted cardigan there. I'm a long way off from being able to afford RLPL stuff - but hey, still fun to look at and try on. Big-timer Melbourne members should snap it up. Only $3,000 icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

DJ's shoe department should have large "Angelus" brushes for about $20 if I remember correctly. Worth a look, I've been using them for a year as my "finisher" brush to buff off my wax before I start bulling the toes and heels. Great richly coloured dark wood handle, if you're into that sort of thing (which I am).

Greetings gents,

 

Have been a reader for a while, time to make a contribution and chuck in an ad while I'm at it.

 

I've been surprised not to find on this thread any mention of my favourite shirt label - Zambelli. They used to have a shop in the Strand Arcade here in Sydney, sadly no longer.

 

All is not lost, however, as they are manufactured by this company, which has a factory outlet right next to the Sydenham train station. Their Zambelli range of splendid Australian-made business shirts go for $80 each, or $70 if you buy 3 or more. They also have another line called Nic Green, also very nice, made in Australia and they go for $60 each, or $50 for 3 or more. And if you get on their mailing list, you can get a further 10% discount when they have a factory outlet sale. Highly recommended. Oh, and they're mostly not seconds. Very highly recommended.

 

Now, as to the ad, I just bought online a pair of Loake Shilton boots. Unfortunately, they're too big. So, before I go through the frigmarole of returning them, I have advertised them here. $200 flat for local pick up for Sydney SF members, or $200 +postage for others in Australia. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope to hear from other style gurus out there.

 

Cheers,

 

Eightace

I saw that DB cardigan. 100% cashmere, no?
Looks absolutely gorgeous.
A mere $3k.

*punch wall*

So I have a navy self stripe and a dark (DARK) charcoal suit.

Next suit - plain navy with no self stripe or a lighter grey? (Both colours work equally well with my complexion).

Looking forward to the thoughts of the professionals!

currently using comgateway but dislike how long they take from letting me know they have received my order.

Just bought some glasses from the US, and giving buyingserviceUSA (forum affiliate) a go. They quoted cheaper than priceusa, i like how they give a final invoice before the total shipment, unlike priceusa which has some uncertainty in the final price. Will see how the service is.

It really is up to you. Both are solid choices. If you had the cash to spare, I'd get a navy and lighter grey in the same cloth so that they can be worn as separates as well and easily inter-changable. 4 looks for the price of 2 suits.

Then again, not all of us (me especially) have the luxury of shelling out for 2 suits on the one go.

I didn't get a chance to check. Feels like cotton or wool blended with cashmere to me - which adds to the durability. Still amazing though. If only I had a spare $3,000 stashed somewhere. Then again - I'd rather go 2 pairs of Lobbs.

Same with me - Myer is just for amusement & window shopping.
Could be how others view it too.

I was in there a few months ago, asked the assistant to show me a watch. I pointed out some serious & glaring manufacturing defect & the (asian) assistant asked whether I wanted to but it. Grrr.

Hi pharmaboy I'm colonialboy!

I like the clothing 20% off sale at Target, everything gets 20% off at the register so you know its real. I think everyone is sick of these phony sales, there used to be a shop in the Brisbane CBD that had a closing down sale for years.

On another note, saw the real Ralph Lauren on TV last week, He lives on a picturesque ranch overlooking some mountains (rocky maintains?) with his wife of 46 years. His 3 kids were there, one son is in the company, the other 2 do their own thing. They all said they don't get free Ralph Lauren clothes, just a discount!

He talked about how his first rack of ties looked the same as everyone else, but they sold because they had the name 'Ralph Lauren' on the back. Billion dollar name!

Seriously boys, if you are going to order the wrong size shoes, why can't you order incorrect size 11 shoes?!

I use either PriceUSA or Shipito. PriceUSA is good when dealing with stores that won't forward to Shipito, or if you cbf doing some of the legwork yourself (i.e. customs paperwork etc).

Shipito is great if you want to order multiple items from multiple stores, and then consolidate the lot into one package. You can save a motza in shipping costs this way. I do this with everything from shirts to car parts.
