Thanks

I ordered mine and am due to receive them more or less later this month. manufactured by a reputable shoe manufacturer, looks like CP but without the mark up, so even with the lousy exchange rate you'd still be ahead. you should be looking for reasons not to buy!

How much are they? I haven't bothered registering on the Gustin website, so I can't see the pricing.

JM they're $149 USD plus postage ($30USD) from recollection it was about 250 AUD landed

That's pretty much how H&M works. Grab stuff. Vaguely wonder if size is right. Line up at checkout. Wave card. "See Ya"

Looks like quite a few gents did some shopping over the weekend.

 

I miraculously came across a few Canali's in the correct size (46R), and God Forbid, the fit was spot on. Other than cuffing and letting out the trousers by 1 cm (moi= big ass with small but tall frame), no other adjustments required. The fabric is difficult to find on OTR, a navy/blue melange with a non-shiny/matte, dry soft hand. Another fabric is a light grey with skyblue pinstripes, also with a non-shiny dry soft hand.

 

Small gripes= button stance a bit too high, plasticky buttons, and button holes are machined. Other than the button stance, these can easily be rectified by our alterations tailor in Hong Kong.

 

Yay, no need to go through the hassles of bespoke in HK later in the year, so more time can be spent with family and friends.

They're $149 + $30 shipping. So about $250 AUD.

That's why they call it "fast fashion".

A youngish lady at hippy clothing shop next to Miss Margerita is from Goiosa Ilonica. Sorry can't spell mate. I was about to blurt out "Ernesto" is from there. Then I'd have to explain Style Forum...

That would be an hilariously awkward conversation.

Very funny. Online fora can be like that. It's a bit like having a fantasy life - or it might be seen like that.

Would being a member of a style forum be a bit of a 'mark-down', I wonder!  How do members explain it to their wives..I explain

that it is more of a Suitably Connected thing..

I tell people it's like Grindr - it's more respectable that way.

You'd know.

Last night. Plane back from Tinsel Town. Stops at Melb. Standing in aisle Ms fxh looks over his shoulder - she's tall he wasn't - at "nice young man" in front. He's on grindr. She could see pics and messages. She said all pics were also "nice young men" According to her he sent 6 messages. She alleges that - one was about a cup of tea.
