post #65896 of 67946

Guys, I have a number of brand new never tried on C&J shoes for sale - it makes more sense to lose money on the sale than send them back. Here is what I have:

Drummond Black UK10 $500

Drummond Black UK 9.5 $500

Lowdes dark brown suede UK 9.5 $575

Edgware Black UK 9.5 $525

 

Would prefer pick up in Melbourne CBD, but can arrange post at your expense. Happy to send more pics as requested, but these are brand new and never been tried on (are not 2nds). First come, first serve before I list them in the B&S page.

Reading history is one of my non sartorial pastimes but I have to wonder when English sensibility and intellectualism provides this analysis. "The sartorially impeccable Wehrmacht rocks 'innovative submachine guns' with an old school mash up of 'baggy thigh breaches' and 'high collared' tunics." WTF is going on here and anyway everybody knows that the SS were better dressed as their uniforms were made by Hugo Boss.

Just saw Paolo Sorrentino's new flick "Youth". Pretty epic. Similar to The Great Beauty. I think Attolini is used again by costume, but not 100% sure.

Didn't know this was out yet. Keen to see it.

I saw The Dressmaker the other night.
Mainly because I'd had it recommend, softly, by a friend in the game.
And another friend has a extra/bit part. At one magnificent close up taking up the whole screen with his face. Briefly.
It probably didn't help that I initially asked the nice young girl for 4 tickets to The Seamstress. Clearly she didn't know what a seamstress was. My family "helpfully" corrected me.

I thought the first hafl of the film was like the worst of Australian cutesy comedic outback (the real Australians!) films but the second half managed to almost rescue it with a kind of sunny gothic tragedy.
In general I wasn't convinced by the broader mise en scène at all. In fact it got in the way. I thought it was too contrived, cartoonish and self aware. I did like the costumes.
I haven't read the book and going on the film I'm unlikely to but I did sometimes get the feeling this was a missed opportunity for a grander film with a more centred noir feel.
But then again maybe I'm just a grumpy old fart.

The most recent film I saw was The Martian. I liked it a lot, but I'm worried about Matt Damon; is he starting to become typecast as "bloke left behind in outer space"?

not bad eightace. i think the jacket is a touch big for you - if that were me i'd size down; and i'd swap the tie for something less bold and with a bit of texture that is more suited to the texture of jacket and also because it's a dressed down outfit. maybe a navy knit tie.

Thoughts on the new PJT glamour shots? Would like to know if I am alone in my assessment....

 

https://pjt.com/gallery

 

My rather negative opinion. Take it or leave it. Probably insignificant.... (Click to show)

Maybe I am losing touch, but I don't see many good lines: just lots and lots of wrinkles, lots of collar gaps, and very poor trouser fits. Quite a few of the photos make me cringe and the photography hurts my eyes (over exposed, contrast way too high, poor representation of fabric textures and colour). The tailoring does not appear comfortable to me. They are nice guys personality wise, but I have to say I only know (or knew) a significantly smaller proportion, given all the new staff.

 

Please please please dial it the fuck back and take us to simpler times. Please. I beg u....

 
End rant. Back to regular programming...

The whole jumper over the jacket is cringey, especially when seen on 28+ degree days.

I agree. That said P Johnson clearly have the ability to make well fitted suits.

A couple of months ago an American was skeptical about P Johnson having seen pictures of Porter in a double breasted jacket that was way too slim for him. It's not a good marketing image.

I don't see any ill-fitting garments in that gallery. Some jackets are a little less structured and the material could be a little wrinkly. That's all.

 

The lighting is harsh and makes all the materials look too shiny. I think that's the main problem.

 

Apart from that, the actual clothes look pretty good - nice cuts, nice style.

I think they have presented their products extremely poorly. The whole thing looks awful, save for a couple of shots.

Hopefully the stylist gets the boot next time cause the clothes deserve better.

Agree with you Cox. PJ's point of difference is to try and be casual in a formal setting. Basically trying to be a linen summer suit with wool. I think they do a good job, but yeah, shiny flash!

 

The female models in the section below look nice.
