What is this forum coming to? I ask a question relating to clothes. And the bed question garners greater response!

Pretty good quality and a great price.
Its not for me but that's no big deal (OK shuddup youse in the back seats, yes I'm looking at you PoP, Blah and Pinky)

I can't emphasise enough that when you are starting out - you just DON'T get what you pay for. Expensive does not = good. And especially with chinos - chinos are mostly just chinos. If it looks good, feels alright then it is good.

It's very specific things that looked good or seemed a proposition. Most of us though will find other products that whilst costing a bit more represent significantly better value, but that takes experience, or simply knowledge.

I've also read somewhere that companies that sell to Target also sell to high end retailers in the same way tools are made in Chinese factories and badged for different clients.

Guys just quickly, there has been quite a few orders coming through with SF discounts from better halves in the last few days, presumably xmas presents. If I may, if you are asking your wife/girlfriend/partner to get you something from here on in I highly recommend them choosing express post for shipping not regular at this time of the year. I don't want presents to turn up late, but I also don't want to be losing money upgrading orders to express to get them there on time. Monday next week will be the last day I ship orders out express for pre-xmas delivery, and even that comes with all the usual small print of it's out of my hands, Australia Post sucks etc etc.

I'm not being rhetorical or sarcastic here, but you can tell me where to get Meermin's for $250ish?  I've been looking at them over the last couple of days but seems like they come up at $315 buying from their website (175 euro + 35 shipping = 210 euro = approx $315 aud).  I'm just not sure about rolling the dice (considering reports on their variable quality control) on the classic range at that price.

I didn't mean to imply that Target is better or that cheaper is better. Just that paying a lot does not always guarantee quality, a good fit or satisfaction.
When experimenting - which lets face it can take nearly a lifetime - that cheaper is better to get things right.
You can walk into the most expensive, shiny menswear shop in Melbourne, take the lift upstairs, and many do, pay $5,000+ for an off the rack suit and walk out looking slightly better than Geoffrey Edelsten on a bad day.

After a while - yes you do more than often get to pay a lot to get what you want - but its after experimenting. It might be $3k + for a bespoke suit made how you like, for you - instead of 4 x $900 suits. Even then sometimes expensive isn't always the best choice.

Geez ok. My mental fx conversion is stuck in 2013.

Posted exactly the same last time I put one of their sales up.

Need to change the act up a bit. Take a leaf from Gino Cazzolino or something.

I'm sorry.
Its the weather.
I'm sure there's a German word for it that Freud used.
Its not quite angst.
More like ennui - a la Henri Le Chat Noir
