Haha funny thing, my company dont want us wearing our jackets... changes thing a bit. Want to be presentable without baggy sleeves.post #67249 of 679461/7/16 at 4:15pm
Double Monk prices are pretty high to be honest, think it was $750-$800 for C&J Hallams compared to the $600 Herringbone has had them at for ages, which was high in comparison to overseas in itself. Part of this would be the bloody dollar. Still it's great finally having somewhere in Sydney, the largest city in Australia, to actually be able to look at good shoes.

Well when shirts become outerwear - as they have for many - then its different in a lot of aspects from the "rules" of tailored menswear.
Do they actually have guidelines which say No Jackets?
What is their rationale?
I'm curious.post #67253 of 679461/7/16 at 8:39pmQuote:
I've heard this about a few workplaces (in addition to Apple and to architecture firms, where the "no jacket" rule goes without saying!).
The rationale generally seems to be that jackets are too formal and "stuffy" and that clients might feel intimidated or overly-restrained if the person facing them is wearing a jacket.post #67254 of 679461/7/16 at 9:25pmpost #67255 of 679461/7/16 at 11:15pmI think there are two pairs of CJ lowndes left in my size from the herringbone sale.
Thoughts on black vs espresso suede?
I really wanted dark brown as i have about 4 pairs of black loake/allen edmond bal/blu for work and no brown shoes.
Casually i wear indy boots or sneakers with jeans/chinos and not so sure on brown suede.
Should i buy another pair of (very nice) black shoes or should i pick up a couple of pairs of brown meermins instead?post #67256 of 679461/7/16 at 11:39pmYeah the herringbone on Bourke street still had a couple of pairs left in larger sizes.
Was tempted to get the black captoes but already have a nice pair, need black punched captoe for next pair.
The brown does look quite good though.post #67257 of 679461/7/16 at 11:44pmQuote:
Yeah I thought it might change the "rules" so what are they now then?
Not strictly a rule that says no jackets but it is preferred we dont wear it as a way to promote a less formal culture within the workplace and to seem less intimidating and more approachable when clients are present.post #67258 of 679461/8/16 at 12:11ampost #67259 of 679461/8/16 at 12:52ampost #67260 of 679461/8/16 at 1:48am
