Do any of the DJs in WA stock Loakes (or any other decent stuff, for that matter)?

I've heard the one in Claremont's quite big, but I wouldn't expect it to be any better than the barren flagship in the city.

In the $200-$250 range for leather shoes, where am I best to look while in Sydney?

GIve us a run down after your visit to P Johnson, and I'd love to see some pics of the finished product.

I'm using the gf's mac and I'm not too good at copying image links... Its the Grenson Dylan in black. Lovely shoe. Do a search and let me know what you think.

I could be wrong but I don't think they stock Loakes in Claremont. They don't stock them in any other stores either. I live around the corner from DJ's in Claremont so I will check it out tomorrow. Brogues of Claremont in the Old Theater Lane do stock Loakes though.

Edit: Call them up, I'm sure they will be more informed on what they stock than any one here!

Actually, they're only $150, but I can bump the price back up to $200-$250 if you insist!smile.gif

yeah they never replied to my emails and this was months ago. best bet is to ring them.
although if they never reply to customers emails they should take it off their site imo.

i placed an order yesterday with pediwear and get an email this morning:

"There will be a slight delay of about a week before we can despatch the shoes as they are still completing manufacture at present. Please therefore expect delivery within 16 - 18 working days."

Interesting article in the SMH today about the markups on technology items in Australia, referencing the Productivity Commission's recent report into retail. For those who are interested (franky xavier.....)

Also, the size 32 sell out like nothing I've ever seen before. So I gave up on HY trousers, and now just order from P Johnson, which unfortunately cost about $400 a pair these days.

How are the Benjamin pants from ehaberdasher.com in terms of price/quality ratio compared to Howard Yount? I need a few 100% wool pairs

Never tried HY, but I do have a Benjamin suit for about 8 months. The pants are what I consider generously cut as I prefer very slim pants. But to some it may still be slim. Medium rise, snug around the arse, but a bit billowy from half way down the thigh for me. Basically a straight line from the widest part of the pants where the arse goes down to the hem. Drapes well. Had to get them taped from the knee. Super 140 wool has a slight sheen to it. Haven't pilled yet at the crotch. Smooth feel but not delicate.

Until I find a brand with sizing that works for me everytime, then it's off to the internet I go.

Consult with Pediwear or Herring. I recall reading that you can mail them an outline of your foot that you have drawn on paper then they can advise on a size/last.
