I've bought a few pairs over the years from Nungar. However I have had mixed reviews from friends who have dealt with him. Go for Roo in the comfort craftsman.

Besides, there are plenty of people on here commenting about Oscar Hunt whose opinions I value and trust and aren't just one post wonders who come here to talk down one thing or another then disappear and never post again. How often have we seen that all over here on SF?

Sorry, but borne from experience, I've come to seriously distrust reviews from one post wonders. And if you don't like that, PoP, you know where you can go.


It might be my first post but that doesn't mean I haven't been reading here.

 

I may only be a first-time poster but I've seen enough conversations on this forum to place a few seeds of doubt in my mind about the trustworthiness of your posts :)

 

So coming from you, I'll take the expression of distrust as a compliment :-D

 

 

In the meantime, as per my original post, I've had some good experiences from OH, I think they're good people, and I think their service offering will suit a lot of readers.

There's a chance I may even try them again in the future.

But based on my most recent experience I'm going to be exploring new options - will be trying someone new in the next little while.

 

Isn't variety a good thing? ;-)

RMWs are officially out of my price range.

Not sure what I'll do next time I need a boot.

I had a look at Baxter but their Australian models don't come in a wide fit.

😔

Get yourself to an outlet instead. I have 2 pair from the outlet here I think I paid $275 per pair can't tell the difference.

X-post on a rare tie day

^ Nice photo, HC, and the tie goes very well with the jacket and shirt.

 

I don't know about Canberra, but it's certainly too hot to be wearing that Herringbone, herringbone-weave jacket up here in Brisbane today!

Nungar Trading Post is selling the kangaroo Craftsman, as well as plenty of other varieties of RMW boots, for $365.

 

They don't seem to require any extra payment for MTO boots, either.

I think that must just be out of date, as my understanding is that RMW has now fully cancelled the MTO program and will replace it with a whittled down, pricier "bespoke" program later this year for craftsman and Adelaide models only.

Shabby? What planet are you from I thinks it's a great space, with minimal furniture. Also don't think the guys there are qualified tailors.

Thanks on advance.

I use Bancrofts in Toorak. In CBD not sure if they do dry cleaning but people seem pretty impressed by Sam in Docklands.

definitely not cold here but has been raining and cloudy all day. My version of this coat (of which there's been a few) is actually pretty lightweight so it's not so bad.

HC, Love the texture of the jacket and tie.


To all, what is your job and how does it influence your fashion choices?

I work in finance as an analyst in a small, suit and no-tie office. My colleagues only take out ties when meeting with bankers. I want to bring the tie everyday, but I probably need more confidence to be comfortable standing out everyday.

Do they still do it?

They may not have updated the website.

Sam accepts dry cleaning, his son runs a business in Bulleen, whom he sends it too. Personally haven't used it.

I'm the potentate of a small, non-aligned country. Generally I prefer military fatigues but on special occasions, such as the exection of a rebel leader or one of my wives, I wear traditional dress.
