As usual, "core" products are excluded from the sale. I have no idea about suiting, but it would be nice if it at least some suits and jackets were part of the sale!

My apologies if my reading of the e-mail is incorrect.

your maths isnt great as 30 then 15 percent off does not equal 45 percent off.

If it is 45% off I'm kinda pissed I'm going to miss it... having said that, it probably saved me a fortune.

You've got me doubting myself now.
Again, I could be wrong, but I don't believe that the discount means that 30% is subtracted and then another 15% is subtracted from that subtotal (ie 30% off $100 = $70, less 15% of $70 = $59.50). Instead, I believe that the discount is applied as 30% + 15% = 45% which would then, taking the above example, bring a $100 item down to $55.

I guess that I'll find out tomorrow whether I'm right or not...

Checked out Philippe Perzi today and met whom I assume is Philippes father, Johann... really nice guy. He was quite taken with the suit I was wearing (grey PoW check from Herringbone).

I was tire kicking so didn't waste too much of his time. The RTW shirts look very nice and I'll definitely being giving him my patronage in the future (service goes a long way with me).

DJs stocked zero in his size (36L) and myer had a couple of pairs of truly foul pants. He liked the dress shoes there, but not sure about width. Apparently Florsheim are having a 30% of sale starting Friday so might check them out first.
If you are in Melbourne there is a guy who has opened a High & Mighty type shop (hes not part of a chain) just off Whitehorse Road Balwyn. I think he starts with his lower sizes at 36. From a quick squiz I had one day its not all big and baggy,stuff looked more than ok, and hes a nice guy. Don't feel bad about Myer - they are simply dreadful for mens clothes these days no matter what size - a shameful thing for Melbourne considering their past reputation. The standard SF mantra in your case (or your handbrake's case) is go bespoke. But lets face it most SFers do it in their damp dreams or the few that do it in real life have excess $$ or know what they are doing. But here you are on the australian members for a reason - we are cut from a different cloth, so to speak from our Seppo comrades.(f’rinstance we are noticably less fearful of homosexuality and also less mysoginistic in our postings.) I’d suggest you check out the reasonably well regarded Made To Measure places like Pernac Australia for a made to measure suit that will be cheaper and look better than a lot of off the rack ready to wear suits. note - something occurs with the typeface on my eeePC from time to time. I don't know whats causes it and it seems to right itself magically or on reboot

I assume you are referring to 4" cuffs hovering an inch above the shoes. As of yet there are no laws banning them in any state at all although I do believe one should be introduced.

Out of interest, what would I expect to pay (full price) for a Herringbone suit? The website is quite unhelpful in this regard.

Between $1,195 and $1,295 usually I believe. I just bought one last week for the former (but got my GST back when I flew out), but I recall seeing another style which was a tad more expensive.

I just wanted to add - it states on the email that you need to print it out and bring it to the shop to redeem the extra 15% off.

Happy hunting.


True, true - here is the link for those that didn't get the email.

I'm not sure if you have to be 'signed up' as a VIP, but this doesn't cost anything and I'm sure the majority of members here are in HB's target market, so if the carrot of 15% off encourages some more stylish Aussie gents to get along and get into the product, it's a win-win as far as I'm concerned.

It does appear the whole of Sydney is on sale. Country road is 40% off almost everything. This is probably leading up to a cracker of a stock stake sale. For people who visit the Herringbone clearance centre, myself included, let's not be shy about posting when they get new stock in. Herringbone usually go 30% off for Stocktake, which is a great saving. And as pointed out before by Mr Cash the suits are complimented everywhere. And I can confirm that Look Smart in the Dymocks building do a great job on alterations. Great for people who are unsure what they want tailored, they took me through a few options. Including showing me what Ethan would do! Went to work with pins a few times and let me see what it would look like!

You'll get their attention if nothing else. A separate thread on the best nailbrush retailers in Sydney?
