What's it like? I have some Sportscraft knitwear that I like but haven't tried much else.

I received my pair of used C&J monkstraps and they're the Mortimer model which are handgrades made for the US market. This also means that although they're marked as 9.5, that's the US sizing (not UK as I thought) so I'm going to put them up for sale as soon as I'm eligible to post an ad in the forum.

 

 

Just in case I don't get an Aussie buyer:

 

For those who've sold to US buyers, what's the best way to do this?

 

I had a look at the Australia Post site and it looks pretty expensive to ship them to the US ($37.50 for 1-1.25kg parcel). Is there a cheaper way to do it?

 

Alternatively, any painless way to shrink feet? ;)

never heard of sportscraft before, but im now going there. are they good or bad at anything in particular?

 

post #8842 of 53794

im especially interested as im now thinking that i dont need a suit and id probably be better off buying a summer blazer (or two or three at that price) and some odd pants,

Sportscraft is an old Australian clothing brand that has been around for decades, at least since the 1940s. It used to make good, high quality stuff but just like Country Road it now makes pretty much everything offshore and quality has dropped.

However, whilst I wouldn't bother buying business shirts from there, I have heard that Sportscraft's cotton chino pants are quite well-made and well-cut and that they aren't bad value. It's quite possible that their casual cotton jackets are alright, too.

I certainly wouldn't have paid full price for the jacket (~$400 if I'm not mistaken), but at $39 it definately gets the Krusty Brand Seal of Approval

Endless.com have 33% off for Black Friday with free delivery. $145 drops down to $90, even cheaper for the new wayfarer.

Used them recently. A few days after the order they said they'd ship in a week. Interestingly, a few days later they turned up. Not massively cheaper than buying here though, after accounting for shipping, potential complications, warranty, trying on etc.

Australia should really be carrying The Rake magazine. I wonder why no distributors pick this one up. I keep finding myself having a hard time picking up decent magazines. It shouldn't be this difficult. Just ranting.
