Do they really give out the premium ones for free with that code? I had assumed it was their standard ones, in which case I'm even more annoyed that I didn't know about the code when I ordered my Shakespeares and paid them for standard trees... angry.gif

I think you get the cedar ones for free.

I've got one set of cedar trees and 2 sets of the combination trees. The cedar ones are much nicer and a slightly better fit for my shoes, I find the combination ones are a touch big.

Yeah they do--I got a pair with my Shakespeares. It's really pretty generous.

Same with me. I have two cedar pairs and one split-toe pair.

I just got a pair of the standard herring tree's with a new pair of Cheaney's (which had to go back for half a size smaller). Even the standard ones are really fantastic I think especially when compared to the Pediwear ones. I must admit too to not knowing the code and paying for them too...l.

These days whenever I see a discount code box on a website I automatically Google for a code. Usually works...

I second that suggestion. I own a pair and you can't go wrong. Decent quality leather and good value for money.

Hey guys, I am after some boots/clean casual shoes. Something between these I guess. For the brown ones a lighter brown would be nice and for the black something with a less chunky/grooved heel. Budget at this point is $200 and available locally as I don't really want to purchase online unless I have tried the shoe on to know how it fits. I am located in Brisbane and open to any suggestions including non boots. Just after something clean, simple and preferably unbranded. Trying to get away from sneakers a bit. Thanks.





EDIT: Sorry guys, I put some links in but they aren't showing up.

I just got those, used their twitter code and yes - I did get the premium shoe trees.

Brilliance at its best.

Great shoes, great shoe trees and shipping for $350AUD.


Poor mans C&Js?

hey guys,

how's the quality of the cheapest suit at herringbone?

http://shop.herringbone.com/ProductDetail/mens/suiting/suiting_larix_weave/1496 as per this link.

i'm going to seoul and hoping to get a suit made but if i can't get it within the time i'm there i'm sorta stuck on where to get one and can't afford anything much more than $500.

does herringbone alter all suits bought?

Thanks

Where are you located?
Of course, the best thing is to go into your nearest Herringbone store - if there is one near you - and have a look at it and try it on.
As far as I'm aware, all of their suits are of reasonable quality and so it should be fine, as long as you don't mind narrow lapels on the jacket (they do have models with wider lapels, too). Another option to consider is MJ Bale, as their "classic" line of suits is around the same cost, from memory. However, their only stores at present are in Sydney (as the Brisbane pop-up store just "folded down"), so it's a bit harder to try on MJ Bale suits unless you are in or near Sydney.

With respect, I don't think that it's a good idea for someone to order a self-measured, made-to-order suit over the internet as their only suit or one of their only suits, particularly if they don't have a big budget and have time constraints. There are simply too many things that could go wrong - time delays, measurements being off, details being misunderstood and so on. In such circumstances, it's better to try to find a well-fitting, off-the-rack suit and have it tailored to fit or, if getting a cheap made-to-order suit, at least get it from a bricks-and-mortar store where someone else does the measuring and (hopefully) takes responsibility if something goes wrong.
