I know exactly what you mean, annoys the hell out of me. Barrel cuffs only for me now.

Only on laptops. Stand-alone keyboards are cuff-link friendly.

Keyboards that advertise themselves as "cufflink friendly". That'll be the day! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Gents, I need some help with something.

I've got my Uni graduation next Thursday and need a lapel decoration. Where can I source one in Melbourne? Shipping from overseas (unless it's express) isn't really an option at this late stage. Though, I may be wrong. Thank you smile.gif

Ditto.

All my new shirts have 2-button barrel cuffs.

Lapel flowers from Vanda can be there in 2 days If you fedex them; check with them though.

Does P Johnson have any lapel flowers left? I think they used to have some from Raffineria in Japan.

What about the Armoury? HK Speedpost is pretty fast once the product is sent out.

Not sure where else you can get any...

Well, there ya go!

Seriously, as long as you have that flower loop thingie on the back of your lapel, why not use a real flower?

Vanda flowers pins are nice, wearing one today - though might be too late to order.

I know Tom at P Johnson Tailors does not have any of the felt flowers left but has some paper ones which he uses for displays and I am sure he would give you one.

But I agree with applyon. Buy some cornflowers at a market, give them to the better half and borrow one for the lapel. Should not cost more that $7 - cheap options, gets a few brownie points and looks the nicest.

Why do you need to wear a lapel decoration? Will it be of some signifigance to you on your graduation?

I assume you'll be wearing academic dress, so it might be wise to not draw attention away from that with a carnation in your lapel just for the sake of it.

During my graduation, we got handed gold lapel pins with the uni crest on it after the ceremony. A nice token of remembrance of the day I guess.

Postera Crescam Laude b*tches.

I am not going to NY or LA or anywhere like that. I will be in Denver for a bit and traveling around Georgia for a while.

So what I am after is the name of some shops and / or brands I should keep an eye out for. Can anyone give me a few tips?

On another note I received my first ever P Johnson suit recently...................now I need a higher paying job.

LPS smile.gif

www.sidmashburn.com is in Atlanta. store is supposed to be cool, as are his garments. #menswear approved i believe. smile.gif

EDIT - saw this got mentioned!
