Am I the only one who feels like screaming at all the men in the CBD who wear suits with all their buttons done up?

Sounds interesting! I just bought a pinstripe Cantarelli flannel suit from Azzaro for $650. You are right about the armholes..but I pulled the trigger anyway. I figure that I'll get fussy about armhole height when I go bespoke (or blow $$$'s on D'Avenza et al).

Excellent - I look forward to reading about your impressions. I'd like to have a look at the store when I visit Sydney, hopefully in a month or two.

I've checked the website and it is mentioned that the construction is "sewn in canvas".
Would that translate to the whole lines (Classic, Collection and MTM) are constructed with full floating interlining (canvassed)?

Great to read your impressions on this new venture by Matt Jensen. I hope the business stays for years to come.

I like the price points of the products, in particular the shirts.

I agree with your comments about their ties. They are made in some fairly classic patterns and nice fabrics but this is all ruined by the too narrow tie width.

Im hoping DJs in Brisbane start stocking MJ Bale's suits in the near future as they currently sell their shirts. The only decent brand they have there at the moment is Zegna, followed by a splattering of Paul Smith and a rather uninspiring range of Durban.

My company is moving into new offices smack up in the "Paris End" of Collins... I'm thinking my spending is going to increase dramatically in a couple of weeks.

As an aside though, is "Paris End" the most ridiculous nickname for the top of Collins St possible? Do you think anyone's ever strolled out onto the Champs-Élysées and thought "Gee, this is just like Collins St between Russell and Spring"?

Last year my wife and I were acting as guides for a friend who was visiting Melbourne, from England. He was bemused (to say the least) at my reference to the Paris end of Collins St!

Was bored at lunch time so checked the price on those Briggs. Start at $175 for a girly looking umbrella and top out at $275 for a Steal shafted behemoth

Gents,

I had some spare time today after a meeting and stopped by The tie rack at The Myer Centre in Brisbane.

They currently have 50% off all socks and 30% off ties.

So decided to buy a couple of Italian made socks, a turkish pair and a chinese made navy grenadine like tie. I dont think its a true grenadine but seeing they are impossible to find in the stores in Brisbane so had to buy it. I also needed a replacement to my recently deceased Brooks Brothers tie.

Here's what I purchased. $50 all up.

Thanks for the heads up, Neyus. I think that I'll take a walk over to Tie Rack tomorrow to have a look at the socks. I particularly like the look of middle and right-most pairs in your picture.

There was actually quite a good range there that I couldnt make up my mind as to what to purchase. I tried to think of what I had already in the way of socks so my latest choices reflected this line of thinking.

Im really pleased with what you can purchase at Tierack at the moment. I mean its definitely alot better than whats available in most mens stores in Brisbane. Their goods are usually fairly classic and also nicely priced. Its not hard to buy ties of lesser quality or taste in Myer for $70.00. They also have a fairly nice selection of braces (while not albert thurston) are still really nice. I also saw a good range of self tie bow ties which would be perfect for formal wear. They also have a few interesting silk patterned pocket squares up there which I quite nice although they aren't on sale at the moment.

I also noticed that Admiral Quarters/Stuart suits are selling some fairly nice wooden coat hangers with a trouser bar for about $4.00 each. They are ex shop fitting so feature a little bit of that patina from being roughed up a little. Also worth a look.
