I've noticed that too and they are stuffing around a bit with some of the cuts in general, they now have an "Osaka" block grey suit on the website for about $599 I think, but they have made the lapels thinner, where as I think the Osaka block was very good as is.
It's sad, but I feel they've adopted the same if-you-can't-beat-'em-join-'em mentality as some of their competitors (2-button is in, let's all do 2-button); this new focus most likely stems from some numbers man in Van Laack who's more focused on cost effectiveness than the customer's likes and dislikes.
It still irritates me that I cannot get a 3-roll-two Osaka from their MTM program.
A few exciting and a few frustrating updates for you all. Firstly my shipment of Pantherella socks has just landed. A FS thread will be going up this weekend once photo's are taken but here is a run down of what I have in stock -
Frustrations are the usual start up ones of waiting for designers and photographers to finish off work I'm waiting for and website revisions, which will prob now delay the site launch until late March or early April and also means I can't get the affiliate thread going either just yet, but it's all in the works.
All sounds very exciting. Look forward to seeing the site. Good luck!
Among the coolest injuries I have ever heard of
Hope you have a speedy recovery mate, that's a story for the grandkids.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Greg!
By the way, were any of you Melbourne guys on the tram from the Docklands to the city up Collins Street at around 10:30 this morning? The guy was wearing a gray SB suit with narrow lapels, burgundy grenadine tie (looked like Kent Wang) and what looked to be black Weymouths (or some other wholecut with a medallion toe).
didnt see them this time around but i bought one end of last season, unlined. think it cost me 69 but money well spent. all those albizatti ties are great quality and well priced. and the 8cm width is preferred to the 9cm width drakes ties they carry
Sorry to hear about that Greg and a speedy recovery. I thought you told us you were going on a cruise of the fjords!
Sounds like a good deal - go for it.
I have been a knocker of HB in the past, based on their often outrageous mark-ups on regular stock. Of course, Harrolds and American Tailors (in Melbourne) are not any better. On sale, however, HB is often worth investigating - you might not find a bargain exactly (wool ties notwithstanding?) although the mark-ups are at least bearable, bearing in mind you are paying a premium for the convenience of inspecting / trying on the item in store. Moreover, you are supporting a local, long-established business which no doubt has high overheads (occupying prime retail space in both Melbourne and Sydney).
I sometimes think that Aussies on this forum (myself included) are a little too ready to snipe at places like HB. However, I would be genuinely sad and disappointed if HB et al closed their doors. Australia would be left even more of a sartorial wastland than it already is.
