    Looking for a white/blue BU to use for formal occasions and a few BD for casual wear. I've checked out TMLewin, MJB, Herringbone, Rhodes & Beckett and other affiliates. How does the quality amongst those differ? With the current sales it looks like TML and MJB would be best for price, however TML's designs for their casual wear is not too good (IMO, as I can't see myself wearing them).

    Don't want to go over $50 per shirt, is there a better place to shop for casual/dress shirts? I could go by Collins st as the lot of the shops are located there or nearby if it's cheaper.

    Hi,

    Long time reader but I'm wondering where I can get my hands on some medium/large cedar shoe trees, locally or internationally - at a good price (under $30 would be good). I am particularly interested in a group buy to get a lower price per shoe tree.

    Thanks in advance

    Woodlore from amazon, their shipping rate for multiple buys are quite good.

    I picked up two casual cotton shirts for $25 each, and a pure wool vee-neck jumper for $40, from TM Lewin last night. Outstanding value.

    Seen Old Spice at MyChemist. Even if it is the aftershave, you can just dab it on your wrists. I'm riding a horse.

    Looks good, mate.

    After some back and forth with my tailor, I've decided to stick to roped shoulders, even if there is no padding on the shoulders. I quite like that look for a less serious suit (like the brown).

    Do you guys think these Bernhard Willhelm slippers would go well with a three-piece Canali suit for more formal occasions?

    Still on the Slippers theme.

    Michael Bastian and Antonio Ciongoli (formerly MB's right hand man) wear them well in a casual, summer way (I know others may disagree).

    Also for any fellow Michael Bastian fans (looking at you thebrownman) here are a couple of Instagrams worth following: http://instagram.com/bastiangirl / http://instagram.com/mbastiannyc/

    Love this for the weekend.
