    I've never seen a pair of Bally Scribes in Australia..in fact all the shoes I've seen in Melbourne have had rubber soles.

    What would you guys say about wearing these pants to a "business casual" lunch event at a major law firm? (With a conservative business shirt and Alden Color 8 wingtips). They are essentially black with a faint burgundy windowpane check.

    I am fairly bold in my dress and get away with some things others wouldn't.... But this is making me hesitate for some reason.

    Very smart, go for it. Be great if you could find a tie with the same Burgandy and blue in it. or at least one of the two.
    But personally I would avoid anymore plaid in the tie or shirt.

    Does anyone know if there is an ipad or iphone app with a map of free wifi sites in Sydney or any of the capital cities. I know a couple of places in Sydney to hook in and I think Starbucks does but any one know of an app that will find or cite where free wifi is?

    Hey guys, posted this elsewhere but thought I might try on here as I think a few aussies on here have used Nialma or online MTM, and its really bugging me.

    Got my first 'test' shirt from Nialma, Thomas Mason fabric (can't afford P Johnson/Deerstyle/B&M MTM yet).

    Fit is great except there's some minor pulling going on around my underarm, I'm not sure if its the chest or armhole though as the shirt is the same measurements as my best fitting shirt which doesn't have the same problem. The chest actually feels fine so I'm just not sure:

    Can any shirt experts give me their opinion on what's causing the pulling?

    Did anyone get the email from Herringbone today about their MTO shirts?

    Special offer: Buy 2 get 1 free.

    I'd be pretty keen if they are sub $225.

    That being said - I'm still waiting on the said $50 online voucher for signing up to the VIP club...

    There are Bally stores in Melbourne, and David Jones stock them, but I've never seen a pair of scribes. The only Bally dress shoes I've seen in Melbourne are calf-leather rubber-soled shoes (possibly glue jobs) for $600.

    Got 5 pairs of shorts from Lands End today; 1x poplin blue, 1x madras green/blue, 2x blue bathers, 1x navy chinos. All Medium or 34. They all fit well - medium is pretty cosy but it is clearly american M and not aussie M because I'm an easy Large in shorts bought here.
    not the world's best stuff but they look and feel like shorts that cost $50 retail here, and the lot was $92 shipped.

    looking to buy some chino pants soon.

    Yup, there's an app called Free Wi-Fi strangely enough.

    My Nialma shirts have actually the same issue. Despite numerous alterations, it only got marginally better.

    I've ordered 2 pairs of shoes from Herring. Both are Loake for Herring whereas yours are Cheaney I believe. Dealing with Herring was great for my pairs and the quality is quite good for the price I payed. I suggest you use the coupon code from Ask Andy About Clothes : "HSAB". It gives you a free pair of cedar shoe trees if you spend above 100GBP, which you are.

    I'll let someone else comment about the quality of Cheaney as I have no experience with them. I will however say that I've strongly considered ordering that pair for myself.

    ^^ Good shoe quality. Leather of my Cheaneys was a bit stiff at the start but can soften up. The soles are pretty comfortable as well. Already commented on the styling of 11028 last earlier.
