    Guys any size 15s out there? I found a pretty nice Canali Exclusive shirt today at an op shop. Not my size, but I figured someone could use it. Happy to let it go for cost plus postage

    Herring Readings in suede and Loake Strands in burgundy arrived yesterday. For the guy that was asking, the readings are fantastic for $130 plus shipping.

    Hi,
    Just though I'd introduce myself to the australian section of this fantastic forum! I have been in the fashion industry for over 15 years in various roles from retail through production and now in bespoke, made to measure and premium alterations. I have a particular interest in suiting and formal attire and in the history of clothing.
    I am also a very avid fan of fine liquor! Look forward to conversing with you all over the coming months!

    If you bought them in the Dark Leaf would you mind please posting a picture that is representative of their true colour.

    I bought some Chamberlain's in mahogany and they came a LOT lighter than presented on the Herring website (still awesome, but I wanted something darker).

    Hi Guys a few options for discussion below, click to see in full size. I've just mocked up on the back where the tipping would be a) because im in a bit of a rush and b) because i'd like to get some feedback on the colours and logo options. I'll mock up on the back blade when we get a bit more advanced with this.

    I'm also waiting on a bunch of swatches for next season which will have some good ones we could do and I'll post some photo's when they arrive in about 3-4 weeks. Whatever we choose I'll likely not do in the mainline to keep it exclusive to us. We could do a grenadine as some suggested, but it would need to be tipped and have the embroidery on the tipping, if it's to be on the blade it has to be something that will embroid well like a twill.

    I'm up to 8 people interested, so we need another 2 now. I have PM'd Coldeyedpugilist as he's been off the radar for a few days and hopefully he will be 1 more.

    Lastly anyone interested in the grey cashmere knit, I will be receiving 4 more slightly tweaked pre production ties in the next 3-4 weeks. 1 will be for me of course but I'll offer up the other 3 to whoever is interested when they are in, but of course feel free to register interest as a few already have. Full production of this tie should be here july at latest.

    Without further rambling -

    I like the burgundy with the map design, myself.

    Also keen on the cashmere knits when you get them.

    Hey Aussies,

    Just a quick heads up - I received my order of Viccel socks last week (~2 weeks shipping) and handwashed 2 pairs this arvo. Very glad I went that way as I discovered that the wine coloured ones aren't colourfast (the other pair were purple and didn't colour the water).

    All up though, they seem like fantastic socks

    Hey CW, just a thought. Could you inlay the text in the australia map, kind of line this? Scuse the image editing, MS Paint has its limits...
