    I've been in Melbourne the past few days for work and I got some time today to go shopping. Ended up going to:
    Republic Boutique
    Dot COMME
    Assin
    Harrolds
    Eastern Market

    Were there any places with artisanal stuff?

    They all had pretty low levels of stock and weren't really worth going to except for EM. I spent prob 1.5 hrs just trying clothes on while they were shooting photos of new guidi stuff that just came in. The Elena Dawson stuff was really cool and tempting but I ended up getting the wool linen (glenplaid i think?) PH blazer and the matching pants. But yea overall the Eastern Market team was really friendly and accommodating and def worth visiting.

    Out of that list I'd say EM and dotCOMME are the only ones worth it

    Check out the consignment shop Bruce on Gertrude st. in Fitzroy, they get random things in and sometimes have Harnden, Elena, CCP etc (basically locally used things from EM) https://www.instagram.com/shopbruce/

    Theres also a couple other store along Gertrude st that have things like Engineered Garments if you're into that

    I should probably try these on before buying a pair, but any sizing advice on PH belted pants/jeans? Any difference between mens/womens? Are they pretty much free-size if the waist fits or should I exercise caution when getting a womens pair?

    Waist will be generous to size but the crotch might be too tight to move, depending how down in size you go.

    Has anyone posted a leather washing/shrinking guide here before?

    Thinking about throwing a Rick jacket into the washers.

    So, last Saturday I visited a presentation of new fragrance by BBS at 3,14 (Moscow). It was by invitation only, so the crowd was pretty cool. 90% of the people were dressed in BBS from head to toe and that looked a bit comical, but pretty rad nonetheless. The man was there too, obviously. I was lucky enough to talk to him. He appeared to be very modest, warm and down to earth guy. They showed a short art film dedicated to this event and a live band was providing a soundtrack.

    Apart from the fragrance Boris presented jackets made of yellow transparent leather. The jackets are in fact an art object as they're practically unwearable due to their extreme stiffness. I could not take pictures of the jackets there (the security would not let me and I wasn't really in a gunfight mood) but I found them online afterwards, so I here they are – for those, who might be interested.

    www.darklandsberlin.com Cordovan leather
    Price: 1453 €

    Long time no post. I've broken the no-kop and gone on a Carpe/L'maltieri binge. Once I get a few more pieces then I'm done. The game's over.

    If any of y'all have any Carpe footwear in 44/45; pants, shirts, and jackets/coats in Size 2/3 then I'm interested.

    I was buying the cotton ones too, but as I was completing the paypal payment someone else got them. Would that someone be you?

    This is endgame wardrobe stuff for me now. CDiem family and old school Devoa only.

    nah that was someone else, but I was eyeing them too.

    that's my endgame too. would like more old devoa stuff but it's hard to differentiate particular seasons/models/etc

    Looks like stores are starting to get second round L-0 deliveries -- if anyone comes across a pair of 5-p pants in DENIM size 48 I would appreciate the information!!
