    I cant remember exactly but i think he said around $4-500 for a jacket. But it would be fused. It would actually be good to have a look at some work in progress. Then again im such a neophyte with tailoring i would probably just nod wisely, and actually have no idea.

    In the next edition of PBS' monthly film series, Stryka D and Mohair Slim present a free screening of Duke Vin and the Birth of Ska at The Spotted Mallard.The night includes a Q&A session with director Gus Berger, and the screening of a short film about Stryka D and Melbourne's sound-system culture to start the night. This comes in the lead-up to August's sound-system special edition of Jamaica Jump-Up, with Stryka D's Heartical Hi-Powa system set to shake the dance-floor.Here's a bit of info about the film: Duke Vin and Count Suckle arrived in the UK in 1954 and Duke Vin would soon set up the first sound system in the UK. They brought with them a sound that was sweeping across Jamaica and would later change the face of music in the UK. This was the sound of Ska!The short film starts at 7:30pm, Q+A at 7:45pm and the feature screening starts at 8:15pm. The Spotted Mallard makes great food, and opens from 4pm, so why not get down early for some dinner and a few drinks in the lead-up?

    The screening is FREE entry for all, and PBS members receive a free pot of Thunder Road beer or glass of Cake wine on entry! Members also receive a 10% discount on food and drinks all night, so don't forget your membership card.

    We do actually have four seasons in this town although the hot air coming off the hill does affect the weather at times.

    AFR magazine out today includes annual watch porn extra.

    Just flicked through that. Some nice watches. Have to say I like the Rolex Air King. Looks big though.

    I'm looking for a merino v-neck sweater that's better quality than Uniqlo but still under $150. Can anyone recommend anything?

    Gran Sasso. Not under $150 however, worth every extra penny.

    @oli2012 last year i purchased one from Brooks Brothers on sale. I think it was Saxxon Merino wool, super soft and warm,and so far performs very well. I cant compare it to Uniglo. It was sub $100 on sale, so you may be lucky as their sale is finishing soon (until the next one of course).

    Where's the best place to get it? I used to have a v-neck and lost about 20kg so it was way too big. I loved it so much that giving it away was very, very difficult.


    @eightace , Raiders looks like a lot of fun. I plan to attend when it comes here in November. I've been for Star Trek and Back To The Future with the MSO and both were amazing experiences.

    Aren't they 39-40mm? so not too large or thick.

    Smedley on sale or ebay, grailed. Never handled Gran Sasso so might just be better bang for buck.

    Hi gents, just a quick question on wedding attire. End of September I will be attending a outdoor wedding at Pam Beach. Wondering if wearing a tan cotton suit (garment dyed, deconstructed) is appropriate. Thinking of pale blue or pink with knit tie. Loafers or driver- no socks. Or a light grey linen suit with similar shirt, tie and footwear. Old picture of the suits bellow. Don't want to stand out too much for the right reasons. Alternatively I can go charcoal/navy , white shirt and black cap toe Oxford. Opinions would be appreciated.
    Edit : can also do a Californian tux or even a blue unstructured cotton suit.
