G’day gents... here’s a dumb question: Would you buy a tux if you knew you’d rarely wear it? Say it was circa $699 AUD... would you pull the trigger?
I wouldn't, certainly not for that money. My dinner suit is a Zegna Su Misura that I found in an op shop for peanuts and had altered so that it fits like a glove. Nearly every op shop has heaps of dinner suits that they are dying to get rid of, and you will definitely find something good if you look long enough. I even found Richard Pratt's Savile Row dinner suit in an op shop once.

But you’re the op shop guru, mate!

Nothing that good in this here parts... or at least not in my size 😢

I want to get one made in the fullness of time but it’s not a priority. Got one from the MJ Bale outlet in the meantime for something dumb like $200.

Too late! Picked up one from SuSu yesterday. I’ll save my MTM dollars for that midnight blue, shawl collar dinner suit I’ve always wanted.

Any good Oz Black Friday deals going about?

I have gotten sale emails from Masons (30%) and Modern Classic (20%).

Haven’t heard about anything else though...

I’m sorry, when I read the title of this thread, I thought for certain I would see some more explicit photos or pics, if you will. Perhaps that is in part I.

Anyone know of any Black Friday hotel deals? The place we normally stay with isn’t on offer. Merde!

MJ Bale looking for new investor or owner.

Looking to fund expansion plans.
I’d of thought they’d be on solid enough footing that the more immediate capital raising avenues would make more sense without diluting asset pool. Interesting.

Just Sydney to celebrate birthdays and marinate the liver at the end of January.
