I find buying shoes online a bit hit and miss. I prefer the personal touch of having expert shoe fitters assist me is the best way. Its also a good idea to take along a friend or two for an opinion and to take notes.

Picked up a couple of the linen masks, ordered a cotton one a while back and it's been great, really good fit.

A bit of news for my fellow Adelaideans.
We now have a tailoring focussed vintage/consignment store.
I helped get it running and have a hand in it.

I feel it's been a need for a while. We've got some cool vintage stores but nothing really catered to the more sartorially inclined. Hopefully this can alleviate that.

Sounds great, and I hope that it does well.

Your main issue may be getting sufficient stock - I know that in Brisbane, there is very little good stuff in op shops because there simply aren't that many people wearing nice clothes.

Hopefully, they fact that you're selling on consignment in Australia will help to attract some people who would otherwise be reluctant to pay to ship stuff overseas to somewhere like Luxeswap.

Thanks for the well wishes!
Valid points all round.
Thankfully sufficient stocking isn't too much an issue - we're happy to keep it small as it's a service extension of an existing clothing business.
There have certainly been enough people voicing a wish for a consignment service like this around here, so hopefully it gets put to good use.

Nice one Sam! great news for Adelaideans and Aussie.

My feedback is to invest in a better mannequin (ie ones made for tailors/menswear stores with fabric, wooden arms, etc). Here's what I use:

Myer has a 20% off Beauty sale today including fragrances. Tom Ford, Floris, Creed and others included
Only today, or does it go for a little while?

I didn't even realise that Myer stocked TF and Creed - but then again, it's been a few years since I've even bothered to step inside a Myer store.

Just a 24 hour sale so it ends at midnight tonight.

Yeah, it does sometimes surprise me what MYER stocks too. Although not so much in the menswear department which is fairly grim.

Found Myer (previously) to be best for Reg Grundies in terms of price for EMcP HK which i see have been taken over by Jockey, cut of their jib is exactly the same.

Wooworths are the best for 3 packs of Bonds wife beaters,opps Jackie Howe‘s. I bought a twin pack of classic Brando style organic white cotton T Shirts from Muji yesterday and one of their pique cotton polos good. value in terms of prices. The Muji casual winter shirts i’ve bought have all been good quality.

The kitchen department is good for bargain most of fry pans and pots all 25 years old and still in good nick. Cake tins come from there all bought for half price or less. Stock always appears to be on sale last bought a Tefal non stick frypan DJ’s had it $150 online $130 Myers $60 so it has its uses.

Bit of an odd one, does anyone know the format your phone number needs to be in when ordering from kamakura? Have tried several options and site won't accept them. And of course to ask online you have to put your phone number in.
