Belstaff logo - looks like a Child Kidnapping Recovery Agency Operating in Lebanon.
@Gerry Nelson I believe you have a green flannel suit. Couldn't find the fit pictures. Would you mind posting some pictures. Also how versatile is it? Green vs dark olive vs lighter olive with faint check- what's your thoughts? Seriously thinking of adding a olive suit this winter.

I find the jacket very versatile and wear it with khakis, dark denim, grey flannel or as part of the suit. By the way, it's green Donegal tweed not flannel. I bought it to split it and it's worked well for me.
Melbourne guys might be interested in Hermen Menswears pop up they have running for the next 6 weeks. It's at Poppa & Co 451 Burke Rd, Glen Iris 'Big Red Building' Fri-Sun (10AM-5PM).
Very close to me; I will head down there. Thanks.
Bit of an out of the way question, but hopefully somebody can help.
We just cleared out my mother-in-law's house, prior to sale. In the process I found an antique umbrella. It looks to be made of a wood shaft and handle, and metal struts. I think the tips of the struts are possibly ivory. Surprisingly, the structure and mechanism are completely sound, but there are some rips and holes in the canopy.
So does anybody know a place in Melbourne where I could get this restored? Also, does anybody know when wooden umbrellas like this stopped being made? Thanks.
I think there is still one manufacturer of umbrellas in Australia because my cobbler sells some and sold me one. I think she is in Brisbane.
Who made that suit for you? Is it Molloy tweed?
The suit was made by Patrick Johnson. The fabric is donegal tweed from Caccioppoli which originated from Ariston. It's a very light fabric as far as tweeds go.
Thanks. I found her: Alicia Mora-Hyde. I'll see what she can do.
Besides Shuron and Moscot what are some other good trad eyewear brands to check out? (Not including Bailey Nelson, Warby Parker etc).
Cutler and Gross Oli
Barton Perreira, Anglo American, Hackett. All modernist but definitive traditional leanings.
And there is the spectacle maker in Adelaide.
Said it before visit George Skoufis.
Getting a new suit made out of Midnight Blue Barathea. Single Breasted one button peak lapel.
Does anyone know if she will make a solid stick umbrella?
