    is a Melbourne networking group, giving professionals from a range of industries a forum to expand their network against the backdrop of some fun and different events.

    Our goal is to facilitate strong partnerships and networks for our members both personally and professionally.

    We're proud supporters of Wear for Success, a not-for-profit that helps dress, groom and coach people suffering disadvantage in their efforts to find permanent employment.
    All membership fees, ticket sales and funds raised through auctions are donated to Wear for Success.

    You can become member for a yearly fee of $100 or $30 an event

    Most events have free booze and nibbles. (Not that anyone here would come just for that)
    Plus door prizes of clothes.
    Plus you get to meet real people and clothing fanatics. (and see how their clothes fit in real life)

    Sometimes it can be a pseudo clothes forum meet up.

    Previous events have been launches of clothing lines, Henry Bucks, Sunspel etc. Usually sponsors offer discounts on the night.

    Most importantly all funds go to Wear For Success

    I can definitely agree with that. In previous sales, I have picked up; Kiton, Brioni, Ferragamo, Borrelli, Stefano Ricci, Marinella, Tallbott, Zegna, T&A, etc.

    Melbourne guitar heads John Scofield Trio is playing Brids Basement next week. Miss at your own peril. So pissed off as this appears to be his only Oz gigs.

    I found some on display at a hotel's sitting room in Bangkok. None for sale, though.

    There were antique knick knacks which were immaculately exhibited in the library, sitting room, and dining room. Vintage trunks, taxidermy, notebooks, maps, books, mapping tools, optician's equipment.

    Thanks for the update and pics, won't be to everyones taste but I think the above works alright.

    I couldn't decide between olive / navy and sure enough by the time i'd decided today the spring20 no longer works >.< always the way when procrastinating on promos.

    I think olive will age better. Get it from Mr Porter. It will be about $25 aud more. But much quicker delivery and you will get a garment bag to store it and the free White pocket square. I am expecting a Barbour liddesdale navy from end tomorrow.

    Couldn't say; it's years since I bought them, and can't recall what I paid.

    Can't remember his name, but there was a member here a while ago whose idea of design was to cut holes in shirts, ties, etc. Has he made a comeback?
