My MTO will have them too, now the waiting begins...
They had few pairs even at $335. Still a lot of money to pay for a pair of shoes. $250 I will pick up a pair. I really like their flash mounted rubber toe tap. The finishing on them are great. I don't know if you realized these shoes stands straight and flat on the ground. DJ Sydney store has a pair of coffee suede cap to for $370. Size 41(my size).
Really wish Herringbone put their warehouse sale stuff online as with R&B.
u been to the warehouse? its a mess
i finally got around to seeing batman last night (at imax) - can i just say what an amazing film, definitely worth seeing. Such a high quality story and nice to see lots of references from previous films. Cant wait for the blu-ray trilogy to come out.
to another topic - has anyone been to the Meermin store in Tokyo? im heading there in October
I have. I can see why a lot of the crap there makes it to final sale. Some decent stuff though.
+1. Toby, some more ideas for you -
Also this jacket from the same site as the pants:
I'd disagree with the comment that you can't pair a linen jacket with linen pants. The one above seems to be the same fabric as your trousers (same mill) and would lend some coherence to your outfit in terms of texture, complimenting the sand pants well (wouldn't wear with your navy pair unless it looks 100% like a suit). As Romp suggests, pair with light blue shirt (tieless is ok, or knit tie if you have to); pink and lilac would also look good, as would checks.
Shoes I think pretty much only preference would be make them brown (black shoes would be too much of a stark contrast with sand/white chinos IMO). The full spectrum of brown suede would look good, as would tan brogues. Chestnut RMs would also suit.
And if you're worried about the transparency, wear Superman undies FTW.
Australian Financial Review Magazine has their annual Watch Porn issue out today.
Have not read back but do you mean a linen jacket with odd linen trousers? Linen suits are pretty popular (and should be more so in Australia given our climate...), so I don't see why you couldn't do the odd jacket/trousers thing with linen too.
I've always thought it is a real shame that anything other than *cough* "Four Seasons" wool suits are so out of place/unacceptable in Australia even in the height of summer. You almost never see Linen/Cotton... just sweat patches. I would be reticent to wear a linen or cotton suit to an important meeting in summer due to how uncommon they are... A tan gabardine suit is about as far as I've gone. Maybe I will try and break the mould this summer. I guess it doesn't help that linen/cotton suits tend to be in more summery/casual colours like tan, blogger blue etc. Maybe a navy linen or cotton suit could provide a good balance.
^^ That is basically the reason why I don't already have that PRL tan Bradford cotton suit.
My old RLPL tan gabardine suit worked really well for Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar, though I had to reluctantly onsell it to appolyon bc it was too small. If you can find one for a reas. price somewhere I think its a good balance between summer casual with the colour and formality with the gabardine (so it doesn't wrinkle as much as linen/cotton). Got it for about $950 on sale at the Melb RL store. I might try and find another in my size for this summer.

Just bought some socks for the (potentially future) father in law, and one of Jason's excellent Blue Plaid ties for myself all from Henry Carter. Looking forward to receiving them! He's raved about Pantherella before, and bemoaned the lack of Australian suppliers - so nice one stocking them, Jason!
Would anybody know of a decent place to get some nice cuff links for him as well? He's a bit of a Mont Blanc fan boy, and I was thinking something simple in a silver with maybe a nice pearl or onyx or even carbon fibre inlay? Doesn't have to be Mont Blanc, but something roughly equivalent.
Many thanks in advice, e-Gents!
Cheers! He has a few very similar ones to that collection, I might have to check out Herringbone this arvo, and check out MontBlanc while I'm there.
Can I just say that I consider that everyone who doesn't have a custom Avatar picture is committing an act of visual terrorism every time they post.
