    Yeahhh, see this is why I stopped buying jackets online, no matter how tempting the price.

    Guys just a heads up that we have put all of our cotton chino's on sale! Need to clear these before the shorts and pop-overs come in for summer. Prices cut by up to $50 to just $169 each. We think they are great value considering the quality. Handmade in our Florentine workshop and down to final sizing.

    Take a look - www.owenandjames.com

    That's fantastic, Rob. Have you got any suggestions as to what you would match the various pieces with?

    Thanks Gerry,

    the bright green chinos believe it or not are actually one the easier ones to wear - white shirt or white polo. When its colder throw on a navy blazer.

    Navy chinos - most versatile goes with most items

    Brown - 2nd most versatile - either whites or darker navy/grey/black on top will work.

    White pants - contrast the top - chambray shirt/grey jacket

    Red pants - I actually find these the hardest to wear - happy to hear other people's thoughts. Id say a dark colour up top.

    In terms of shoes I cuff the pants, no socks and wear a pair of my tod's in snuff suede or shell penny loafers

    Adidas Romas, that is if you can still find a pair.

    Does anyone here have any experience with Paul Taylor spectacles had a look at a light and dark tortoise shell pair that look ok priced reasonably, see there made in France.

    And in the Toyota Cup the Tigers, after 3 disallowed tries beat the Bulldogs 24-20 YES and Go The Pies.

    My personal faves are a pair of Lacoste Afron OD sneakers I picked up a few years ago. They are a leather sneaker with a single monk closure... Let me see if I can find a picture for you...

    Hmm, not sure how to post pics, but look here: http://www.hypedc.com/afron-od-white-red.html

    Cheers.

    Depends. If you are doing the whole "look at me preppy look" then almost anything goes - green, yellow, white, and good luck. Even bare ankles. I don't mind it - although few do it well.

    Other wise - Up top - White polo, Baby blue polo. Dark blue polo. Black polo. Faded blue OCBD. Blue /white gingham large table cloth check.

    On feet - Black suede. Blue suede. No shiny leather. No brown tones. Not many options.

    Jacket - faded pale blue. Or black.

    I like to wear red pants at night - less obvious.

    It also depends on the red - too much orange = fail. Faded to pink = great/easy

    Melbournites,

    Just found out about a shop at 53 Smith St Fitzroy called Double Monk - anyone been?

    Edit: Sorry, I should explain - the http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/ website says that as of August 2012, they're the stockist of George Cleverley shoes in Australia.

    So, anyone checked it out?

    I have took this jacket for alterations at North shore tailors at Hornsby Westfield. Getting chest , waist taken in. And also tapering the sleeves. Total damage $130. Sleeve length seemed ok. Showing 1/4 of an inch of calf. This old Italian guy seems like he knows what does ! I will report back in a week. He was really nice and a chat about work and things. He mentioned if I bring few jackets he can do better prices. What do you think about the price ? Did I get ripped off ?

    Anyway so far the jacket $97+Shipping $26 + Alteration $130 = $253 total cost !!
    Thanks and enjoy your weekend !

    If I didn't just get these Lindricks, I'd be all over this pair of Crockett and Jones Islays. They're almost impossible to come by these days.
