    no sorry I don't. Most of the regular members I doubt will know either. I think you'll have your best luck elsehwere in the forum for this question.

    Ss cm match bp mesh ... Custom fit, match version of the big polo in mesh..

    I think that design is about 4 years old at least... Best trying some clearance/outlet sites.

    And i agree the street wear forum might have a better idea on these sport shirts

    So.. at this rather strange time of night when I should be celebrating my anniversary, I find myself contemplating what to do.

    Do I rebel and make a stand ?....or do I simply accept the status quo and suffer in silence?

    You see...my Dilemma is this:

    FOR 4 VERY VERY LONG YEARS I HAVE BEEN FORCED - AS PART OF MY EMPLOYMENT - TO WEAR A UNIFORM OF THE MOST CRINGE WORTHY YOU CAN IMAGINE...And I find myself at a loss as to what to do.

    Consisting of:

    Plain white Target business shirt

    Black Polyester/Viscose STUBBIES Trouser

    Black socks - sourced from $2 shop

    Black Florscheims of some sort from their seconds store

    Yellow Tie purchased in bulk from God knows where on the net.

    Black Double Breasted Blazer from Fletcher Jones

    This what you get when you work for a small time Business Owner that insists on supplying his staff with his idea of "good gear" and really only cares about his bottom line.

    Every day for the past 4 years I've felt like a freakin European Wasp.....enough is enough!!!

    So I need some advice here.

    Do I rebel, throw caution to the wind, and wear my own version of the uniform?
    If so what do you suggest

    Do I shred the ties in protest and make a stand...?

    Do I have a nervous breakdown and go on work cover?

    Do I quit and get a new job......(The work cover option starting to sound good)

    My apologies if this is all a bit vague..but right at this moment I feel like a Pit Bull that's chewing the Wasp

    SO WHAT DO I DO TO RECTIFY THIS SITUATION BEFORE I LOSE MY MIND...?....

    Turn those trousers into a pair of real stubbies, burn the rest, quit and wear those stubbies down to centrelink

    Romp, i'm surprised you suggested this. I would've thought you suggest Osqua don a handmade buotonniere to brighten things up [​IMG]

    Many years ago I wore suits to work daily and I did this for a number of years. I hated it. That was before I cared about what I wore generally - least of all work. Now I dress smart but very casual and I would kill to be able to suit it up daily. If I wear an Oxford shirt with jeans to work now, the developers think I'm going to a wedding or a funeral (I'm in IT).

    I can see your predicament but this is your job, if you want to wear who you like then go somewhere that allows it or start your own business. I wouldn't recommend doing your own thing without running it past he owner of the business. If it really bothers you as much as it seems to be then perhaps you should move on. It can't be nice having to dress in those clothes.

    Beggar Man Thief has an outlet stall at the South Melbourne Market where you can usually find a limited range of Loake 1880s for around $250.
