    There seems to be a lot of suiting requests, so just a heads up that Robby Ingham Paddington is having 50% off all suits from today until Sunday.

    May be worth checking out if you are after something more fashion-oriented (Givenchy, Paul Smith etc) than many Australian brands.

    Odd time for a 4 day suit sale! Maybe they've heard Sydney is due for a stinking summer and have decided to flog the stock before the heat sets in.

    Can you tell me more about Robby?

    Their website is pretty shot.

    I don't know, this could be legit. They might be worried that they are being scammed by YOU. I would see if you can use PayPal - pretty sure you can get that back if it all goes pear shaped.

    Never ever use direct deposit. I'm sure you know this though.

    PS

    <<<<< got offered a new job today. However it's the kind where my all my clothes will be covered up a fair portion of the day!

    Still going to buy myself something nice to celebrate though...maybe a HC tie! Or more luxire shirts.... Hmm.

    Sorry for the self-congratulatory post! Well, not really, I'm stoked :)

    I have been trying to resist the temptation to go their 2 for $1000...I'm not sure if the sale would get me the suits for less than $500 each though...

    Thanks for the response. Lunch sounds great, I just returned from 3 months overseas and start work in a couple of weeks so from Nov onwards count me in.

    Cheers

    Contragulations!

    There are very few things in life that beat getting a great job offer. Enjoy it.

    Now to splash out!

    Only a few suits are being discounted further - to $350.

    From what I gather. I have had too much work and haven't been able to get down there.

    I have also decided to stick it out with a Navy Holland and Sherry MTM with extra trousers for slightly less than the two MJ Bale suits. Hopefully it works out.

    I worked there for 18 months as the menswear manager, so I can tell you a bit.

    Some cool labels but not SF approved by any means apart from a few of the Paul smith things. Good street wear like Comme de garçon, dries van noten, Rogan, Kris van assche and the like.

    The dries suits were awesome but very casual type suits. And the Comme fragrances were magic, I still wear the Comme 2.

    So if you want a MJ bale type suit it's not the place for it.

    Thanks all.

    More like this sort of thing though...

    And, since I will have to pop into Ludlows anyway... I can pick out a HC tie in person! It's all coming together...

    Im still open to doing a SF pair although only had two people interested.. Id need at least 8 people to make it worth while.
