Tea Leaf or more australian - "They call him Hydraulic Jack"
Five finger discount?
This is all going way over my head.
Am I the only one?
Cockney rhyming slang.
Slang for shoplifting.
LOL, thanks Gerry
Perhaps we should have these English language lessons away from the Forum.
EMGreenfield in Sydney might sell you some buttons. If you cant tell the difference between horn and plastic then no point paying for it These days the horn buttons are usually from buffalo or deer. The look, feel and "life" of a horn button sets it apart from plastic.
That osaka cut one is nice - love the lapel proportions and the shoulder fall.
Well, I for one won't be using rhyming slang again and I don't think I'm on my Pat Malone.
I could be in a job interview one day, and the senior partner could start snickering:
Partner: *flicks buttons* are those plastic? What else about you is fake?
Remove this buffoon.
*I get dragged out*
Forever stuck in community centre ADR

OR he could think ... damn we dont pay this guy much.. he has to wear plastic buttons zomgwtfbbq!~ lol
on the bright side, at a community centre ADR you wont need horn buttons.
I got my Owen and James red chambray shirt today. As I was opening the packaging, I looked in and thought to myself "I didn't order a white cotton shirt. ROB?!?!?!?". That's when I realised O&J send out their shirts in very nice cotton bags
In any case, this is a very well made shirt and I'm looking forward to putting this to good use over the coming months. I put a little more detail up on my blog: http://gezzaseyes.tumblr.com/post/35170937474/arrived-today-i-finally-got-around-to-ordering
The handwritten note was also a very nice touch. Great job, Rob and Cam!
If you haven't taken advantage of the sale, do consider it - I'm glad I did!
I look forward to seeing a photograph of you wearing your Owen & James red chambray shirt with your Holland & Holland tie and your P. Johnson suit! :tounge:

Ethan’s writing is very influential. When something is written clearly and in a simple manner it can be convincing. Considering he owns his own shop I can see why he is telling us not to chase the bargain J. I am sure he gets annoyed being constantly asked when the next Armoury sale is on. I can tell Rob is tired of me asking when the next O&J sale is on.
I can enjoy his interpretation of luxury and value. I had never considered value in the way he has. I had always considered value as the differential between the quality and the price paid for that quality. If the quality is exceptional, and the price is low, then in essence, you have found great value. However, his perspective is comes from a completely different place. Value is the extra you pay to get what is good – value is bought, not given.
I think both perspectives have their merits. In a pragmatic world a pragmatic approach is needed. You don’t buy clothes from Politix, because you think the construction, fabric and style is terrible quality – for the price paid. If that is not a measure of value, then what is? A few pages back when I was talking about Loake 1880s, someone said, “they are a great shoe for that price range” – this is value to me: quality at fair value.
I like your nonchalant attitude to clothing, an attitude I would like to adopt myself.
Thanks for the suggestions guys. I am trying a second hand P Johnson cotton jacket on tomorrow. If it fits I will take it. If not, I will walk over to Herringbone and try their two cotton jackets. If none of those are a go, I will try Sports Craft et al. I like the Boglioli jackets Pink Socks, but they are outside of my price range at this stage.
