    priceusa.com.au is what you're after.

    Having used both priceusa and shipito, IMO shipito is far better in most situations.

    Priceusa is an assisted purchasing service - i.e. if the retailer absolutely won't take your aus credit card/use paypal (most will take aus CCs even if they say they won't) then it's useful.

    For everything else, I would say use shipito.

    Herringbone in QVB Sydney had 30% off all ties last night - bringing them down to about $80. There were plenty of nice designs on the floor and they were all included in the sale. I picked one up - paisley of course.

    Not sure if the sale is still on but if any of you chaps fancy dropping in on your way back from a lazy Friday afternoon luncheon you might see something you like on sale.

    On another note, I'm liking the new season at HB, I think the theming for the new campaign is pretty impressive ("The Traveller"). Have to say though there wasn't much in the way of new season stock yet at QVB - perhaps the larger Sydney stores are stocking more at this stage? I also noticed MJ Bale has his new season range of suits out, though not much in the way of SCs or knits yet.


    Hi Prince,

    New season HB stock has arrived at Chifley and QVB!

    I know... the wallet has already been damaged... [​IMG]

    Lotsa nice looking goodies!

    Ayup.

    That HB.

    Maybe I'll just go back to calling it HBone.

    Too lazy to type the whole word.

    That attitude is Un-Australian. You need to be deported to Tasmania right away.

    Well "stupid" might be a bit strong, but I am feeling a bit conflicted about playing NZ given what is going across the ditch.

    Don't worry - I'm sure we'll let the All Blacks win the other World Cup.

    If we go into another rugby world cup as No. 1 and lose again I'll be pissed. Losing the cricket is ok... we expect that

    ...we tend to be very generous with the All Blacks that way - though less so when it comes to the WC.

    There are not many obviously New Zealandish members here?

    Don't see how Christchurch should have anything to do with how cricket is to be played.

    Herringbone is quite good during sale (sadly the shoes aren't on sale) and the same with Country Road for their shoes.
