    Anyone heard of Jocent Royal shoes? They do mto for $280 and are goodyear welted. I saw Jared from A Poor Man's Millions wearing them. They seem very cheap for Goodyear welted.

    I've stopped caring/noticing where my tie's back blade ends, or which way it's facing.

    When you start caring less about these things, so do people around you.


    I just make sure the knot is right, and then I move onto more important things in life.

    Hahah!

    Seriously when the Hangover came out, I saw that film three times. A friend even skipped an exam at Uni to see it.

    Downloaded Hangover 3 the other night. Still funny, some great one liners, but doesn't touch the first film. But Carlos makes a cameo, and any film with Heather Graham in it is a-okay with me.

    Oroton has taken over the GAP licence in Australia.

    Wonder when they will start to roll out Brooks Brothers clobber as they have that one as well.

    That is true

    Oroton are assuming control of the 3 Gap stores in Australia this month - watch out for massive fire sales leading up to Xmas but keep in mind its wrong season stuff (i.e. they'll be selling the US's current autumn winter collection, despite the fact that we'll probably hit 40 degrees this summer).

    Brooks Brothers will open exclusively as David Jones concessions first, 7 are expected after Xmas but before June - no doubt they will have some opening specials and indeed this is the main sale I'm waiting for suit wise. Would love to score some black fleece or similar for cheap.

    I'm always getting emails from BB US for stuff on the cheap - they have a full canvas charcoal suit, horn buttons and all, for $480 USD here and a nice light gray mohair blend one with mop buttons here. If I only knew what block is good for me I'd be straight onto those - according to the suit quality hierarchy thread BB stuff is ok, I think thats adequate for me as these are work suits for me after all, day in day out kinda stuff.

    Keep in mind though that in both cases Oroton will run the local online business - not sure if they'll cut prices to the US equivalent... $480 USD is only like $515 AUD tops which is a decent price I think for a full canvas suit
