    Speaking of DJs shoes, probably the best value there were sone suede Italian Milana brogues for $68.

    My shirt purchases were from the DJs store in Market St (Sydney). I looked in at their shoe section while passing. Loake Design (more directional, Goodyear-welted, India-made line) were discounted down to around $270 from the original price of around $450. I already have a pair of these - which are excellent as daily wearers - so I didn't jump.

    Milana are crap. Avoid with extreme prejudice, although at $68 I suppose you could buy a pair to wear once to your mother-in-law's funeral.

    This question has probably been asked, but where are the good shoe stores in Sydney? Melbourne has a few. Apart from a few CJs out the back of Herringbone, there don't seem to be any shoo porn merchants in the Emerald City.

    Even Shanghai has a Santoni boutique...

    There is Joseph's, Henry Bucks and Herringbone, just Church's and Loakes, but at nearly double the price you get from UK, online stores, like Pediwear, So I just try the general size in store, and inquiry online, and buy all of my shoes online. I just don't think there is enough of a market in Australia, all of my work mates wear dress shoes, but to them, Florsheim is like a top brand since it has its own boutique, and spending more than $200 on a pair of shoes is unbelievable.

    Need gloves asap! My hands are freezing out of control and I still need to type/write. Where can I purchase some good clothes? (saw someone talk about a Dents sale before but I have no idea where to get them since it seems you can only get them for wholesale on the website)

    Mr. Porter is having a sale on cashmere lined Dents, hand sewn. I just got a pair in the mail, perfect.

    Not seeing the sale: http://www.mrporter.com/Shop/Designers/Dents

    Certainly not $25 like someone mentioned earlier.
