Regents tailor on queen Street is good.
Some of us are keeping it real in Loakes and Uniqlo #menswearpool,shallowend
+1 on Regent. Tony is very nice, very knowledgable, very patient (my last trouser alteration had three fittings) and, in spite of this, very reasonably priced.
Wore a bow tie in court today. On the Gold Coast. Zero fucks given.
(tie and button-down Polo, suit Herringbone, PS from G. Inglese)
I have no shortage of compliments on my ties, including op shop ties that I got for $5 or less. I don't wear rubbish, and people don't know where it came from.
Recent tie finds at op shops include Charvet, Zegna, Dunhill, Canali, Drakes, Corneliani, Versace etc. All very wearable. Why pay full price?
Fuck yes - well played.
Because you have already taken all the good ones from Melbourne's op shops.
In other news, the grade sixers had a mock Parliament last night. Gave the boy a shirt, jacket and tie to dress up in. Just before leaving he asked if I had a hanky for his jacket pocket.
Mandatory blue tie goes without saying?

Second photo shows the colour a bit better. PM me if you're interested.
I love Uniqlo's stuff. The BD oxford that I'm wearing today has been used and abused so much, and I love it.
I think I said before, that I like to mix and match things from the shallow end and the not so shallow end. Some things are worth investing in, others are worth saving your pennies on.
Blue and white stripe. No indication of his politics though.
Churches comment is good; heard they used to be great before Prada, when I say great I mean GREAT!
