    +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.

    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?

    lol!

    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.

    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.
