Meaty tax return...time to join the SF PJ suit gang
I've not had any experience but I know lots of people like and use woolovers. As I understand it the jumpers cardis etc are honest, wearable and value for money. Something you can't always say about other stuff. As far as dressing for academia etc, I have a lot of experience and a lot to say. Not got time now but you should check out ivy clothes and do yourself a favour and order the book 'The Ivy Look' free post from Book Depository. More later.
Fxh I was about to suggest to papa that he take a look at some of your previously posted ivy casual outfits for inspiration.
Recently I've been ditching suits for more of an ivy look - not intentionally trying to be "ivy" but when I think about it I've always had a bit of a scholarly style before I'd even heard of the Ivy League... If only I had the grades to match!
Look forward to your follow up. I'll even see if I can post some outfit pics myself if I get time. Could be educational.
As a student who mostly wears a sport coat, shirt, and tie I'll admit sometimes I feel a little bit like a twat amongst other students who are of the ratty t-shirt and denim kind, but I've decided to carry on. Although I'm asked why I'm dressed like this from time to time, I think it's subtle enough as there are many girls who treat the campus like a runway.
I think you're on the right track. Perhaps people on your campus will be better dressed than mine.
Saks 5th Avenue currently up to 70% off - still a few great deals left...
Does anyone know an exceptional tailor in Melbourne that can do milanese buttonholes?
LOL, sounds like someone from around here....
LOL indeed, that article is like a PR Ad. for English shoes and Andrew McDonald, targeting dress shoes customers.
A few months ago I decided that I would like to pay attention to what I wear, and thus have been reading up on the basics. Now I feel like I should get myself a pocket square, but I have no idea from where I can get one in Sydney. Any recommendations?
Who can tell me more about this brand. I found it in a local op shop and took some pics, it was fully canvassed, overall quite beautiful and for some reason reminded me of some old St Andrews made RLPL suits. Am I right here? Unfortunately was not my size (was a 54), but still very beautiful.
David Jones city, TM Lewin on King Street, Henry Carter online, and for cheaper but lower quality stuff, try Tie Bar.
Who's that handsome devil?
Oh God - want these shoes:
In other news, hope to see some Melbournites out tonight
Just further to my previous post, I'd like to know if anyone has purchased the Loake range with the Duke last? I have normal to narrow feet, so I think this would suit me. But the element of risk is that I've never worn this and I don't want them to be uncomfortable.
