    I have a navy, a grey and a charcoal so I'm pretty sweet. Trying to push my friends into getting it though.

    Top to toe op shop today.

    Suit: Zegna Trofeo. This suit has a fabric label saying “Woolmark Gold”, which I’ve not seen before. Anybody know what that is?
    Shirt: Finamore MTM (for a billionaire, actually - his name is on the tag).
    Tie: Stefano Ricci
    Square: Paolo Albizzati
    Shoes: Alfred Sargent (these are a touch big on me, so I will probably move them on).
    Belt: Dunhill

    My op shop scent was Prada Infusion d’Iris eau de parfum.

    Yeah all the time. Some guys have the shoulders for it, some dont. Same with light or uncanvassed jackets - they can collapse through the chest on certain body types and not great.

    Thanks

    The braided tassel and the dark green penny look great

    Good food for a good price. Looks like it worked in your favour!

    Couldn't agree more.

    DR can easily come across as snarky, but he means well.

    Good to hear.

    And good point about the jackets. Have seen that collapsed look where they end up looking more like bad cardigans than jackets.

    Some of the bestest groop names of all time came out of the Melbourne indie music scene back in the late 70s/early 80s -

    Thrush And The Cunts
    The Slugfuckers

    And, whilst not rude, this one was certainly odd -

    "*****,*****"

    Yep, that was their name. Pronounced "Cough cough". I only know this because I was acquainted with them. Great band too.

    While we're talking Melbourne bands the Cosmic Psychos had some great Aussie track names:

    Dead roo
    Go the hack
    Blokes you can trust
    Nice day to go to the pub
    Flyblown
    20 pot screamer
    Dead in a ditch...

    Have been meaning to watch Blokes You Can Trust.

    I think I'm still recovering from a Psychos gig 20 years ago.

    Reminds me of when Spoo sold those jackets with Bernie Madoff's name on the tag. If he could have proven they were actually Madoff's I always figured he could have made more money selling them as collectibles. Or, to people ripped off by Madoff, as voodoo doll material.

    When I first went to Melbourne there was graffiti going up all around Fitizroy, City Richmond South Yara. Proles, proles are the only hope. There was also News all over the place.

    I was staying with a mate whose brother was a Melbourne Uni academic. I remember this rave he delivered saying it was an Orwellian protest by some hard core leftist activists calling for change.

    Both turned out to be punk bands.

    Which is the better option as far as quality? CT or Mj Bale shirts

    I haven't looked at either for a while, but I suspect that it's much of a muchness.

    CT shirts tend to have fairly stiff collars and cuffs, which can be a downside if you like softer collars.

    MJ Bale shirts tend to put the stitching too close to the edge of the collars for my liking (as I like the edge stitching to be set back about 5mm), but that's subjective and probably just a sign that I'm too obsessive about clothing details. Some MJ Bale shirts also have some odd detailing, such as contrasting coloured buttonholes or contrasting, large edge stitching.

    The last time I tried on either was a few years ago, but at that time, CT's slim fit shirts and MJ Bale's slim fit shirts fit very similarly through the body.
