You tell em, mate!
Not specifically - I suggest you call Herringbone and speak to Christian. I mentioned that I had previously purchased C&J shoes from Pediwear.
It means that you can either wear a dinner suit (a "tux") or a dark coloured suit (preferably navy). However, if you own a dinner suit you should wear that IMO.
I actually went into American Tailors at lunchtime, and they were the same price as Pediwear. Bought a pair of C&J Lowndes (double monks) in black.
Nice, well done!
Slightly odd promotional video for merino wool. (NSFW - naked woman cavorting with wool fabrics.) [VIDEO]
Merino Wool from Wonderland Magazine on Vimeo.

Seems like Australian Wool Corporation version of When Harry Met Sally
I was with my wife one day in Bangkok and in the afternoon after walking say 3ks or something in the Thai heat we entered Bangkok Bootery and had her fitted for a pair of MTM snake mocs. Got back to Sydney and fitted one size too big. Straight to Vinnies. Yet all the experts say you should try shoes on in the afternoon after the feet swell a bit. That way you don't buy them too tight. Go figure.
I copped a lot of shit when I chose to do a semester of textiles in about year 10, but it has come in handy on quite a few occasions in the last 20 years....
Funny what just fluffing about around Style Forum make you notice on the streets.
Spotted a young Asian man on the way home in a nice navy DB suit. Likely bespoke. Also likely to be brand new as he appears eager to display those working cuff button holes and really conscious of dust falling on his suit. Too bad the slim mid brown clean toe derby shoes of his ruined the look.
Was it the colour of the shoes that you didn't fancy or the fact they were derbys? Personally I love brown shoes (not tan) with a navy suit, although black shoes also work.
Both the fact that they're derby and that they're more like a dark tan colour. I love to wear dark brown with navy myself.
