    Not those - do not like the design. But a pair of pink Tods or Car Shoes - sent them my way. Got a pair in purple - bringing them out again with the good Melbourne weather.

    I've been wearing a lightweight red bomber/harrington type jacket for the last couple of weeks on the nicer days we've had. I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't see in black and white

    So on the linen for summer note, where are the places to look for linen/cotton jackets this year? I like the look of the POW check jacket herringbone have at the moment. Where else should I look? Is this something Azzaro has?

    Just bought some nice mudbath zin linen to have made up at the closing sale of the Wynyard Branch of Tessutti. Lovely colour of muddy brown with a red base/ tone that has got the Sartorialist in Milano look. Next trick is to have it made up. Might just send a favourite fitting DB suit to BKK and have it copied as is.

    I've never seen anyone wear those in the UK. They're shoes, they get wet. The soles wear out a bit quicker if they don't dry out but that's about the size of it if they're looked after.

    Think thats bad the whole of the public service in Canberra wears black, and this was before the GFC, looks a greek grandmother convention. And I used to wear a fair bit of black but not anymore.

    Looks like they've removed all 'Hankerchiefs' from that section now.

    that's only happened in the last hour or so. I had a look, went and got a coffee, and came back to order one and they were gone.....

    Hey guys

    I recently purchased a fair few Herringbone and MJ Bale suits off a great fellow member.

    I was once this size, but apparently no more. Unfortunately my tailor has said if I alter them enough to fit, its going to ruin the silhouette and cut. If there are any 38Rs interested, let me know

    Thanks
