    I must have just snuck in, hope they don't cancel the order! Still, not a bad discount even without the free hankerchiefs.

    Just received an email from P Johnson re the opening of their new showroom in Sth Melbourne. Very happy about that - walking distance (or a short tram ride) from home!

    The city would have been more convenient I agree. On the other hand, I expect they have a sufficiently strong reputation, based on word of mouth and internet forums, blogs etc that they don't need to rely on passing foot traffic for business. As you are probably aware, Moray St is not a major shopping strip, although it is close to, and runs parallel with, Clarendon St.

    South Melbourne is only a short tram ride from the city. Definitely a menswear hub for Melbourne if you add Beggar Men Thief too.


    Do not think they are too worry about business. From my visit to Tom at the South Melbourne studio I got the impression they were fairly busy.


    Here is a link to the email for those who are interested - http://pjohnson.cmail1.com/t/ViewEmail/r/EAB2D4ABB7B50C89/CCF2E4F5A79EAB9F14399806BE9B4083

    ^^ I don't think they'd be too worried about not getting business from the average joe so having it in the middle of the CBD would only drive rent costs up anyway.


    I missed out too... surprisingly...
    Seems like Checky's the only one who got it.

    Think I did as well, but I won't count my chickens before my hankerchief arrives...

    Hmm, now it appears their entire stock has gone from the online store, showing nothing for me in any department using multiple different browsers! Bizarre.

    Sounds like a rush on pocket squares brought the company down…

    Azzaro and Patrick Johnson on the some lunchbreak...that could be dangerous.
