    Could it be because they are crap?

    J. Izzo in Hindley St. Lovely old guy, and does a good job for a very fair price. He has a sensibility that transcends fashion; stuff like sleeve lengths and hems tend to be at more classic SF-approved levels. He'll also tell you if something is or isn't worth doing.

    Try a breast pocket wallet if you often wear a jacket. Slimmer than a billfold, especially if you don't treat your wallets like a rubbish bin.

    I'm a big fan of the makr wallet I bought to replace a bifold I lost. I went with a navy angle wallet and I'm slowly getting used to a small, single pocket wallet. They're not cheap but the quality is very high. Nice thick leather and neat stitching. Chester Mox is a cheaper, similar styled alternative. Both of these options might be a bit too street wear for your liking but personally I love it.

    edit : I keep 5 cards and about $200 in cash in it quite comfortable, not sure if it would handle 10 cards without becoming a bit of a hassle to use.

    I would go for something like a 4 pocket card case. I found out that there are a lot of crap in my wallet that I think I need to carry, but when there is limited space I realise that they are really just a waste of space.

    Also anyone got their shoe trees and Sperry Topsiders from Endless yet? Some info on their sizing chart much appreciated.

    Not yet. I'm allegedly in the No Purchase Club this month, although I've pretty much blown it between the Hickey Freeman eBay blowout and the R&B sale on Ozsales. :cry: I can tell you about the shoe trees, as they are Woodlore which means they are identical to AE and Nordstrom branded trees. I have a pair of Nordstrom branded trees and I have been very happy with them.

    I'm a 9 UK in leather shoes and 10 UK in volleys/sneakers. I got 10US (so 9 UK) in sperry's and they fit well. in fact i could have gone down half a size as no socks make them a bit looser.
    I was in between sizes for shoe trees so got a Large and they fit in my various shoes fine. /noob info
    hope that helps though

    I have my school graduation dinner on Monday night and stupidly did not think to buy a suit. What is my best hope of getting one by then? (just a cheap one). If all else fails I will go to Mensland/Roger David (the only two places that have suits where I live...) but I would be happy to buy online from somewhere with next day delivery. Thanks for your help.
