    :D

    Harrold's have completely changed their layout. Okay, it's been a while, but the downstairs is now what I call the "Kanye West" floor. T-shirts with longer backs than fronts for at least $700 and mainly high end street wear (though some contest whether such a thing is even possible).

    My girlfriend told me yesterday that they now "design" dresses to be grossly longer at the back and they're called mullets. I don't think she's going to get one, but if she does, I'm going Patrick Bateman, I swear. They're so ugly!

    Completely off-topic and please pardon my blatant flogging attempt, but will happily sell the J Crew trench (see my signature) for $75 to any Aussies (including postage). Retails for $200+ over in the US.

    And something I've wanted to get an opinion on for a while here - what are all your preferred choice of weekend footwear in the summertime?

    I simply cannot wear any shoes sans socks. Gives my tender feet blisters.

    I agree that shoes without socks is objectionable and unhygienic, so I own some of the Falke ones above as well.

    Harrolds has some great stock for sure but the prices are eye watering, especially when not discounted. Henry Bucks is not much better and nor is American Tailors (which stocks Isaia) I'm afraid! Not what our friend wanted to hear I realise!

    Out of interest, are we getting anywhere close to another AT sale? My shoe fund is starting to burn a hole in my pocket.

    What's up with Oxford's sizing? Tried to fit into a pair of 78cm pants (I normally wear 30"-32" pants) and I could only manage to pull them up half way without a struggle. And the waist band is at least 2" short. And no it's not because of vanity sizing, I've actually lost some fat with diet change and increase in exercise.

    That said, kopped a polo from them with my $25 gift card.

    You should try Sportscraft , now, are we living in the land of the munchkins? somehow I have gone from a L, last year and the last shirt I recently bought was XXL and none of it is due to weight gain. And in terms of pants I have gone from 38 to 42WTF? Mind you my Bills Khakis at size 38 fit like a glove.
