Don't write a H/Bone concession in Canberra off just yet. I still have a contact inside their who said that it may well happen in the future. They have pretty bold ambitions for expansion from what I hear. Still, for the 3 hour drive to Sydney, I find myself up there enough these days for it not be too much of an issue. There is also Ken Cook's, which have a bit of Zegna and Canali also and are well established. The guys in Blades are pretty snobby too and I must say John Hanna has gone down quite a bit in the last 5 years. Sorry (and no offence intended to anyone) but the staff in John Hanna creep me out somewhat. The man who served me was just too oily and unpleasant - kept thinking he was going to lean in an lick my neck. Dunno whether you got the Fast Show in Aus but tad too reminiscent of my experiences in JH The stock isn't good either, IMHO, though I'll obviously bear them in mind when I finally turn into an ageing, permatanned lothario (more Fast Show: ) I've done ok in the Blades sale on occasion - don't mind them in there, actually.
