    My two favorities - Clothing and Advertising http://mumbrella.com.au/mj-bale-film-connects-aussie-cricketers-with-sheep-77917 MJ Bale film connects Aussie cricketers with sheep A short film for the tailor M.J. Bale shows how the suits of Australian cricket team are made from wool from sheep reared on the same grass as the turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground. The agency behind the ‘Graze on Greatness’ campaign was Whybin\TBWA Sydney. As well as a film, the agency has created posted ads. M.J.Bale founder, Matt Jensen said: “We wanted to do something unique. Something that would make The Australian Cricket Team not only look good, but also feel good too. If these suits help the team physically, mentally or metaphorically feel like winners on their way to the West Indies, then it’s all been worth while.”

    All looks ok - if it was me, and it isn't, I'd wear the Drakes Challis from top pic with bottom outfit and bottom ties with top outfit - if that makes sense.

    ( actually I'd probably wear some other of my ties but thats not what you have.)

    So MJ Bale dresses the Australian Cricket Team? That's some step up from Peter Jackson on AFL team :laugh:

    Attending a wedding on Saturday. And I think it's time to lose my pocket square virginity as oppose to masturbation that occurs when I only pull it out when no one else is around.

    Makes perfect sense, FXH.

    Done it before, and like the look as well. :)

    Hope that helps.

    Great suit CEP. I like both ties but actually prefer the Grenadine TBH; not too drab at all.


    I have a pair of Grenson shoes (from their sadly defunct Rose range) in burnt pine. It's a fantastic colour - not too dark at all.

    Thanks for the replies, i've emailed Grenson direct and TheCloakroom in brissy about grabbing a pair, waiting to see if they ship to Syd.

    Anyone have any experience with Austen Brothers? They are coming to the office soon and their prices aren't too bad.

    Just bought some boxer shorts (new of course), one pair is the wrong size but its not worth shipping back to the US. Anyone want them for $15 shipped within Australia? They are size 42, true to size.

    When I was fresh out of uni I use to buy shirts there. Lovely family who ran it and were so helpful and chatty to anyone that would come in.

    The owner passed away last year or the year before and many of the offices around the city sent flowers etc as they were such a genuinely nice bunch

    Sorry but don't know their offerings these days haha

    The Cloakroom used to have really good prices for Grensons - in fact, that was the best and pretty much the only good thing about them, at the risk of sounding rather harsh - but their prices have increased quite a bit in the last year or two. It will be interesting to see how the Cloakroom's prices compare to Grenson's prices.

    Also, don't forget that places like Pediwear also stock Grenson shoes, and will deduct VAT when shipping outside the UK.
