    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Can't you just request your company logo to be pasted on the heel of your shoes (where visible) and ask for a detailed invoice stating that your company's logo is on the shoe. When the shoes arrive just take the logo off :p.


    I am actually thinking of having company monogram on a shirt pocket which is sewn on to shirt with basting stitch and just remove pocket when arrives...

    I have no qualms with paying as little tax as possible, as it is going to the most inefficient user of funds in the entire country. Everyone should be encouraged to pay the minimum amount and not 1 cent more to the ATO.

    Here's where your tax money goes to: admin fees and red tape, overpaid contractors, politicians holidays. And sure as hell the politicians all write as much off in tax as they can, why should we do otherwise.

    Agree with you completely, but at some point you have to do a CBA; how much is your time worth? Why would you go to that trouble for a few bucks back on some cottonwork shirts? We're not talking offshoring your multibillions to the Caymans are we?

    Just give more to charity.

    Like Gina does(n't).

    Anyone know the difference (if any) between the Australian Brooks Bros shirts (as sold by Myer), and the US Brooks Bros shirts?

    I've got an Au one, but wondering whether I should buy from the BB US website.

    $50 US flat shipping fee?

    Costs? I know the majority of BB shirts are now made in Malaysia, there are some OCBD shirts made in USA.

    Myer sells Brooks Brothers shirts? I thought the brand at Myer was Boston Brothers.

    Not sure how Wickenby works where tax havens won't provide them with information. So basically, if you tell Wickenby, you get put on their radar. And if you don't tell them, Wickenby won't know as long as you keep it low key.


    The only Brooks Brother's item I've ever seen sold are their glasses frames. My mother has one and I was surprised when I saw the brand.

    Sorry, yes I meant Boston Bros. Ignore that comment!

    Are boston bros made by Rhodes and Beckett?

    If they're not made by them, there's certainly a very strong link there. I got a couple of the BB shirts at the last R&B warehouse sale.

    I did some research on the origin of R&B suits, and I'm about 70% certain they originate here:http://www.arafaholding.com/egypttailoring
    Boston Brothers used to be the exact same thing as R&B up until a few years ago. Was great as the suits were the same (floating chest piece) for half the price. This has changed though as the BB suits are now fused, but the styling is similar to the R&B classic fit.

    My Boston Brothers suits were bought at the R&B warehouse sale a year ago.

    I've got shirts by both BB and RB and I can't tell the difference. Maybe the collar is slightly different, but only marginally.
