J. Crew's prices make me sad all day.
Just back on the topic of denim.
I think Melbourne is actually quite lucky in the sense that there are many cheap street lables that offer many different cuts to people with a lot varying shapes, and despite other bits of clothing on their shelves being sub par their denim can be ok.
Besides this my personal favourites for denim available in Melbourne include:
APC- quality, simple and reasonable in cost, though the fit is terrible on me.
Dr.Denim- for $150 i think this is the winner for cheap denim in aus. Its simple, lasts (I've had mine for close to 3 years with regular wear) and the color of the indigo is nice.
Edwin- This used to be a big favourite of mine i have several pairs that i bought when i was working at Dakota on Chapel back in the day, and red line selvage denim for $215 i don't think you can go wrong.
Levis- I used to be a massive LVC fan, i owned about 6 or 7 pairs, all $500 or more, the more normal american LVC i still have but i sold the japanese LVC I've gotten rid of. All in all great quality denim and great stories. However nowadays I no longer have the intrest in denim that i once had, though i still like the cut so I like buying Vintage orange tab 505's for the he cut of the rise and thigh thickness.
Cheap Monday- $90 jeans.
Also, has anyone tried Naked and Famous sold at Harrolds?
So pretty much what everyone else said
I'm up for a catch up as well
Anyone else on here from Brisbane? (this is my first ever post so bear with me)
Upon reflection decided to delete the post which bitched about Levi 504 jeans. And are jeans now cut that low on the hips? Last pair of jeans I owed were Levi 508 which are no longer made, merde!
Cross post after a week off sick -
Suit: Herringbone Sydney
Tie: Henry Carter Neckwear
Shoes: Carmina Brown captoe
There's a few and I'm sure they'll jump in soon. Welcome to SF!
Looking good, Jason. It's funny how the jacket and trousers look like they're two different colours just because of the lighting.
Yep, With the 50% sale I grabbed a pair not long ago and they are a nice fit for me. They haven't aged much yet, 6 months and no wash with wear about 2/3 times per week.
Anyone seen this thread?
All I can say is:
No wonder Ethan and Patrick shun SF like the plague; and Graeme has all but stopped posting...
Which one's did you get? Skinny Guy or Weird Guy? And, which particular denim?
I get the impression most of us here shun most of the rest of SF these days!
What's with guys in Sydney only doing up the bottom button on their jackets... CRAZY.
^^ The Furo vs Parker thing?
Parker wins because applying the same MC way of dress to SW&D casual is all sorts of fail.
Everything has it's place.
About why most MC is so lame: just have to look into any of the how to dress for interview threads.
Prescription is always:
Charcoal or navy, notch lapel, double vented suit, and black cap toe oxfords. Any deviation from that will mean that the candidate will have no chance of getting hired - peak lapel is just so damn flashy like he's trying to one up the interviewer!
