    Not Furo Vs Parker specifically.

    Just the whole idea that what you wear has to meet the approval from supporters of both paradigms (MC and SW&D), when the underlying philosophies are so different. Like I said: This is what keeps people like Ethan Newton and Patrick Johnson from bothering with SF.

    Anyway, who cares?

    Wear WTF you want.

    Here endeth the lesson.

    In other words - because everyone else in Australia overcharges you dopes down there, we think we can get away with creaming you on price as well.

    Capitalism at work gentlemen.

    I have a pair of the Naked and Famous Slim Guy fit that I got tapered a little bit, (as I really am a slim guy) that I have had since august last year - they are wearing well and the rise is high enough. When I went to pick them up from Andy at RHD they seemed to have a variety of great colours mine are a little bit lighter than normal indigo.

    ^^ However there also the beauty of Laissez-faire capitalism where we give J. Crew the bird and buy elsewhere. There are alternatives out there. They can go get stuffed.

    Sounds good Gerry, count me in, subject to the usual caveats.

    Fresh in the post - C&J Chiltern chukka boots in snuff suede courtesy of A Fine Pair Of Shoes:

    and a fit pic:

    It's funny how the perspective can make a shoe seem elongated or not.

    Afternoon Gents,

    Can anyone recommend where I could buy some Australian winter (Sydney) weight appropriate flannels?

    Epaulet have a nice looking pair of oxford mid greys but not in my size and they advise that they aren't making anymore... They do have dark charcoal in my size but I'm not sure what I could wear these with - they don't seem quite as versatile being very dark?

    Keen for advice as usual!
