    I'm keen to purchase a few of the Filson products (briefcase and travel bag), however their website doesn't sell directly to Australia.

    Has anyone purchased any Filson products locally in Australia? If so, I would assume they are all at an inflated price?

    Any feedback on the product itself of the process is appreciated.

    Cranes country store, which is a SF affiliate, ships to Australia and stocks Filson.

    I've got a 256 briefcase and it is excellent. Personally, I wouldn't bother getting anything larger. I got one with the optional handgrip, and I am very pleased that I did as it's nice to be able to fasten the straps together.

    I haven't ordered through Crane's but I have corresponded with them in the past and they were easy to deal with and responsive. I believe that they have an SF discount.

    In the Filson thread, there is regularly discussion on where to get good deals on Filson but I suspect that a lot of those places don't ship outside the US.

    I attend UNSW so I'm based around Sydney. I mainly shop around the CBD at places like DJ's/ Myers. I've seen some online MTM sites like Indochino but it seems like they have a lot of criticism so I've decided not to shop there.

    So guys, where should I go for a large selection to choose/try on denim in Sydney. Budget will be up to $300 too.

    Yes stay well clear of indochino, have a read of the thread on here about them, which should turn you off them fairly quickly. I'll offer 2 suggestions based on your budget. Firstly online, try suit supply, they have quite a lot of suits around 470 and the fabric are good but you obviously can't try them on. I've not tried them myself but have heard good things. My first suggestion though would to head up to the Herringbone outlet in surry hills, they have suits at 500 generally and you can try them on. I have a stack of their suits and coats and their cuts work well for me, so it will depend on your build but at least you can try stuff on.

    I bought my Edwin Sen Selvage jeans from Brooksfield in World Square. They sell some good stuff there -- Timex watches and sneakers from Pointer. Carhartt stock some decent denim. Across the hall from their store in the Galleries Victoria, Incu stocks Edwin, A.P.C. and some other good labels -- albeit marked up like all hell. Harrolds stock Naked & Famous. The Standard Store in Surry Hills isn't bad -- not sure what their denim selection is at the moment, but it was pretty good last I checked. They also stock Mark McNairy New Amsterdam from time to time. PM me for more recommendations.

    Hi guys, I haven't posted on here in a long while. But I just wanted to say thanks to the guys that suggested I go to Azzaro in Melbourne to buy a suit for my wedding. Picked up an awesome antichi telai suit, the staff and guy (I think may have been the owner?) that served me were an absolute pleasure to deal with! Thanks again!

    Eh I wouldn't say forget about Indochino. I'm usually a 36-38 but have the shoulders to fit a 42 so gave Indochino a test run. I think my last suit (which was posted a few pages back) was OK for a sub $400 Chinese online MTM.

    A lot of the people in that thread measured themselves incorrectly. Look at the TaT thread even, there are more bad examples there than in the IC one.

    I think it is ok and I guess you get what you pay for and yours is one of the better fitting ones out there. But it's a lottery, and to get technical for a sec as I mentioned when you posted it here are some issues with the shoulders and it also seems the left sleeve needs rotating a bit having a closer look. You also have a little too much hip suppression which is accentuating your slimness when combined with the waist suppression. Slightly (and I do mean slightly) more room in the hips would give you a bit of shape and balance it out again. Of course these are all things the average bloke on the street won't notice though.

    Anyway Im off track, I firmly believe anything beyond shirts that you have to measure yourself is very risky, as you pointed out with the other guys that stuffed up there measurements doing them themselves.

    After reading all the jeans talk around here, this (and reading what fxh wrote) was pretty refreshing and what I'm going to do: http://craftworkwear.blogspot.com.au/2010/09/you-heard-it-here-first-skinny-jeans.html

    I was also reading the Age and the photo used here caught my eye - it may as well be from someone's fashion blog. Two inch cuffs (in blogger blue?), split-toe derbies (of a sort) and no socks!

    The context makes me wonder if this is the general perception.
