    Should be able to find a Herringbone or Paul Smith suit around that price, if you're lucky with sizes.

    Yes there is no other store like David Jones, was in Sydney yesterday so went into DJ at Bondi Junction to check out the sale, hmmm, a few things caugth my eye but I was taken by the selection of jeans compared to Canberra, great I think, I should be able to ge myself a pair here and so as I look i notice that with all the brands the size only goes up to 38 WTF? As first I think I am mistaken but i went through the racks yes indeed only to 38, FM what is going on here.

    So I asked a staff member in the section and yes that's right we only carry stock to 38 so if you want larger sizes you go into the city.

    What sort of makreting move is this? Has DJ decided that the male population of the Eastern Suburbs are all buff fit trim males who stop wearing jeans once their waist goes beyond a certain size and so are no longer worth providing product too?. FUBAR I say.

    I think we should all chip in to buy fxh these double monks and this tie for his birthday. What say you? [​IMG]

    Today's trousers and shoes:

    Trousers: Uniqlo vintage chinos
    Shoes: C&J Coniston

    What I'm liking about these is that they could also pass off as cap toe derbies as well.

    That's bad luck. There were quite a few PS London suits at 50% off at DJs Melbourne his week.

    Guys any size 15s out there? I found a pretty nice Canali Exclusive shirt today at an op shop. Not my size, but I figured someone could use it. Happy to let it go for cost plus postage

    Herring Readings in suede and Loake Strands in burgundy arrived yesterday. For the guy that was asking, the readings are fantastic for $130 plus shipping.

    Hi,
    Just though I'd introduce myself to the australian section of this fantastic forum! I have been in the fashion industry for over 15 years in various roles from retail through production and now in bespoke, made to measure and premium alterations. I have a particular interest in suiting and formal attire and in the history of clothing.
    I am also a very avid fan of fine liquor! Look forward to conversing with you all over the coming months!
