    Can anyone comment on Herringbone's knitwear? I'm interested in the cardigans but not sure about their quality and it would be great to gather others' experiences with their wares

    There's a range of PL on the right just as you enter. Smallish collection of stuff from memory, some blazers, overcoats a knitwear. Near the men's suits there were some PL shirts.

    I didn't know it was PL kit until I picked up the perfect sports coat only to discover the $2000 (sale) price tag.

    This was at sale time, so it might have changed.

    You know I actually have Fatso the Fatarse Wombat as inspiration when I was making suggestion on the tie. :laugh:

    What I think is that it should be quite unique and distinct from what's available for the masses and reflective of SF AU members attitudes compared to the rest of the forum: sartorially interested, but not taking ourselves too seriously at the same time.

    So that's why I was thinking about a majestically imposing Beau Brummel Wombat.

    I will PM Jason to lodge my interest.

    They're good. I don't know what the quality is like this season, but I have lots of their knitwear and all of it is good. There was a season where the production run fit large (i.e. an M more like an L, for example), but it no way affected the integrity of the garment.

    It's a lot more affordable now than it used to be, as well. I think the merino knits are only $149 now and they're likely to go on sale, much like the rest of Australia.

    Full disclosure: I used to work for Herringbone for years.

    Thinking having the SF AU emblem positioned at the bottom of the front blade like in the BB ties?

    This reminds me of the time back in the early 70s (I think) when there was a push for Australian diplomats to wear a "national dress" to assemblies such as the UN, in response to the adoption of national dress by Commonwealth representatives at around the time of, and shortly after, decolonisation.

    But rather than a Boubou or similar, the Australian version was comprised of a Benaud-esque flared safari suit replete with wattle sprig in the lapel.

    Have you been reading my PM I sent to Jason? Because I mentioned exactly that.
