    Yes, grey for me too, as Naka said goes with black tophat, like formal morningwear. Will reply to your PM shortly Jason.

    (Well done on wombat victory, Blahman)

    I'm enjoying the Chilterns very much but a lot of the time, whatever shoe I happen to be wearing becomes my favourite at that time. I find it hard to say I prefer one of them over the other. This is probably swimming weather for you!

    The Chukkas are definitely a very versatile pair of boots. Glad you're enjoying them - that's how it should be.

    I'm not sure anyone should buy that MJ Bale jacket. Burn it with fire, maybe :)

    I think anyone who shops for 36 sizes tend to get a bit desperate :satisfied:

    Try looking for something 48 to 50 then you know what desperate is.

    Reminds me of a sighting the other day in (wintry) Melbourne CBD. Orange driving shoes, no socks, tailored shorts, with formal shirt, tie and jacket. I'm hoping not someone here...

    No socks? Must have been fxh seeing how the other half lives..

    Haha, seriously though, how odd is it when you see pictures of a peacoat/all rugged up up top, and sockless at the bottom? Makes no sense.

    So upon bringing home my latest P Johnson commission yesterday (navy pinstripe), I have realised that I will need to make room in my closet.

    I am thinking of letting go of my Hugo Boss signature line 3 piece suit – it’s grey birds eye with stripes. I picked it up a couple of years back as an impulse purchase (RRP was $2,300 – I got it for less than 35% of that price). Funnily enough, after making the purchase I thought I would go online to see if I got ripped off, which is how I stumbled onto this forum. I understand that it is half canvassed - but have no proof to back it up.

    Any thoughts on what I should be asking for it? Should I just list it on eBay and put its fate into the hands of market forces?

    At least 48, 50 tend to stay around longer when things go on sale.

    36 can be very hard to find in Australia when a lot of brands for some reason only start at 38, and can never see many 36 on sale.

    Hell, I even wear socks and long PJs to bed these days.

    I'm fascinated with cats who wear thick parkas and such up top and shorts and thongs downstairs on these rainy winter days. Or vice versa . A wife beater up top and thick pants and boots downstairs.

    Or in summer the goths in black with 10 up docs or work boots and a leather jacket or full length coat.

    It being a very recognisable brand I think you'd be fine listing it at $1 if you employed the usual 'tricks' (listing on a Sunday night, great photos, good copy etc.).
