    I've been thinking: Do more luxurious ties really make a better knot?

    Blaq tie I got as Christmas gift:

    Seems perfectly fine to me.

    Some do, some don't I find. A cheap tie made in China for $3 may still have a wide width at the knot area and give a good knot/dimple. On the other hand I've had higher end ties from affiliates here pre Henry Carter, (which I won't name) that knotted very poorly and I gave up on them.

    The official SF 2x4 knot. Also wearing point collar today. Ran out of ironed shirts - my normal spread and cutaway collars. I notice that for me, for point collars to work, they need to be rigid. Tried on some of my older shirts with soft point collars and it's quite a mess.

    Has any Melbourne members made mention of the pop-up shop at 84 William St? I just popped in briefly on the way past – looks to be Stockland and Sons stuff mainly.

    Gents. Is there an exception to not buying anything during ban period when Oxford is waving $25 voucher in front of you and you are looking at something that's currently priced at $33?

    Why would you buy anything from Oxford?

    Normally I wouldn't. Just every 6 months or so they send over a $25 voucher and I pick a beater piece to wear for <$10. Oxford Luxury range shirts aren't too bad to be honest. Currently their Luxury shirts use Canclini shirting and have MOP buttons.

    I think sub $10 purchases can be considered rounding errors and ignored.

    I managed to get two belts that were on sale at $12.50 each ($50 - 75% I assume) for $0 with one of those vouchers once. Pretty shitful belts, but the price was right.
