    The last looks nice, similar to the simpson last for Carmina, and a nice slim waist.

    And wear those G&G's for Christ sake! Shoes that nice are too good to sit in the box at home!

    My latest acquisition. Crockett & Jones Westfields in dark brown.

    Great service from Christian at Herringbone. Not only did he give the shoes a polish before I picked them up, but he also gave my current shoes a polish while I was there. You don't get that on the internet.

    Ducked into Luisa's in Collns St today. They have quite a lot of Church's at 60% off. Might be worth a look.

    Hi Guys,

    I usually look at the streetwear and denim thread as i've been a student for the past three years and have had no real need for the kind of stuff discussed most on the MC forum. But, i've just started a new office job and all i've really got is my old work clothes from when I cared a lot less about clothing. I'm not really in need of a suit just yet, i'm all sorted for decent shoes (will be wearing Alden and Florsheim longwings most of the time) and my shirts are just passable. What i'm in desperate need of is some nice slim cut trousers so I don't feel like such a derp in the crappy baggy looking ones from Myer I got a few years ago. So any recommendations for brands I can get in or around Melbourne in the $80-$130 range would be very much appreciated. I usually buy my clothes online, but I feel like I should try these on as i'm far less familiar with this kind of clothing and the terminology mentioned online.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok tried on the suitsupply polos.

    15.5inch neck "extra slim" would fit somewhere slightly looser than a medium "custom fit" PRL polo and not disimilar to some of my old Boggi long sleeve polos. The full cutaway colour is nicer imo than the kent wang polo collar as its stiffer and sits up even better.

    Overall quality id say a bit better than kent wang, fabric is thicker but finishing is still better on a RL polo.

    Hi guys

    Long time lurker first time poster.

    Quick question Charlie's Wardrobe. Just wondering if the Cottonwork button-down was the standard button-down or the 'button down roll'.

    Cheers.

    where is Luisa's? Never heard of it.
    and what Church's do they have? I've got some Custom Grade single monks that I got in Paris, which I made the mistake of buying at the end of the day after walking around for 6 hours, so they're 1 size too wide.
    I still wear them (they cost me about 550 euro.....), but the fit's not ideal....
