    Judging from the price and the offerings from 'designer labels' we pay a premium for the lack of it. :laugh:

    Try GAP if you are in Sydney. 100% merino around $35 each on sale, and decent enough.

    Regarding the tie: looks ok, but I would check B&S first. Or search for Lands End on the 'bay.

    ^ I got mine from Ralph Lauren outlet for $25. A great buy if you can find one.

    that much is certain. like some others have said its hard to find an occasion to wear that as a suit. I could find occasions to wear it as a jacket easily

    Sure. But if its too bold to be in any english (suiting) book I could find I'd suggest you've just found your reason for the sales. Note that I'm using books here to approximate for the population.

    re: Using it as seperates. Certainly easier than as a suit, however it still wouldn't be my favourite pattern there either.


    Re: cheap ties yes B&S and the Bay. My only caution would be to make sure you buy STAPLES* don't get suckered into the "deal" -- This allows you to
    a) Purchase less ties
    b) Reduces the chance that you'll hate the tie later.

    *Try to keep the quality up so you'll be happy to keep the tie.

    Noticed a lot of sales in the past week Sportscraft, CR and DJ's big time discounts on jumpers both merino and lambswool. One CR jumper I saw at myers was $45 down from $109.

    [ATTACHMENT=3002]tumblr_m5jeslIvuY1qc1spyo1_500.png (247k. png file)[/ATTACHMENT][ATTACHMENT=3003]tumblr_m33mb5aUw21qc7z81o1_500.jpg (116k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]Question for the Melbourne boys! (I've done a search no luck unfortunately)

    I'm heading down in a months time with a few mates, I'm 23 work in debt restructuring/insolvency, for some background my suits are P Johnson as are most my shirts and I love my C&J shoes, Hallam FTW ( My mentality, I'd rather a few nice items instead a lot of shitty ones which means I'm very picky) sadly I've lost my old coat $800 gone :( and I can't find anything reasonable that suits my style/taste I looked at Burberry's current range and its way over priced and frankly disgusting.

    I've attached a few photos of what I'm looking for or anything similar. Now My question is could anyone happen to recommend a few stores to check out (prefer boutique but its not a biggie) around the Melbourne CBD as far as Toorak etc



    Or am I dreaming?

    Thanks a lot guys

    I haven't checked the place out but the new Paul Smith shop on Collins Street might have something.

    Not sure how useful this is but this was my quick summary of Melbourne menswear shopping - http://linenforsummertweedforwinter...-man-i-saw-a-couple-of-places-that-youre-from
