    well, it's not about getting away and my love for different shoe colours. it's an unwritten rule, imo.

    I dunno, I think I put outerwear in the basket of 'things not to buy online (unless I've tried them on irl first)', along with suits, odd jackets, and jumpers...

    Yes, that's a fair point. I have bought outwear online, but then again I am a bog standard 38 and it was a standard grey pattern/colour (Boglioli from ehaberdasher for the record). Not something to do unless you are prepared (and are able to) mail it back.

    Outerwear is ok to be bought online IMO as there is a little bit more margin for error compared to a suit. A little loose allows it to be used as overcoat and a little tight allows it to be used for casual outings instead of a suit or sports jacket.

    True. I have ridiculously long arms so sleeve length is always an issue for me, but I guess other people don't have that problem...

    Well, that settles it for me. I couldn't possibly get away with that.

    I don't think that's true at all of Australia. I've worked around banks for decades, and there is no issue wearing dark brown shoes; I've even worn light brown shoes to work no problem. I actually doubt that many of my colleagues even look at people's shoes. If they did, I would have thought they'd be more disturbed by the brick-shaped black shoes that haven't seen a polish in years than a well-maintained conservative dark brown pair of shoes.

    I'm sure about 80% of people who work in my building wear brick-shaped slip on shoes either in a tan or black colour.

    A fair number of the people I see when I walk from Southern Cross Station to get to work wear slip ons, extremely pointed or square-toed shoes. You can't really blame them though - not everyone is going to go and spend a few hundred bucks on shoes and judging by the offerings at the local shoe shops, that's pretty much what's on offer.

    But it's so true what Patrick and Tom have respectively said about the scene in Australia though, that "no Australian men have role models for style" and so "Australian men tend to dress like kids".
