1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have a question for fellow aussie SFers: When wearing a suit in summer, do you wear an undershirt under your dress shirt?

    On one hand it would be nice to have something to absorb the sweat and prevent it staining the suit, on the other hand it would make you sweat more.... ???

    If so, what style/brand? Bonds v-neck?


    I appear to be alone here, but I never go out without an undershirt - for suits, casual wear, whatever. To me it's the equivalent of going out without underwear.

    When I'm suited up, I like to wear a standard white cotton crew-neck. Bonds mostly, but I got a few Calvin Klein ones out of curiosity and they're very comfortable/breathable. I never get sweat patches or stains. I think that the undershirt is the way to go.

    Hi guys could you please help me out.

    http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/...cln--15/Detail

    Shirt size says 38 EUR, which would correspond to a size 28 US if my understanding is correct. My chest size is about 37" so i'm totally confused because they have max 46 "EUR"

    This, on the right, is now what Black Tie means apparently.

    I will be in Darwin in 4 weeks and I heard they have lots of crocodiles there. So I was wondering where I can buy some nice crocodile goods. Thanks in advance.

    Hi guys, David Jones is having a sale on business shirts and i wanted to get an opinion on which labels are good bang for buck.

    For shirts i have tried to compile a list based on advice from people:
    Abelard : Very Good
    Ganton - Good
    Van Heusen - Europe cut is not bad
    Hardy Amies - Good
    Baubridge and Kay - Poor
    Rhodes and Beckett- Good but overpriced
    M.J Bale - ?

    Is this the general concensus of this forum aswell?

    i've found that lots of suits sold in australia aren't suited for the warmer months, ie too heavy, too tight a weave. the weave being too tight is especially true for business shirts. i also don't get why linen suits aren't more popular here.

    what weight suit are you wearing? tried ordering shirts from a HK tailor with an online store asking for a summer fabric?

    it's been said somewhere on the forum (can't remember) that you shouldn't sweat in the right clothes(unless you have an extraordinary sweating problem). pain the the ass aus has such a poor range

    I would not say from experience that B&K are poor but maybe expensive. Why not use the Lewin deals that are around from the UK?

    Not defending the look on the left at all because it is hideous, but if that on the right is "black tie" I would want no part of it. In my opinion the look on the right is the formal equivalent of Ed hardy - slap a skinny tie and black suit on any inbred and all of a sudden they are "nailing black tie like James bond"???? A formal occasion does not mean wear a uniform for gods sake. If you have no sense of originality at least wear a tux so you can't fail.

    ...I remember thinking pretty highly of James bond suits, don't really remember him wearing skinny lapels and an unbuttoned shirt outside of when getting down and dirty...

    Are Jantzen better value or higher level of workmanship?
