    What you think the APS works a 7 hour and 36 min day? Maybe in Melbourne but I have yet to see it in Canberra.:lol:

    I like the look of this, a really great idea. I would love to see some dress/ cutaway polos too, I got a bit obsessed with them after seeing Finamore in Pitti.....

    I might be late to the party, but congrats

    Friends of yours or friends of ours?

    Love the entrepreneurship of people like Jason and Romp. Great to see. Also think the wiki is a great idea.

    I would like to be involved, amazing idea. I have photography skills and other #menswear ninja skills.

    It might work well as an unique blog. A sartorial guide to Australia

    Thanks - i like how you think! I also liked the Finamore range of long sleeve polos. Just in the process of tracking down a quality cotton pique and see how it comes up on our cut and im thinking probably in a popover/halfbuttoned style.

    Yeah, but Finamore are just insanely priced....although beautiful.

    I picked up some from Boggi Milano (The best mid -range menswear store I have ever been to) and suit supply (which were not great quality but look sick).

    Good post fxh. Let's all hope Akubra hang on to their manufacturing in Kempsey now that SDK is gone.

    I went to dinner with Kent a few weeks ago...cool guy. I want to order a few of them, I like the orange/grey, I am skinny so they might be better for me. I had to have the suit supply altered everywhere. Ditto on that.

    Happy 1000th page everyone.

    On the subject of Boggi, I was tooling around on their website last night and on the order page it listed Australia as a shipping destination. Got all excited for a minute but a subsequent email exchange confirmed the are not shipping outside of Europe at this stage.

    whats with the sizing chart? do you think you could put a chest and shoulder measurement on there as a minimum?
    and $149 for RTW? why do i want to buy your shirts over some of the better known italian RTW shirtmakers, which i can buy online at a similar pricepoint?
