Happy 2015 Everybody!!!
Current situation in Australia is no tax on privately shipped goods under A$1000. However the gummint has flagged an interest in removing this and imposing GST on all imports. How they would police this is beyond me - would cost far more in administering it than any actual revenue reclaimed. However, the stated aim is to protect local retailers (i.e. to allow them to continue gouging us dumb Aussies with prices 30-60% higher than anywhere else).
I predict 2015 to be the year when the various struggling Government mail services start forging international alliances allowing them better control of goods shipments. Prices will go up, services will slow down. I'm recommending a "buy" on Fedex and DHL stocks.
Well, a flannel suit isn't for warm months or warm climate. That said, I don't think that the Minnis flannel wear much warmer than the Caccioppoli LP that you have. It is just harder and falls straighter.
Caccioppoli is a cloth merchant. They don't have a mill, they spec cloth from various mills (just like Drapers or Carnet), but always to very high standards of quality. Which is why tailors trust their offerings. Usually the mill isn't disclosed - it's just a Caccioppoli "branded" fabric. Sometimes, they ship the cloth with the originating mill's tags. That's the case for that pow flannel. It is made by LP for Caccioppoli.
My mother on law just spent a Formosa on Le Creuset. That's going to be some seriously overweight luggage. But SK marks up LC more than double. Some are gifts, I think.
Sorry, but what is it with Korean ladies and Le Creuset?! I had never heard of that place until my wife dragged me there.
Thx a bunch for the explanation. Sometimes, I find myself to be too clueless.
I knew that.*
*Actually, I didn't. Thanks for the info.
They are awesome and last forever. She got me an oversized skillet which is great as I generally prefer to cook for two days.
My mother loves them too and makes me bring them back from the UK of all places.
Hey, any thoughts? Imma not return them unless anyone condemns these.
I like every one of those pieces.
I'm glad I didn't pick too poorly, I think the designs are quite safe in a nice way, and while the quality is probably what I pay for I think it's fine for casual ties and squares. TM Lewin is not exactly a favorite of SF so I wanted some extra opinions, so thanks. =)
Return the gray tie (too light to be of much use) and black pocket square.
Sane talk, especially the dark square.
