    Just wanted to know if any of the members in Melbourne have any experience with Genae?

    Was in there today, and they have some nice pea coats, jackets and knits at reasonable prices. They are also manufactured locally.

    Website is here: http://www.genae.com.au/ though all they have is a listing for the boxing day sale...

    First time I've heard of the place. Will definitely have a look sometime.

    Genae is next to Aquila. Aquila is next to store that has Versace.

    I've bought some t shirts and things from there before. also a shirt, now that i think about it. theyve all been good quality and i still wear them.

    they do a series of markdowns during sale season, so you can stalk the items you like until they come down in price

    Good to hear that the stuff is quality, and that they do the occasional sale, but I need a casual jacket, as most of my wardrobe investment of late has been on the professional side. Lets see how good my negotiation skills are!

    On a side note, and this is a stretch, anyone happen to know where in Melbourne their stuff gets made?

    no idea, i didnt even know they were made in melbourne.

    anyway, i havent bought any suits/jackets from them, so im not going to presume theyre fully canvassed or whatever other benchmarks there are for quality.

    Came across Genae last year when looking for a coat and was also told it was locally made, however the one coat they had didn't fit me very nicely. Not sure what the quality is like though.
