Suit shop in the Strand Arcade

Travelling tailors Suit Shop have been shaking up the market since last year, trying to bring Aussie guys a decent suit for under $1000 mark. We used them last year for a client, and it came in just shy of that mark for a made-to-measure suit in a beautiful Zegna cloth.



This year, they have set up a more permanent space in the Strand Arcade in the Sydney CBD. It’s a wonderful space designed by the equally talented other half of P Johnson, Tamsin Johnson. It has super spacious change rooms, which is very different for dudes.



For all those guys investing in their first suit, or even for those office workers who have never had a well fitting suit, I would highly recommend making an appointment. Understandably you could pay $1000 for a pretty decent suit, but when you get one that’s made for you, you’ll never go back. Sydney is a great place at the moment for choice in suiting. With Suit shop as an entry point, you’re well on your way to being the most dapper guy in the office.

Joseph FordJoseph Ford’s landscape photography would be spectacular on it’s own, but when paired with fashion photography, a new concept is created with the juxtaposition of large aerial photographs merging with the fine, intricate details of fabrics.
Train-lines run into zips, and tears in jeans into clouds, turning what should be two highly contrasting photos into cleverly thought out and composed pieces. As well as being quirky images in their own right, the merging of two such different elements of the images leave the viewer contemplating potential similarities in other aspects of life that would not usually be paired together.7sobm : facebook | tumblr

Macpac vintage camping backpacks



Well it looks like Macpac have cottoned on to the vintage camping trend that has been going for the past few years. I’ve been trying to hunt down some vintage Macpac gear since seeing some pics floating around. I think it would be awesome for Aussie/NZ labels to tap their archives for some inspiration as there was so much great stuff back in the day. I’m sure with today’s tech upgrades and yesteryears aesthetics this stuff would work super well today both in the bush and in the city. Just seeing this stuff reminds me of walking through leech infested bushland for a lousy silver achievement for the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. And Alby Mangels. Remember Alby Mangels?

This stuff is super affordable, and if you become an MWC member, you get 30% off! Bargain.

If you’re looking to step it up a notch though in terms of quality I would go for Altadena Works. Altadena Works is a collaboration between amazing Australian artist Ricky Swallow and Ryan Conder, owner of the men’s boutique South Willard. Swallow, is an avid collector of vintage 60s and 70s outdoor gear, mostly made in the US. Disheartened by these older brands moving their production overseas, they sort to create a product that was high in quality and produced in the US. These bags are pretty much the shizz in terms of the right blend of nostalgia and today’s tech without the mesh water bottle holders. Shudder.
