In that case, in Europe, we still go out in shorts and are only using overshoes or socks when the temperature is below 5C. Same with the head
Different strokes for different folks – Australia is a warmer country & hence we are not acclimatised to the cold. But we have better tan-lines
Timing is everything my friend.
It’s On Sale: Allen Edmonds Factory Seconds
Allen Edmonds is having a sale on all factory second shoes and closeouts, with discounts ranging from 15% to 40%. That puts their black Park Avenue oxfords at $ 199 and brown Strands wingtips at $ 229.
As many readers may know, factory seconds are shoes that didn’t pass quality control, but the “defects” are usually incredibly minor (like a small nick at the heel or something). Most of the time, you can’t tell why the shoe was rejected, even on close inspection.
There are other deals, of course, but you’ll have to inquire. To do so, call one of Allen Edmonds’ outlet stores. We usually refer people to the one in Brookfield, Wisconsin, who you can reach at (262) 785-6666, but you can find other outlet stores by using the store locator at Allen Edmonds’ website.
When calling, you may also want to have their website ready so you can easily look up the names of models.
It’s the little things like hidden details, traditional post, heavy card, cloth boxes, hand written notes, stories & unexpected gifts that make the difference in this world of #DressedByInternet generation..

It’s turned to summer here in Los Angeles, so I did a quick inventory of my summer hats. One was a bit too tight, and one had a grease spot on the brim. I hopped in the car and headed up to Burbank, and Los Angeles’ only real hat shop, Baron’s.
This being the center of showbiz, Baron’s is probably best known for the hats they’ve made for Hollywood productions – you name a picture shot on the left coast involving hats, and Baron’s probably made them. They also make custom hats for retail customers and block, stretch and clean hats. They’re the only folks in Southern California who provide these services in-house, and one of a handful of shops in the country who do.
They told me they’re working on a big project, so my little projects won’t be ready to go for three or four weeks, but I’m grateful to have a local business who can do the work.
It’s On Sale: Allen Edmonds Wingtips
It’s probably just my personal preferences, but I don’t think all wingtips look great with a suit. I tend to favor wingtips with closed lacing, like the Allen Edmonds McAllister above, just because the lines look a bit sleeker when paired with a suit that’s business appropriate. While not as formal as a plain captoe, it would still look good in any environment where a jacket and tie is required.
Allen Edmonds is currently having a sale on select models, offering 15%-30% off. The McAllister is on sale for $ 249, down from $ 345 with free shipping. Sale ends Monday, April 29th.
It’s On Sale: Isaia at STP
The discounter Sierra Trading Post is best known for their outdoor goods, but they’ve also got a few high-end surprises in their stock, like Isaia suits and sportcoats. I’ve noticed that they’ve gotten in about twenty models lately, which have been added to a pretty extensive stock. The sportcoats mostly retail for around $ 2500, and are marked half price at STP. Sign up for STP’s Deal Flyer service, and you’ll get regular coupons which should knock that down a further 25-35%. A great deal for one of Italy’s finest ready-to-wear makers.
It’s all downhill from here, folks.
Coming to Bullseye, mid-May.
You know about humblebrags, right?
This is like that, but not humble.
