Be brave, men
of Perth -- give
talk about. This
daring you to step
outside the square.
Labels to bank on | The wet season is finally upon us, and this year the return of
sub 20-degree temperatures, dark clouds and rainfall brings with it a new high-end shopping
precinct just for us guys (I know: about time, right?). It's all happening on Hay Street, slightly
off the main shopping drag, where Tony Barlow and Hugo Boss have been lifting our game
for some time now. Come July, we'll have double the designer action, with two of Italy's finest
gentlemen's labels -- Canali and Versace -- setting up shop in the old Bank of New South
Wales building. Both fashion lines are renowned for beautiful tailoring and innovative design,
crossing casual, business and formal attire (rumour has it Canali is Barack Obama's suit of
choice). Get out there, gents, and be sure to give them a good old-fashioned Perth welcome.
Canali opens June, Versace late July, at 899 Hay Street, Perth.
of cool After sliding off the radar in
the latter half of last century, the
bow tie is clawing its way back to the crevice of
collars everywhere. And according to a report in
the UK s Telegraph, we ve got the new Doctor Who
to thank for it. Since the program aired at the start
of April, when actor Matt Smith (who plays the
righteous Time Lord) brazenly declared "bow ties
are cool", one leading fashion retailer recorded a
94 percent jump in sales of the old-time accessory.
So it s not just tuxes or nerdy school outfits where
the buxom bow has found new life: we re seeing him
matched with all kinds of garments, from polos and
dress shirts to cardigans and suits. Some say "clip-
ons" don t get the same plumpness as "self-ties," but
unless you ve got patience to watch 50 "how-to"
videos on YouTube, it s all much of a muchness
really. Find the selection pictured at Parker & Co,
parkerandco.com.au; and Calibre, calibre.com.au.
