Apparently the one place you can buy the book (Le Snob: Tailoring) in English now is in Australia. On the bookshelves and online. See comments on yesterday’s post for details.

Thank you for the update. I have cancelled my order from Amazon and ordered from Readings here in Melbourne (their website says they have it in stock). I am hoping it arrives before my first appointment with Tom at P Johnson Tailors. I really enjoy the website and am looking forward to the book.
Keep up the good work.
As an emigre to Australia who always felt most comfortable in London in a pair of ox-blood brogues, three-piece and silk tie, I’ve really struggled with the Aussie office dress code. It seems to be open-neck shirt, suit trousers and black shoes. Anything more formal seems to be frowned upon as someone being ‘up themselves’. I gag on occasion.
Show us a third way. Please!
Stop complaining about aussie male fashion. Up until the early 80s the style of choice used to be business shirt, shorts and calf-high wool socks. And that was considered acceptable professional dress in many offices.
There’s a ‘third way’ for you!
Old post, yes. A great book though Simon – I am looking forward to your next. Any indication when it might hit the shelves?
P Johnson really are fantastic value in my opinion – they do not do bespoke however. That said, there can surely be no argument where it comes to the general standard of Australian clothing decisions – especially what passes for shoes there…
Yes, the next book will be out in Spring next year. Published by Thames & Hudson.
And one or two other publishing projects lined up for next year too.
