In this gig, I’m sometimes guilty of not featuring enough sales for men. So this week, we will kick off with a major sale at Herringbone and Rhodes & Beckett, both of which were recently placed into voluntary administration.
There are discounts on absolutely everything in their ranges, including suits, pants, shirts, belts and accessories. And there are also plenty of ladies’ styles, too.
Online and in selected stores. Check websites for details. While stocks last.

Known for the pizza boxes in which it packages its sweaters, local brand GOOD CMPNY has launched its latest range, dubbed “Neapolitan”.
Just like the ice-cream grandma used to serve, the latest range of sweats are in hues of white, pink, black and grey, and are unisex.
From the runway to street style, logo sweaters have become a wardrobe must-have – and not just for wearing to and from the gym.
At Fashion Week Australia, street style stars showed how to pair a sweatshirt with a ball skirt or jeans and heels for a look that’s anything but slouchy.
The sweaters don’t officially launch until May 27 but you can pre-order now through the website.
His and hers … GOOD CMPNY’s new Neapolitan range.

Given my hoofs and skin are looking a little like a dried up olive in the sun, I’m booking in some elbow grease time with myself this weekend. Here’s a selection to get you in the mood for scrubbin’.
