Man in a Handmade Suit


Dear Editor.

As one hears things from time to time, this last little profile got under my skin.

The incoming ALP President has been seen wearing $1000 hand made shirts, very expensive belts, shoes and zegna suits!!

These items were seen by a person who knows luxury goods. Is just me or do you have a niggling doubt about a "luxury goods wearer" ?

Signed, a trade unionist.
