Outfitter to Melbourne's gentlemen of distinction, Pugnacious George is possibly the coolest place to get your cuffs turned down in Melbourne. This is the Flinders Street studio-store selling all things man. Where along with your tailored shirts and silk ties, you can pick up a Mason Pearson comb and Imperial pomade for perfecting your Don Draper, and TMA-1 headphones – just because they're effing cool and you need them.

George speaks awesome fluently, which is exactly why you can play a game of table tennis while you shop, and why they're stocking a tie called the Presgrave, whose stripe proportions match that of the Campari, Vermouth and soda in a classic Americano cocktail. A cocktail best acquired at Presgrave Place's standing-room only speakeasy, Bar Americano. George recommends the classic four-in-hand knot. We recommend an Americano to go with it.

The Presgrave is one of PG's Laneway Ties series, which includes an artsy check'n'pinstripe Hosier, and the Bennetts, which is kind of blue.
