Thanks for your thoughts
I need a new suit - is there much a difference between Oscar Hunt and Suit Shop? They both seem to offer basically the same price point for similar quality.   I'm also thinking of getting a suit made suit for Travelers' Apparel (they do a MTM/bespoke option where it's all made in Melbourne).   Any help would be appreciated (I know I'm probably thinking about this too much too)
These are a fantastic price....I only wish my feet were half a size bigger!
Has anyone had any experiences with Charles Tyrwhitt shirts? The deal of 5 for $200 seems too good to be true for someone who needs a 94cm arm with a 39cm neck. This forum has very little on them (from what I could find) I'm thinking of trying out as they offer free returns unless someone can convince otherwise.
This is killing to do this, but I need to sell a couple of shoes I love that just a little too small. I will add these to the B&S thread once I get the pics tonight, but wanted to give my Australian mates a free option. All are in excellent condition (I have over 10 pairs of work shoes so they have never been worn twice in the same week). Up for sale are: - C&J Canterbury (last 317) UK 9.5 black brogues (worn about 10 times and have topy with metal toe) $200; - Church UK...
Does anyone know where I can get a couple of pair of braces? I had a mate who bought some of these and liked them, but I find him hit and miss with business wear: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=261069787337
Fine - I love my Trickers. Is it sad that I have a grey suede belt to match.... 
I don't think it's the fault of the wholesaler either. Australia's population is just too small compared with other markets.   The wholesaler can invest their time in other markets (North America, Europe, and Asia) and receive a given return based on their time. For Australia, if the wholesaler wants to achieve a similar return on time invested, they need to charge a higher price (to earn more profit) to counteract the lower volumes.
Can anyone comment on the quality of Charles Tyrwhitt shirts?   I recently walked into the store while in London and was surprised and their range of sleeve length. I have very long arms and have always used overseas MTM (if I stay with MTM, I'll probably choose Jantzen) as no other shirts fit me (unless I get a tailor to take in the sides). While the cost difference between a couple of shirts is immaterial, I'm looking at 10+ for my next order.   Any feedback would...
Then all my clothes, shoes, and holidays all become that much more expensive
