 Mimo, that's interesting to hear as I'm quite similar in size to you, albeit slightly taller and with a slightly larger chest. May I ask how wide you are across the shoulders? That is, what sort of shoulder/yoke measurement do you prefer on your suits and shirts? I'm interested in some of Suit Supply's offerings but we don't have a bricks-and-mortar store anywhere in Australia as yet and I can't be bothered fiddling around with ordering and returning without having a...
 Have a great evening, Matt!  The dinner suit will probably be baggy as all heck, with massive shoulders and almost enough break in the trousers to make a second pair, but 99% of the other men will most likely look the same and no-one will really care, anyway. The main thing is to have a good time. P.S. Even though you're renting the suit, try to find a tie-it-yourself bow-tie, rather than a ready-tied one. If you're not used to tying one, it takes a little bit of...
Noodles has already gone down the Formosa route, with mixed results. The suits don't look too bad on him (even counting the debacle over the mis-sizing or whatever happened with one suit, but let's not re-hash that again), but they don't look outstanding, either.    Let's not forget that regardless of brand, if a suit/shirt/jacket/shoes don't fit well, it's a waste of money. Having said that, of course, here on SF we do tend to nitpick a bit too relentlessly at times and...
 Absolutely. It's old-fashioned protectionism dressed up for the digital age. 
 I've dealt with both @Petepan and @Master-Classter and they've both been very good.  M-C has a wider range than Pete, but he mentioned to me recently that he's getting out of selling decants of Tom Ford scents. That means that there may well be some deals to be had but, on the other hand, the range he offers might be smaller or he might be out of stock entirely. 
   I'm not RRLRanch, but here's a link to the Rothbury on the RL website: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=67185296 Calf-leather oxfords with a punch captoe design and a Dainite sole, made in England. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know whether they're made by C&J or by someone else. I assume that they're too cheap to be Edward Green ("cheap" being relative in this case, of course, given that they are priced at $895).  
 But you're in England, the home of two of the greatest umbrella manufacturers in the world! Fox Umbrellas: http://www.foxumbrellas.co.uk/acatalog/index.html James Smith & Sons: https://www.james-smith.co.uk/ Here's a story on James Smith & Sons: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/united-kingdom/england/london/articles/Londons-top-shops-James-Smith-and-Sons-umbrella-shop/
  I don't wear invisible socks with loafers, but I do with my sneakers when I'm wearing shorts. I've found Uniqlo to make really good, and also really cheap, invisible socks. They have little, gel-like strips at the inside of the heel that grip the area around the bottom of your Achilles tendon and stop them from slipping off.
^Yes, me too.   There's been a few comments about it in the "Site topics" thread but I'm not sure what's happening or what's causing it.   When I'm using Chrome as a browser, I find that it really slows down after a while and then I often get a "Flash has crashed" message. Once I click on the message and tell Flash not to re-start, it's usually fine.
 Interesting - I didn't know that there was an umbrella-maker in Brisbane (well, just north of Brisbane). I did a quick search and found this ABC story on Alicia Mora-Hyde and her umbrellas - it includes some nice photos and other details: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-09-24/australias-last-umbrella-maker/6800924
