 Agreed. Herringbone and R&B look like clones which, of course, is not surprising given that they're both owned by Van Laack but it's a pity that VL has merged them to such an extent that they're pretty much indistinguishable from each other, and they're both uninspiring, too. They're even using the same terms to describe colours now - "bandeira stripe" and so on (whatever the heck "bandeira" is - it seems to be a bright green). Someone posted a while back that Suit Supply...

 Probably a bit politically incorrect nowadays as it could be construed as making fun of someone with a speech impediment, but that's from the classic "Stutter Rap" by Morris Minor and the Majors. Well no-one's ever seen what I meanfrom the age of n-n-n-n-n-n-thirteen.we've all been caught in a m-m-mouth trapso join with us and do the st-st-st-st-st-st-st-stutter rap... 
 @fxh will probably be along shortly to dispense some advice, but I'd try leaving the suit to air for a while. Try turning both the trousers and jacket inside out, putting them on hangers, and then put the hangers out on the clothes line so that the jacket and trousers are exposed to the sun. You could also try spraying them with fabric freshener or something similar. I think that I remember reading that a mild solution of water and vinegar, mixed together in a spray...
 Are we talking about a pair of shoes, or London Underground stations?? ;-)
 Do you have a local watch maintenance place/watchmaker that you trust? An established local watchstore/jeweller may be able to suggest somewhere to you. I mention this because the calibre 861/1861 movement in the Speedy Pro is (and has for many years) been based on the Lemania 1873 movement. The 1873 has been used in quite a few other chronographs (although not as many as the other, well-known tri-compax movement, the Valjoux 7750) over the past few decades and so many...
  I'm not sure where he's located, but I do know that the go-to man for denim repairs and alterations in Sydney is Mikhail Zenon: http://www.mikhailzenon.com/home.html
The classic "top frame" briefcase is, to my eyes, pretty much identical to the stereotypical doctor's bag.   You can get them from Swaine Adeney Brigg and Brooks Brothers (the BB ones are, I believe, made by SAB), but they're not inexpensive:   http://www.swaineadeneybrigg.com/store/swaine-adeney/document-cases/whitehall     If you do a search for top frame briefcase, particularly on a site such as eBay, you should get some second-hand examples in good condition,...
  Well, we both learned something new today - both of us now know that there are two Rubicon Rivers in entirely different countries.
 Didn't realise that there was a Rubicon River in Victoria, too.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossing_the_Rubicon
