 Thank you for alleviating my fears. Back to worrying about things that actually matter (career/family/topy?)
I finally took plunge on Suitshop and with the help of Remy ordered a navy suit in a nice open weave so I can use jacket separately.   Remy convinced me out of going 3 patch, so it's currently two patch with a jetted breast pocket.

All my topies are MTM, off the rack topies just don't cut it for me.   Maybe I'm just outspoken tho.
Melbourne highlights: Doublemonk of course was pretty great, just a great set up and stock far and beyond anything else in oz. Amazed to see c&j skye 2s in cordovan, I didn't even think they shipped them. Would have loved to pick up a pair but well out of price range at the moment. Uniqlo-poorer stock than overseas but still good to see in oz. I restocked on ocbds after some unfortunate coffee/fishing stains and got more socks, which are great value. Uptherestore-bit of...
