So it seems like I need to lurk on this thread and forum more often... given all the people copping CPs!   Just came back from a trip to Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan and walked past Sneakerboy in Westfield. I've been trying to keep an eye out for a discounted pair of Buttero's or CP's, 50% off would have definitely tipped the scales! I was hoping to be a new convert, but looks like all the Achilles are sold out at Sneakerboy and Harrolds.   At least I managed to pick...
 Business must be booming, I spent around $11,000 at Lee Baron around a week ago for a VBC 110 suit and a dozen or so shirts. Admittedly not the worst price in the world, but bearing in mind most of the shirts were using house fabrics and only three had non-fused collars. However, Peter was asking for $5,300 for a half canvas VBC 110 and from memory I paid $3,900 two years ago! I might have to give Dream Bespoke a try next time around depending on how happy I am with what...
  Picked up the Tobias in navy and the Xavier earlier.   Is the Xavier actually green though? It looks grey in the photos and that is what I would prefer.
IMO, the price of the PRL cable knit cashmeres are pretty reasonable at $200 after 60% off. Particularly, as I was considering some Everlane cashmeres and they are $120 USD before proxy.I picked up a red and a black in small as soon as the sale started. The stuff isn't amazing, but I think it's good for the price. However, I also picked up two RLBL cashmeres - these are obviously nicer than the PRL but also cost more. They are just cut slimmer and it's a softer/thinner...
  I'd be interested as well, was just considering picking up some items from SS - good thing I decided to browse SF first.   Might still cop this http://eu.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-navy-plain-sienna-p3467/P3467,en,pd.html?vpid=P346701 to try it out. Sounds like the Napoli is an interesting fit for most people, so might avoid that for now.
  Agreed, if I like it then it doesn't really matter if there is a better line.     However, to establish whether it is a fair price understanding the pecking order does help - given I paid the same price for both though the manufacturing for one is in a country with arguably lower quality and cost.   The first question is a bit silly, but I had read a couple of times that RLBL was only made in Italy. I also asked the the sales person whether the premium for the black...
I've gone through the thread and Google and couldn't quite find the answer.   I was wondering whether Black Label Denim is manufactured in Italy or China? According to the label it is the latter.   I actually went from 0 cashmere sweaters to 4 today (2 PRL, 1 RLBLD, 1 RLBL). I am slightly disappointed, as I didn't realise one of the Black Label sweaters was from the denim line. As far as look and feel are concerned they both seem the same, the pricing was also...
Questions from a lurker, just wondering what the usual cost for shortening jacket sleeves and the hem of some suit pants are in Sydney?   I picked up quite a few suits in Hong Kong, including a few from Lee Baron - unfortunately/fortunately I've become a bit less round! Getting the suits taken in over here seem to cost a fortune with places like sewspecial and hayel charging I think it was $300.   So, instead of killing myself on alteration costs I've picked up a...
Hey all,   Is anyone able to recommend some tailors or stores for alterations (waist suppression) in the Sydney CBD?    A search of this thread yields around 50 pages of matches for alterations/tailors. Unfortunately, I do have a slight time constraint as a friend of mine can bring the suits to Lee Baron to alter for me (who put together a great fitting suit a month ago).   I would definitely appreciate any advice, given the wealth of experience on here. The...
