Cup day rig. (Herringbone suit and PS, Finamore shirt, Polo RL tie)
I have been measured by Tom from PJ, but didn't end up ordering (partially because I tried on one of their La Vera jackets and realised I wouldn't be satisfied with anything less). He quickly realised at skinny trousers wouldn't suit me, and that I didn't want them. Regarding jacket detailing, I got the impression that was a little less flexible, but others may know better. I was wearing my best fitting suit jacket and basically said that but for a few tiny tweaks,I was...
I copped a Tefal iron with steam unit a while back on sale from Myer. About $200 half price, I think. DJs also had a model on special. Apparently Laurastar has pretty sketchy after sales service, especially for something so pricey. But yeah, spray with a water bottle, rest, iron: I wouldn't go steaming shirts all the time. No creases in the sleeves, for starters ...
A quick question: does anyone happen to know when Isetan's January sale is going to be? I would like to try to be in Tokyo for it. If I recall correctly, the last one started on 18 January?
Thanks for the Land's End recommendations, but I am reluctant to buy online (and were I do to so, I'd go straight to the source: Murray's Toggery Shop). I'm just not game to buy any more pants online (of any length) without trying them on first: small things make a big difference to fit. For example, the pair at Tommy Hilfiger were good in the waist, bottom of the legs, and leg length, but just a cm or two too short in the rise.
I was complimented in the street for my "swag" last night - good to see the youth appreciate linen shirts and red trousers...
Can anyone recommend a local source for some Nantucket red-esque shorts? Seems like everyone is doing a similar shade at the moment, but of the ones that I tried, they were either badly cut (Tommy Hilfiger), poorly finished (French Connection), or heinously overpriced (Ralph Lauren). I instead came home with a pair of these grey seersuckers from Country Road: http://www.countryroad.com.au/shop/man/clothing/shorts/seersucker-stripe-short-60160370 I'm not quite sure what...
I love the look, as you can have a slightly bolder stripe or check on the body, but it won't overwhelm your tie...

At risk of drawing fire, I was a little underwhelmed by the coffee last time I was in Melbourne. Not sure if the damp killing my sinuses (and hence sense of smell) was to blame, but I wasn't all that blown away!
