Speaking of Melbourne get togetherness - Come along to Kimber's launch and/or check out his popup. I'll be there and, more importantly, so with Nice Guy Gerry (before he heads with fxh to Vue De Monde).
Matt - The site Permanent Style might have a few ideas for you. Also, PJ are doing a visit - prob too expensive though. Honestly think Permanent Style will give you some good insights. I am sure there are a few around.
Eidos fits on the smaller side compared to British and American brands in my experience. To me it sounds like you need the size up and you would be better to sell and get something you feel comfortable in and will enjoy both in terms of look and feel when you wear it. I wear 42(52) and Large in UK brands but 44(54) and XL in brands like Boglioli and Eidos.
