IMO khaki-coloured khakis look awful. Pleated khakis also look awful. Baggy khakis look awful. Fitted, flat-front, navy or black khakis, however, can be a useful addition to a casual wardrobe consisting largely of jeans; for work, however, even in a relatively casual environment with a shirt and no tie, I'd still prefer woollen dress slacks.

After all the tradition in dress here is English - not Asian.

Well, *style* is very much a personal thing - whether you prefer solid navy, solid black, black with a self-pattern, black with pinstripes, light grey or fluorescent pink with green polka dots and iridescent glow-in-the-dark lining, it's still style. Whether or not it's *traditional* styling is another matter entirely - this may or may not matter to you, but the ultimate purpose is to *look good*, not to simply follow 'traditional' styling dictates. Black suits, just like...
IMO the 'no black suits during the day' rule is mainly an American thing - it's not seen as a taboo in Australia, most parts of Europe or Asia and is often very classy. It seems to work especially well on young guys, too.
Get a nice leather jacket (preferably not motorcycle style) in whatever colour suits you. Pair it up with a shirt (florals are a favourite of mine), clean, dark jeans and boots. Looks great, casual, but not untidy.

Former Singaporean PM is rather well-known for his pink shirts, made by CYC Custom Shop in Singapore. IMO pink shirts look great with a white or grey suit (or grey or black trousers if no jacket is worn), either with or without a tie - it gives a stylish, yet youthful and energetic look.
Looks like I'll have to find time to go to Sydney then - is Nakhle open on weekends? How much does he charge anyway?
Where is Charles Nakhle's store? He doesn't seem to have a website... can someone post contact details? Also, how are Charles Edward's shirts? Where is his Melbourne store - he doesn't appear to have a website either. BTW how much will each charge for a good shirt (MOP buttons, preferably thick ones, Sea Island-quality cotton, non-fused collar and French or turnback cuffs)? From what I've heard Nakhle sounds like a good option, but he's in Sydney and I don't have...
