I highly recommend that everyone trying sitting & slouching in your shirts before deciding whether they fit. If they pucker too much vertically (a little bit is to be expected), or split horizontally at all, along the placket, then this means they are too tight. I imagine that the shirt posted earlier must have those problems. I've learnt from a great deal of trial and error that it's impossible to achieve a perfectly slim fitting Ralph Lauren model-esque look while...
I agree with HC and meant to post earlier re. that shirt picture. It's too tight around the hips & waist. EIther try darts, or do what I have been doing recently since I don't like darts which is to have a slightly smaller back waist/hip/chest measurement than front (basic principle is that you need a bit more fabric in the front than the back, while keeping the side seam centered, but only a little. For instance I think my shirts were at about 10.5" back waist, 11.25"...
In my share house we use this stuff.... One box probably lasts our entire house for 10 months or so, and it costs about $40 IIRC. Cheap as chips and lasts forever. And works pretty well, despite it's sinister name. I also use Oxyclean on shirts. Only thing that ever smells are things made out of poly, which is pretty much inevitable after a while. What are your routines for whites? I have oxyclean as stated above, and a bit of Bluo occasionally. I've heard that people...

Rather pleased that I got in to order that before it ran out... I went with a Mercer collar & pocket.
(IMO) Too much taper in a lot of those pants, even for cotton, even for #menswear store owners.They're like those horrid "carrot" shaped jeans.
A few days ago when I asked them to reserve what little they had left for my order. You might be right, though.
Wore the same tie and an almost identical outfit today...
It's sold out.
For fellow inner north Melb members, of which I know there are a few, I have found a great tailoring/alterations operation. It's on Rathdowne St, in the Rathdowne Village strip (about 50m from my house, fortuitously). Giacomo Basso (http://www.yelp.com.au/biz/giacomo-basso-carlton-north) It's run by an old italian couple (at least 65 I'd say), who have been tailors for about 40 years or so. They have worked in Italy for a few well known brands before moving over here.....
