Ha!

That's mine, mate (I'm the mysterious RN).

Beautiful fabric IRL; I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Ah cool, it looks like it came up well! Did you get the lighter or darker variant of that fabric? Mine will be the lighter one.

To date I have had 2 suits & 1 SC delivered - IMO better than anything I ever got from WW Chan. All jacket have soft shoulder, 3 PP, 2B SB, double vent & pants are plane front, button fly & side tabs LP "The Wave" suit LP Wool/Mohair suit Ariston linen SC On the way, a LP 4 Seasons grey flannel , LP "Zelander" blue + grey/tobacco window check & finalising 2 more for winter this week. Details in my bRog.. Also, I picked up my shirt last week & have ordered another 5 in Thomas Mason. IMO P J currently offers the best value in Australia & the best service.

@ PG, I really like your jackets, especially the patch pockets. I saw some of the details on the bRog and was thoroughly impressed.

I read in Monocle magazine that PJ has their suits finished in the Netherlands. Does anyone know if there is a comparable tailor in Northern Europe that uses the same shop? Amsterdam is a five hour drive for me versus a 25 hour flight to Sydney.

All looks very good, though you should button that button down collar shirt. It looks a little silly unbuttoned. Otherwise, all very good. Wear it in good health.

Just got back from having my first appointment with Tom in Melbourne. I ordered a navy three piece made up with an extra set of trousers. Plenty of cloth choices - which can be overwhelming for a first timer. We picked out a shade marginally lighter then french navy, more of a 'ink navy' in S120. Options that i adopted included side tabs and button fly on the trousers and a slightly lower button stance to their default. He is only having one pair of pants made initially, with the second getting ordered after the first fitting (in case there are any changes). As others have already mentioned the hardest part is choosing the shoulder style - I went in wanting a roped shoulder, but Tom convinced me to try the soft shoulder for a first suit. He noted that my shoulders are quite square already and didn't. The only down side was that he didn't have any examples of the style around (other then the jacket he was wearing). That said, he mentioned that in the next week or so he'll be moving into a new location in South Melbourne and will have plenty of samples around. In the end I decided to go with his best judgment on the shoulders - although I must admit I am still a little nervous and excited at the same time. The only thing that I am thinking of is whether I should stump up a little extra for the hand finish. I like the hand finished look, but not sure if it is worth it on our first collaboration.

Save your money - your first MTM/bespoke outfit will at best with time be an above average suit as opposed to a bang on one; it is par for the course that very few hit the nail on the head first time around, and the ones that can do so charge you enough to wish they couldn't.

Don't think I can fault your logic Check.

As far as Tom's advice, I would generally agree that if you have square shoulders a soft shoulder on your jacket should look particularly well on your frame.
