No, they're offshore (Netherlands) MTM but with considerably more local expertise and higher quality than is often associated with such businesses.

Meeting with Patrick first thing tomorrow morning to get a new suit made and would love some suggestions from the SF brains trust.

I have two pj suits already (one slightly lighter than navy and the other strikingly similar to PG's classic grey a few posts further up). Both are quite 'conservative' for work and I am thinking of going with a softer shoulder and a skinnier trouser, still primarily for work but a little more mullet than short back n sides (not that I want to look like someone with a mullet).

I was thinking a light to mid grey, 2B SB, peak lapel but I am open to suggestions. Also thinking of getting a navy check and possibly pink check (or white) shirts made (agree with all on here that the shirts are amaze-balls!).

Looking forward to your suggestions.

And yes I was the one that posted about the crotch problem a while ago on SF (please don't berate me it is still a point of mild ignorance driven shame).

Also props to the picture posters. I don't have the balls, yet

Get a linen suit with half/quarter/no lining for casual wear.

Or a nice 3-piece corduroy suit for winter wear after five.

For those interested in P Johnson Tailors - South Melbourne showroom in particular.

The proof reading on that site needs some attention. Some of the sentences are all over the place.

Hoping you mean the site linked with the article rather than my little Tumblr...though it is probably true of both.

That article reads horribly. Every sentence is horrible. It was painful to read. The writer should change careers.

Hi y'all

Has anyone on here ever had a navy (or dark blue) blazer / sport coat made up by P Johnson? If so I'd love to hear what fabric you chose. I'm going to get one soon, and after doing some research I'm thinking maybe a Fresco-like fabric. I'd like to be able to wear the jacket with jeans as well as with wool trousers.

Thanks

I have had an Ariston cotton navy blazer made by PJ which fantastic to wear with jeans etc. I never leave home without it when I'm dressed causally. I've had it for over a year now and it has that nonchalant creased casual look about it. It pretty much goes with anything. I highly recommend it.

I have something similar that I picked up last week...awesome jacket.

 

Just book in a time and tell Tom you want a Fresco like fabric in blue and go from there. It is literally what I did.

Hi Tobias

Incidentally, that's what I'm going to see Patrick for this Friday.

Think I might go with a hopsack weave; debating whether or not to get a whole blazer suit (patch waist pockets and lighter horn buttons) made up.

FWIW, I think you're on the right track - think texture always when it comes to SCs, otherwise the garment can look too much like an orphaned suit jacket.

I have a blue linen-wool-silk hopsack from Ariston, half-lined with three patch pockets with hand finishing. One thing I noticed this hopsack jacket is that it develops small patches which look like powder. Can't get rid of it, so I have just chosen to accept it as "charming". Anyone with hopsack jackets notice this? It might also be the fabric blend which is causing this, and not the weave.

Jacket looks great! What fabric is that jacket made out of? And how much did that set you back?

^ post above says what fabric it is. I remember it was somewhere upwards of $1,000.

I just met with Tim last week.

 

I don't know when "6" had it made, but on current pricing, this would be:

 

(Assuming Grade "C" Fabric)

 

$1475 (Fabric/Suit) + $250 (Hand Make) + $150? (Half Lining)

 

Unless I'm wrong - I think 'much' upwards of $1000. But '6' should correct me.
