Quarter lined, two buttons, single vent,patch pockets. Padded shoulders? Not sure of colour either Tobacco or an olive will see what they have when I visit this week.

Dont think you will need padded shoulders. Both colors sound great.

With regard to the watch crystal, getting the shape right is only part of it. Crystals are sometimes surrounded by a seal, or gasket, and so if the seal is old and needs to be replaced along with the crystal, you could be out of luck even if you can find a crystal or have one made. Best to talk with an experienced watch repairer first so as to get their opinion before you spend money getting a crystal made.

 

You could be in luck, though, as not all watches have seals/gaskets - some use cement and some even just snap into place and seal through the compression between the crystal and the side of the watch case.

Don't forget that, depending on the build of the person wearing it, some jackets actually look better with a bit of padding in the shoulders. 


Having said that, GF does have a solid build so his jacket shoulders probably don't need much, if any, padding.

Thanks JM hadn't considered that aspect will seek further advice.

You and Petepan are probably right about the shoulders and they have built up in the past twelve months to the point where a couple of Sports Coats are now a tight fit. mad.gif


And better still the Wallabies played solidly and won this morning icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif however the Blacks marinated and roasted the Springboks.

MD after a bit of research I found an invisible mender for fabric in paramatta next to the post office.

I hope you still have those trousers! I'll be bringing my sweater and cardigan there this week.

@sliq thanks for this. My trousers are lying on one of the bedroom floor. Please let me know the cost of repairing your sweaters. In my case the trousers are eaten by bugs of some kind and will reassess if they can be fixed (quite large holes). But definitely handy information for Sydney members.

Sorry guys - still searching for a shoe shiner/cleaner in Melbourne, any recommendations? Particularly have a pair of shell and scotch grain that need a pick-me-up.

You could try Buffed.

I've been to the guy in the E&Y building a few times. Decent shoe shine, and going to a good cause too.

I often match my dishrag to my footwear and garden. Doesn't everyone?

Anyone have a Kamakura Tokyo slim fit in size 37". Need measurements of shoulder and shoulder end to end of sleeve. The site suggests I go up to 38-85.
