Thanks, @meister . The shoes are Carmina oxfords. This is another pic of them:

Any suggestions for a similar light cotton blazer but in a navy? I purchased the last size available in the navy which was an XS and it fits too snug on me so will have to return(It sucks not having a Uniqlo shop in Perth) 

Note I am approx 38 chest 6'1"

What is the smell ? It does depend.

What part of the suit does it appear to emanate from? Jacket or trousers?

It is rare not to be able to get rid of smells on/in wool.

There is some spray you can use for wool carpets - supposed to get rid of smells - not sure how well it works.

Nil -Odor is handy - put a few drops of Nil-Odor on business cards or similar and slip them in all pockets.

Lingering smell in wool might be mould or some bacteria/microby things.

Can other people smell it?


Smells are hard to describe maybe best word to describe is compost?

MORRIS MOTLEY REVIEW
 

So last night i got a haircut done at Morris Motley, a bespoke barber as they are described in their website who have had raging reviews, more so about their hair products. I ended up trying em out 50% out of curiosity, 50% to get a new do to go with my first bespoke suit which should be coming anytime now.

As i walked in i was greeted with a nice simple decor of black and whites, with Rob Mason (the founder) working on his hair products in the center and 2 other barbers James and Ryan, working on their respective customers. I was offered some sparkling water or a beer to which i kindly declined and waited for my turn patiently for my new cut.
They had music playing off a central mac that the receptionist was controlling.

After about a 10-15 minute wait, I was greeted by ryan who would cut my hair. I had a small issue with this since online i had made the booking for Rob to cut my hair, but i didnt want to seem rude and im sure if Rob trusted his co-barbers to do an outstanding job then i should too.
So ryan sat me down, and had a play around a bit with my hair, pulling things back and pondering to himself what to do with the 3 months of accumulated growth, he asked me if i had any ideas as to what i wanted to which i just replied with im leaving it completely up to you.

After a while he came to a conclusion, had my hair washed and started cutting.

The vibe of the guys working there is very chill. They ended up putting on the McGreggor vs Diaz interview on the mac, and a few highlight clips of the UFC while they cut my hair.

At the end of it Ryan cut my hair in a fade from both sides with the top remaining fairly long to be styled backwards or to the side. He showed me a few different styles for how i could style it myself at home and honestly im pretty happy with it. The guys at work seem to love it as well.

 

Would i justify it as being worth $100? Not really... maybe 60...$80 max with the service, i didnt feel like it was much of a "bespoke" haircut experience of talking about how the shape of my face would suit this style or that like the site made it sound like. But overall im deffinately happy with the cut. The style looks nice and the atmosphere of the place is great, but i deffs could have gotten this haircut done by normal hairdresser for $35

The hair products they sell on the other hand id rate pretty highly. The styling balm that i bought 2 of (which includes the same comb they use if u purchase 2), stays in for the whole day and has a really strong hold. No need for hair spray anymore. Its not greasy and its easy to spread through your hair. Also washes out really easily.

Sorry to break it to you bro but your used clothes were probably robbed from a grave. That's how you get the "lived in" look and the "died in" smell.

Well, that would explain the "compost" smell...

Shouldn't any decent hairdresser or barber give you a "bespoke" haircut?

 

If you join the army and get a haircut, then you might not have much choice in what you get. Apart from that, though, when you go to the hairdresser or barber, they should typically ask you what you want and, if you like, have a chat with you about the sort of hairstyle that will suit your face and hair, and so you're getting a bespoke haircut.

I've been going bespoke for years mate, just that I've always called it a regular haircut.

Sounds like it's an easy way to slap the $100 price tag on the end. At $100 for a hair cut I better be getting a hand job at the end not a beer at the start (preferably from the receptionist not the barber).

I think that you are infringing* on fxh's territory with that sort of terrible joke.
