I dont know if I like them. I almost always dislike them even when styled to the hilt

I am wearing a pair right now, with a white shirt, blue-grey v-neck and brown suede drivers. They are excellent.

have a pair of stone coloured chinos myself. incredibly versatile. pair them up with an oxford shirt, cardigan and some loafers or moccasins. or even with a pea coat.

Should I just wait till July sales and hope to pick up some bargains? The other method I'm considering is suit supply? Any thoughts?
Ps- I know how to use the search button- just wanted the aus members current opinion!
Mate I'm getting married in sep, check out MJ Bales two for 1000 offer they hve on a bunch or core range suits. I tried oneon in brissy last weekend and was very surprised they fit me so well, as good or dare I say slightly better than my herringbone stuff and nowhere near as short as some of the models I've seen on their site. So well be going down that route.

I just find there are a lot more pleasing colours out there that also add more to an outfit.

Especially living in melbourne if feel as though there are much more appropriate colours.

I also associate stone coloured chino's with older people. This is what im talking about;

Not sure because I was in DJ's in brissie not the store. But they have the wedding suit basics covered (grey and navy). I'm wearing navy for mine, white shirt, a cream special make tie (my wedding gift off my tie maker) and am in the process of doing a MTO pair of black linea maestro oxfords from meermin (with maroon Henry Carter coloured lining).

What are you thinking for your suit?

hey guys,

any recommendations on where to buy cedar shoe trees? online or in store (perth).

also charlie, you wouldn't happen to plan on doing MTM shirts would you? i require a rather slim waist in my shirts which makes it difficult for buying OTR.
post #13945 of 57242
I'm thinking light grey. Will go in and check mj bale during the week. I'm yet to figure out tie colours as I don't think the bridesmaids dresses are sorted. I think they are going to be a light green.

The other option is to wait a month for the sales and hope I can nab four of the same style of suit for a good price.

Hi apples, unfortunately not, there are too many MTM shirt makers doing it a lot cheaper, but you should find the release of my shirts in august will be reasonably slim in the waist anyway. The samples arrive in the next few days so I'll see what I need to tweak when they get here and will post measurements once finalised.

I am going to launch MTO ties though with a min of 2, perfect for weddings etc that can be hand embroidered with a special message. Mine for my wedding will have the date on them on the fabric keeper and will be a bit of a test for how the program runs.

Endless is the cheapest place to buy shoe trees. Price between $20-$30. Free shipping for order over $100. Few weeks ago I paid $140 for 7 pairs of shoe trees @$20 per pairs. Amazon,Nordstrom and every other places quoted me$120- $80 just for shipping. I think endless losses money every time they sell these shoe trees to Australians !!!nod[1].gif

Cool. Unfortunately my shoulder's are rather broad compared to my waist, so even most slim cut shirts are still too baggy for me frown.gif
