I don't think you need to act a certain way, they'll be happy to have you there unless your default behaviour 'douchebag'.

Anyone been following the twitter stoush between froomes and wiggins wives?

I remember a few years ago he was being talked about as a potential GC winner and then he had a couple bad editions... can't remember which year, but didn't ride off the edge of a switchback?

Yes, I like a bargain.
Has anyone bought an expensive suit from Ebay?
I am looking at new Brioni suits that have USD RRP of $4,500 for sale
on Ebay at about $1,400 ?????
The Sellers feedback looks fine.
Are they real and why so cheap?
Finally,I assume they are good suits?

Have you tried on this same fabric and cut in real life? If you haven't, then $1400 on something that may never fit as it should/as you like, is not money well spent. Just a thought.

Just tell them you have been looking in the window for 9 years and thought it might be too expensive or ask if they mind you having a look around.
Don't pretend you are buying if you are not.
Tell them you wish you could afford their stuff.
Have a chat, be friendly and natural, don't waste their time if they are busy.
They are some of the friendliest people in town.
And sitting up there at the top end they were a lone beacon in quality menswear in Melbourne for many years.

Best menswear store in Melbourne. I don't get all this anxiety, I'm in my early 20s and never had a problem going there.

Never had a problem in AT.

Wish there was a store like this in Sydney...

Navy linen summer (duh) jacket.

- Regular fit is like a tent.

Need to go take in 2" from upper back to 4" around the waist to make it fit nicely. Good thing there isn't any lining in the way. Might make it a diy task. Had quite a bit of fun fiddling with my old Ben Sherman suit last year.

First, I'll give it a good wash.

 

I'm glad everything worked out. How do the measurements compare to the UK website we were looking at for sizing?

He has done a lot for tailoring of late, and congrats to him, but he's not alone there, so I don't think that's an entirely fair statement. Zink, for example, have been around since 1895. That's the epitome of success IMO, and they're still doing well with a thriving (both young and old) clientele. Cutler and Bijan are, similarly, doing very well with new and existing clients. I don't think P. Johnson has really done much more than those who have come before him. And there are plenty of other offshore MTM houses, just like P. Johnson, popping up throughout Australia, many as successful as Johnson (some less so).

Bespoke/MTM is going through a new-found popularity here, and that's a good thing across the board, but there are varied reasons for this.

Asian M = UK S
Asian sleeves are 1" shorter than UK.
Everything else seem exactly the same - even jacket length. Either White guys have gorilla arms or Asians have T-Rex arms. Dont know which.

Did the alterations already and although handwork is crude, its completely wearable. Actually looks slim like on the site now.

There's totally a Godzilla joke there.

 

What was the total cost landed?
