Hows the quality and fit with their knits?

*looks like Country Road have finally update their website: http://www.countryroad.com.au/shop/man/clothing/knitwear/MKN458S436/V-Neck-Knit.html

 

Didn't realise he was up here now. That's him. 

 

Imo, they fit similarly to Country Road (Go try one on), quality is similar too. Uniqlo may be a little bit lighter/tighter weave, but I have yet to wear mine enough to notice any appreciable difference.

On the weekend, the patron saint of cheap clothing (St Vincent) smiled down upon me and delivered the plus non ultra of sports coats. Okay, so it doesn't actually fit me (yet), but check this out..
  • Bespoke by Gieves and Hawkes - so, beautiful hand-sewn button holes etc
  • Black and white houndstooth with a blue overcheck
  • Dark grey leather-weave buttons
  • Dove grey suede elbow patches
  • Bellow back
  • Bellow front pockets
  • Throat latch
  • A diguised mini pocket in front of the breast pocket (never seen this before - is it a kind of ticket pocket? Or is it to hold the arms of your glasses when the sit them in the breast pocket?)
Cool - aye?

Off to the rugger old chap?

Yay. Either conservative navy blues or darkish tans but I used to wear the flax one as well and I still wear a plaid one I got that is a butterscotch colour. People will make comments like "you look very summery!" etc which is a way of saying "wish I had the cojones" to wear the Italian look.

Probably the more summery colours would be out of place in the boardroom but it's up to you. Most won't wear linen "because it wrinkles".

I wear heavier weight linens that rumple rather than crush but you can't stop linen being itself.

I have got to the stage where I don't like wearing wool in high summer.

Anyone hazard a guess as to the maker of these loafs?:

They might even be Herrings. One sec and I'll find a link.

Maybe not, looking at the strap *shrug*.

The quality on these seems nice but the fit is just not how I would like it. A bit loose in the chest and body, and too long in the sleeves. All of these issues are fixable but a more major issue is that the V Neck is lower and looser than I'd like.
So I think they will be getting sent back tomorrow.

I size down on the Lewin knitwear and it fits me very well generally (aside from arms which are always too long for me on any knitwear), but that's just me. Certainly if I went for my 'normal' size they would be too loose. I assume yours aren't a 'small' size then, but if they are I might be interested in taking them off your hands.

Buy from uniqlo for 20gbp and ship using a proxy. borderlinx give you a uk and us address and seem reasonable. you dont get it ex-vat though

You sure you are reading their mind correctly?

No they're an M, will sell to anyone who wants them otherwise they're going back. I think they would work for a lot of people, just not exactly what I was looking for.

Apologies for flogging an old tired horse, I just have a quick qustion about sizing from suit supply. P.Johnson suggested on my sizing they have a size 40 would be the best fit for me however, after I gave suit supply my sizes they suggested a 42.  I have heard a few members suggest to try a size smaller then they usually take.Thinking of going a size 40, I'm 6"2,  92kg 44"chest and 33" waist any help would be much appreciated.

post #16317 of 54709

It depends on the measurements of the block - perhaps on the P Johnson Block, you're a size 40 but for the block Suit Supply uses, you're a 42. It's about the measurements of the jacket more than the number. Did you try anything at P Johnson to see what the fit was like? The proportion of the jacket (shoulders, sleeves, length) all come into play here.

 

What's Suit Supply's return policy like? Can you order one in 40 and one in 42 and return the one that doesn't fit?

post #16318 of 54709
A 40 will be way too small if you have a 44 inch chest. As a bit of context, I'm the same height as you but only 82 kg and I wear a 40 in pretty much everything. My chest is a 40. You would be a 42 at smallest unless the the cut is super loose (un likely at p.Johnson or suit supply). I know from looking through the suit supply thread there seems to be quite a bit of variances in there different cuts also.

Went into Henry Bucks first time in my life. Walked out with a navy P. Albizzati tie $49 and a Drakes thin lambswool scarf $54.50. Also was itching to get one of those wooly cashmere knit ties, then remembered I have nothing to go with them.

Also confused why sizes seem to start at medium and pants at 32. Way too big for me.


And anyone had a chance to have a look at Harrolds yet? 2k+ shoes and 1k+ shirts at the front are really stopping my entry.
