How ever have you survived Melbourne with those habits?

Took me an hour, but I caught up 220+ posts while I was away for a week on the South Coast of NSW.

Someone 100 odd posts ago was speaking highly of RHD in Adelaide. +1.

As for the PJ origin discussion, I thought that were perhaps made in the same place as Suit Supply. Suit Supply are from the Netherlands, and that's where PJ's stuff is purported to be made.

Hey man, hope you had fun!

Re-PJ Origins

TBH, I don't really care where his stuff gets made; that's why I stayed out of that discussion. What's important to me is the fit and quality of the final product.

On both, Pat has never disappointed.

And FWIW, I have received more compliments than you could shake a bespoke seven-fold tie at since I started wearing his kit about a year ago. Especially from attractive women... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

So who gives a flying hoot eh?

It's a bit delayed, but here's a shot from Friday (fxh, please avert your eyes!):



The trousers are Nantucket reds (a sort of faded red or, as some colleagues call them, "salmon pink"). I was also wearing a light blue OCBD shirt, blue-brown bicolour knit tie, a navy, cotton, herringbone-weave jacket with patch pockets and a linen pocket square and carrying a Filson 256.

Unfortunately, the colours are a bit dark in the photo - both the trousers and shoes are a bit lighter in colour.

Nice one, Journeyman! Is that your usual weekend kit?

 

Liking those special transparent socks!

Common camera problem here I notice, Gerry, Journeyman and I think brownman and christian have had the problem. Probably poor quality cameras. Or sneezing wasabi on lense?

Don't know who wrote this, but it is well referenced and a very comprehensive read on Black Tie:

Using it as a general guide for my MTM tux shirt.

Nice looking suit CEP.
