Ill pay $66.15 but only if you send it via Taxi courier to Sydney and put it in a gold leafed box filled with butterflies that flutter around creating a mystical aura as i unpack the jacket and grace it upon my shoulders.

Hmm i good question forgot to specify was in a rush lol... I wanted flap welts on this one as its for work

Might have been covered, but if not MJ Bale has opened in Perth. St Georges Tce near Brookfield Place. Had a chat to the sale assistant and he tells me they're making their suits in Japan again (others still made in china). Quality to my eye looked improved from when I was in Sydney. Some really nice summer sports coats as well (unlined, patch pockets). Worth a look

Are their lower end suits worth it?

 

I am definitely going to get a P Johnson suit within the next few years.

Anyone here ever had Cheaney's (esp on the 208 last)? I think I might have finally found a pair RTW of dark colour plain wings. They look decent, fiddle waist and channeled sole, but not much about them on the 'net:

It's all about the fit, and when you have trained fitters taking your measurements and utilising a system they are no doubt very familiar with, it will be very clear that it is worth it.
They're not "lower end", but if you stick with a basic fabric and style the cost will stay lower.

I don't know what you mean by 'lower end', but, provided you are unable to find RTW options for less money that both fit you as well as a good MTM (which PJ is), or give you other added bells and whistles which PJ offers (e.g. patch pockets, ruffled shoulders, wider lapels, tab adjusters, etc.) then yes, it's worth it.

At the end of the day, how much it's worth is entirely dependent on you and whether you think paying $X gives you what you want. If, for example, you spend $500 on three suits over 18 months only to be unhappy with each one, you're better off going to PJohnson (or similar) straight away and getting something that does meet your requirements.

Just generalisations, up to you to decide what's worth it and what's not smile.gif

Well, everyone has a range. So they start from $1,300 and go up from there. Obviously the quality increases the further you go up. Often people are not judged on their entry level suits - they are often judged on the best quality they can produce.

 

I get the point though, PJ is unmatched in quality and fit (at the moment).

You guys have ruined the sale of a very nice jacket.
