3) learn to use my camera properly
4) find an appropriate spot in the house
5) get my wife to help (last time I asked her she rolled her eyes and walked off.....haha)

I don't like my chances. Flash went off in the last one making the colours a little washed out.

Spandexter - thank you for posting some photos - your outfits look good.
Personally, I'd opt to add a pocket square - even just a white linen one - but I realise that some people are reluctant to do so as they feel it will be seen as an affectation.

I entirely agree about full-length photos - they're just not happening at the moment for exactly the same reasons as my mornings are occupied with getting the kids to have breakfast, persuading them to get dressed, helping to make lunch, getting them to pack their bags, and then rushing to get ready myself!

I think that, to take photos like Graeme Wong (formerly of StyleForum, now of Most Exerent), it really helps to be single, or at least unencumbered by small children!

Well, my brogues arrived from Pediwear today. The 1880 Buckingham in brown, and the 1880 Savoy in black.

 

I thought I would load up some pictures. Charlie told me I need more natural light in my pictures, so I took them outside at a local park.

Sizing is pretty much perfect. I have Henry Bucks and David Jones to thank for that. The Mayfair and Capital lasts are pretty much the same. The Buckingham has the nice rounded toe that I like. The savoy is probably a bit too fashion forward and sleek for my liking, but still a great shoe. I really like the etchings.

 

Having a hard time working out whether I should topy them. The pamphlet says no, the general consensus says yes.

 

I guess everyone remembers the first pair of brogues that they buy. I am certainly not going to forget mine. Hopefully I have made the right choice. I owe a big thank you to Barry Zuckerkorn from WP and all the Aussie members of SF for being the best compasses any new navigator could possibly want.

 

Cheers guys cheers.gif

 

P.S There ain't no way I am letting these brogues go dusty, sorry mate :).

Re pocket squares I haven't quite made the transition yet. I don't even own one (shog[1].gif) but have been considering picking a few up. Stay tuned!

What's everyone cooking for dinner? I'm just about to fire up the barbie for some marinated pork cutlets with mash and steamed vegies, Washed down with a Hoegarden.

My last day of paternity leave so we just finished off some Bistecca alla Fiorentina and some vegies tossed with some good quality olive oil and garlic

 

Also cracked open a bottle of Hay Shed Hill Cab Sav mmmm

Cool didnt know u guys got busy on this - im not certain i agree Cutler should be listed as "best bespoke in oz" ... the fit of their suits are terrible and are an absolute rip off.

I am the same as you.

Some of those P Johnson pocket squares look pretty damn sexy. For $55 including shipping, that ain't too bad.

Why is it cheaper to buy them from Exquisite Trimmings than it is from PJ? patch[1].gif

Yeah Rob. Please please please update that Wiki with your suiting knowledge.

 

Someone came on last night asking where they should buy their first suit. I am guessing this has happened 20x in this thread before.

Good question. Perhaps he is the supplier of P Johnson pocket squares? $20 cheaper to be precise.

Because only at P. Johnson does the humble pocket square really come into its own and become a "pochette".

Really? That's interesting Romp, have you seen many Cutlers in the wild. I was basing this off some things that I read on SF around 2 years ago, I have not actually seen anything Cutler in the flesh, but I've heard a few good reports from some friends. The only other well known bespoke tailors I can think of are Fink and Sons and Sam Disano.

 

Also, please edit that suits post or add to it. I was hoping to make it a place to direct anyone new to protect the sanity of others. In my mind, if there's a good detailed section on Australian suits, shoes, pants and jackets on that wiki, this thread will remain a place to discuss more important things, like indulge in 10 page arguments about eBay sniping. Who wouldn't want that?
