Really? I am fairly sure mine are Riviera v-neck t-shirts and haven't had any problems but I might be wrong. Oh well.
Finally got around to putting my head in to M.J. Bale's new Melbourne store, and lo their jacket cuts fit me at least as well as the HB Osaka cut did! Quite happy to have a decent OTR option available to me now. Chatted with Paulo for quite a while and he seems both nice and knowledgeable.
Funny, I was in yesterday and met with Tom (yes, another Melbourne menswear gent named Tom!), who was fantastic to deal with. You hit the nail on its head about the fit, I tried on one of the fully canvased suit jackets and it would require probably no alterations for me.
