post #23161 of 55256

have you guys seen the new meermin styleforum mto shoe? fuuuark, it will look amazing

post #23162 of 55256

Picked up a new P Johnson piece today. Trying out the latest Loro Piana 3ply blue-grey weave s120s. Open weave super light and its navy with a grey thread. Matte yet lustrious.

 

Fully handfinished, half lined, notch lapels, soft shoulder, welt/flap pockets, kissing buttons, button fly, 2inch cuff and the best touch...

Patrick added some camo pocket detailing as a little surprise (he knows me well)

 

LOVE the camo detailing.. ill try to get a better picture tomorrow

I suspect if it was a slightly lighter weight (btw I think that most Oz suits are too fine /light these days - I've seen some respected forum brands second hand - they don't wear {longevity and drape/fall} well - they wear well in terms of hot climate) and grey or navy it wouldn't be a problem here.
I'm not sure about "not for business" here - outside a very very narrow range of businesses/fields (or possibly even companies) any suit and tie is "dressed up"
Any one else care to chime in?

It's very English. Straight lines, sharp silhouette. Quite different from the soft shouldered Neapolitan style preferred by the iGentry. It's also very well cut, which a lot of American suits aren't.

I can see how this might jar a little on this forum.

No problem - I didn't know whether to post here or not since there weren't too many shoe shots. For the record, I came away with nothing but a smile on my face and a warm fuzzy feeling smile.gif

QFT. And not just among our US colleagues, frankly.

Do you get paid when you are sick and on holidays?

Fair point given the overheads mentioned and we are talking about City prices. Note however, besides measurements and fittings on site, Argy's complete all alterations off site in their warehouse in Surry Hills.

I mention expensive and it's all relative. I'm accustomed to the cheap rates charged by tailors out in western Sydney (Parramatta, Fairfield & Cabramatta).

How much are Leiluna charging for repairs? If you're pleased with results and costs from your current tailor then I don't see why you would change.

Don't get me wrong though, Argy's certainly do a decent job. Andrew Wilkes is the man you need to talk to. From my conversations with Andrew, I understand that Hugo Boss and Harrold's also send their alterations over to them as well -- I've seen the backroom full of their suits. I get my tailoring done at Argy's purely for convenience sake (as I work within Chifley Tower).
