BTW, I finally got my Carminas in Paris.  Lucky it was soldes season, cos' the prices in Paris are at least 20% mark-up to their online store.  Great service from Frederic though.  Due to rain, I have not worn the shoes yet. The ruby shell oxfords are screaming for attention.  If they wear in well, quite likely I will order more shoes online since I know my lasts sizing now.

Pics or it didn't happen.

wow i bought one of my carminas in paris and they were cheaper than armoury prices .. dont know if it was the exchange or the list price cheaper.

 

cant reveal all the details on the mtm business yet (too many spies on the interwebz) but i got my first trial suit last month and I was mucho impressed. Actually I might take a #selfie tmr and get SF'ers thoughts

Romp, Paris is still cheaper than Armoury in HK.  Just that Carmina online is the best prices of them all.

Ill still be around to handle any questions etc and also hopefully soon be able to let you know about a new MTM suit project that I am working on. biggrin.gif

Cool. There's a definite gap in the market there between the MJ Bale and P Johnson price ranges. Something similar to what Kent Wang and Indochino do in the US. It'd be good to have a local option.

If it goes ahead, when do you plan to have it up and running?

understood!

 

i just bought this at Capsule .. wish it had a brass or copper buckle instead of black but wasnt going to pay $60 more to get one online. I got standard width - skinny might have been a good option with jeans too .. will have to try on later. Its really light so Ill feel odd wearing it until the patina builds

It's cheating a little, but you could always hang it out the window in the summer sun for a week to get things started....

Plans at the moment are a soft launch in March in Melbourne and Sydney maybe around June. This will be better than indochino/KW as we will do the fitting/measurements to ensure right fit and yes pricing will be sharp. 

 

edit: and worth mentioning that the fitters will have alot of experience which is important

Very nice. Even you Sydneysiders know that, in terms of style, Melbourne is where it's at.

Very interesting, do I dare hold off my next MTM commission? puzzled.gif

Keep us posted Romp.

It pains me to agree but then there is the Sin City aspect....mwink[1].gif

Exciting news Romp! What P Johnson has accomplished in the local market demonstrates the possibilities...

 

Gents l have asked this question previously but it possibly got lost in translation.... In regards to cuffing pants, what are peoples thoughts. I'm talking suit pants. Also what size cuff?

 

I have a couple of new suits and l thought l would roll the dice and hear what the local knowledge thinks. Stuff the cuff or go with it?

 

Appreciate any advice. Thanks

I cuff, where possible. I like the sense of weight it adds, esp. if I have little to no break. 2 inches.

All of my trousers have cuffs, as I find they add weight to the hem of the pant and create a cleaner line through the leg when coupled with no break. As far as pleats+cuffs, I have no opinion to offer as my trousers are all flat front.
My cuffs are all 2 inches as I'm just over 6 feet tall. Cuffs kind of help you to distinguish yourself from the others as they are not very common these days.

Depends on your height.  Cuffs do no favours to short/pudgy.

2inch (5cm) cuff standard on most of my suits otherwise its no cuff. I feel like my pants arent quite finished now days if I dont have a cuff though.

 

I also have a bit of a taper so my leg openings are about 7.5-8inch and sit top of my shoe (just hides my sock) - cuff tends to make the bottom of pants look wider than is so something to bear in mind.
