Anyone had any recent success/experiences with Nialma? Apparently they have a guy in Melbourne that will measure you up and that means 4 MTM Thomas Mason Silverline's for around $120 each.

 

Is this the best value in that price range? Any other options in Melbourne?

Just got some trousers back from alterations today. Shoddy work - cuff isn't even and the out seam on the cuff doesn't match up to the outseam on the rest of the trouser. The mind boggles - how can simple alterations be so readily botched?!

This PJohnson Thomas Mason weave shirt is so comfortable and feels so good around my upper body. All y'all need to get on this Thomas Weave game ASAP.

It's depressing just how incompetent some alterations places are. I've had things done entirely the wrong way, virtually ruining them, and when I've attempted to discuss the faults with people, I've been assured quite heatedly that I'm the one in the wrong and that their way is the right way - and this is after they ignored or contravened specific requests by me about the desired alterations! Sigh... Good tailors are like good mechanics - once you find one, stick with them.

Anyway, here are a few photos of today's outfit:

Details:
- Brioni jacket;
- Land's End blue-and-white university stripe OCBD shirt;
- Vanda neat print silk tie in burgundy;
- HK MTO check trousers with one deep, reverse pleat on each side; and
- Santoni chilli-coloured punch captoe balmorals.

I think the hem of the pants is not designed to be perfectly straight. The hem is suppose to be slightly lower at the back than the front - which gives it that nice break.

This is not right - a nice break is from the height and width of the leg opening

Just use small words with me and don't smirk at my boxy corrected grain shoes

Randwick Boys half way between silvertail and fibro

also good advice on cutting back on carbs and add 80 min cardio at least 4 sessions a week and get HR as high as you can achieve for at least 50 min of that and (sigh) cut out the booze

Yes, but the hem of the pants is suppose to be cut at a slight angle. Not be 'dead straight'. The back of the leg is ever so slightly longer than the front; about a cm or two difference.

Michael Sy you've let the cat out of the bag!

 

Word on the street is that you'll be doing the measuring for ROMP and PJ's latest venture!
