Actually, I would say 'mistakes', nothing is wrong in the world of #personalstyle.

What colour did you get TBM?
I ordered a pink one but got the size wrong so am awaiting a white one in its place (pink sold out).

I find this thread to be far more hospitable to newer entrants to the menswear 'game' than many of the other threads of SF, which is great. 

I agree with Streetminimal, looks really stylish, don't change too much.

I got the chambray in blue denim colour. Shame the pink is all sold out. I got a size M, I thought I'd be an L but Rob told me to get an M and he was spot on. They're so good, I'm sure you'll love yours, PS.

^^ Think I have the same trousers. Great outfit CW.

For anyone doing the MTM shirt thing, or just interested in how shirts should fit in general, I thought this post I found from Despos in another thread might be of interest:

"
Measure the shirt flat on a table, shirt has every button buttoned. Measure across the chest at the bottom of the armhole. Make sure the shirt is stretched out flat and not bunched up anywhere.

If you have a 40" chest and add 3" to the circumference of the shirt chest you will get 21.5" when you measure the shirt the way described. Total measure is 43", this is a very "snug" fit. This may be way too tight for some or just snug to others. Depends on your tolerance for a close fit. 40" chest + 2" would be a very tight fit. Not recommended. A deep breadth would pop a button.

40 + 4" is a trim fit. Measuring across the chest will be 22"

40 + 5" is normal fit by today's standards. Even + 6" would be right for some.
Those big baggy BB shirts are something like +8" or sometimes more in the chest.

Works the same for the waist except don't use your trouser waist measurement. Use the measurement over any love handles. The largest part of your waist above the trouser waist. if you use your trouser measurement, the shirt won't fit.

If you want a good fit without much extra fabric but not over trim try +5" on the chest and +4" on the waist. Again, how comfortable these formulas work depend on the individual and your body type. What is loose or tight is very subjective to each individual.

Cheers, yeah they are my favourite trousers. I really want a pair of the brown flannels too which are on sale at the moment but I'm still on the fence on account of the delays and slipping communication with HY at the moment. I'll give it a few weeks and re-assess, hopefully things will be a bit smoother by then.

Re HY I ordered a pair of pants on 4/2, got shipping confirmation on the 10/2 and they were in my hands on the 18/2 so no issues from my end.

The shipping delays could also be snow-storm related.

Re flannel trousers a friend sent me a link to these http://www.pakeman.co.uk/category/167/Flannel_Trousers appear to be quite popular on AAAC

That's good to hear but I know a few other members (LonerMatt I think?) have had a lot of problems of late with no confirmation of shipping and emails, PM's etc un-answered for weeks. I've also not had any problems in the past and knowing the reputation Jamison has, I'm sure the delays and issues will be short lived but still, bad service is bad service regardless of the product.

Jamison quite clearly needs an assistant.
