Yeah as a few have indicated we have a new mtm suit venture with a soft launch for early April in Melbourne.

Pricing will start at $750 with a great cloth selection all the way through the loro piana and ariston books. Matt who some of you may already know having trained at PJT will be our first tailor on the ground doing fittings and we will be operating on a travelling tailor basis. Once we have your pattern dialled your future ordering process will be a breeze.

I'll release more info after launch but if anyone from Melbourne is interested feel free to send me a pm with your email and phone number so we can call you for a fitting in April.
Ok thanks, is there a name I should look out for?

Taking number one son (who is 4) camping on Cockatoo Island tonight. Should be fun.

During my suit research I notice a few companies who ask for self measurement, indochino, instichu etc. to me that seems a little strange, what if I f#ck it up? I'm also keen to chat to my tailor! Should these be avoided or am I being too cynical? (forgive me if this has already been discussed I'm new to this game. New job, new wardrobe. Previous job was fairly casual attire). Hmmm I'm confused.

You can be measured by Institchu staff, I think IIRC. Their tailoring is done in Thailand, though, so I can't vouch for their quality.

^^ I wouldn't buy a suit based purely on measurements, unless I knew them with absolute certainty. Too much can go wrong (different ways of measuring, etc.).

i'd start off with OTR for your first couple of suits. then when you know precisely what you want, move your way to MTM. Romp has a MTM suiting service coming up, i'd touch base with him.

I want to try out about 10 other samples I have chosen before making a decision. The Histoires de Parfums scents look very interesting. I would be grateful for other recommendations on complex wood/leather/tobacco scents. Not Creed Tabarome though.

Memoir blends well with my skin chemistry, but becomes kind of muted. I am undecided whether it is too faint, or whether it is elegantly muted.  It was only a very small spray, not the usual dosage.  The subtle vetiver base combines very well with the wood and leather. I cannot smell any tobacco though.

I've recently joined an Aussie splits site, and I've posted a request there for you. I could get you some for $2.40/ml plus shipping.

If HdP is your go, you should get onto their samples. Any six samples for 10 euro, can't go wrong.

Maison Francis Kirkdjian has a similar deal of 4 2ml samples for 12 euros shipped. Well worth it to try their Oud

I think they get you to be measured at an alteration chain? Better than a diy but not sure how they go with shoulder drop, posture and arm angle etc.

We use try on's to be as precise as we can

That's a bit "back to the future", as Patrick's business was called Suit Shop for a few years until he decided to change to an eponymous business name.

I've used both and if you get a family member/friend to help and you are really careful in following their instructions it can work out well. The only problem I had was shoulder type. I thought I had 'regular' shoulders but once I received my jacket it was bunching under the collar with excess material. I had it remade with square shoulders and now it fits great.

 

I had to do a lot of reading about how jackets/suits should fit (which brought me here) before I felt comfortable ordering though.

I quite like and seriously thought about buying a chronoscope:

Question - if someone has a reasonably normal physique (5'10-6', 75-85kg with little more than long arms) what advantage does M2M offer over OTR?
post #27914 of 52349
^ Choice of fabric, cut, details such as pocket types, etc. I assume you mean apart from fit.

I think the question is, what is a 'normal' physique!
