Somehow I ended up with Herringbone as a follower recently, now if only I could use that to my advantage...

Yes, indeed. A lovely watch and it looks very classic, unlike some of Zenith's recent models that have a bit too much going on for my taste.

Help me understand, are the cuffs stitched in or something? And bunch up where? Will slimming the leg, adding a cuff and slimming leg opening help with the way the pants fall?

Thanks for the advice/help.

Cuffs are stitched on the out and inseams and along the hemline ... do you have enough fabric for a cuff? 4-5cm is my preferred width.

Has anyone used these guys?:

I meant to order some suit hangers from Le Noued Papillon while they were on sale but forgot, can't really afford them at full price.

Have you had a look at Mei & Picchi?

They're in Helen St in Newstead. I can't remember their pricing, but I picked up a lot of hangers from them a few years back for very, very reasonable prices and they were excellent quality. They have different ranges available for different prices, so it's definitely worth having a look there before ordering online.

Edited to add: I just had a look at the "mycoathangers" website and they are pretty damned cheap, especially for trouser hangers.

I might have to pick up a set but it look as though the minimum order is for 25 trouser hangers - is anyone else in Brisbane interested in sharing an order?

wow that looks cheap!

 

but i cant seem to find suit coat hangers i.e. with full bodied shoulder rather than thin and flat

 

edit: found these 

 

Look OK - i might try 5 .. but the rest of my hangers are black lacquer which i cant find in a curve shoulder option?

Pretty excited Suit Shop is having its soft launch next week in Melbourne and looks like a lot of the booking slots have been filled! Let me know or enquire here if you'd like Matt to book you in over coming weeks. We may also have the Sydney option open sooner rather than later fing02[1].gif

Rob, you should have a launch party or trunk show, we Melbourne members love a free drink a chance to meet up, discuss sartorial matters and view new products.

Looking forward to hearing people's experiences. I think there is a gap in the market for Suit Shop to fill nicely. On a personal note, I can speak very highly of the customer services Rob provides (via O&J).

Congratulations Rob, Matt et al and good luck.

Thanks for the feedback gents - my aim was to get something in a 'classic' styling and I was quite drawn to the symmetry of this particular watch. It has an elegance about it which applealed much more than any other watches in the range.

 

Interesting point JM - I was looking at some of the styles with the window through to the mechanics on the front face (the tourbillon ones do this as well) and whilst interesting to look at for a few seconds, I find it really detracts from the overall experience and just makes the watch face look messy.

A big +1 to this. I've had nothing but good customer service from Rob (via O&J) and based on that, I have every expectation that this new venture will do very well.

 

I do hope you have some sort of a launch event - if nothing else, then for the Melbourne people to see you face to face. Hell, even just come down for a drink smile.gif
