Yeah two different looks/styles. All depends again on context and in this scenario what one does for work. I personally prefer the unstructured look and id wear it for work or casually but thats me. Vox's clothes albeit expensive/nice are generally not my cup of tea nor should i expect them to be as I am not him.

 

With reference back to Christian Bale's costumes in Batman (lol) - I actually quite like how they started off with alot of structure, padded shoulders etc to portray a strong ego character and then by the final the contrast he has with soft, unstructured suiting and is a good illustration on the two styles.

Jason, I remember seeing an interview with Gay Talese where his coats all had pocket squares already in them as he took them out of the wardrobe.

To save yourself time (but not money) you could store all yours with a white linen square.

Be a menswear scout, be prepared.

Wow what a great fit. This has to be a bespoke suit. Waist suppression is perfect, nice open quarters and clean - blends in with the whole jacket. Love the pants very close to zero break. I doubt even a mtm jacket can be done to this perfection.
I thought of a navy DB. I will look around a bit more before pulling trigger . Would love to see your db suit fit.

I believe most of Vox's stuff is these days, but fits like this OTR aren't impossible if you're not super oddly sized. I believe jefferyd (Who is a spectacular tailor is his own right.) has a fair few items of varying price which fit similarly. I'll see if I can find his blog in my history for you to have a look at.

So I popped into Arthur Korderas in South Yarra today to get my Canali dinner jacket altered. I've lost a lot of weight over the past few years due to riding my bike more. He said that earlier that week he had a few suits dropped off from the Melbourne Zegna shop for tailoring. Two of the suits retailed for $11,000, one for $20,000.

WTF?!?

I asked if they were cashmere/mohair/vicuna or something similar, he replied they were 100% wool. Apparently it was Zegna's latest 'super dooper' fabric, although Arthur reckoned the Dormeuil 'Ambassador' Super 180's is better. I had a flick through the sample book when I was there, check out 180225. It looks like plain Navy but once you start warping it, it creates its own optical illusions. Would be great for a fun suit.

Any idea which Zegna suits/fabrics he's referring to?

Re Razors - havent shaved in 4 months and the mrs hates it. Fit picks to come

Mine are Paris with cashmere lining.

Excellent., have just ordered bespoke is Paris/Cashmere/Black and Paris/Cashmere/Old Gold

My advice to those ordering CJ gloves:

1. Even unlined is pretty warm... not sure you'd need anything more in Australia unless you get cold hands. Unlined is plenty comfortable and gives you more dexterity too. I certainly wouldn't get anything more than a thin lining, you'll overheat.

2. Getting external seam stitching around the fingers, while looking "bespoke" and being more traditional, reduced dexterity since you have these big seams everywhere.

YMMV.

I have been reading about Peccary gloves and notice CJ has them there are also a couple of Italian makers one who supplies to DJ's I believe. From what i have read they recommend that you get them unlined.

Any thoughts on them in terms of quality over a more traditional kid leather and as I am in Canberra would they be suitable for here unlined. The two pairs of gloves I own are both lined, one is for casual weekend ware the other for work.

IIRC, CJ does not use Peccary but rather Carpincho. I don't know if that makes a difference to you, or any practical difference.

Yeah Jeffrey cuts some great coats, very clean all over also. If you are learning and want an indication of how a double breasted suit should be cut and more importantly fit, you could do worse than use this as inspiration - Personal taste aside, there is little that can be found to fault here, it's essentially perfect.

Good news for those with a mortgage! NAB have been the first bank to pass on the full 0.25%.. I'm hoping Westpac do also
