What colour and type of shirts do you guys tend to go for at night time (pub, dinner with jacket), and what kind of things should I do to my suit and tie combo to make it less business and more dressy?  ie white shirt?

Good thinking, I called Herringbone and they use uno mode whilst henry bucks use Katrinas. Decisions! I'm leaning towards Katrinas.

I had stuff done at Katrinas relatively recently and it was decent enough, certainly both cheaper and better work than that from the butchers that M J Bale use.

I went to Carbone to have some jackets and shirts done last year. They took for-freaking-ever because he prioritises tailoring over alterations every time. After waiting weeks I collected my shirts and went down to Sam's in Docklands. I had them back the next day.

Oh, and Carbone charges like a wounded bull.

MJ Bale has changed who they use to Elite in Richmond. This is same as PJ and all work is good.

Uno's Mode is hit and miss.

Hey guys, ran into a few people, met a few more and got PM'd by some more about a meet up. Apologies for the late update, but you know - life happens.

 

MELBOURNE

This Thursday (4th of July)

6pm - Supper Club (Level 1/161 Spring St)

 

I can only hand around for an hour, but I hope to see plenty of you.

 

Questions, objections, thoughts, feelings, etc just post or PM, or text/call (if you've got my digits).

 

Again, sorry for the late notice, was trying to juggle a few things!

always depends on your personal style

 

Im a white shirt guy - clean, crisp, layers well and is versatile. Sometimes id wear a semi cutaway, longer point white shirt with tie and suit to work, come home, throw on a pair of jeans, sports coat, remove the tie and put on some brown suede boots and im ready to roll for the evening.

 

plus its the the brad pitt, ryan gosling, george clooney crew staple and chicks love them icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

That's good to know!

Not sure if this is flagrantly incorrect, but has anyone had success with those online MTM suit places? I'm thinking of taking the plunge by seeing if they can handle a simple white shirt first, kind of like Giotto's circle test. :p

 

The suit itself will be an experiment of sorts to try a particular set of details i have in mind.

Where are you getting that information? My Gilt email says none of that.

That's a great deal - didn't think they'd deliver bulky items like that to Aus! Expecting in August here so will keep an eye out...

Your fitpics are going to be rad, with your August date.

I'd get OCBD button downs.
