post #34111 of 51756

Hey guys what is the quality/fit like of T.M Lewin? 

I was thinking of ordering new shirts for work (wear a suit) and maybe even a suit from them..?

I find the quality to be quite decent at the price point ($30-50, depending on the sale - and they are *always* on sale in some shape or form). There is a good range of basic fabrics - some of their more adventurous colour/pattern combination can be a little much.

There are three different 'fits': a classic fit which is comfortable without being billowy; a slim fit which is well-suited to those without a paunch; and an extra slim fit which I haven't tried on but, as the name suggests, is probably best suited to the skinny people amongst us.

Suits are also of passable quality though as suits tend to be less 'disposable' than shirting you may be best investing in a nicer suit with all the money your saving in shirts. That being said I would say they're superior to a similarly priced suit from Roger David, etc - especially as you have the ability to buy suit separates to accommodate an odd drop (ie 38 jacket/33 pant)

TM Lewin stuff is value for money (I have a tie and a mac), which in Australia makes them pretty fucking amazing.

I posted it a few pages back, but I tried on this jacket the other day in their Collins St store, and was very impressed--Herringbone would sell the same thing for $600:

Thanks for the responses guys!
Prices seem pretty unbelievable.
I was hoping it wasn't quality of RD to be honest. I've tried things on in there before and have been disappointed with the quality so never purchased.

I think TM Lewin is a very decent place to start a basic wardrobe. Looking at the prices, also a good place to start a formal wardrobe (black tie).

Holy crap speaking of TM Lewin: enter code VIPAUS20 until 14 July for a further 20% off everything. Takes that jacket down to $191. Now THAT is a bargain.

Smegget: you're most welcome.

Late to this conversation, but buy an aeropress and a $1000 grinder. Better coffee than any other alternative.

I'm not the biggest TM Lewin fan. Their shirts are nice, but their jackets have way too much shoulder padding and the colours are rather staid.

Rhodes and Beckett or even MJ Bale on special is a better bet, I reckon.

You can buy great wide shoulder wooden coathangers from Woolworths, I think they're 3 for $5. They're made by a charity for disabled people, but the quality is fine. Obviously they're very heavily supervised.

Herringbone is awesome too. Their shirts and ties were really impressive when I checked them out. 

 

Unfortunately their online presence sucks (they currently don't have a single suit on there) and their pricing isn't quite as competitive as MJ Bale.

I don't like their shoulders, but the body of their jackets fits me to a 'T'. A great slim fit and much better than I expected.

Thanks, I'll check that out next time I'm in a woolies.
