I like the detailing and contrast stitching on the inner pockets and lining. Very sharp. Is that a standard detail Rene puts on his suits?

Styleforum Top Picks
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:
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).
I am still very amateur when it comes to coffee machines. My good friend who's a barista at Mecca at Circular Quay suggests making filter coffee at home: inexpensive and consistent. Plus, you get the autonomy to try different kinds of freshly roasted/ground beans.
Smegget: you're most welcome.
Late to this conversation, but buy an aeropress and a $1000 grinder. Better coffee than any other alternative.
Speaking of Aldi, they had some wide shouldered wooden suit hangers in stores yesterday. I think the stock came in last week but there might be some left in your local store for those interested.
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.
