Crazy camo tie on SBS tonight. Roberto, Roberto.

Thanks for all the helpful replies regarding getting a quality suit from Melbourne.
I would like to frame the question differently, where would I go to get a suit altered or adjusted. I am not talking about the local dry clean shop or alterations shop in a local mall. I want someone who can look at me wearing my suit and can say I think we need to have the following done to make the suit look better.
Basically I want a quality tailor who can tell me what needs to be adjusted, he do quality work for a reasonable price preferably based in the city but I am happy to make an appointment with him on a weekend and go see him.
Sam Disano is in Parramatta. He is quite old too, but his work has been highly reviewed in the past. Only thing was, his bespoke prices were extremely high, and I think he miscalculated that a fully canvassed suit would be $1950 with an Asian cloth, but $4500 with Dormeuil or Holland and Sherry!!! His shop also smelled a bit 'cheap' - not the aroma of European clothes one expects from a tailors store.
That's great, cheers TFP.
Going to try some of these Sunspel polos...
You know until I joined styleforum I think the only thing I use to notice about how other guys dressed was all the public servants wearing poorly fitting suits. Im not sure its a good thing to actually be noticing now as yesterday in Sydney, meeting with banking and finance execs for the day, I thought I was going to see a lot of nice shoes and suits but instead I saw so many disappointing things...I think I may have paid more attention to the footwear disasters than some of the meetings >.<
Wandered into HB yesterday to have a look at the sale. None of the pieces I've been eyeing off were even on the rack, although I did pick up a couple of pairs of P&S chinos which I'm rather partial to. Noticed that they recoup some of the money from the sale by charging for simple alterations.
