Hi Ernesto.

 

Hamilton Island is worth researching too, world class resorts and beaches, can get a little busy nevertheless a spectacular spot. I think even Oprah paid a visit (or so the misses says)

 

North Stradbroke is a favourite, just south of Moreton Island  - Has gorgeous beaches, surfing, fishing. Very little in the way of cafes etc. One very noice gelateria there though!

Cheers Dusty. Yes, Hamilton Island looks tempting. That's part of the problem, so many tempting pictures on alluring websites promising tropical paradise!

What do you want out of a "beach stay" other than relaxation?


I rather enjoy Northern NSW (outside of Byron) and the North end of the Sunny Coast (North Shore (Mudjimba) to Sunshine Beach / Sans Column) . Both these spots are out of the way / under developed to not feel over commercialized while still having good amenities. I've spent time at most / all the beaches in SEQ / N NSW so if you have a query about any particular area just hit me up.

If you surf PM me and I'll give you low down.

Hi

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.

Can anyone recommend somewhere in Sydney that would be able to do such an alteration? It doesn't appear to be to complicated and hopefully only one or two seems need altering but I would need some expert opinion on what actually needs to be done to correct the problem.

Kent has offered a remake with $200 cost to me, not very happy about this but will see what can be done. What's the going rate for seat/thigh alterations? Obviously this is all a bit vague but I just want an overview of my options.

 

There's not really a reason to use KW here in Aus anymore now that Romp's business is off the ground, is there?

Though the problem with men's shop is that they severely lack in sizes. I have not once clicked on a suit I like and find my size available.

I don't really think there is any reason to use KW anymore in Australia, especially since the dollar has gone down, apart from pocket squares and odd tie bars.  Henry Carter is definitely higher quality in ties.

Hi Gents,
Any good tailor recommendation in Sydney's west ? Maybe around Parramatta area. To alter suit jackets/blazers .I had a good tailor in Hornsby .... but since I moved to Sydney's wild west its a bit far to travel. I also no longer work in CBD.

And just a quick review on cbd alteration tailor.

I have once used con varnavas classic tailoring in town hall arcade. This guy is old and I don't think he has good eye sight(anymore). Stuffed my PRL jacket. Rear vent stitched unevenly and stitched with a f*ing fold(one of the rear vent instead of one fold now there are two fold!). buttons on sleeves un even ..one button over laping other , one button hanging with thread - he used 1 single thread and stitched all buttons from the front side so you can see the threads going from one to another. Button hanging so much out that the brass buttons rings as I walk ! . He has done the same $hit job to my Friend's jacket around the same time . Same un even stitching every part that he altered. Plus parts of it stitched up with a ugly fold. This guy butchered my jacket. This guy don't even press the garments when the job is done. And give in correct completion date . Such a shame this was one of my nicest jacket and I paid him $150 to destroy it.

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. fing02[1].gif

 

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 >.<
