While I'm not fond of the execution, I commend you on your efforts nonetheless mate. Perhaps its due to the fact you are wearing sunglasses indoors that strikes me as odd.

I caught your comment on wearing ties to university, if you can wear it well as part of an ensemble rather than for the sake of wearing a tie please feel free to experiment with it -- especially if you are in a course where the campus hoodie isn't the personal uniform. I wear a sport coat and tie most days, it won't alienate you from your peers unless you wear it with a snooty attitude.

^Fox, I like that. The Grensons are nice shoes that look as part of a casual outfit.

Here are a few, rather belated photos of an outfit from earlier in the week.

As it is feeling a bit cool here (although nothing like Canberra, I hear!), I pulled out the winter wear:

I think wearing a sports coat and tie will actually look less contrived than just wearing a tie with a sweater. Wearing a tie without a jacket is off limits for most, particularly with chinos. It's just trying a bit too hard.

How does SuitShop compare with P Johnson? I'm keen to know what the differences are; not so much in price but the differences in fabric choice, construction and details. I've been relying on Patrick almost exclusively and I've been very happy with my last few suits (not withstanding a few details, but really just minor quibbles) but the last few times I've been in I've been dealing with Remy anyway and I haven't seen Patrick for a while.

 

I'm very happy with P Johnson and budget permitting, I'm keen to stick with them for suits, but I would like to experiment with a few odd jackets and it would be great if someone has tried both can give us a perspective on the main differences.

Hi Superfudge

 

Patrick was in Italy recently.

 

Re suitshop and pjohnson i could write lots here as the two are quite different but lets keep it short.
 
Both businesses are grounded on the same philosophy and aim to re-introduce the public to sartorial wear in a relevant and accessible way, through education, guidance, passion, expertise and value for money. 
 
We share the same technology and property in making individual patterns and some aspects of cloth supply. And both business offer great scope in optioning.
 
Suit Shop is introductory to tailoring, business-wear orientated and at a price point that makes tailoring accessible to alot of guys. Its more streamlined in our process and offers convenience and efficiency. 
 
PJohnson takes this to the next level and takes an artisanal approach to tailoring - lighter weight, lighter structure and largely handmade or finished for depth of character. PJohnson has a much greater range of options and cloths and higher levels of construction i.e. deconstructed, completely unpadded and uncanvassed jacketting options available. 
 
Both aim to offer incredible value at their price points with a product that is genuine, high quality, relevant and modern.

PS - Owen and James is now the first stockist for 3Sixteen denim - should be the cheapest option for anyone locally wanting to but 3sixteen denim.

 

We started with the SL-100 and the CS-100 cuts (i.e. modern slim and a classic full leg based on a 1947 501)

Awesome. What's your returns policy going to be around these Rob? Just asking because sizing issues have been the reason I haven't pulled the trigger on a pair of shadow selvedge ST-120X's.

 

PS, I think this is a great move from you, great way to introduce people to O&J through another very popular product that isn't stocked in Oz.

Now the only question is how much cuff you can rock on a pair of jeans!

 

The usual 5 cm?

Many Modern Tailor customers in here? I'm needing a plain white OCBD and was wondering what the best fabric is (wanting more of a PRL OCBD cloth, not like the MT trial shirt which is terrible).

Would normally go with Luxire but I don't trust them to ship it in time.

Have already asked in the official MT thread but its dead.

Good news about the 3sixteens - I just bought a pair of the STs and I love them. The denim is incredibly soft, however would've preferred a slightly slimmer fit (the STs are not as slim fitting as either the Nudie Grim Tims, which fit me perfectly, or APC Petit Standards which also fit well).

So they'll be cheaper than US$230 shipped?

foxy - welcome.

Makes a change from the usual here of pics of young blokes trying to dress like old men and old men trying to dress like young blokes.

And I promise I won't say anything about your sticky uppy hair do.
