And here's a pic of me in a Thomas Fisher blue birdseye wool suit from Amy (the former a not so great smartphone pic):

2 x Herring shoes at a great price
 
noone has commented.
What am I doing wrong?
 

Are they second hand? Or did Street point you in the direction of Herring?

MAybe I missed the post but amazing you asked for MTM advice and no-one has mentioned PJohnson or Suit Shop. Both available in Melbourne. PJ is a bit pricey but I can personally attest to the great quality and service of Suit Shop. Pm Romp on here and he can give you more info an tee up an appointment.

I've actually heard of Suit Shop quite a few times (mainly around here), however was slightly put off by their website (or rather lack of one) and the assumption that if its a local tailor its going to cost 3 times more than my current one. Seems as though everyone talks highly of them, I'll have to give them a yell as well and see what they have. Thanks guys ;)

Thanks man, appreciate you taking the time to track those down for me. Unfortunately the firewall behind my current PC blocks all SF pics for some reason, so I'll have to have a look at them when I get home tonight. If I can be even more annoying, any chance one of those pics includes a shot from inside the jacket (ie. lining)? I find that I'm a bit pedantic for the finer details...

 

Cheers guys

Sure, I'll PM you a couple pics.

Done.

Chich, I know there are a lot of pages to go through, but try to read the earlier posts in this thread. Lots of good photos and suggestions. Just a thought. Welcome to the thread. Also to sirsammyd.

Unfortunately, if you're here to discuss RMW or chinos, that position has been filled and you may need to move elsewhere ;p
post #37911 of 57111

Yeah it would probably be a really good idea and worth the read...but going through almost 38,000 posts, I'm pretty sure someone will eventually notice that at work :P

...something I'll have to find time for at home ;)

 

Cheers guys

The other thing is tumblr. Quite a few members have some cool accounts to follow.

I was once told by a friend (pure physicist) that tumblr and instagram are mainly for 13 yo girls. I promptly corrected him and said, "That's pintrest, FYI."

lol. As a pure physicist he might interested to know that tumblr is a place where nothing happens.

I've always liked the adjective 'pure' in front of a scientific discipline. It makes me wonder what 'impure mathematics' etc might entail.

Doing equations to make your calculator spell 8008135?

LOL, reminds me of terms such as "legal action", "proper channels" and "appropriate measures".

I like the idea of studying dirty maths - it would have to be more interesting than differential calculus!

Chich - we've only been around since July but hoping our website will be updated next week. I received all of your queries and I think easiest if you just chat with Matt and look/feel the cloth we have on offer.

Thanks, you'll be glad to hear that I won't be offering any knowledge at all on RMW. Probably won't have much to offer but I am here to learn a bit. I've only just taken an interest in the aesthetics of one's attire fairly recently. Previously I've stuck to the safety of jeans, tee shirts and sneakers (nice sneakers though!!).

This kind of brings up my reaction to HerringbonePete's disappointment at no one commenting on his new shoes. Since only recently started to dress with some pride in my appearance I think I can say that it is just that. It is pride. It is more than just a pair of shoes that 'look' nice and that people will comment on. It is the self confidence that comes with knowing that on your feet are a really beautifully crafted pair of shoes. Shoes which you took time to choose to compliment the pants/ suit/ socks/ tie or even hair!! or what ever else you may have decided to wear. It sounds corny but it's like that womens make up add "because you're worth it". You can tell that some one is wearing nice shoes not just by the shoes they have but the way they carry themselves and you can't expect to get compliments from people on how wonderfully confident you look today.

Differential Calculus is not "pure" math. :/ I suppose you can make an argument for certain generalizations however.

Mate, they were second hand shoes from someone that doesn't have a proven history of good shoe care. Sure they were a good shoe for the price sold to him, but you can't expect to be looking your best when you are wearing someone elses old shoes!

 

People don't hand out compliments like the MX at a train station.
