Gents, new to the sartorial journey and looking for recommendations for a tailor in Sydney CBD (preferably close to the Circular Quay / Rocks area).
Also (and this may be a silly question), will your tailor provide you with your measurements as a standard part of the service? I've been obsessing over Epaulet chinos but don't want to take the risk ordering based solely on waist measurements.
Given your location I would recommend M&R Tailors. He's got the skills. Be open to his suggestions, but firm in what you want. For example if I let him he finishes all my trousers an inch too short and then shows me a picture of a sock-less Italian as justification. Also, always call up the day before you collect in case he's forgotten.
I hope the above hasn't made him sound bad. He really is very good and is a tailor not an alterations guy. I'm sure he would be fine giving you measurements for the Epaulets.
Oli got a bit of stick over minimising his shoe collection but in truth I have a similar collection and a will to not go overboard. Only I add brogues to the mix.
I was at Katrinas this morning getting jacket sleeves shortened and I had to be firm to get the sleeve where I wanted it. "Are you sure?" "Yes!"
The boy in there didn't realise this was my second go with them on the jacket so naturally I had to be.
Anyone got any recommendations for where to purchase a good black or brown leather belt online? mainly for wear with suits/trousers, preferably under $100 per belt would be good
Cheers in advance,
Do you need it asap? I cannot recommend Equus enough. They are absolutely fantastic. I have five of their belts. They make them to your size. They take about a three weeks from when you order it to receiving it though, which is the only real downside, but that's MTM for you.
