Wish I'd gotten a suit with stripes to be honest, next one :)

the rules feel a bit restrictive for me. But that's his rules for his dress so he can do what he prefers.

What is it with chalkstripes being almost universally found on double breasted suits?

I like stripes - they're conservative enough to get away with CBD and don't wear quickly like nailhead or birdseye.

I've got a navy chalkstripe flannel DB suit, but I've also got a navy chalkstripe worsted SB suit.

I do really like the look of a chalkstripe DB, and (in winter, at least), the DB gets quite a bit more wear than the SB suit.

Elizabeth Bay cafe at the roundabout. I heartily recommend the vegetarian breakfast or the pancakes.

Don't know about cafes, but don't miss the following:

 

Vejuiceria in Llankelly Place.

 

Paperbox Thai in Victoria St (on the Darlinghurst/Paddington side) - best laksa in Sydney.

 

Cafe Messina further along Victoria St - best ice-cream in Australia.

+1 for wider stripe. The wide pin in the fratelli delfino carnet book is awesome. Summer weight too!

I just ordered a light grey 260gram twill with off white thick window pane through PJohnson.. Wide lapels, unlined, barchetta chest pocket and patch hip pockets. Not sure if It'll get much wear as a full suit, mainly wanted it as a sports coat.

Also FYI guys I've now got a full range of cottons for suits and trousers in Suit Shop

Romp - do you get your coats cut differently if you are thinking of using the suit as separates? I love my most recent PJ suit in brown but the coat is too long (or something else) to work as a sportscoat though the fabric and patch pockets are perfect for that.

Thinking I might look into PJ or Suit Shop for a pair of trousers for summer...have looked around and cannot find what I want (partly due to the fit I am after). I wonder what the cost would be....

Something like these (in a light weight fabric with the high rise) -

On pinstripe, I like this from Eidos Napoli (their collection is def. one of the most interesting things in menswear at the moment, in this reader's opinion).

Has anyone experienced both PJ and Suit Shop shirts and can advise as to difference? Also Romp can you advise on SS turnaround time for shirts? Same as suits or quicker?
