That they can't. However I will refrain from acknowledging that statement was to me, until I am a 'beggar'.
I'm in no rush.
It's not a necessity to have this particular suit, more of an interests to acquire.

I appreciated your response. I never said I didn't want that suit, that you kindly posted. I just noted that I would prefer a darker suit and leaving my options open rather than jumping into the first one that has come my way.

Thanks for the response, I would be looking for a bit darker colour.

 



It's finding lapels that wide off the rack that will be the challenge. That's what is quite unique about that jacket - the lapels cover over 50% of the chest area. Australian retailers can save material costs by having skinnier lapels - especially at the $600 (for a suit) range. The colour isn't so much of a problem.

Sorry, I don't mean to be snarky. The original I posted I think looks pretty similar to the one you posted - with both examples clearly photographed under different lighting conditions. Without seeing both suits in person it's impossible to tell if they are several shades apart or indeed, identical.

Also, with a budget of $600, you're definitely not a beggar in an absolute sense but you certainly can't be too choosy about exact colour matches, especially if you want to maintain a modicum of quality. If you are planning on going MTM then yes, be as choosy as you like, but you'll have to spend significantly more than $600.

I really like this - yellow beige, quite uncommon. I also like his tie.

No need to be sorry mate, just wanted to clear things up.

However, you are certainly correct when it comes to the lighting. That did not come into mind when pushing your post off for further options.
I have bought many things that are one colour on site than it completely differs in-store.

I'll enquire with a MJ store to request further pictures of in-store.

It just wouldn't look the same on someone with ginger coloured hair.

Patrick is very good at playing to his strengths.

Brooks Brothers opening in DJ's Brisbane. So I assume they are opening in all state capitals. I applied for a job there (looking for a second job). If I'm asked to attend an interview (no retail experience however), it might be ::funny:: to show up like this:

If you are going to do it, then...



Good luck with the interview.

Having had white and off white suits in the past let me give you the benefit of my experience. DON'T.
Unless its suit No. 25.
Or you are onstage or in show biz.

Ok, so too much hand talking results in beer all over the PJ suit, not happy.

Is there any point in sponging it with water etc to either clean it entirely or prepare it better for dry cleaning, or should I just dry clean it and be done with it (assuming I can find one I trust with the suit..)?

Thanks in advance for the collective wisdom!
