Hi guys. Well, it's about time I posted. Long time reader, first time poster.

For anyone who might be interested, my new blog is now live www.timelessman.com.au

It focuses on bespoke tailoring in Australia and fine menswear and accessories.

 

There are still a few glitches to sort out, but they're minimal and for all intents and purposes, the site is ready to go. Likes and shares would be very welcome. But, of course, the responsibility is on me to create content that is worthy of being shared.

 

The first couple of posts cover a bespoke shirt commission with JH Cutler and a discussion with Bijan. 

In the weeks and months ahead, there will be a number of interviews with tailors and business owners, bespoke commissions from the likes of Bijan and others, as well as reviews on a number of items, including some new Gaziano and Girling's and, with a bit of luck, some bespoke Cleverly's.

 

I'll also hope to become more active on Style Forum, which has been such an amazing resource for me over the years.

 

Any comments, feedback or requests are always welcome.

 

Andrew.

The Bijan interview was great. Its sad that UTS cut back his course to make way for more hipster crap. 

 

Reckon you could do a few question/answer type interviews? would be cool finding out people's backgrounds etc.

I think that md might have re-coloured it to be dark navy, actually.

Great looking blog Andrew!  I enjoyed your Dress Down Fridays post, looking forward to reading more...

Ok guys. 

I know I it is wrong to be so overly fixated on details but I guess that is the way with weddings. I need to decide today on my tie otherwise I won't guarantee being able to get it in time. Can I please get some input here. I have basically narrowed my choices down to the following three, each of which is beautiful but all have some problem that makes me 2nd guess myself. what do you think? Note this is to go with my RAF blue peak lapel PJ Suit  and white shirt navy shoes.

 

 Nice glen Check and the safest. I wanted this originally when I was buying Hober but when the swatch arrived it was far too dark and the fabric was stiff and scratchy which didn't see good for a 7fold. This one looks very similar to the hober pic so I'm worried it might still be too dark/harsh. Though Gianni says he has it in dark blue as well.

 

next up

 

This one looks like it would be more the softer shaded glenplaid I was looking for. But those lines are very thick and more importantly it's cashmere, which seems inappropriate for Summer. or is Summer cashmere now a thing?

 

 

I 'think' this would make a nice summery tie pattern but is it wedding appropriate? and once again cashmere...

 

Finally. My new favorite and I would probably purchase in a heartbeat if it was just an impulse purchase....

 

LLpluses. goes with groomsmens grenadine ties, contains a lot of black/white and in a check pattern which both seem to make it look wedding-y (right?), looks amazingly beautiful. Also looks more like a true vintage tie to my untrained eye.

minuses - not a 'true' wedding tie. will the floral motif stand out more irl than in the pics? Will I look at my pics in 20 years and think wtf??

 

 

All these options are coming from Passaggio Cravatte so i'm sure they'll look great regardless but I'm just stuck on this one decision that i seem incapable of making. Help!

Congrats on a great blog. The Bijan piece was a nice read, he is great bloke and very passionate about his craft.

I would to see interview with other tailors such as Lengbespoke, Casa Adamo and Charles Nakle in the future.

Ovlov, my advice would be try to avoid a predominantly white tie if your are wearing a white shirt. The first two glen plaid options would work ok but the others might get a bit lost if your tie-on-shirt is in white- or cream-on-white.

Congratulation on your upcoming wedding. If I had to choose one it will the first tie the other three is too casual for a wedding tie imo.

It's seven fold important to you? There may be other options out there.

Thanks. Yes I love the drape and heft of 7 folds and it is very rare that I get the opportunity to get one. Unfortunately I'm both tall and wide with not much of a neck so regular ties aren't good for me. I've seen some really nice glen plaids around but they are all way to short and skinny for me so i need to go mtm. With such a short time frame I have only been able to find Sam Hober and Passaggio Cravatte who have said they can get it done and delivered in time.

 

You really think the last one is no good? I don't have a good imagination for picturing swatches bt it looks from that pick like with a little lining the non white squares will show up dark/grey from a distance and look something like a shepherds check. with the floral only showing on close inspection... (that's how i would like it to work anyhow:o)

Ovlov, it's just my opinion, but I'd definitely go with the first one, as I really think that it will look best with a mid-blue suit and a white shirt. The first one is the pick of the bunch.

The last tie just doesn't do it for me at all, sorry. I really don't think that it will suit a white shirt as it will look far too similar - just as you wouldn't wear a light blue shirt and a light blue tie (even if it has a printed pattern on it), you wouldn't wear a white shirt and a predominantly white tie.

Gents,

 

Where is a good place in Melbourne to get a sports coat, I've never owned a proper one before and was looking for some advice. Something like this (i know its from mad men, but focus on the coat)

 

 

I've had a quick scan through the forums but haven't found anything as yet.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

Adrian
