post #45361 of 53345
On the train home in Syd black suits 4 sizes too large everywhere only balanced by a number of gents with lapels as thick as a tooth pick. Then I see this young chap in a three piece suit and suede oxfords. Looks great except for the fact he's succumb to the heat and unbuttoned everything.

On an unrelated note JimmyHoffa your much younger then I expected.

IMO Not much point considering things wedding related from a pure financial perspective.  Probably reason why weddings are such good businesses.

 

Fuck oath, I'll say!

 

The other half has booked us in for a 'stationary consultation'. What the actual fuck. Bespoke invitations!

Also, went to High Street Armadale to see some wedding registry company - they explained the business model to me, and I just rofl'ed the whole time. Near impossible to keep a straight face when the mark ups are so unashamedly blatant. Putting Wedding in front of your product name, and double the price. Maybe I should be a Wedding Consultant - my charge outs would be double double my base salary!

Those estimates are about right though at $2-3k you wouldn't be getting much out if the photographer besides a memory stick of photos.
Unless you follow my old man's advice and recruit some guy off Gumtree...

 

Yeah the $2-$3k was on the lower end for photography. Although mates rates and all that. 

 

Can I add "Scots" to Asians and Italians giving cash at weddings? Scots are basically asian as far as I'm concerned, in terms of mannerisms and odd customs. They keep money around the house, hidden (then they forget where they hid it), don't trust banks, brush things under the carpet, are obsessed with saving face (even if it means losing out in the long run), and give cash as gifts, call family friends as 'aunty' and 'uncle' even though they aren't related, and love LV.

Recent decisions in Australia suggest that many/most pre nups here are often/usually unenforceable.

Outfit looks good mate but the fit of that jacket looks spot on, waist on it looks supressed but streamlined

Thanks for the all the love (and votes), gents.

Totally deserved, Nabil.

The little jimmy rustle as a result was good fun as well!

I am actually a lot older than I look - I am older than Foxhound (in my 20's). Just make sure you moisturise twice a day and you'll be the same.

That's great to hear. The trousers bunch in the picture, sadly. Thanks PapaRubbery, for similar remarks.

Harsh, but valid. Nabil & Co. have made me reflect.

 

Try to look at the quality content someone provides, not the circumstances in which it is being provided.

Fit does look excellent though, must get on the pJ train.

That makes it a tête-à-tête.

I am leaning slightly on the side and splaying my legs a little which has thrown the trousers off slightly. And my shirt has clearly caught on the cuff of the sleeve jacket. I am very happy with the result and it has exceeded my expectations. It is the mid-grey that Gerry suggested be part of the 'two staple suits to begin with'.

 

I was lucky - Patrick was the one that fitted me. Rem, Rob, Nick and Porter are brilliant, but Patrick 'designed' the block and was able to work adjustments accordingly. If I had the cash, I would have done a navy as well.
