A bit of both, but mainly for myself. If someone else doesn't like what I wear then that's their problem.
This is true, but at the end of the day do you really care about what someone else on the street wears?
I wrote up a piece on Oscar Hunt, I'd appreciate it if you all checked it out!
Foxy, good review but I'd really like to see some closer up pictures of the suit and I'm sure some others would too. I'd be interested in a close up of the lapels and the shoulders in particular if you get around to taking more pics.post #47194 of 546863/20/14 at 7:33ampost #47195 of 546863/20/14 at 8:07amQuote:Originally Posted by California Dreamer
Paisley ties found in the op shop. L-R, no name made in Italy, Borrelli, Zegna Couture and RT Best of Class
I've worn all of these to work except the BoC. It's a bit wide; if it was narrower I'd be happy to don this with a white shirt and solid navy or grey suit.

An Obsession mean you have to be like Rick on SZ.
I'd be worried about repeatability with respect to the otto, however I don't own one personally. You've also got a lot of other options that cheap(ish) end of the market that seem more sensible -- What are you actually planing on drinking espresso wise? You're also not going to want to grind to the point they want (between Turkish and espresso) for the otto with a hario. What are you using technique wise on the Aeropress?
I get Pants made mtm. SS / Deer are both 3xx. PJ were ~500 for wool. This is last time I checked. Things may be different now. Rule of thumb is 2/3 for the SC // 1/3 for the pants (maybe with a slight markup).
Also what is all of this talk of cardio at the gym isn’t that like legs day?post #47197 of 546863/20/14 at 12:38pmpost #47198 of 546863/20/14 at 12:56pmJM: I would buy a grinder for the Otto, it comes with an induction heater, probably because it was unpredictable on the stovetop. My current technique is inverse loading, 80 degree water, 2 scoops to number 2, 20 seconds seep, 30 seconds extraction with an Able disc filter, the Hario as you rightly pointed out, can only do coarse grinds but it's fine enough for press coffee.
I occasionally fill to number 4 for Americana. Also like it.post #47199 of 546863/20/14 at 1:51pmpost #47200 of 546863/20/14 at 1:53pmpost #47201 of 546863/20/14 at 1:55pmQuote:Originally Posted by RerunAway
So I've just moved to Sydney and I've been lurking here for a little while (in addition to doing some research) and I have definitely decided to have my next suiting/coating/pantsing (oh yes) experience with Zink and Sons. I've also decided to have a thing made by Bijan perhaps come tax/bonus time however, I do have one question, ahem (Seinfeld voice), what is the deal with P. Johnson? I had a look at the online store and I love many of the ties (especially all of the ones that are sold out) but I don't get the obsession.
Good choice, Rerun. As TimelessMan rightly said earlier in this thread, Zink & Sons is the perfect place to start your entry into the world of true bespoke in Sydney.post #47202 of 546863/20/14 at 2:12pmQuote:Originally Posted by iSurg

You're not going to get correct extraction under say ~92*. Scoop numbers mean nothing to me sadly so I cant offer too much comment, if you could weight it that would be ace. I tend to go ~18.5g of coffee with a 50g preinfuse for 30s with two stirs. I then let is brew for 2 min 30s. I then extract it for 30s being care to NOT get the last ~5ml or so. I find an areopress does a much better job trying to make something much closer to filter / siphon e.c.t than espresso.
Even with a induction plate I'd be surprised if its more stable than say a PID Silvia.post #47203 of 546863/20/14 at 2:17pmAnything with a PID is going to enable more control, I guess. Yeah, I need to get my brewing more exact, so will go pick up an electronic scale, but will hold off the temperature sensitive kettle until later. 92 degrees seems really hot to me, and anything past 85 for me extracts a bit more bitterness than what my palate likes. I stop right before the hiss, so probably go past the 5ml remainder mark. I might try your technique this weekend. Any other tips?post #47204 of 546863/20/14 at 2:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by Pink Socks
Welcome to the thread. PJ pricing questions...you'll find right in.
The usual response is to contact them and really the price all comes down to fabric and what details you want. But to give you an idea I recently picked up a pair of Cotton Trouser which usually cost about $400 (I got mine at a cheaper rate do to a small error in the order).
Just don't ask about shoe topying.
Out of interest, where did you move from and why are you thinking of choosing Zink and Sons and Bijan. Definitely nothing wrong with that, just curious. Also what do they charge for a pair of trousers?
I've moved down from Brisbane for work and the lady. I chose Zink because I really really like everything I've seen by them and they appear to know what they're doing and with a passion. Bijan is a distant goal, I've heard only amazing things about him and the experience is one I look forward to having.
Also, I buy almost everything bespoke/MTM because I'm 5' 7" and fitting my smaller body tends to be a little more difficult. The only exceptions are jeans (which I get altered anyway), T-Shirts (which I usually get from Orlebar Brown because the fit works and they feel great) and more casual items like beach wear (again, OB is great for that purpose).
