Features: soft shoulders, regular notched lapel, patch pockets, 2-r-3 buttons and side pleats.

Any suggestions as to the fabric? I'm thinking a super merino.

Went really out of control. I think after such rampage I feel a completeness in my wardrobe and I should be able to keep it tight for next 6 months. Last 4 weeks 4 pairs of shoes including 3 suedes. Received 2 new belts today . A double breasted blazer in slate blue flannel. Another pair of grey pants by Mabitex. Total shirts purchased 7. HY pants received 3 last week and 4 in mail. 2 pairs of Rayban aviators . RLBL cardi, 2 pairs of shorts , and a polo. I think I missed few things. I need just one more sports jacket a flannel pow in grey or brown. Actually make that 2 second one in navy with light blue windowpane.

I could be wrong, but I think that the wait time for a ToJ jacket is currently something like 6 or 7 months.

That will hopefully dissuade you from ordering and keep your resolve strong!

Summer tweed* makes about as much sense as "winter linen".

So I kopped some lovely jacketing from huddersfield cloth's promo, and am after someone who can do MTM sportscoat with it. I know PJ's offer CMT, and I have a rough price guide in mind - but is there anyone else who I can drop my cloth off to in Melb/Australia? 

 

Or am I best pursuing GY in HK or something similar?

I should add, I have no aversion to getting PJ's to do it - but I can see the MTM process being potentially difficult if the jacket would have to be shipped back to italy between stages? Or is this the norm?

It's currently about a 35 weeks waiting period.

He re-hand stitched areas which had been initially hand stitched which I was happy with (for all I know this is common however).

It was $95 for taking in at the sides and taking up the sleeves. I felt that was very fair. The coat looked way better, he was able to more or less take it a size down.

One thing I was surprised with though -- he seemed to favour a fairly snug fit, though did not suggest taking up the sleeves to be 'aggresively' short, i.e not show much cuff. In retrospect I probably should have pushed to have them taken up a bit more, but they look good.

Anyway, just thought I'd put my review out there as I've found information on this sort of thing in Brisbane is hard to come by.

I agree he does like to have the sleeves a tad long. Same with trousers.
Ive been there enough times to get discounts which is pretty awesome

I think we need a toj intervention.

@Nolvadex

 

I just took some trousers there today to be shortened, cuffed and tapered... Hopefully turn out as well as my sports coat.

That's a big commitment. I wouldn't bet against you developing a gothic ninja style by then, in which case I'll offer you $3.50 each for your TOJs.

That is a significant shop.
