Biella in Italy is renowned for its shirting. Can teach you to iron a shirt and tie a tie like an expert. but you are on your own in this arena for my input. Fantastic cut length services available here, so bound to be there as well.
apologies

I have one of those at home Mrs GF was a wardrobe mistress for theatre and film in a former life. She does an excellent job on my shirts. Don't think I would let her press my ties to be honest.

Hi gents;

Suggestions for tuxes in Sydney? Can't do MTM/bespoke I'm afraid, got called up for a gig in 3 weeks. Otherwise been looking at buying online from suitsupply, but as always trying stuff on would be preferable. 

Not sure of your size but I'm selling one. Check link below.

This is my favourite background for shoe pics so far, plus the strategic placement of your right foot on flower.

Nice shoes, much thirst

Nice, PoP. Is that by any chance a Sartore jacket?

 

You should cross-post this fit to the WAYWRN thread.

Hi All

A lot of discussion involving cedar in its various forms. It could be apocryphal, but I had heard cedar was good for warding off moths in a wardrobe.

A young trouser maker from London who was with me for a short while, had heard of cedar balls being scattered through a wardrobe. Some wardrobes are constructed of cedar. Perhaps they are in the know.

 Being lazy with shoe tree use, could have some upside. I'm no entomologist but I have decided it is a valid excuse to purchase more shoes and trees.....and if that is weak logic then not for my feet but for the Smedley pullover/jumper that has had the shotgun treatment. Moths 1 Brendon 0.

Anyone else heard this solution ? Or anyone willing to do a DIY mythbusters and release a jar of moths in their wardrobe with a bunch of shoe trees and report the results to the learned Styleforum community

Interesting, I have yet to lose any clothing to moths - touch wood...cedar wood that is - or even see them in a wardrobe, is this specific climates or is the discussion here a heavily cautionary tale rather than any indication of likelihood?

Out of all of those, dry cleaning before long term storage and plenty of cedar are the most appealing to me. I don't like the smell of moth balls.

You won't have issues with any clothing that is worn regularly. It's only been an issue for me on clothing that has sat in the same spot (particularly in a dark area like a drawer) for 3 months or more.

So more something to think about when putting winter clothing or summer away for the year.

Canberra is prone to moths they destroyed a 1950's box cut suit in grey worsted wool. frown.gif

However learnt lesson now after washing pack away jumpers in zip lock bags. Dry clean suits, SC winter trousers and place in suit bags.

Well, with apologies to Henry Carter, Suitsupply has now taken the title for absolutely outrageously good/over the top packaging... I thought someone had sent me a headstone.

And shipped inside a week too (ordered Friday).
