What sort of suit are you after? Solid charcoal for work? Subtle/flashy pinstripes? 3-piece P.O.W check? Unstructured cotton/elastane? Black linen?

If you give me some more info I can go and do some scouting for you.

Hi guys, been lurking here a while , and figured Aussies are far more trustworthy to offer up advice on whats suitable (oh dear) for the sartorial environment in Australia. i am located in Newcastle and deal with mainly medicos, and am looking to update wardrobe up from the studio italia and Rundles suits I currently sport.

6'2" 89kg, and a couple of options I have found are these.

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-CANALI-Suit-...ht_3051wt_1139

http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/...ln--42L/Detail

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Polo-Ralph-L...ht_1341wt_1139

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-OXXFORD-1220...#ht_2269wt_905

I only want 2 - already have a dark pinstripe charcoal, a medium charcoal by cambridge and co, and a black SI which is already a little worse for wear - so I figured navy blue would be a good start and something lighter, particularly for summer. The navy will probably make double duty as a blazer down the track with some contrasting buttons when the pants wear.

Dont know whether it makes a difference, but i wear ties generally, though not over summer - side effect of being on the road and getting in and out of a car ;(.

Any advice or comments greatly appreciated

By the way did you find out the opening hours for that cobbler in Fyshwick tried ringing again but no answer.

Oh yes I did sorry, says 9-5.30 on the door but he said he is there until 5 usually, it is just him though so maybe if he is busy with a client it may have rung out. Don't think they are open on the weekends.

In terms of quality, the Oxxford suit would be in front. Caruso would be slightly better than Canali, with the Polo Bradford last (but still good value for that price).

As to what fits you the best, that's anyone's guess.

They also seem to have different pants (double pleated vs flat fronts) which is a key consideration.

If you look on the tag it will have a code along the lines of V3KAA03 and V21236 for model and block number. Those are from my 3-piece city suit which is quite a classic cut (strong shoulders, minimal waist suppression) What does the code on your new casual cotton suit say? That is a very slim cut. Ask Alessandro next time you see him to explain the differences in the different blocks and how to spot them on the tags. You are correct though...some Versaces are very slim...almost sculpted (I think some are a drop 8).
Here's the tag off the one I actually bought a couple of weeks ago - I'd be interested to see if you know what it means. I believe its the middle style (block?) because my cyclist thighs almost burst the thinnest style pants

thx PG for your input - I'll have to take the chance on a fit - the best quality local suit I can find is a Rembrandt -so local trying on is out - my 19" shoulder suits fit dead on for width - nd i'm yet to try a 42l that doesnt seem to fit - well to my and the salespersons eye anyway ;D

So, if thats the quality equation - how about the style one?

Gassyndrome - yep - I havent been able to make a decision on what I prefer or why - other than not considering a suit I found with 4 pleats! (excess is only obvious when you see it)

I don't know enough yet to decode it enough The 'V2' prefix means a 2-piece (whereas my V3 denotes a 3-piece). I'm not sure which part denotes the city/trend/other model.

It's interesting that you say there isn't much room in the trouser. I have cyclist thighs but found the trouser cut in my Versace quite generous and it needed no alteration of the inseam or seat at all. I guess could also be related to the mode..

So guys...what kind of knots do you tie in your ties? Four-in-Hand Half-windsor Windsor Apologies if this has been covered!
post #5667 of 57841
^ replace windsor with double four in hand and you've got every knot you'll ever need.
post #5668 of 57841
Thanks! Going back to work tomorrow for the first time in 2 years...was just practicing my knots.

I'm 6'3" and 90+ kgs.
I have 3 Canali suits of that model number (but in the regular, not the long). I've also tried on loads of the same model. I have a regular sized torso and long legs (and prefer a shorter jacket anyway). They are all a classically styled suit. Medium to softer shoulders, high armholes, generous sleeves with a clean chest and a moderate amount of waist suppression. I prefer the models with softer shoulders, some models have stronger shoulders.

The flat-fronted trousers are quite slim, thankfully they come with about an inch of extra material in the inseam (and about two inches in the waist) so there is plenty of room for alterations. The single-pleat trousers are as expected..roomier.

I've tried on a few Caruso suits at Harrolds but never looked at the model tag. They were like my Canali drop 7 suits but with very soft, natural shoulders. They look great.

I've bought the Polo Bradford trouser in a 36" waist. They are flat fronted but I didn't need any alterations. I've tried on the jacket. A nice classic cut but the shoulders use cheaper materials in the padding (maybe just a single pre-formed pad?) so it doesn't fit as nicely as my more expensive suits...but its still a good cheap suit.

I have no idea about the Oxford 1220 line.
