Sounds a bit like when my old man visits.

No.

 

I like the guy's style and hence the similar name. I think he has a great sense of style. I came across his content on Tumblr. I'd love to order my suits where he does. Does anyone know who he uses?

 

I heard JH Cutler. But I might have heard wrong.

Thanks to the recommendations to Oscar Hunt, the experience has been pleasant thus far.

 

I'll post some pics once I've gotten my suit.

 

Also, I have a number of brand new C&J shoes for sale here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/511806/crockett-jones-brand-new-various-styles-uk-9-5-10 (Aussie members will obviously get better pricing in A$)

Thanks for this Coxsackie. I had a look on the JH Cutler website. These guys look like proper tailors. I knew Guido knew his stuff and would only go for the best. Shame they are in Sydney.

I have come across some info on Oscar Hunt. Can you tell us more about your experience? What did you get? What was the service like?

I heard that PG was working for PJT now, can't remember who told me that though. Maybe one of the blokes that know him like @thebrownman or @nabilmust might be able to confirm or deny or he might even make an appearance. Either way they have have made his stuff for quite a long time and him and Patrick are pretty good mates I believe.

Yeah well, as I said, I might have heard wrong.

I really need a holiday.

You know when you reach that point where you react to little things at work apoplectically...

lol. Genetics don't help.

Was talking to a paesano about how we have the tendency to erupt in rage one minute and then pretend nothing happened the next.

Has always amazed me how calm and measured Guido Wongolini is.

My rather negative opinion. Take it or leave it. Probably insignificant.... (Click to show)

Maybe I am losing touch, but I don't see many good lines: just lots and lots of wrinkles, lots of collar gaps, and very poor trouser fits. Quite a few of the photos make me cringe and the photography hurts my eyes (over exposed, contrast way too high, poor representation of fabric textures and colour). The tailoring does not appear comfortable to me. They are nice guys personality wise, but I have to say I only know (or knew) a significantly smaller proportion, given all the new staff.

 

Please please please dial it the fuck back and take us to simpler times. Please. I beg u....

 
End rant. Back to regular programming...

 

The blokes to watch for are Lyo and Nick. Look at their ensembles - they're slightly more relaxed, less collar gaps, trousers that aren't painted on them. I've known Nick since before he started at PJ, and I've been noticing the subtle changes in proportions and fit. Same with Lyo. Notice that their coats are slightly longer, too.

That was a long, long time ago. But you're not entirely wrong. Now it's all PJT.

See above.

Additionally (Click to show)

Additionally, what makes GW's suits work for him is that he looks comfortable in his clothes. And that comes from knowing what makes clothes comfortable. It's often about balance, proportion, drape, and knowing that we'll be spending lots of time moving about, doing stuff, in our clothes. It's not just about that fleeting moment you see your reflection in the mirror to decide if a suit fits you.

 

Not very often do you meet a fitter and/ or a tailor who can do this for you without significant input from the wearer (i.e. you).

 

It is a myth that the more expensive the suit, the better fitting it will be. The converse is an equal myth.

 

The suit that fits you best is the most valuable one for you. It could be OTR, it could be MTM, it could be bespoke, it could be machine made, handmade, made in Singapore, Australia, Korea, or Naples. Start with the cheaper options to find out your sweet spot.

 

For many, MTM is all that you need (and bespoke is a marginal improvement that doesn't warrant the difference in price). I'd say start there: be clear with your fitter about what you want in your suit and what you want out of it. Then see how you go.

You're quite right -- but he doesn't work for them. Being good mates, I think GW and Pat just discuss ideas about things that have to do with the brand, in their own time.

Come on friend, I gave you a straight answer to your question. Why not be straight with me?

Thank you for the additional information. It is very helpful to me in understanding suits. I wonder why he switched. Maybe they were friends before the suit business? I have had a look at his old photos and I think I like his earlier looks better. The ones with the lapel pins and the bangles.
