Oscar Hunt would be a good place to start for many people, Gino, including possibly you. There's an OH thread here somewhere. Check it out if you haven't already done so.

Sure. I'll be straight with you: to be honest, I thought you were a troll or a sock puppet. Apologies for that.

 

Guido indeed seems to get all his bespoke stuff from PJT these days.

 

Wraith's advice is also good.

 

And don't forget that SuitSupply are launching a B&M store soon in Sydney. In the meantime, you can buy their stuff online. Above a certain price point they will ship FOC, and returns are also FOC, meaning that you can try out a few different blocks to see which (if any) work for you.

My external HD died this morning I don't even want to think what was on it. I use two but the second has limited capacity. And I am stuck home waiting for tradie to show up.

And the annual end of year how much damage can I do to my liver drinking season is upon us, just as good as a holiday.

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.

 

That's not all Cutler. There's a whole range of tailors and brands.

 

Tastes change, and with that, your preferred tailor, I suppose.

Just came back from tassy trip for the first time. That place is bloody gorgeous. Cape Tourville lookout and being surrounded by little wallabies while having lunch at mt fields national park were definitely highlights.

On the food front, Captains Catch in St Helens served the best oysters I've ever had and a good deal at $17 a dz, Get Shucked on Bruny Island also great and at $9 a dz if you take home and do your own shucking absolute bargain.

Had the pleasure of trying the goods sold at Wursthaus in Hobart and Peter the owner is nothing short of a top bloke. Cape Grim porterhouse at $32 a kg is not bad either. Pork pie and chicken liver pate delicious.

Daci and Daci bakery is the best brunch place in town as good as any Melbourne places with out the hipster tax. $16 a plate of good breakfast that would cost $20+ anywhere in Melbourne ignoring how big the servings are there.

Coxie, where have you heard this? I've seen rumours floating around this thread for a little while but nothing seems to be happening?

 

On suitsupply, I had two unsuccessful orders with the Napoli suit (only one that really fits me in shoudlers). Their long fitting fitted me just how I like everywhere except the sleeves which were a good two inches too long (stupid short jacket styling). The sleeves are of course fitted with working buttons so to get them fixed I would have had to ask a tailor to take from top of sleeve and re-attach.

 

I didn't do this as various threads on this forum suggested I shouldn't, but I'm having second thoughts as Suitsupply is such good value. Knowledgeable types (JM/Nabil/notJimmyHoffa), have you seen this done well ever? The alterations guy I go to reckons he can do it, but reshaping the armhole and reattaching seems like something that could go very wrong.

I have heard of these guys and glad they are in Melbourne. I am doing some research on them before popping in.

So PJT does bespoke as well? I have not heard of SuitSupply, but I will look into it. Thanks for the advice.

I will look closer into this. If I want my suits to look exactly like his I need to get them made at the same place I think.

When I first migrated to Oz I took my wife to Tassy. Too cold. Wouldn't go again. It also helps that I am allergic to crabs.

A few more food/beverage items you might have missed:

 

1. Bruny Island Cheese (available at Salamanca market or from Wursthaus);

2. Tree ripened apples (available at Salamanca market);

3. Tasmanian whiskey (bloody expensive though);

4. Pick your own strawberries from organic farm;

5. Free range eggs;

6. Milk, cheese and chocolate made from local milk farm- Wicked in Richmond.

 

Re: suiting. It is a slippery slope down the curve of diminishing marginal returns. I am quickly reaching a point where I am happy to stay put where I am without any further progress.

No, they don't do bespoke.

Actually, if you want your suits to look exactly like his, you need to be built exactly like him. That's your starting point.

Your alterations guy is on the right path - depending on how much of the sleeve that needs to be taken in, it could affect the armhole and the shape of the armhole. 

 

You're in Sydney, right? There is a guy who can do this quite well, but the price tag isn't pretty. Especially when it comes to work on the shoulders. It all becomes your own cost-benefit analysis. I can't quote a price because it's subjective to the amount of work, and the intricacy of it.

I heard from an "industry insider" yesterday that SuSu will be developing some kind of rooftop space in a Westfield (presumably - but not necessarily - Centrepoint).

 

Arms can be shortened at the shoulder if the fabric has no pattern, or a very fine pattern. For windowpane, fuggedaboudit.

 

Yes, when I mentioned "bespoke" and "PJT" in the same sentence, I was wrong. I should have written "MTM". Or if I was feeling pretentious, "su misura".

Man, I really feel sorry for you, nothing seems to ever go your way.

Milk, yogurt, farm made ice creams i overloaded on that stuff there even though I'm lactose intolerant. did have a look at the whiskey place in the same shop as BISH. Drive through huon valley but doesn't look like the apples and pears are in season. Same deal with berries. I pigged out in huonvilles's Cats Tongue Chocolatier on the way back from Masaakis for sushi - one of the best sushis ive had in australia actually and crazy cheap at $30 a head.

At least you're not a Serb/Croat/Maco etc. etc.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

If I get slightly inconvenienced you can literally see my blood boiling up through my thick neck like a rage-measuring-thermometer. Then when a chunky artery begins to pulsate in my forehead I’ll punch some women, punch my mates, punch my mother and punch the nearest door or wall. Not my Dad though, he is an even bigger and scarier nuclear psychopath than me. We had to leave Slavland because he was about to be charged by the UN with a list of war crimes longer than my girlfriend’s deli-curtain hair extensions. I work in some dodgy construction related job doing ‘project management’ which pretty much means I get all of my family and friends to go into 'developments’. We bribe local councillors with free construction work on their houses and businesses in return for them giving us development permits and rezoning land we bought years ago as market gardens. At a ‘meeting’ with one of the councillors, in my Range Rover, he asked if I was from Montenegro and I punched him because I’m fucking Croatian not African. Do I look like Jayden Smith fuckhead?
