md2010, if I may add a point, regarding that navy pinstripe suit, in my experience, we tend to tailor some point here or there but forget about overall harmony. Like shortening pants but then the original taper means a large leg opening. So to my eye, that suit, while a navy pinstripe which sort of says sharp slick cool banker, seems to be cut in a fairly rounded, soft relaxed way. In contrast to your grey suit which looks quite padded, with sharper lines, and stiffer. The point I'm making is everything in proportion and they each have their own style. If you take in the waist of the navy pinstripe, notice that the sleeves (besides the pitch issue) seem rather generous and relaxed so having a tight sharp waist wouldn't match. I'm not saying don't take it in, if you feel it's too big, but not too much, I think it's just meant to be a bit of a relaxed fit, or probably more suited (so to speak) to a pudgy middle aged banker rather than a young lean whippersnapper like you smile.gif

Also +1 to what Cox said. I'm all for fit and cut and proportion but I do think even though you're very lean, that grey suit is pushing the limits on waist suppression. When I started out I was so obsessed with having everything as trim as possible and was so committed to it even when I ended up pushing past the point of really being comfortable ever. Now I've added a bit of break to my trousers, loosened up the waist a little here and there, gone a bit longer in the jackets, and I feel so much better. Anyway, just some thoughts. Haven't had my coffee yet.

I know nothing else about this. Speculate on shirt prices, cutaway collars and button vs double cuffs as you please.

The very first link suggest that the Balnaring Holdings Pty Ltd went belly up mid this year.
My extensive investigations = 30 secs on google - suggest that they were warned they would be deregistered mid year by ASIC - that's usually due to inactivity or failure to supply reports, not necessarily very bad behaviour, but that that was averted and now they are still an entity - must be to get action in court. My guess is its a holding (duh!) company for other companies - possibly an SMSF and the dispute is over property - rent/contracts or similar not goods supply. All conjecture based on a quick scan.

Anyway blah - why don't you sneak along to court and sit in for 20 mins to see what its about.

Has anyone in Perth ever used Vince Pertrucci of Fremantle Tailors to make a suit? If yes what's your opinion of him? Am considering getting a suit tailored by him.

I haven't as yet, I have however spent considerable time at Little Creatures at Freo. Chilli mussels, wood fired pizza and amazing beer off the tap. Now where's my spruiking fee!

Was thinking of getting a midnight blue barathea double breasted suit and a odd grey mohair or fresco jacket. He charges 1000 for a fully canvassed jacket and 500 for pants if you're doing CMT, so I was just curious. Can't afford Holland and Sherry on a student income :(

I cant help wondering why if you are on a student income you are thinking about "a midnight blue barathea double breasted suit and a odd grey mohair or fresco jacket."

Hey guys, I spoke at Parliament House Victoria this morning as part of 'Victoria Against Violence'.

For those who are interested, read the transcript of my speech online.

Great speech, so sorry to hear about your sister.

I simply cannot comprehend how a real man can commit any form of violent act against his partner (or children). I am however glad that White Ribbon Day and domestic violence overall are finally get some better media coverage.
