Anyone have any opinions on Melbourne Watch Company?

I'm putting my money down on a Tissot Visodate this weekend. Still considering the Flinders by MWC.

Creative genius with a unique and individual musical talent.

Stunned, words fail. Soo sad.

MWC started off with the owner importing the movements and other parts and putting them together at home. They were bits of knock-offs. There was a Panerai lookalike, an Archimede lookalike, etc. Fairly cheap but well put together. I bought a manual wind pilot model with an onion crown in May 2013 which is still going strong (picture below). I have worn it everywhere, including rough. In fact I am wearing it now as I type this from Coober Pedy. Shortly after that he went more sophisticated and started a new line which I think is manufactured somewhere OS - including the Flinders model. The general web feedback is good. I think they are now much better quality than the early one I bought. I think I would still go the Visodate, or preferably the Alpinist as recently modelled by Cox.

Major Tom off into the great beyond. And we never found out what shirts he wears... Ashes to ashes, dust to Stardust. RIP.

Selling some shoes on eBay. Shoes may not be SF approved.

All are US 10D.

 

Thanks!

Having seen Luxire mentioned a few pages back - does anyone want to provide some feedback on the process, etc (whilst I start trawling through the main thread)?

 

I'm in need on some new business shirts and was thinking they would be a great option to 'replicate' (based on me providing measurements) some Ascot Chang shirts I currently have which fit like a dream. I presume it's still recommended to place a trial order to get any adjustments to the fit sorted?

 

Also, how are the real-world turnaround times on garments?

 

Cheers

@smeggett, another option is Proper Cloth - I have had a good experience with them. But you'll have less control over some aspects of the shirt (collar type etc)

Hi guys, I'm looking a getting a few new suits. Are there any good stores in Sydney with staff that'll give good advice on the fit rather than just trying to rush you through the sale?

 

Budget is around $1000 for two and maybe a third if it goes well.

I think @LonerMatt can give you some tips on how to go about sending your good shirts over to be copied.

Thanks @sebastian mcfox I'll check them out as I'm not looking for anything too fancy. Plain white and light blue cotton shirts, mid spread collar, barrel cuff...
