WP, great to hear from you and I hope that you're enjoying yourself in Jakarta. 

 

I was lugging a backpack the last time I was there a couple of decades back, so I don't have any sartorial advice. However, with regard to getting some suits made up, it may be better for you to jump across the Java Sea up to Singapore and see if you can book in with Iris Tailor or someone like that. 

 

I know that @nabilmust has some experience with Iris, so he might be able to say more. 

 

There's also a SE Asian version of Styleforum called "The Kerbau" (which is Malaysian for water buffalo - don't ask me why it's called that!). I think that most of the members are based in Malaysia, Singapore or Australia but you could always sign up and see whether there's anyone there who can advise on sartorial stuff in Jakarta/Indonesia.

P.S. While you're there, try to get up to the hill country so as to see Bogor and Bandung and also get down to the south coast to see Yogyakarta, plus Prambenan, Borobudur and surrounding areas. 

 

P.P.S. Eat lots of food from streetside warungs. The murtabak is (or was) amazing.

WP - re Jakarta, you might PM forum member EliodA, introduce yourself, and ask his advice. He is based in Jakarta and is always well turned out.

In the spirit of sharing - was in Chicago recently and was blown away by the beautiful quality and fabrics of this tailor - http://www.fredericklynn.com/  Would certainly receommend to anyone visiting the Windy City.  I was hoping to be able to go back and have him make my suits but other things have gotten in the way and looks like I wont be back until next year now.

Look forward to sharing your experiences and knowledge here SF AU

Thanks for that. I'm in Chicago every 3-6 months, so will check that out next time.

MJB AW collection looks alright, dont think I saw any ridiculous pieces for a change.

Wouldn't pay full price but the free suit in their looks unique.

The grey DB in VB wool is very SuSu ish, less the SuSu price.

I'm after a trench coat, and don't mind the look of the two that they show in the lookbook, but cannot for the life of me work out what the difference between the Pergaud and the Vandore is!

I'm looking to buy Mrs GF some nice (translation well made and stylish shoes). Any suggestions for somewhere in Sydney? She's not keen on online shoe shopping.

This whole 'work' thing is beginning to become more than a little irritating.

Ernesto - perfecto - Italian, Catholics, Music, booze, food.

Po' Boy Quarter joins forces with Ding Dong Lounge to present the most colourful Food & Music event of the season on Tuesday, 9 Feb at Piazza Italia, Argyle Street in Carlton.

Some may recall last year’s event, which was held near Melbourne General Cemetery in Lygon Street. Organisers were expecting to cater to around 500 people and were overwhelmed by public response to the event, which drew around 7000 punters, who came along mostly through word of mouth.

This year's event will be ticketed and held at a brand new venue with even more to taste, hear and see. Only 1500 tickets are available to this year’s Fat Tuesday family-friendly New Orleans style event at $22+BF or $28 on the door, with kids under 15 free entry if accompanied by an adult. Buy tickets here: https://fattuesfestmelb.eventbrite.com.au/

The event will be hosted by RocKwiz Supremo Brian Nankervis and includes fantastic local DJ’s Mohair Slim (PBS) and Bruce Milne (RRR). Multiple bar areas and a smorgasbord of Southern food stalls will be available to attendees.

Entertainments including a funky second line brass band parade, a fortune teller’s booth and a costume competition that will culminate with the crowning of Melbourne’s very first King and Queen of Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras, which is French for “Fat Tuesday,” celebrates the last day of the “Carnival” season in New Orleans – an audacious and bodacious orgy of merrymaking, parades, feasting, and dancing.

Mardi Gras is traditionally the last chance for Catholics to engage in debauchery of any type before Lent in the lead up to Easter, but it has been adopted by the entire city’s population as a shared joyous cultural event. Now it's Melbourne's chance to do the same.

I appeared in the Supremo for the first time today.

Lots of Rollies. Unfortunately they were all attached to badly dressed middle aged men.

Anybody watchig War & Peace. The Russian officers costuming is stunning.The tailoring hours that would have been required to produce the garments, does help if you have a big budget.
