I get more and more disappointed at the offerings Australia has for menswear.
My preference is for the first button to be at my waist or very close. I don't know what the ideal would be.
On another note, American Tailors are getting some new Carminas in very shortly :)
Also, when I was at Henry Buck's in Melbourne on Boxing Day, I overheard one of the staff mentioning that their big sale was on Feb 3 and that this one was just a small one.
