    I agree with this. The only thing I would question would be the sleeves but as Rob has pointed out, it's hard to tell the reason for this. Patrick would already have CEP's measurements on file and the sleeve length shouldn't have changed

    The waist actually looks more relaxed than this to my eyes (and I think the photo below is a great fit - also check out the shoulders):

    1. Jacket Sleeves are a tad tight (see my comment above);

    2. Charles cuts his right shirt sleeve a tad larger to accommodate my watch (which I was not wearing)

    3. Coxaca, re-waist tightness: with the changes Pat made, it's comfortable enough even after a full meal. Trust me; I'm a consultant.

    4. I do not have nice ankles and will stick to socks, thanks. But strumpy brogues rock!

    5. True genius is better than false genius.

    Cheers

    Good advice. The pricing vs quality of Aussie shirts is a scandal.

    Hear hear. Decent shirts are hard to come by in most generic brick and mortar stores.

    Cottonwork make some beautiful stuff, but they take forever to do it and make a lot of errors IME.

    I hope a pay rise is on the cards at the end of this FY. Big tax return + pay rise = MTM every thing including underwear.

    Guys is there anyone looking for extra large business shirts? I found a set of 5 shirts today in size 20. Four Tyrwhitt and BB button down. Basic solid colours (white, blue, pink, mauve).Nothing flash but they are in EC.

    I also found a Chester Barrie suit in size 43R if anyone's keen.

    Photos are here. PM me if interested.

    Bunny, most of my chinos are from Land's End, although I did pick some up from Herringbone at deep discount during a warehouse sale. Herringbone ones are much thinner, Land's End ones more substantial, but with slightly more generous fit. Tailored ones from LE are still fairly slim, but with a wider leg opening at the bottom compared to Herringbone.

    I haven't tried Bill's Khakis, but some people do swear by them.

    Another place to get chinos or cotton trousers is Charles Tyrwhitt - their chinos and cotton trousers are well made and good value when they have one of their bigger sales.

    Mr Bunnyman I have a pair from Lands' End -- I'm wearing them right now actually -- and I would recommend them (they are the Men's Regular Plain Front Tailored Fit Legacy Chino Pants, btw). The quality is ok, nothing to write home about, as good or better as you could expect for cheap (I paid about $35). The cut however is excellent: classic, with a nice medium rise and a fuller leg than you get with Epaulet or similar. The cut is, to paraphrase Mr Exerent, "grown-ass man". They are not hipster, nor are they hipsters, ha ha. I plan to buy a couple more pairs.

    I would be highly concerned if you thought otherwise.

    I can picture people wearing those shirts, but can my face muscles stand up to that much cringing? Can I pledge money for these *not* to happen?

    Wtf is up with those shirts?

    Speaking of which, has anyone had experience with the Charles Tyrwitt OCBDs?

    Considering ordering some from Brookes Brothers - does anyone have a US mail box? Will pay for use.
