    I have a Barbor Commander in Medium which is still too small. Bought it last year tried it on a bunch of times but it's just too small across the shoulders.

    Would trade for Large or sell to anyone for reasonable price paid AU$950 which makes me slightly sick in hindsight.

    Could be I've just stretched them a little. I actually really like having a proper length blade, but yes could probably be shortened just a bit.

    Thanks TBM. It's the "Fedora" model. Tried on the Stylemaster as well but this one suited me a bit better. The lack of a binding on the rim keeps it a bit more casual IMO.

    Damn that looks sweet Nabil.

    I have got a heap back from tailors lately, also some new uniqlo polos (size up if you purchase, mine are skin tight), shoe trees, my third luxire shirt (fit almost down, just a little excess fabric on back).
    Planning to get a few pairs of odd pants ordered from Luxire, thinking light grey (flannel looking, but actually cotton), stone in cotton, and linen tan. Any other suggestions? I only have navy at the moment, (at least ones that I like the fit of).

    Also got photos of that Flannel Bay sports coat i picked up a while ago, fabric is amazing.

    Tried to get a fit pic but lighting is terrible/my phone camera is terrible. wool/silk/linen

    ^ there is a bit of fabric that gathers near the collarbone; right sleeve needs to be lengthened by 1/8"; there is a little gather of fabric near the right shoulderblade, a little at the back collar; right sleevehead needs to be rotated forward by 1/2"; waist suppression needs to be let out 1/2" on either side. show buttons need to be lowered and placed nearer to each other.

    minimal stuff, but it grinds my gears. To Iris' credit, this is the first time she;s has done a shawl collar DB. And we had just one basted fitting -- mainly to decide buttoning point and lapel shape/width.

    Got some black trousers from them the other day, nothing exciting, my usual deal, daks adjusters, 2" cuff, super high waisted. Should be getting my green cord jacket any day now though.

    Thanks heaps for sending the scarf Jason!

    It will come up a treat.

    The show buttons look like ersatz nipples.

    Seems to be a lot of kops going on behind the scenes.
    Not recent purchases but arrivals of old orders.
    Just got a 7fold navy/pink flowers grossa yesterday from a SF special order made through capelli a few months ago.
    Also last weekend had 2nd fitting of a navy w rust windowpane sc using harrisons moonbeam "urban tweed" and some nice hrey woolen flannel pants to go with them.

    Yes, lots of sly purchases revealed.

    Bit like people hiding new cops from their significant other!
