    Thanks for the feedback !

    Yes the fit measurements will be added shortly as well as how they are taken - ran out of time:)
    Fit pictures will come too when we get the pants so we can maximise the use of model/photographer.

    Yes, I ordered some shoes last night on the sale :)

    No word on shipping yet, but my last order with Herring arrived in less than 3 days.

    No worries and good luck. Good to see some other Aussies having a go and the second Australian Affiliate coming on board.

    If you do ever need any ties to use for photo's etc then I'd be happy to help out, but will preface it by saying I am doing a few shirts myself for next season also just so you are aware. Offer is always there though.

    Has anyone ever considered the idea of an Aus Members SF wiki? I've always thought it'd be a good idea. It would be a great place to start for new arrivals and would avoid some of the questions that always get asked (not that anyone is ever reticent to help in this thread) and a handy quick reference guide for old hands. Probably organised by city for the most part.

    So under Melbourne, you would have some sections like

    -Recommended tailors & approximate prices.
    -Recommended menswear retailers, eg Azzaro, Beggar Man Thief etc
    -Recommended dry cleaners
    -MTM suitmakers in each city eg P Johnson, Deerstyle
    -Barbers...

    Perhaps other general Aus-wide sections sections on online ordering, canvassing the usual suspects like Herring/Pediwear/AFPOS/endless/US department stores etc but also our own members' online operations, Aus members experiences with various online MTM outfitters.

    The only thing we'd have to watch out for is keeping it free of viral marketing. My other concern is that much of the content might be too subjective for a wiki. On the other hand, it could be kept to being directory only, saving opinions for the thread.

    This is a great idea. I'd definitely be interested in getting involved (I do some freelance writing on the side and I have some photography skillz too).

    Second this. I'd like to think I have some writing/photography skills that could contribute to such a project.

    I like the look of this, a really great idea. I would love to see some dress/ cutaway polos too, I got a bit obsessed with them after seeing Finamore in Pitti.....

    I might be late to the party, but congrats

    Friends of yours or friends of ours?

    Love the entrepreneurship of people like Jason and Romp. Great to see. Also think the wiki is a great idea.

    I would like to be involved, amazing idea. I have photography skills and other #menswear ninja skills.

    It might work well as an unique blog. A sartorial guide to Australia

    Thanks - i like how you think! I also liked the Finamore range of long sleeve polos. Just in the process of tracking down a quality cotton pique and see how it comes up on our cut and im thinking probably in a popover/halfbuttoned style.

    Yeah, but Finamore are just insanely priced....although beautiful.

    I picked up some from Boggi Milano (The best mid -range menswear store I have ever been to) and suit supply (which were not great quality but look sick).
