    Hi guys need some help to source the right black bow tie. Groomsmen are wearing a linen-wool mix light beige jacket, black linen trousers, white shirts. Looking a black bow ties but the typical satin (and a lot of grosgrain) seem too shiny for the outfit. Any suggestions on what/where to look?

    Somewhat shocked to find an actual high-ish rise (sitting between hip crests and umbilicus) and relaxed fit trousers from suitsupply. Even has single reverse pleat and side adjusters. And price is verrrryyy reasonable at $250...

    After stewing over white pants for a long time decided to finally wear an outfit to work. Also first week trying out this second hand Polo corduroy jacket. Thought both would be too much for work which is a “business casual” navy chinos and shirt type place - but just felt so comfortable in the...

    Re: my search for non low rise dress trouser options Accessible RTW options in the 150-350 price range in the end were mostly online (for Brisbane at least) Just a little short of mid rise: Anthony Squires and Suit Supply: For Mid to higher rise: Natalino, Spier & Mackay, Pini Parma, Berwich

    Sorry to be clear, I do not want low rise. Anything that might be considered medium or a bit higher rise would be ideal. I do have some Cavour pants which are great construction/material but found them more low-mid rise and way too slim for my ratio of hips to thick legs.

    Hi all hunting for some trousers that are a non low rise cut. MJB are all way too slim and low rise. Anyone have suggestions for options in Brisbane? Ideally side tabs too. I’m eyeing off spier mackay options but gotta convince the groom (I’m the best man) that we might not have any brick &...

    Hey guys I’m just wondering how low rise are the non-high rise trousers? I feel the high rise are just marginally too high but I also don’t want pants sitting on the hip bones. I’ve trawled through the thread images but can’t get a good grasp of this. Thanks for the help

    Ah yeah sorry I’m in a small “city” in Queensland, Australia. Not much options for alterations here. Certainly not menswear. Letting out the legs of the pants was pushing boundaries of experience/skill. And already cost my me half the the price of the pants in the end. Waist would be even...

    my actual waist measurement is 30inch and I will fit pants that have a TTS 30inch waist. So I bought the EU 46 initially which had the right size waist but way too tight everywhere else. And then the EU48 (32 inch) had the issues as seen/described above. Still too tight - but the waist is truly...

    Yep I think they’re just not for me if I have to buy 3-4inch waist larger than my true size. Tough lesson after I bought 4 and had them altered a couple of times 😅. Lovely chinos in terms of material and construction if they work for you.

    I forgot I did have a photo of the mod 2 pants. I had initially ordered my waist size (30) and found them way too tight. Went to a size 32 and let the thighs, knees and below knees out ~3cm each side. And they ended up still too tight. I’m 182cm tall, 75kg

    spent awhile looking for merino socks. Found Corgi to be good made in England mid thickness merino socks. Definitely thicker than dress socks. But not a hiking thick sock. Really seem like they’ll last. I do wash them all in a big bunch on wool cycle and they’re holding up well. Found a...

    Ah probably not relevant as I’m in a smaller city in Australia. Cost me half of the price of the chinos to get them altered. I bought the chinos half price though. I’m sure most competent places can let the leg out no worries. It’s just a much bigger job than a hem thus the cost.

    My Mod 2 chinos were definitely thigh and calf hugging. I’m fairly sure the suit pants are cut in the Mod 2. I have a narrow waist and large calves and moderate butt/thighs. They fortunately had a lot of spare material to let them out a couple of cm but I think I didn’t let them out enough...
