    Skinny and low rise seems to be the norm for local shops. No idea what shipping to Aus is like, but what about one of the forum sponsors? e.g. https://www.spierandmackay.com/collection/casual-trousers-chinos-khakis https://www.shopthefinest.com/collections/pants

    The big one would be Ciccio. Don't know about decently priced, or if he's even taking on new clients at the moment. There's a write up on four others here: https://www.permanentstyle.com/2016/10/japanese-tailors-anglofilo-sartoria-domenica-vick-tailor-and-pecora-ginza.html I'd also look into...

    Hey folks, I'd been looking for a passport holder that: a) has a slot to hold a boarding pass, and b) is slim enough to fit in the breast pocket of a sport coat. Couldn't find anything I liked, so had to go custom. Contacted Rocky from Mill Handmade (based in Brisbane), who'd made me some...

    Sadly not anymore. I think Patrick Johnson used to stock, them but switched some years ago. I would just order direct from their website. If you subscribe to their newsletter you'll find out about their sales as well when they do have them.

    No, I didn't meet with Dalcuore. Would like to see photos of the first round of fittings when they return, if any SF members did go. I've heard they do a good job, however as Sliq mentioned, would rather visit them in Italy for the full experience and more fittings. Actually had a trip to...

    Sartoria Dalcuore did their first trunk show in Sydney and Melbourne towards the end of last year. Not sure when the next visit was planned, but imagine it's been delayed. Also Chiaia Napoli does trunk shows at TFC. Can't think of any Savile Row tailors that have come down under. Not a big...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    I preferred the darker of the two as well, seems to be the general consensus. Who's making the coat? Even in person, some of the darker stuff seems to almost absorb light. Total lack of sheen, but I think that's partly what draws me to it. Give me texture, and prevent me from choosing flashy...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    @ZRH1 I was about to pull the trigger on that one! It stands out in a book with lots of great choices. Decided to go with the plainer navy though in the end. As it will be my first bespoke winter sport coat, I'll probably wear it twice a week this coming winter, so wanted maximum versatility...

    Does anyone have experience with Standeven Glenesk? Specifically wondering about the durability, how hard wearing or delicate it is. 95% wool 5% cashmere ~11oz

    The Great Navy Blazer Conundrum

    Planning 2x navy blazers: a) HFW mockleno 244 (half lined, mid-brown horn buttons) b) navy DB, (half lined, gold buttons) Live in a hot climate where a 9/10oz fresco is a year-round cloth. Are there any other forum favourite cloths I can try for the double breasted jacket?

    Official Umbrella aficionados thread

    How do you aficionados bring umbrellas back home? Do you pick up a Maglia and put it in diagonally in your suitcase? Or get it shipped back home while you travel? Asking as I'm heading to Naples later this year, and deciding between taking my usual (smaller) suitcase, or a full size one just...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    On the subject of jacketings, if I go with navy mockleno for a single breasted sc, what's the "go-to" for a DB blazer? Was thinking of trying H&S Crispaire or some other hopsack. Any recommendations?

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Well that would have sold me as well. The dark MOP will look good. I'll probably stick with horn for this one, and get something more exciting for a DB blazer later down the line.

    Out of curiosity, what tipped you over the edge? I'm about to order a jacket from the same Minnis ML. If I get one in a brown one later on, I will try it in the Finmeresco ML. Question now is what buttons to use...

    How do I take care of my first pair of good shoes

    First of all, if you wear them 5 days a week, they won't last as long as they should. You should at have at least two pairs so you can alternate them. This gives the shoes time to rest and moisture to evaporate in between wears. Also you should get a pair of wooden shoe trees for them (eg from...

    ABC ran a story about the town of Clunes in Victoria. There's a bespoke shoemaker there, Duncan McHarg, who does everything by hand (not even a sewing machine for the stitching). Link to the segment for anyone interested: His Facebook page...
