    Don't have one but a few friends do.

    They're very nice and well made, but you need to keep in mind that they're a proper chore coat designed for doing work, so the fit can be hit and miss.

    Could not have said it better myself. Another case of politicians pandering to big businesses. And they wonder why voters have lost interest in the process and treats politicians with contempt.

    Not sure about Galways. But can expect ex-VAT plus 10-15% plus GST. In the past month, I bought an Inverness and G&G from the UK. Customs charge 5% duty plus GST.

    DM Melb has StC but not Syd. Phillip Carr was in the country last month for trunk shows. If in Sydney, there's a StC stockist in Wahroonga.

    Howdy gang. I'm heading back into an office environment after being out of it for a while.

    I lost 17kgs so all my bespoke suits from Iris Tailor in Singapore no longer fit. If I had a week or two I would have probably flown back over there and had them alter them but I'm short of time.

    Where in Melbourne would you trust to alter the two chest pieces of a fully canvassed jacket?

    the chai, looks great. try it on and send us some photos. I like single button suits - very subtle and a nod to classic suiting. how did you find the service of Fremantle tailors? how many fittings were there? details of the trousers?

    Hi Guys,

    Selling some shoes. If interested, let me know and I'll work out a price for you in AUD.

    Thanks!

    I actually had two pants made of the same fabric by a previous tailor so I didn't think to get one at first. I however decided to and had a pair made. High waited with double forward pleats and side tabs. It isn't finished yet. I had three fittings. I brought my own fabric, lining and buttons so he charges 1500 AUD for cmt with pants. Overall I liked the service. Have thrown good money into Singaporean tailors and a couple made-to measure services but this time I am happy someone got it right. When I go to an event and have photos taken, I'll post some pictures. He makes them in a really strong Roman shoulder though, which is something I haven't seen in quite a while. But it figures because I think he was trained in Rome.

    Probably Arthur Korderas in South Yarra, he does Zegna's tailoring.

    He is good but slow, so give him plenty of time and then budget an extra week. Good luck.

    The thing that doesn't make sense is that the Australian retailers of Loake carry such a small range - and typically it's a lot of non-1880 stuff as well.

    Loake have severely shot themselves in the foot with their strategy, their brand and quality is not that strong that they can't be easily substituted...there are more and more options appearing everyday at the low-mid end of the premium GY footwear market.
