Not sure, how much do PJ want to charge for it?
I had a very good friend of mine get married over the weekend. The suit was P Johnson MTM. A tuxedo, actually. While the jacket's fit and cut were fine, I found the legs on the trousers too narrow and disproportionate to the arms and the chest of the jacket. A bit disappointed.

Damn - I left while this legend was still playing!...

We really missed a trick with this new thread. Big time.

'Guys - what's up with the Shoes here?' is one of the great opening lines. Right up there with the first lines of Seinfeld - 'See, now to me, that button is in the worst possible spot.'

Where do you guys normally buy your ties for work from? Prices at the usual suspects vary greatly and even so, I feel funny paying $50+ for a tie.

Seriously, op shops. Here is my most recent haul:



Clockwise from top: Harvie & Hudson grenadine, T&A, T&A, T&A, Herringbone Made in Italy. All $2 each.

Regarding the cardigan with collared shirt and no tie, my shirts are cutaway or semi- cutaway. I think it might look dorky with the collar flapping out, aka Bing Crosby playing golf (although I do love his singing).

Guys - what's up with the Shoes here?

Some of the Fugliest shoes I have ever seen. Everything is pointed and 'Gondola' shaped.
I even walked past a guy in the Melbourne CBD yesterday in a white pair, with a black suit.
Some scarey shit.

And don't get me started on them hobo beards - is there a razor blade shortage hereor something?

Sadly, shoes in Australia are hideously designed and shockingly overpriced. Most men think that Aquila is the height of fashion and that shoes with twin seams running to a peculiarly shaped toe are elegant and desirable. Yes, I've seen quite a few fellows wearing white shoes with suits. I thought that went out with the 1980s, along with gold chains and wide collared, open-necked shirts but it appears that they are making a comeback...

I still remember years ago when buying my suit for my Year 12 formal, and my mates laughing at me for not buying Aquilla, which were 'the best in the world', and for going for Meermin instead.
