Thank you for the welcome Osiris.Welcome to the forums Reniliaz.
If you want to explore MTM at that price point you have Oscar Hunt and SuitShop in Melbourne.
If this is your first work suit and you've got a grand to spend, then do as Osiris says and get yourself two suits shipped down from SuitSupply in Sydney (a plain navy and a regulation charcoal) or go into MJ Bale (for $1K you could get three suits at that price from the outlet). When you're happy with the fit, then take them into Sam's alterations (in the city, we'll give you the address) and he'll tweak them to suit you perfectly.Hey fellas, new member, first message. Based in Melbourne. Hope you're all well.
Finally secured work after graduation, and I'm looking to buy an MTM suit.
I understand this is a bit of a repetitive question (I've checked out many threads on multiple forums on this topic), but it's a big purchase for me and I want to make sure it's right.
Is there a consensus on the best option(s) for an MTM suit/OTR suit with alterations, around the $1000 mark? I just read a reccommendation of SuitSupply in the previous pages but they have no stores in Melbourne.
I have seen frequent mentions of Oscar Hunt and Suit Supply; are these my best options are this price point? Are there any superior or similar options?
Cheers. Help is deeply appreciated.
Are you a reporter at The Daily Planet, by any chance?I have wide shoulders, a skinny waist, and wide thighs. If I find a suit that fits my shoulders, the waist is often far too big. If I find pants that fit my thighs, I need a significant taper, and the pants are often too long. Bit annoying for sure.
