Had a set of suits for a friends wedding made there late last year. As a tall and slim fellow, the fact they offer most things in a 38L has led me to start there for most things.

Custom suits were quite good, fit a wide range of body types fairly well. Their block is fairly neutral, slim without being skinny, slightly fuller than you may expect.

I've found their shirts good, but maybe a little delicate. Admittedly I am wearing them to teach practical subjects, so they have a hard life.

Keep in mind all their custom order work comes with no questions asked returns, which is a nice bonus.
Thanks for the feedback - much appreciated. Especially good to know about custom order returns.

Cheers

Do you mean in person?

You can order swatches from various companies. The easiest place to get swatches from is Huddersfield Fine Worsteds. They mail it to you for free (takes a couple of weeks).

Ideally, yes, in person.

Thanks for the tip about HFW, I didn't know they sent them for free. I paid $50 to get swatches posted from Magee!

I have a deceptively simple need that is proving ridiculously difficult to meet. Does anyone know where I might be able to get my hands on some pure cotton (not cotton-linen) white handkerchiefs with hand rolled edges?

I prefer pure cotton as it tends to have a bit of movement, whereas cotton-linen once folded holds its shape but looks a bit fussy.

I bought some from Seward at David Jones back in the day for probably about $12 each, but DJs haven't stocked them for years and apparently Seward have now gone out of business...
Take a look here (although the pricing isn’t Seward): https://en.simonnot-godard.com/shop/boutique.php?s=15-la-pochette-blanche

Looking for a full length (i.e below the knee) cashmere (or wool or blended) top coat, preferably unstructured. Similar to this one from P Johnson, but looking for a little cheaper (up to $2k).

Hi folks. I'm traveling for work to Australia next week, Sydney and Canberra (university visits). Can I ask about what weight clothing to pack?

Sydney weather looks like late spring/early summer in temperature though I understand it's winter. Canberra looks a little bit cooler (New England, northeast US so 60 to 70 F...15-20 C??).

Maybe I can put this in terms of weight for trousers.
400gm cords seem too heavy, especially as I'm trying to travel light. I'm guessing maybe 300 gm weight heavier cotton or even heavy linen trousers for Sydney, 12-14oz denim for streetwear. Light weight knits and light to mid weight wool jackets?

Any advice appreciated.

Wear late fall/early winter clothes.
18 degrees Celsius is already reasonably cool. I would suggest adding a medium weight jacket with a light knit between shirt and jacket. The tops of 20-21 in Sydney isn't for very long during the day.

Sydney is pretty mild at the moment, cool mornings but sunny days. Mid-weight should be fine.

Canberra is completely different. Bring some warm clothes!

It's not cold in Sydney, we are apparently going to have our warmest winter ever this year.

It's still about 20 degrees (celsius) during the days, going to around 14 at night.

I hate it, I need to wear my coats and shetlands.
