LOL - "No Carminas for you! Next!"
I don't think you need to act a certain way, they'll be happy to have you there unless your default behaviour 'douchebag'.
I remember a few years ago he was being talked about as a potential GC winner and then he had a couple bad editions... can't remember which year, but didn't ride off the edge of a switchback?
Queue outside the Drake's and Edward Green pop up sale in London....
Everybody loves a bargain.

Yes, I like a bargain.
Has anyone bought an expensive suit from Ebay?
I am looking at new Brioni suits that have USD RRP of $4,500 for sale
on Ebay at about $1,400 ?????
The Sellers feedback looks fine.
Are they real and why so cheap?
Finally,I assume they are good suits?
Have you tried on this same fabric and cut in real life? If you haven't, then $1400 on something that may never fit as it should/as you like, is not money well spent. Just a thought.
Best menswear store in Melbourne. I don't get all this anxiety, I'm in my early 20s and never had a problem going there.
Never had a problem in AT.
Wish there was a store like this in Sydney...
Off the Cormet de Roselend in Rhone / The Alps, '07 -- The Chicken (Rasmussen) withdrawl year. Was in yellow on the road with chicken in the 2nd alps stage... There were some brutal stages to come tho. 7th in 06.
forgot to grab the linen jacket with blahman and co, so i got an sfer to proxy from singapore for only $80. he has pretty good feedback so hopefully i dont get robbed
I'm glad everything worked out. How do the measurements compare to the UK website we were looking at for sizing?
He has done a lot for tailoring of late, and congrats to him, but he's not alone there, so I don't think that's an entirely fair statement. Zink, for example, have been around since 1895. That's the epitome of success IMO, and they're still doing well with a thriving (both young and old) clientele. Cutler and Bijan are, similarly, doing very well with new and existing clients. I don't think P. Johnson has really done much more than those who have come before him. And there are plenty of other offshore MTM houses, just like P. Johnson, popping up throughout Australia, many as successful as Johnson (some less so).
Bespoke/MTM is going through a new-found popularity here, and that's a good thing across the board, but there are varied reasons for this.
Asian M = UK S
Asian sleeves are 1" shorter than UK.
Everything else seem exactly the same - even jacket length. Either White guys have gorilla arms or Asians have T-Rex arms. Dont know which.
Did the alterations already and although handwork is crude, its completely wearable. Actually looks slim like on the site now.
