    Yeah I think any silk knit would go great. A bright colour or some stripes if you're feeling bold...

    Has anyone had experience with the MTM shirts by Oliver's Shirts on Miller St in North Sydney? Their sign says they start from about $160.

    Any other MTM shirt places I should check out around the CBD/lower north shore/eastern suburbs? I know of the one on Level 2 of the Strand Arcade but not many others. I've heard of Nakhle too but he's a bit too far out for me.

    Definitely looking towards the cheaper end, so any recommendations in that regard would be much appreciated.

    Have never bought a shirt from them so can't comment about value / quality of fabric but after they measure you I know for a fact that they use a tailor that is across the road in Tower Square.

    I asked the tailor once to create some working button holes on a jacket and the result was pretty ugly.. Another time I asked him if he could de-crease my jacket with a bit of steam and he did, but he also ironed my lapels flat...
    Despite that I still think he's very reasonable at doing the basics.. taking in jackets, trousers, shirts

    Id prefer something like jasons new plain 7fold silk ties or one of pjohnsons plain silk 7folds in a dark tone and perhaps a low buttoned cardigan instead of the v neck knit

    I have a couple of shirts from Oliver- bought about 3yrs ago. . I'm not much of an expert though so don't take my word on it.

    I do know they are prob my best fitting and Nicest fabric shirts that I own. Will prob need to get a new white one though- red wine on e cuff hasn't come out and left an ugly black mark.

    +1. Either a knit tie or, as Romp suggested, a grenadine or plain silk tie.

    Speaking of knit ties, there's an Internet store called the Tie Bar that has ridiculously cheap, decently wide silk knit ties. I haven't tied them but, at those prices, I am very tempted.

    I use Napisan Vanish powder instead of Oxy-Clean, which I couldn't find here.
