    The ACCC was sarcasm gone wrong over the internet.

    I think you are a right jmills - I am probably just partial to a 2x100 shirt.

    I think going down to 30" would have been a mistake. Let alone how could you have done them up :)

    There was no need to edit your post.

    It is true that the 2 x 100 grade would have several variations within it. The question is whether the variations are big.

    Luxire looks like it is a step above CT. Probably one of the best MTM shirting sites I would imagine.

    agreed.

    i have the petite standards which are pretty slim. i'm a 32 waist, sized down to 30. i slept in them wearing another pair of trousers beneath. now they're more a size 31.5 (thighs stretched a tiny bit, but waist definitely stretched by 1.5 sizes). any smaller and you'd have to get all your shirts taken in [​IMG]

    I read somewhere that APC denim had changed to TTS, so I didn't size down two when I bought my Petit Standards :fu:

    I'll have to try to sell them off, they are NWOT, tagged size 30 but measure as a 32.

    Hey guys

    Ordered a couple of suits online from MJ Bale. However, they really don't have the length I need (I'm 6'4" and 110 kg. I know, I was dreaming) so they have to go back. I am a big fan of the soft shoulder though, and I can't really find anything that's soft that do long sizes.

    Can anyone recommend elsewhere for a RTW suit, or am I going to have to go MTM to get what I need?

    I'm new here so if I've posted this in the wrong spot, or it could be better posted elsewhere, mea culpa.

    Cheers

    I got it -but then I'm particularly attuned to a bit of a wink, nod and snark over the net.

    If you go an buy sheets - theres Egyptian cotton, hankies, t shirts. Basically I take it that most well known high end shirt materials makers will probably be using Egyptian cotton. Will the mass marketers with online sites, catalogues etc be using it - maybe - maybe not? Others will use it to describe their best or most luxurious material.

    The origin of the cotton probably isn't as important as the ply , weave and other matters.

    I sized down to 28 for my last pair of APC NCs (30 normally), could just get the buttons done up.

    Threw some water on the waistband and other tight areas then went for a vigorous 4km cycle on my single speed, painful, but they stretched out no dramas.

    At 6'4, I think MTM will stand you in better stead than trying to find an RTW that fits. You'll likely enjoy the experience more, too :)

    Thought so. I'm a bit wary of the online MTM sites though, heard a few horror stories. Am I being unnecessarily cautious?
    $1500 is my upper limit, any ideas? I have read (from unreliable internet sources) that P Johnson starts around this mark.

    For $1500 you can get P Johnson. I picked up my latest a week or so ago and it was $1400.

    Highly recommended.
