    I also think that patch pockets arent all that "slimming" optically if youre a little heavier set.

    that said, if you constantly use the same tailor I think its good to go with subtle changes in pocket/shoulder/buttons/lapel etc so there is some variety amongst your suits

    Some one was asking about MJ Bale lapel width before and I just happened to do a WAYWRN post in mine, so thought i'd share for everyone interested. This is the mudgee weave. They are thinner than Herringbone for example, but not by much, maybe 1cm. Anyway, make up your own mind. Might look a bit strange with a 9cm tie but 6-8cm width ties will be fine.

    Today's outfit - I decided to wear an orange knit tie in honour of the recent knit tie feeding frenzy in the Oz Members thread!

    True - agree patch pockets have been around a long time agree, just not sure they will continue to be a prevalent as they are right now. Maybe Im wrong, they seem very popular.

    You legend. I'm very close to pulling the trigger on exactly that one so that was very handy. Am I right in thinking the suit in this link is the one you're wearing? http://www.mjbale.com/suits/2-suits-for-1000/mudgee-weave-grey-jacket


    Quote: The 38R in HB is fairly slim fitting - how have you found the MJ Bale cuts to be? (sorry to pester you with questions, nobody stocks MJ Bale in Canberra so it's hard to try one on and I need a suit fairly soon!)

    I'll be wearing a Navy suit with a white shirt and black shoes for a formal occasion (not black tie though) does anyone have a really nice idea or recommendation for a tie and pocket square?

    Thanks,
    Jordon

    With G&G, you have to get the trees in a separate parcel to scrape under the low value tax-free limit (if you want to be strictly above board), so I imagine the prices from a brick and mortar would be ridiculous.

    I don't own any herringbone suits but I've tried on a few Osakas and I would say that MJ Bale is even more slimming
