    Mate awesome job on the pair. How long does it take you to shine a pair like this ? Is it brand new pair ? I didn't see any creases.

    I think Gerry's segue was brilliant. Just wanted everyone to know.

    Thanks, will check out Boglioli - I've actually had a couple of their sportscoats wishlisted on MrPorter for some time now - just never got around to purchasing 'em. Might be time to do so over the next couple months.

    Thanks mate, when I wear a shirt without the jumper the sleeves do peak out from under the cuff, but I think the sweater was causing a few issues in the pic. Will try a few shirts again and double check.

    Agree with the odd dimpling not being ideal - will try and figure out what exactly is causing that. Edit: just realised I had my wallet in my inside jacket pocket - that might be the culprit.

    Henry Bucks is pretty close to me on O'Connell street, so will pop in there some time and see what they have in stock.

    Ah true - I guess it's all relative - Monday to Friday I wear a navy or charcoal suit with white/light blue shirt and tie. So compared to that the jeans/sportscoat combo feels a lot more relaxed to me. Normally I would be wearing chinos and a polo on the weekend, but it was a bit colder where I was and had to go to lunch to meet some friends, so thought I'd layer a little bit more than I usually did.

    @Journeyman:

    Here's the jacket fabric under halogen lights - looks a lot different under natural light but it's dark out at the mo'! The red stripe is a bit darker and more pronounced IRL.

    @Akula: yep I think a slightly higher collar on the shirt would look better as well.

    Nicholas DC, as informative as some of the posts here are, don't let them dictate the way you dress. #personalstyle is all about making mistakes. That cable knit jumper is dope though.

    Thanks to charliechan for donating to #CKtasselloaferfund, the shirt is now sold.

    Thanks. The tips are now shined like the rest [​IMG]

    This took me around 20-30 or so very light coats. Some shoes are much faster, some take longer - just depends.

    This is a brand new pair but I've worn them around the house to make sure there would be no creasing at the cap which would crack the finish.

    True that, but there's too much expertise in this thread to not get feedback now and again - helps me figure out things I wasn't thinking about before.

    I find this thread to be far more hospitable to newer entrants to the menswear 'game' than many of the other threads of SF, which is great. [​IMG]

    Actually, I would say 'mistakes', nothing is wrong in the world of #personalstyle.

    What colour did you get TBM?
    I ordered a pink one but got the size wrong so am awaiting a white one in its place (pink sold out).

    I got the chambray in blue denim colour. Shame the pink is all sold out. I got a size M, I thought I'd be an L but Rob told me to get an M and he was spot on. They're so good, I'm sure you'll love yours, PS.

    ^^ Think I have the same trousers. Great outfit CW.

    For anyone doing the MTM shirt thing, or just interested in how shirts should fit in general, I thought this post I found from Despos in another thread might be of interest:

    "
    Measure the shirt flat on a table, shirt has every button buttoned. Measure across the chest at the bottom of the armhole. Make sure the shirt is stretched out flat and not bunched up anywhere.

    If you have a 40" chest and add 3" to the circumference of the shirt chest you will get 21.5" when you measure the shirt the way described. Total measure is 43", this is a very "snug" fit. This may be way too tight for some or just snug to others. Depends on your tolerance for a close fit. 40" chest + 2" would be a very tight fit. Not recommended. A deep breadth would pop a button.

    40 + 4" is a trim fit. Measuring across the chest will be 22"

    40 + 5" is normal fit by today's standards. Even + 6" would be right for some.
    Those big baggy BB shirts are something like +8" or sometimes more in the chest.

    Works the same for the waist except don't use your trouser waist measurement. Use the measurement over any love handles. The largest part of your waist above the trouser waist. if you use your trouser measurement, the shirt won't fit.

    If you want a good fit without much extra fabric but not over trim try +5" on the chest and +4" on the waist. Again, how comfortable these formulas work depend on the individual and your body type. What is loose or tight is very subjective to each individual.

    Cheers, yeah they are my favourite trousers. I really want a pair of the brown flannels too which are on sale at the moment but I'm still on the fence on account of the delays and slipping communication with HY at the moment. I'll give it a few weeks and re-assess, hopefully things will be a bit smoother by then.

    Re HY I ordered a pair of pants on 4/2, got shipping confirmation on the 10/2 and they were in my hands on the 18/2 so no issues from my end.

    The shipping delays could also be snow-storm related.

    That's good to hear but I know a few other members (LonerMatt I think?) have had a lot of problems of late with no confirmation of shipping and emails, PM's etc un-answered for weeks. I've also not had any problems in the past and knowing the reputation Jamison has, I'm sure the delays and issues will be short lived but still, bad service is bad service regardless of the product.
