    Could not have said it better myself. Just because Ethan says so does not make it so. It is very easy to reframe things to suit your point. Judging by the number of people here who are in the legal profession, the irony is quite exquisite.

    Honest to God, the last 3-4 pages have been a back and fourth between "Hmm $350... should I spend it or not?"

    It's $350, unless you don't have a job then why are you so worried? You can't have everything dude, just make a choice.

    By the way, do you need to pay upfront at PJs or just a % deposit?

    Usually 50% upfront and the remainder when you collect the suit.

    Very nice - just write down everything your after with this suit, what you plan to use it for, etc. and Tom will bring out the fabrics he thinks are suitable. You can choose the lining and buttons as well.

    It's a hell of a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to hearing what you decided on.

    Can someone recommend a good place to buy some slim fitting chinos/khakis in Melbourne in a range of colours? dont want to take the risk online and find out the fit poorly.

    yeah probably dont ask for charcoal then... usually that ends up with the almost black varieties of grey. :) 1/2 or 1/4 lining are good options. Also look at the weight and openness of weave of the fabric that'll heap you breath.
    If you have jeans/pants from common brands that we may be familiar with im happy to help you re: fit on ours.

    Country road is an option. They have lots of stores around here:
    http://www.countryroad.com.au/shop/man/clothing/pants/60148930/Slim-Chino.html

    They were too slim for me, and it's hard to judge the fit from those pictures, because the model does not seem to have a rear-end.

    Stealing this post from the C&J thread since it saves me typing. Basically you can get a pair of Church's delivered for about $280. If you can go for the Black Calf over the Black polished. Not entirely sure on the fit of the 73 Last compared to others, maybe PoP or someone else who owns Church's could comment. Otherwise contact Herring directly.

    I have two pairs (of Church's) in calf which I am very happy with...this deal makes me think it might be worth getting a pair of black shoes with brogueing and get the double monks in brown or suede (that would please PoP and fxh.....wait did someone say people are over analysising their purchases).

    As far ordering from Herring goes I have found them extremely helpful, very fast at answering questions and the delivery time is only a couple of days. Recommended (also if you do a search or ask nicely here I think there is a shoe tree offer too).

    Unfortunately not! I basically sold everything I owned at the end of last year and went travelling. I am now due back in Australia in a week and I have to build a new wardrobe.

    That's a ripping deal on the Church's. Would love to hear from someone on how the 73 Last fits.

    Looks like Styleforum has already hit it. Pretty much everything is gone :/
