    Do any of you gents know where I could get a Barbour jacket tailored in Melbourne? I bought a To Ki To jacket which I received yesterday. Yes, I got caught up in the Skyfall hype surrounding the jacket! But it really is an amazing jacket and is perfect for what I was looking for.

    After reading about a million posts from people on various forums that they fit incredibly small, I ordered up a size and it's nowhere near as slim as I was led to believe it would be. It probably needs to be nipped in at the sides a little.

    So, any tailors that aren't going to butcher my nice new waxed cotton jacket? There's also a chest flap that sits behind the buttons which I'm thinking might need to be removed too. I cannot see myself ever needing it, and it's only going to get in the way.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Also, to the guy contemplating a new pen, I recently bought a Monteverde Invincia Stealth and I LOVE it. Beautiful weight, and it writes like a dream.

    Gentlemen: I am rather desirious of buying a belt from Brooks Brothers during their current 40% sale on (selected) accessories, however their international shipping rates are of course ridiculous and I'd like to avoid them. I don't currently have a parcel forwarding service set up and I'm not sure it's worth doing so for this one thing, though perhaps it would be--I'm not sure. Can anyone suggest a solution? Do any Melbourne people perhaps have a parcel forwarding service set up already that I could piggy back on?

    I use shipito. It has a lot of options from cheap + slow to quick + expensive. You can use my account, but there's no real advatage to just setting up your own (no sign up fee or anything).

    Price USA is quite reasonable, and they have a calculator on their website so you can gauge roughly how much it will cost you. Definitely recommended.

    ^^ I don't think you can advertise a business without being an affiliate, only personal sales!

    ^^ Thanks. I am in a process of making a menswear website. I will check for pricing to become an affiliate.
    These shirts are my first attempt to create mid range shirts(tm lewin equivalent) under $40 price point.

    I didn't realise $40 is mid-range. I thought mid-range was Borelli, Kiton, et al. Seriously, though, a well-fitting shirt for $40 - that's a steal. All the best :)

    No worries Gerry found me a source for the Barbour thornproof; anyhow what cut did you get on the 3sixteens and also did you size down? (cuz I didn't size down and stressing; fingers crossed)

    Lol mid rage meaning around $80-$90 tm lewin range shirt.
    So I am aiming for mid range quality at low range price – under $40 (;
    My shirts are all Malayans 2 fold cotton and tried by best with little details- non fused collar,4 piece split yoke and few little bits. And slim tailored fitting. Took me about 8 months to get all these organized for the first batch.
    And yes for some people mid rage is $200+….
