    r.e. Trousers - why not get them made up? Then you can specify exactly how you want them cut, fabric, etc.. As well as a couple of bespoke suits, I have had some lovely trousers made up at Matthew Lawrence's place in Paddington. Think I paid around $180 a pair. Also try a decent tailors. I have a suit in for alterations at M&R Tailors on York St at the moment and he seemed very knowledgeable (but I haven't got my suit back so can't vouch for them yet).
    You will want to start a relationship with a good tailors, so getting a pair of trousers made up is a decent way to start.

    Loake 1880's - They run a little large for me too. Can't comment on Meermins.

    Yes I also went down, I don't have much to add other than I was hoping for a slightly better discount than the $450 for most suits, which isn't much of a saving over the 2 for 1K deal, or the recent 30% off sale they had.

    I think the $250 jackets are the best thing there.

    Hi Guys,

    WRT a Melbourne Meetup, I am in town all week starting the 18th so would be keen to meet you all - I am playing the Australian Open so don't know what point I will be occupied with that until, but later in the week would be great if you could be so kind as to accomodate me.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    On a similar topic, has anyone ever been into Emmanuel Dakis on Chapel Street, Melbournet? I wonder if it might be a good place for this sort of thing and would love to hear of any experiences. It is just up the road from me so I should really front up and visit myself but he is usually shut when I pass on the weekend.

    Is it just me, or is that a high button stance on what is, a short jacket?

    Yes, Williams St. Really nice chap.

    Standard flat front suit type trousers, belt loops, no cuffs. I'm a bit funny about pockets, but hard to describe. I guess I like them big enough to take my wallet, nothing more, but just long enough that it doesn't fall out if I happen to slouch when sitting. Lightweight worsted (can't recall details), a brown and a grey. Summer trousers for when I can't bring myself to wear a suit.

    I'd like a pair with fishtails made up next....
