    I remember making my biggest internet typo when talking about getting my shirts measured while shitting sitting. I spend most of my day sitting down, and when I'm meeting people and discussing things, I'm usually seated across from them.

    That's when I need to be most comfortable.

    I don't care that there's a little blousing when I'm standing. Nothing a little military tuck cannot solve.

    I also am not a fan of darts on my shirts but because I have an 'empty' back, they are necessary.

    I don't have an accurate picture to show you guys what i mean - my first batch of AC shirts are too big now. But here are some that could hopefully give you an idea:

    AC (first batch, early 2012)

    I have a navy peak lapel suit from them, and I was happy with it. Hopefully you are too.

    Also, I have a pair of romaleos that I've had for over a year now, and use them 4 or 5 times a week. Don't look after them at all and they've held up well. I think they're more suitable for wide feet than adidas boots - at least that's what I've been told.

    Finally took the plunge on my wedding suiting and used it as an excuse for my first P Johnson commission. Met with Tom last night and it was quit an experience. Those guys seem to really know their stuff. Still a little nervous about how it's going to turn out given then fabric I wanted wasn't actually there to see, and I was so overwhelmed by the number of options I pretty much let him guide me to some pretty 'interesting' options. That said I don't think I've seen a single suit on their tumblr that hasn't looked awesome so I think I'll be safe. I've heard people say on here not to just go in and rely on your tailor for all the decisions but hopefully that doesn't include these mad geniuses.

    Congratulations! I think you're very safe with Tom's guidance. This might even lead to more than one suit - it always starts with the first [​IMG]

    Sounds like a very versatile suit that I'm sure will look great and will serve you well for a long time after the wedding.

    Yes, I agree with Gerry. I was looking for a particular micro check blue poplin shirt and Tom said he knew just the fabric but did not have a swatch to show me. Based on previous experience I trusted him and, what do you know, it is a great shirt, exactly what I wanted.

    A good relationship with your tailor is a wonderful thing. They should be able to tell what to avoid (even if you thought you wanted it) as well as advising what to get.

    My new brown PJ suit is great. It is my first unstructured suit from them. I really like how light and comfortable it is.

    In other news, my Carmina String Loafers are on the way...something to look forward to early next week.

    Hmmm. Knew there was something I forgot to ask about. I'd assume mines not unstructured since never mention. Are all their suits full canvas?
    What line do you guys usually go for? The classic, Roma or Napoli?

    All PJ stuff is fully canvassed (to my knowledge - think Romp clarified this a few days ago).

    I have just gone the standard (presumably the Classic) for my 3 suits.

    Best value, most durable and long lasting medium thickness dress socks around the $10-15 mark?

    Pantherella, Smart Wool, Gold Toe? Wool, cashmere, cotton, blends? Different for summer and winter?

    Tried searching but all of Pink Socks posts show up instead. Educate me.

    It looks too tight in the waist. Try sitting down and you need more room. Plus being Italian he probably tucked his shirt into his jocks.


    Either fully canvassed or uncanvassed (unstructured)

    There are now two canvas options too. A new light canvas which is our new standard and our previous canvas.

    Ps anyone see the Herringbone claim on Facebook that Crockett and Jones are exclusive to them in Australia? Fairly uninformed/misleading

    They wrote this: "Available in-store and online exclusively in Australia from Herringbone."

    Where else can you currently get C&J online in Australia?

    Well, if you're talking online whether or not it is in Australia is kind of academic...

    If the price were the same from Pediwear and Herringbone, I would prefer to buy from the Australian site given the cost of shipping and returns.

    going to have to disagree here. Ex aircraft maintenance engineer over here. I fix everything I own, fridges, cars, tv's, hell even computers. All at the tender age of 23. Also stripped and built a few cars...

    I'm the same. I fix everything that goes wrong around the house with one simple tool - my credit card.

    Just waiting until Carmina starts making double monk boots in navy shell. Also curious to see how the patina develops on navy shells.
