    That's the darker pair - they definitely get more wear than the slightly lighter pair.

    I also have an even lighter cotton pair, in RAF blue, that's part of a summer suit, and I do sometimes mix and match between the suit jacket pictured in that photo and the RAF blue cotton trousers, and the sand-coloured suit trousers and the RAF blue suit jacket.

    With the free shipping promotion at Mr Porter almost at an end, has anybody purchased anything? I myself bought a McQueen skull tie in navy, I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, but I've wanted it since I saw it in BBC's Sherlock.

    Blurry fit pic of new PJ suit (for J Mills):

    Another pic of said BD; that collar is just sublime and I highly recommend Pat's new line of shirts, either OTR or MTM. they're made by a new mob, which, apparently, does the shirts for Dunhill Bespoke as well:

    Sorry about the upside down pics, but I'm not sure how to fix the problem.

    Looks really good, CEP! Do you usually show that amount of cuff?

    The roll of the collar is great!

    PSA: Exquisite Trimmings is having a pretty good sale on right now, e.g. Drake's ties for UKP55

    Thanks, mate.

    I think Pat did a fantastic job with this one, given that I did not have time for a refitting, and simply described what changes I wanted over the phone. This then is the true skill of an experienced fitter: to be able to visualize how measurements translate onto a person's body IRL.

    Yeah, don't know what happened with the cuffs; they don't usually show that much.

    Might be that the sleeves need to be a little looser; will reserve that tweak for the next suit.

    Love the shoulders on the suit.

    I want to make a funny joke about your pictures being upside down (the ones showing the shirt), but all that's coming to mind is Southern Hemisphere jokes :'(.

    Hit up the 3sixteen popup store today; pretty cool but wish I could just buy stuff there instead of the weird online thing.
    Cep- looks fantastic; especially shoulders and the body (waist?)!

    PSA for anyone after some perfume (for self or others). There is an unreal sale going on at Peony in East Hawthorn. Was there today and picked up stuff like Parfums d'Empire for $10/bottle. There's still quite a bit of stock well under half price. If you click on my thrift thread link above you can see what I got for myself.

    Where do you guys go to / shop online for quality dress shirts for work and formal events? Most of the shirts I try on in Sydney are of sub-par quality and almost see through.
