    I'd get OCBD button downs.

    Getting a shirt right is nowhere near to getting a suit right, with every new MTM suit provider I took, and they both in Sydney, the first 2 suits required a quite a few alternations, which they covered.

    I would not recommend do an online order unless they will cover for alterations, and that is a tricky matter.

    I know those two things aren't comparable, i just wanted to work in an art history joke (and i DO need a couple of new white shirts...). I've seen that a few places have pretty comprehensive alteration/return policies, you'd have to be completely daft to pay for an online suit without that assurance!

    Sparing that, where do Brisbane-based folk go for their MTM?

    Is an OCBD button down like an ATM machine? Or a PIN number? :p

    My biased opinion is that you require an experienced fitter to do your measurements properly. The brisbane guys can refer you to someone trustworthy.

    Its simply not possible to ask a friend to take your chest and waist measurements, type them in online and expect a good fitting suit. Even if alterations are free, unless they are minor there are many areas where you will throw the balance or not be fitted correctly that cannot be fixed

    Deer is certainly the premier option. Don't, repeat don't, go to Cloakroom.

    Pop- Well played!
    Oli- OCBD stands for Oxford Cloth Button Down so it sounds as if your saying Oxford Cloth Button DownButton Down.

    Cheers all.
    Yes I think a few nice whites are in order for night time. Something like a plain classic white and an OCBD white, to complement my increasing light blue range (light blue suits my complexion more)...
