When are they doing this?
club works for the square headed crew. great effort.
Would it be rude to ask how much you are paying for the blazer?
I have two pairs of HY trousers (a flannel and a tropical wool) and they're excellent. Perfect. If you have the money, I don't know why you'd buy anything else.
Edit: I'm 5'10" and very skinny (30" waist).
Any second now Guido is going to come in here and yell at you all for asking how much PJohnson charges.
Yeah I'm just trolling him
From what I have heard of HY, they are made for men with skinny thighs/not much of a butt. If you want somewhere that does good odd trousers for more athletic builds check out Epaulet's Rudy fit trousers: http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-Brands-cln-Epaulet-cln-Trousers/Categories
Thanks Lachyzee. The HY fit makes sense given the founder's build.
I alter most trousers anyway - as I'm all over the shop fit wise. I have a flat butt, moderate thighs and, small calves and very thin ankles. In fact, I'm somewhat carrot-shaped in the leg it would seem
don't talk to me about fit challenges at the moment.... I've put on 4kg's in the last 3 weeks because of some medication I'm on at the moment. Safe to say some of my pants are somewhat, shall we say, snug.
Had the same experience with Howard Yount - didn't fit across the thighs at all and given my limited knowledge the pants appear to be very well made.
Actually I find the SBS crew tend to often be quite adventurous with their outfit.
Perhaps because some part of their target audience is also quite well/adventurously dressed by Australian standards: e.g. the older men from European backgrounds that you often see wearing nice sportcoats/caps around town.
Ah, not coming now as wifey returning from interstate today. As I just got married I don't think I should go to this MTO, might be tempted to buy something i shouldn't To be honest I wasn't that interested in the MTO, more the shoes and the free drinks lol. Next time!

That's too funny, my father ran his business out of that shop (Anthony's Tailoring) for decades!
