    Yep a good point. It would be worth contacting Jamison and asking him for his opinion.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys (how do you quote more than one level in a reply by the way?), I might shoot a query to HY on the darkness of those navy options.

    Hey just wanted to give a shout out to Rekaris Shoes & Repairs on Lonsdale St Melbourne--first time I'd been there and the service was excellent, plus they didn't charge me anything for putting a stitch in one of my shoes to stop the tongue from slipping. Noice.

    Ralph Lauren has a nationwide 50% private sale at the moment (excluding Black and Purple Labels, which are 30% off - i.e. a RLBL for $1,300 odd if that suits you.).

    Most of it's crap, but go and take advantage of some excellent ties, made in Italy, for $70 odd.

    The Suit Company are pretty good - they have stores in quite a few places. I think that most of their stock is made in China but the quality is quite good and they have quite a few sizing options, including height, weight, build and so on. Have a browse through their online store here to get an idea of the different suit models on offer.

    Also, quite a few department stores offer various lines of suits - there are the overseas brands, of course, which will often have their own boutiques or concessions inside the department stores, but there will also often be Japanese suit sections, too. They are great for slimmer guys, particularly if you are not too tall or if your arms are not too long. Seriously, Japan is great for people who take a size 34 to 38 jacket.

    If you want to risk looking like a street photographer, you could always spend a little bit more and get the new "Leica-lite" Fujifilm Finepix X10 (the smaller brother of the wildly successful X100).

    Loving google translate:

    "Semi-skilled craftsmen worked hand suit and fit in your back and shoulders with Sucking, machine-made three-dimensional appeal form can not be achieved. Communicate directly to fabrics and good tailoring, floating feeling of the class is a basic design. "

    Am I dreaming if I want to find some half canvassed suits for about 20,000yen mark?

    I read today in the Sydney magazine that John Lobb started his first shoe shop in George St Sydney. Who knew?
