    It was an Italian store wasn't it? Maybe try about 5-10 pages back in the thread.

    Because with shirts and suits where the fit must be precise, its a bit of a risk to throw hundreds on something that you don't get to try on.

    I definitely agree with you on the waiting part, that is hell especially with USPS snail pace service, but the low prices and the wider availability of items makes up for it


    Well I have a body type that generally fits very well OTR for most designers and I always make note of the return policies. Honestly though, if there was no online shopping what kind of options am i really left with in Sydney?


    I'm not sure what was mentioned but framesdirect and pretavoir are good

    After trying Essenza, went and tried Colonia and C. Assoluta at DJs today. Colonia on my left wrist Assoluta on my right. Have to say, my untrained nose smell them to be exactly the same when first applied. After 1hr, I'm liking Assoluta more if I smell the air close to my wrist. But I detect a faint gentle sweetness that I like very much when I keep my wrists away. Can't for the life of me figure out which one is it that is giving that off. Any one have any ideas?

    I just noticed 'colon' and 'ass'. :laugh:
    Glad the fragrances don't smell like that.

    Briony buys UK. Since uniqlo doesn't accept different billing and shipping adddress for the first order you will ha e to custom purchase. Normally this costs 15 pounds but there is a special price running till Nye, 5 pounds. I contacted her about a duffle three days ago but she never replied and now sold out. I don't know what happened because response is normally prompt

    Measure your precise fitting shirts and suits and then compare measurements with online ones.

    The thing with online retailers is that 99% of them are not like B&S. For jackets most of the time they just list chest measurement and with shirts just neck and sleeves. Not enough measurements to know how they will fit at all.

    I don't think I've ever encountered a time when I couldn't get hold of a specific measurement.

    Right so suppose I want to know the measurements for a Brooks Brothers Milano cut sports coat in 36R..how would I do this? And if the answer is 'talk to customer service,' should I trust what they tell me?
