    Half lined I think they called it, not fully lined anyway.

    TM Lewin ties are decent for the price I believe, especially when on sale (usually something like 3 for GBP60) and they have a nice range.

    Glad to help. I'm in Brisbane, too, and a few StyleForum members here get together on a semi-regular basis for a coffee, lunch or drink, usually in the city. You're welcome to come along to meet up with us if you are interested.

    Keep in mind that it's hard to find a 38s in a solid colour. Especially one you like on b&s. Stay away from Chester by Chester Barrie. It's their cheap diffusion line.

    Can anyone recommend a tailor in Melbourne that has a rivet machine? I've had a button pop off a pair Epaulet chinos that I'd like to get fixed properly.

    edit : for the record Epaulet has reimbursed me for the cost of getting it fixed.

    The cricket is on the radio, the country is in holiday mode and the SMH had this from Don'ts for Wives first published in 1913.

    Dont let your husband wear a voilet tie with grass green socks. If he is unhappily devoid of the colour sense he must be forcibily restrained.

    Yes well my how we have changed.

    Anyone pick up any thing during the BB sale? I finaly got the cordovan wallet i have been lusting after for a while.

    And in terms of Sydeny sales I picked up a nice Zegna tie from Heny Bucks and hopefully i will be joining the exodus to P Johnson to pick up suit for winter thinking a midnight blue pin stripe fabric, hope to get to the show room in the next week?

    +1 on Sam Hober, fantastic ties and great value for money. Delivery takes about 4 weeks from the date an order is placed.

    Just bought a khaki cotton summer suit with patch pockets from Herringbone today for $350 plus alterations. Given that my last two suits were P Johnson, I of course had to make some compromises on fit; mainly the jacket length is on the short side (say 2 or 3cm) but given its more of a 'casual summer suit' I am sure that I can pull it off and make it work (especially at that price).

    Which leads me to my next thought, that it is time to contact Tom to get another 'proper' suit made up; I am thinking of sticking with my usual three-piece plus an extra pair of trousers. I am leaning towards a either dark grey/charcoal or a navy/dark blue pin/rope/chalk stripe. Any thoughts on which I should prioritise?

    Personally, I think charcoal suits are best worn during winter only, so I would say that navy or a darkish shade of blue is more versatile. Better still, a mid grey.

    In the MTM space I already have a French navy and a mid grey. Really what I am trying to do is build a solid wardrobe of MTM suits over time.
