    Jeans or shorts would earn you twenty lashes with the Official Tie

    In all seriousness though, rocking up to a SF members meet without wearing something awesome is a bit like going along to a classic car meet on your bike. No one is likely to mind...but what's the point?

    In that case, a navy pinstripe would be a good option or perhaps a navy sharkskin. If you want to wear the suit over summer, a grey POW check would be nice.

    How structured or otherwise are the shoulders on the jacket Checky? If they're relatively soft it might be worth my while checking them out if they still have some.

    Had a look at Hugo Boss sales assistants' quick guide. If this is what service is, no wonder it's so screwed up:

    In my experience, Irene at made-to-measure alterations on the second floor of the GPO is faultless.

    If you are going three piece I would go for a navy pin stripe, a great classical look for business. The phots I have seen of P Johnson suits in this style look very stylish. I think from recent commnets posted here the time between order to deliver is 6 to 8 weeks?

    Just announced on ABC AM the OZ$ is now 80 cents on the Euro, sounds like 2012 is the time for a shopping spree in Europe.

    Yep, agree that a three piece navy stripe is a great look. My wife and I just booked a trip to England and Italy for middle of this year - I am already salviating at the thought of a few choice purchases. :D

    Does anyone have a fabric suggestion for a classic navy (or blue, might go a bit lighter than navy) sport coat? I'm thinking patch hip pockets, something that will work with chinos as well as wool trou.

    I've been reading up on this and Crispaire and Fresco seem to come up quite a bit:

    We might see you there, we'll be in Italy and the UK in the June/July period :)

    I quite like the Wool/Mohair airforce blue suit that PG has. I think it's Loro Piana. It might be a touch smooth for your uses though.

    I'm a fan of the Loro Piana sharkskin 'navy' (not that dark) that I have a suit in. I think a suit in that fabric is pictured on the pjohnson tumblr somewhere. Or if you wanted to go slightly lighter again the Ariston doppio ritorto sharkskin is also really nice.

    Thanks for the suggestions...you don't think sharkskin would be a bit smooth/shiny for an odd jacket?
