    ^ Done. Many thanks for the tip. Thinking about picking this up; http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Exquisit...Sport_Coats&hash=item1e6a680c9b#ht_821wt_1185

    Not sure if I need it though. Starting a grad role in 2 weeks and already have the following;

    Suits - 1 Navy, 1 mid grey and 1 charcoal
    Shirts - two white (one is a dobby stripe), 1 bengal blue stipe, few gingham and lavender pinhead
    Pants - lands end canvas herringbone grey chinos
    Blazer - 1 navy blue

    Thinking it would be good for the warmer days during autumn?

    ^^ That jacket has a super low gorge...

    Why don't you have any light blue shirts? For me they're the ultimate staple...

    ^ I have two white/light blue stripe shirts (look light blue from a distance). I haven't found worthy plain light blue shirts yet. Might get them made if the CW sample is OK. They look like this;

    Also, the CottonWork support took 12 minutes to honour my request. Pretty impressed.

    I saw that one yesterday and was considering it but the shoulders were just slightly too big for me. Are you going to get it?

    Still undecided. Will likely give it a miss as other things are needed but it would be a nice addition to the wardrobe.

    Ordered a couple myself last Friday. $60 a piece, figured it was worth a punt. Shipping was a bit steep for a single shirt though ($30)

    Low buttoning point, low gorge, slanted lapels, heavily padded shoulders. It all looks very 80s.

    Just my $0.02, but I'd only get that if I was going to a Miami Vice costume party.

    If it is to follow that the jacket bottom should bisect the body, it doesn't sound quite right to me. Your neck and head combined can't be only 8" long, and even after taking the heel height of 1.5" it still won't sound right.



    That jacket looks way oldschool. super low gorge, wide lapels, and a buttoning point that is probably at the navel...

    edit: d'oh Jman got there before me.

    :laugh: Brooksfield shirts.
    I love them. Can get them regularly at 25 bucks a pop and if lucky sifting through the sample rack I can get them for 10 bucks.

    Yeah I quite like their Luxe range. Wrote them an email asking if they would consider making a white button cuff luxe shirt with a spread/cutaway because a small point collar is the "red haired step child of the shirting world" and never heard back.
