    If its the look that bothers you, all good. But if its the physical feel of it, don't be discouraged. I'm normally a wide fit and the chiseled toe cant be noticed comfort wise.

    Either way, they're both sexy

    Can anyone recommend a CBD barber (somewhere near 333 collins preferably) that can do a decent buzz cut/fade for somewhere under the $15 mark? I think paying anything over $20 for a clippers cut is ridiculous, but seems to be what most city places charge. My old Macedonian barber in the 'burbs used to charge me $12....

    Anyone tried these fellas?

    $25 suit insurance makes me :laugh:. It's your fault the suit doesn't fit, not theirs.

    Thanks for the thoughts. In the spirit of trying to build a wardrobe of staples, and if I was to steer clear of charcoal, should my addition be a navy pinstripe? Or should I move towards a a darker solid gray, or are there any other fabric/colour choices I should be considering?

    According to an email I received when a friend liked them on FB their "Collection" suits are wool/poly blends. 100% wool "suits" start at $399 as you have to buy the jacket and pants separately. The "$25" insurance gives you credit up to $100 for alterations. However that is given in store credit, which puts me off even more than the usual online MTM nausea.

    I've ordered institchu suits before and the $299 MTM suits are all 100% wool. I bought the suit insurance because I wasnt '100%' confident with my measurements.... surprise surprise, my suit and shirts were the perfect fit.... I've ordered MTM suits from 2 other sites and these are by FAR the best quality.

    Is a flannel suit overkill for Melbourne weather? I'm thinking of a single breasted in mid grey.
