    Posted in the specific thread, but may as well have it here as well: I had two pairs of trousers altered at M & R this week (Level 1 49 York St). One of the pairs required a fair amount of work: rise shortened, legs narrowed and waist taken in. Am very pleased with the result, and will definitely go back for any future alterations.

    I thought that might be a vanda square when I saw you this afternoon!

    Those are some good looking ties.

    Not a bad place to buy shirts from for someone who's just started in the workforce and needs to build a basic rotation of shirts.

    At that price point, I personally favour TM Lewin, because Lewin shirts have a split-yoke shoulder and their collars and cuffs are unfused and feel really good for what they are charging.

    I'll let you know on the cloakrooms prices if i get an email back. I went into their Syd store last year actually to inquire about a pair, they had about 4 items in the whole store (think the Syd 'store' was basically just to have a presence here) and ended up leaving my details but didnt hear anything back but i didnt chase them up either. Grenson have pointed me in the direction of them as well as Beggar Man Thief in Melbourne as local stocklists so they might be another option. Will also be interesting to see prices too. I Have checked out Pediwear but the Tom Suedes arent stocked on the site but i might be able to place an order regardless.

    Interestingly, also thinking of grabbing some C&J Hallam or Tetbury suedes and Pediwear have said they have 'already used all of our allocation for March and have full waiting lists for April, May and June so we cannot now place this order with the factory until the beginning of July. Delivery could be up to 8 - 10 weeks thereafter depending on the factory stock situation and production schedules'. So like end of the year basically haha.

    I'm looking for a mid grey flannel myself and this would be perfect if not for the slanted pockets on the jacket, seems to be an english thing. I've had a few MTM suits with those pockets over the years and I end up hating them after a few months. Could wear the trousers seperate easy not sure about the jacket though. There are some nice fabrics in there though for fairly cheap.

    Anyone have pointers towards a decent maker of contemporary soft-shouldered, slim fit tweed jackets? The recent Melbourne preview of winter has got me thinking along those lines and some searching the past few days hasn't turned up a whole lot of obvious options. My PJohnson budget has all been consumed for now so getting one made by them isn't really an option, and Herringbone don't have anything in their current collection at least. Thanks for any info.

    Try Christopher Forbes online for C&J. They seem to have models in stock and are quick to response to enquires. Also ship very fast and get a free pairs of socks (red in my case, no pink unfortunately).

    Could you let me know if you find anything? I know what you mean about the pockets and that's putting me off a little as well but I'm not finding much else so as far as mid grey flannels are concerned.

    Maybe try the Hackett concession inside David Jones. I thought they had a tweed collection, so they might carry something like that.

    Another option is a place called Edwards of Manchester - I recently purchased a pair of C&J Westbourne shoes from them (got the last pair in my size luckily) and shipping was quick (ordered Thursday, arrived the following Tuesday) and service was good. I note they sell the Hallams.

    Cheers

    Co-sign...Service is top notch... Also, they usually (about once a year) have a 20% off everything sale. 20% off + VAT reduction makes everything tempting... LOL...They stock Edward Greens and Gaziano & Girling... I was able to score a pair of black EG captoes for about $AUS650 shipped to my house...
