    Not the jackets but I have 3 pair of the trousers. They are beautifully made for the money. Cut is a bit funny though. Quite tight in the waist/seat compared to other makes and not that slim in the lower leg. Took a bit of work letting out waist/seat and slimming the legs from knee down to get the fit down. But they fit well now.

    In Sydney for couple of days. Bought the above tie today and be very interested in what the group think would compliment it by way of shirt combination and if possible, best suit options. Have ties covering the full spectrum, just never had an Orange tie so this is a bit of a puzzle to me. Be very appreciate of suggestions.

    Henry Bucks would be my first choice, they tend to turn over more Drakes than any others so they usually have the latest releases. You just have to search for them amongst all the others ties they stock. Suggest you have one of the team point out where they are. They have a couple of glen plaid ones left that are beautiful.

    The top check looks spot on. Makes you look grown up and even possibly well dressed. (did I jutst say that?)

    Surely (don't call me Shirley) you have enough brains to fold that hankie so mostly white shows?

    Edit:: I'd suggest a half Windsor or a Pratt with that collar.

    Hmmmm short wedding. Party dead by 9:30. Went with the check one, double 4ih (not because its the SF in thing, but because I'm short) on cutaway collar, and bought a white cotton hanky on the way there. $70 cab round trip. Not sure worth it.

    Blue complements orange very well. E.g. Navy suit, blue striped or checked shirt, orange tie. I do blue with Hermes orange quite a bit; so do these guys: http://patrickjohnsontailors.tumblr.com/post/11685326881/knitted-linen-and-camo-pcj http://mostexerent.tumblr.com/post/17363194917/thank-you-for-who-ever-put-this-montage-of-my-only

    Glad you like it!

    For Blahman's benefit, that one was an op shop suit. I've never been able to figure out how it ended up at the Salvos at about 1% of RRP (at the time), but I'm glad it did.

    Stupid bumpkin post office wasn't open Saturday morning. Now I'm going to have to sacrifice my lunch break to catch a tram and walk 20 mins each way in order to pick up my Cottonwork shirt.

    ^^ You need to get stuff sent to your work. The security guards at my work laugh at how many packages I get... :)

    Have we come to an agreement on a reliable Melbourne dry cleaner yet? Just noticed a small presumably grease stain on the lapel of one of my jackets I would like to get fixed.

    Not last I heard, still can't believe that such an obvious opportunity in the market hasn't been filled. I'm seeing Tom and Jen on Wednesday so I might ask them again as I seem to recall a mention that he may have found some place that seemed promising.
