    Looking good, CEP. The crease might just be a posture thing. I have to say, that's a great looking suit!

    Looks great mate. I think with the pulling you could do with having the waist let out very slightly, like 1-2cm. Still keeping shape but giving you a little more room. But I know this is the way Patrick makes coats. Still lovely though.

    Great suit, congrats. My observations is that the P Johnson house style is to have the top button on a SB tighter than might ordinarily be recommend, it's exacerbated of course when one loads their pockets with wallet/blackberry. Notwithstanding, the jacket should 'settle down' with a few wears.

    Quick note to thank those of you who provided the heads up about the David Jones sale. Picked up a couple of nice Thomas Pink shirts and socks. Had a look through the knitwear on the floor, nothing special at all. Icebreaker was limited to 3 pieces, Hackett had a few ok jumpers, but, nothing special - perhaps only standout was Duchamp maybe. Shoes....geesh I dont know how to describe what is going on there!!. Anyway, was good scrounging through all the gear they have. Has been a few weeks. MJ Bale has certainly made an appearance. Other observation - all those ugly skinny ties, Burberry, ZZegna and all the others are being cleared out. No grenadines to be found, think I check out the Navy Grenadine on Henry Carter, looks very nice.

    ^ The Zegna section at DJ's in Melbourne has some horrendous customer service. I went in there 3 different days last week trying to BUY a discounted DB ZZegna but no one was around. The first time the guy was on a personal call at the back, I could hear everything he was saying. Waited 10 minutes before going to the lower end counters near Joe Black and was told only Zegna people can put through the sale. Put it back and went the next day. Literally one sales assistant on the whole floor (Anthony Squires). Said the same thing. The last day I tried the entire thing on, with a shirt and tie and walked around looking for someone to pin the hem. The girl in the ZZegna section literally walked passed me about 4 times to go in the back.

    Left it on the floor of the change room I was so disgusted. And I used to work for DJ's. There's no use complaining to them because I know for a fact they don't give a fuck.

    Thanks for the offer.

    Gents,

    It's about time I started investing in better shoes and looking after them rather than paying through the nose for poor quality substitutes...

    Looking to spend $200-300, and looking for some brown cap toes to kick off my investment strategy...

    Any recommendations?

    It all depends on the kind of last you like really.

    Herring Churchill's look nice and the last is not too rounded but not too pointy.

    I have some Herring Chamberlains which I love but they aren't as dark brown as I had hoped...so I just splashed on some C&J Hallams (at great expense to the management....).

    In summary I think a good strategy could be to choose a). what kind of brown you want and b). what kind of shape you are looking for.
