How many guys here own a dinner suit?
I have a venue in mind where we could do a sit down dinner in a private function room so I'll explore some options and get back to everyone, but it looks like the minimum number to make this a go would be 15.
they certainly know how to charge for alterations....
Do any of you guys with Viccel experience know the approximate length difference between their regular and OTC socks? I can't find that info anywhere. I wear my pants with no break so I'm a little worried the regular length will result in my leg showing when sitting down. I think OTC would be a bit long for my tastes though.
Give it a try. Feels great.
OTC is amazing.
I'd like them a touch longer but I'm tall (2m) and too cheap for MTM socks.

My Viccel order arrived today, after around 8 business days. I ordered the size 10-11.5's in the Winter Weight, and the OTC models were approximately 26 inches long, with the mid calf measuring 18. I think they're an absolute bargain for the price, they look and feel great.
Just got a reply from Pepe at Meermin. They've stopped mail orders for a while due to demand. I guess I'll wait to see what their online store looks like.
SF strikes again. I wonder if many of these smaller operations expand their facilities and subsequently run into financial difficulty when SF gets bored of the latest Flavour of the Month.
Guys I received this email from Pepe @ meermin just now, so looks like anyone who doesn't already have an order in/pending is out of luck for a while until the web store is up. Bummer. Not too much of an issue for me as I don't need my next pair till march next year.
First of all, thank you for your interest in Meermin.
- We are currently working on the launch our online shopping service for our website: www.meermin.es.
- Due to the big amount of orders received in the last month we are not taking more mail orders, because our factory is currently overloaded.
- We will contact you back when mail orders will be taken again.
We hope you will understand.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you very much for your interest.

+10000 for Viccel socks, they're great!!
I've got a few of their things, but overall I prefer Uniqlo for clothes. Uniqlo's basics such as t-shirts, colourful cotton socks, underpants, polo shirts and jeans are great and they just happen to fit me well. Unfortunately, they don't ship overseas so I have to wait until I'm in Japan to pick up another batch of Uniqlo goodness...
Mooning around the 3rd floor at Bourke St DJs today. Saw a nice Paul Smith London suit in a grey POW check for about $350-400. A 42L but a slm cut, so could suit a 40L.
Good prices to be had on some Canali suits - prices now almost down to Azzaro's regular Canali prices.
Tempted by a couple of Thomas Pink shirts around $60, but resisted. Since when are these made in Vietnam?
Actually found a nice Heringbone suit in my size, but they'd lost the pants. Sheesh.
Is a dinner suit a must? Don't own one at the moment and it is way down the bottom of my list of things to buy, right below the FU purple velvet tassel loafers.
And as I have mentioned couple of days ago, DJs are in so much strife some of their stuff are becoming worth a look now.
