    The Meermin's arrived. I'm pretty happy with them at this stage. They were stiff as anything on the way to work but very comfortable on the way home. I'll give them a few more wear before looking at choosing another pair.

    Jason,

    The knit ties sound interesting and I look forward to seeing pics when they arrive.

    Could you give an idea of the width of the knit ties, by any chance?

    If you go there, also check their outlet store in the market. Normally there are Loake 1880s there in that price range.

    But then the plebs would be able to afford it and it wouldn't be as exclusive.

    i have a new suit just received from Iris tailor in Singapore that needs repressing. Not very impressed with how they packed it.

    blahman - did you try elite?

    any other melb recommendations. I'm working in abbotsford and keen to get this sorted tomorrow

    I think their prices are very reasonable considering the end product.

    Yep - its a P Johnson in a Dugdale worsted.


    I would have to agree with that statement. For me, there is a price point at which it makes sense to spend that extra bit above what you'd be paying on RTW for the custom fit, cloth, style and options. The price also imposes a certain degree of discipline for me to better plan (and save for) my wardrobe purchases rather then make impulse purchases that I too often regret.

    That said, I have not turned my back completely on RTW, but it has to tick the right boxes as far as fitting into my 'wardrobe plan' and at a price that is worth giving up the customisation options of MTM (eg the cotton khaki Herringbone suit I posted here).
