    Hey Jason, I hope you won't take offence but I'd like to call him Henry - seems like a name that a satorially aware wombat would have.

    Edit: I posted this without having seen The Ernesto's suggestion for the same name - how freaky is that?

    No no offence at all, in fact quite the opposite. Henry the wombat sounds pretty cool I think.

    I didn't see but have now. The world of Tumblr moves at quite a rapid rate these days. Thanks for mentioning it.

    Very nice. Have always been partial to the windowpanes...have several in the wardrobe. Only highlight worth bringing to your attention was that the jacket is a single vent!!! Not sure Id be ready to return to the single vent look, have adopted the double many years ago and dont wish to return. Will never return to the no vent jacket, loath them.

    Wanted to seek the learned input from those here in the know....

    Anyone know of tailors or labels doing these type of pockets on high end trousers, cotton or wool. Searched Incotex thinking they would but no luck there. Several other labels not doing them either. The only ones I could find who seem to be tailoring these types of pockets are Kiton which is way out of my range.

    Any suggestions welcomed as Im looking for a point of difference. Sick of all my usual tailored trousers.

    Since you asked...

    I'll take some nicer ones when they arrive in a better natural light/no flash etc. The blade, as you can tell has been flipped around so you can see the embroidery, its not backwards.

    Very well considering he is only 2cm high!

    Fabrics i chose (two bengal stripes) were $199. Fabrics range from $170 to $230ish i think.

    I think this would largely depend on the person working - perhaps the sample shirt i fitted was close enough (it wasnt actually a bad fit except the sleave length)

    Oh David Jones sale is somewhat ok for cheap stuff. $12.50 for DJ branded cuff links. $25 for milana ties even the very CBD navy with white dots. And Jimmy Choos on sale for about $350!!!!!!
    They are single swept back monks with straps like these Lobbs:

    Pity the last is taken from a pair of Doc Martens.
