    Bitchin', thanks. I suspected they might be Williams, but (as you point out) I don't always think of storm welts on their boots. I like the rounded toe more than their squared-off ones.

    Do it but you need to wait for the right suit maker. My problem was that there was not anyone in Australia a few years ago apart from a few ancient and dreary and horribly expensive tailors in Sydney. I wasted so much money on Attolini, Kiton, Borrelli, etc but I really had no other option.
    Then Patrick Johnson, a young and energetic Australian returned from London to begin his MTM business which has expanded to a series of different lines and prices made in places accordingly...some in China, others in Italiy by La Vera.
    They opened a branch in Melbourne and I went mad with all the Loro Pianas, Aristons etc and from my very first jacket, the only alteration I had ever needed was 1 cm let out at the waist. Three years later I remain the same..that's how good their process is.
    They will be open in New York, LA and Singapore shortly so they are doing okay...and deservedly so.

    With PJ, Suit Shop and Oscar Hunt around a bloke has at least some chance of getting a suit, jacket or pants with a decent fit at different price points.

    No one has posted a fit photo taken in a car for awhile. Best I could do today.

    If they'd opened earlier I would have been richer and looked a lot smarter.

    You've hit them for six Mr Six. (Aussies and Brits will get this, Yanks maybe not).

    Sure. It's the equivalent of a home run, hitting the ball from the bowler over the boundary line for six runs.

    I just love the mix of colours Mr Six has, I love green with blue and the PS is superb with the whole lot.

    Blue and green, what a fallacy that they should never be seen.
