    What's so killer about tchoy's dress sense is that everything is so understated. Nothing stands out, everything meshes with everything else, and of course the clothes fit perfectly.

    I wish I could pull this off but (a) I'm still a menswear noob and (b) it's just not my personality. I'm a dandy at heart, a bit of a show-off. That has its advantages: I'm a people person, a good salesman, a performer. I never suffer from stage-fright. I can extemporise a speech for any occasion and get laughs and get my meaning across.

    I feel that clothes should (to some extent) mirror their wearers' personalities. So I will continue to work on my own style, which will never be like tchoy's, although every time I see one of his fits I learn something.

    Very true. TC has popped in to the Aussie thread from time to time to advise of a visiting tailor or offer an insight or two. Always helpful and precise in his comments.

    Coxy, your journey is just as engaging mate.

    Hmmm. I have a lot of unstructured jackets too and they don't appear sack-like. OK never mind...

    Very nice fits guys.

    Is it just me or does it feel like the Aussies have stolen the mantle from the Scandinavians of late? @pingson and @Anden need to help @EFV maintain the vanguard.

    Thank you


    Great seeing you at lunch. Looking forward to your HK visit.


    Thank you. I slouch when I sit.


    Perhaps you should.


    Long time no see. Catch you in Shanghai?

    There are a few other Scandinavian posters who are really good, but they post way to seldom. I'm hoping @pingson and @Anden are back soon though, they are such great posters!

    Kind words guys. I'll be back at work on Monday. Been with the family since June. Got a new suit during the summer. And some shoes. And flannels. See you soon! @SeaJen @EFV

    It will be a little while before I am back so @EFV you have to hold down the fort alone for another while, sorry. I'm on parental leave for few weeks and then will go to China for two weeks in the end of September on a business trip. Plan to be back more regularly in October (but will still only work part -time, so we'll see how many pics I have time to snap)
