    It's certainly a nice looking store, that's for sure.

    welcome back PG
    - thanks, but I never left
    Just went into the new Harrolds today for the first time. I was talking to a charming Italian guy, Simone, who told me they have 9 rooms in the new premises on Pitt St Mall. He offered me a coffee and it was one of the best I have drunk in years. I may be mistaken but I reckon there had to be at least AUD1 million in stock sitting in the rooms. The new premises is like 10X bigger than the old.

    I like the PJ look, and some of the details are fun, but it is best suited for a skinny dude. I also don't like them on PG...

    I don't know if I've confirmed or negated your opinion here, but I am a shade under 6 foot tall, and vary between 98 and 102 kilos - 215 to 220 pounds for the Americans. I'm sure it would all look better if I was 20 kilos lighter, but such is life. My wife is too good a cook.

    This is much more important than any clothing related matter.

    When I went in it looked like they had maybe $10k worth of stock. But they were asking $1m.....

    ThinkDerm,
    I'm about a 44 chest and waist and a 42 shoulder, but dropped right and pitched forward. OTR always looks wrong on me, so to get even this close with MTM is fantastic for me.

    LOL...they must be turning over some merchandise to pay Westfield rents on a large apartment sized store.

    Went in for my final adjustment yesterday (P.Johnson tailors that is :p) To sum up, suit is fantastic, even better than I expected, yes I'm a skinny young guy, however both Patrick and Ethan knew exactly what I wanted. Patrick's style and my style seem to be directly correlated. That said I will be definitely going back and ordering more suits and shirts! Could not recommend P.Johnson anymore P.s good to see you Ethan [​IMG]
