    Some updates - 2 new shoulder styles (one unpadded, the other pagoda-esque), the wide notch lapel is finally in the house, and a softer canvas as well for some styles.

    Interesting, although I think that the Herringbone and Milano (DJs) suede mocs look better, actually.

    Nice jacket there. I was going to do something similar last year.

    Can you post some photographs of the inside?

    I haven't seen details on a half / quarter-lined PJ coat yet.

    Commissioned a blazer suit a few weeks ago:

    French Navy worsted from Dugdale Bros; soft shoulder; 3 patch pockets; mid brown horn buttons; half-lined; hand-finished.

    Good as a casual suit and because of the texture, the suit jacket can be worn as a navy odd jacket.

    Probably won't be here till mid-March; will try to keep everyone posted...

    PJ's half/quarter lining is pretty industry standard i.e. half-lined = lining down the fronts, half lining down the back, and quarter lined is 'buggy lined' - self-lined down the fronts and lining just at the shoulders down the back.

    I'm interested in this - anyone have pictures of the new shoulder styles or fit commentary?

    Are the softer canvas styles also softer in feel through the shoulder?

    Doubtful, it's all so new that all PJ could do was show me photos on his iPhone taken in the factory where they are made.

    I imagine it would take some weeks/months for examples purchased by early adopters or PJ/TR to arrive in AU.

    Cool, thanks man. Understandably will take time before we see how it looks in real life.

    Did you get anything commissioned with wider lapels, the softer shoulders or softer canvas? I'm going to make time to see TR soon to get a winter jacket made up.

    I think their wider notch Lapels are much better than the original lapels, and the new soft shoulders are really soft with no padding.

    Hi folks,
    This is my first post to SF. I'm a Sydneysider, and a few months ago had my first MTM suit done by P Johnson Tailors. I was measured and fit by Patrick at the atelier's shop in Paddo.
    My opinion is probably not worth much as I consider myself still to be a n00b, but FWIW, I wrote up a post of the experience with a few photos on my Tumblr. If interested, you can find it here.
    Please don't take this as a feeble attempt to drive traffic to my lame-arse blog. It's just that some seem to want a bit more info on P Johnson Tailors, and those might find some value in it.
    I'm going back in June for another suit, more CBD this time, probably in mid-charcoal worsted, with a bit more "English" to the cut.
    Thanks and respect,
    SG

    This is kind of a weird question, but do you think they would take a commission completely based on measurements? The combination of falling in love with Johnson's work, and living in the northern hemisphere isn't exactly the best - at least for a student in his 20's.

    Probably not likely but can't hurt to ask.

    I've already floated this question to them with little luck, they are very particular on the fitting process which I absolutely respect. Fortunately they are hoping to expand on a RTW line soon so maybe jackets/trousers will become available online...

    Thanks guys. Wasn't really hoping for a positive here, but as you say, a RTW line could be on the rise, the opening of an e-commerce really heightened my expectations.
