    Thanks for sharing. You're right of course in that it's all in the eye of the beholder. Especially the top one, and it could be the camera angle, but I quite like the roping, lapel and open quarters (not sure that that is Chan, although it doesn't really matter). Gets you in the direction of Liverano, if you will.

    FWIW, I also think your latest PJ pinstripe commission came out quite well (and better than previously).

    Not wanting to hijack the thread, but just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with Germanicos (www.tailor.com.au)? They appear to offer a very similar service in that they have the suit cut in Europe, and then any additional adjustments are completed in Australia. How does this compare with P Johnson?

    Any updates on this? Looking forward it seeing it. I have just commissioned a blazer from Tom here in Melbourne. 1 day down, 6 weeks and 6 days waiting time to go. :brick:

    Ah, sorry, Tom delivered it about three weeks ago now. It’s going to be hard to ever go back to RTW.


    I just got notice that the second pair of pants are ready, which I will probably pick up next week and at the same time commission a second three piece suit – this time a mid-ish grey (go tax return!).

    Popped in today to see Tom, pick up my second pair of pants for the navy suit and order my second commission (another three piece in a mid-light grey fresco from Dougdale and Bros).

    Bad news is that it sounds like prices are about to go up in response to wool prices - didn't ask how much.

    Just picked up my 'navy' Loro Piana from Tom this afternoon and it's come out beautifully. Small changes we made from the first suit have been incorporated flawlessly and everything else has stayed exactly the same. Very pleased :)

    Wasn't intending on posting, with PG awesomeness intimidating the f@ck out of me, but Sunday afternoon procrastination got the better.

    Here is my P Johnson navy three piece. It's in shade lighter then French navy. I have worn it a few times now, both with and without the waistcoat, and have gotten far more complements then anything else I have ever put on before - so something must be right with it. After my first fitting we had to move the sleeves down, but looking at this pic, it could do with a cm or so more. Overall I am really happy with it. Happy to hear of any critique that I can include in any future orders.

    As mentioned earlier, I have a solid mid grey on order with the same dimensions (I think we added 0.5cm to the chest) - three piece again for versatility. After that, I think a POW check is in order...

    Looks good, congrats and thanks for posting. Agree the sleeves could be a little longer.

    Looks good Check, and yes I also concur on the sleeves, although it's within the personal preference realm I think. I'm inspired to try to get around to posting shots of mine if I can get anything decent out of a camera.
    And is that the official SF Oz members burgundy knit tie?? :)

    Steezy, Check!

    Very steezy; very nice.

    Concur with the others on the sleeves, but what the heck... it's a personal thing.

    Wear it in good health!

    Definitely lengthen the sleeves as far as they'll go. Too much shirt cuff on display.

    The lower angle from which the shot is taken makes it a little hard to judge. My honest opinion is that the buttoning point looks high. But it may be the angle playing tricks.

    Good on you for posting pictures.

    Thanks for the nice words... also here is a crappy blackberry photo (with added mirror grit) of the suit as I wore it today sans waistcoat:


    [​IMG]

    Somebody commented on the button stance. This was a bit of detail where I spent a bit of time going over with Tom. In the end we decided on the point based on my natural waist and overall balance of the jacket. I think that it looks higher when worn with the waistcoat.

    Nice suit checky. And it looks good on you.

    [ I was going to say "You'll grow into it" but I thought better of it]

    To my eye the burgundy tie goes better with the 2 piece and the darker tie goes better with the buttoned up look of the 3 piece. With a 3piece it's nice to keep the flow of the similar colour all the way through rather than contrast with the tie.Similar with shoes, dark or black keeps that encased body look as I see it and emphasizes the 3 piece top to toe flow.
