    Wanted to start a thread as a reference for all shirting and accessorising needs in Sydney. I'll start off with what I think might be the right places in terms of good quality:

    David Jones
    Casa Adamo - Bespoke suits, ties and shirts (can anyone comment on the quality of the Stefano Ricci ties?)
    Charles Nakhle - shirts
    Harrolds - a bit overpriced to say the least, but some good ties and cufflinks
    JH Cutler - Bespoke suits, ties and shirts

    Thats all I can think of at the moment. Would anyone else care to add to the list or comment on the aforementioned places?

    Great idea, I'm putting together a list of tailors/designer brands and their contact details in Sydney. These are mainly sourced from Google, The Yellowpages, SF and AAAC. Obvious I have *not* tried all of their products/services: http://www.marcs.com.au/Marcs-Home.html Marcs Comment: quality shirts, I own one of their shirts, took it to Charles for alteration and Charles commented positively on the quality of the fabric. That's one thing I like about Charles, he is never hesitant to compliment his competitors. http://www.henrybucks.com.au/ Henry Bucks Comment: Word On The Street is they are a bunch of snobs. http://nakhleshirtmakers.com.au/ Charles Nakle Shop 1A/69 Phillip street Parammatta, NSW 2150 (02) 9633 4696 Comment: Top quality bespoke shirts start from $200, extra $10 for MOP buttons. A gentleman to deal with. http://www.claudesebastian.com.au/ CLAUDE SEBASTIAN MENSWEAR 14 Martin Place (cnr of Pitt street and Martin Place) (02) 92336938 Comment: They only have PRL, no black/purple label. Claims to be the only store that carries Valentino in Sydney, also does MTM for Dormeuil. Spoke to their salesperson Arnaud Maillot, nice bloke. http://www.harrolds.com.au/ Sydney Boutique Store 39 Martin Place Sydney, NSW 2000 (02) 9239 0177 http://www.herringbone.com.au/ Herringbone Shop 25, Ground Floor QVB Building George St Sydney, NSW (02) 9266 0500 Comment: quality shirts, menswear in general. don't personally own anything from them.

However I had to go back 3 times because on the first occasion he gave a polyester suit and the second time it was the wrong size. So you have to really check carefully when you go and buy something. There is also a tailor working on the same premises, his name is George. I've used him a few times for doing alteration work. To be frank, I wouldn't go back to him now that I've found Charles for my shirts and Hao for my pants. http://www.rmwilliams.com.au/home.asp R M Williams 389 George Street SYDNEY, NSW 2000 (02) 9262 2228 Comment: One of the best boot makers in the world. http://www.vicunabespoke.com/, http://www.cutlerbespoke.com.au/ John H Cutler Level 3, 61-63 Market Street, Sydney, NSW (02) 92613550 Comment: Good reputation, pricey, Saville Row trained according to Sator http://www.zinkandsons.com.au/ G.A.

    I'll give Shane Rochefort a plug as I think he deserves to be on this list: www.rochefort.com.au; shirts, ties, suits, cufflinks, but mostly for the hand-made neckwear.

    PG, thank you for your valuable input. Would you care to elaborate why you think CLAUDE SEBASTIAN MENSWEAR is fail? In addition to carrying Valentino, they also do Dormeuil MTM. They sell Hugo Boss but I think its more of a business decision than anything else, after all they are lots of people who think HG is the best you can buy.
