With the yen dollar exchange rate, the Seiko SARD007 is a smidge over the $1,000 mark. What do people think of it? http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=seiko+sard007&qpvt=seiko+sard007&qpvt=seiko+sard007&FORM=IGRE The SARX027 has a simpler face: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=seiko%20%20SARX027&qs=n&form=QBIDMH&pq=seiko%20sarx027&sc=0-0&sp=-1&sk= Bic
Thank you for the responses. I live in Japan, and will have this made to measure place make the suit. It will be my first experience with this place. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of patch pockets. I think I will probably go with something like the attached.   Bic
I am looking at ordering a tan herringbone summer suit in a fabric like this: http://www.styleforum.net/t/450049/size-46r-nwt-2200-canali-suit-tan-herringbone-solaro-esque-with-full-canvas-construction-100-cotton Any thoughts on single, double, patch pockets, etc? Men's Ex has some snaps that are peak lapel single breasted, but I don't think that I am that stylish. Bic
Thank you for the comments. I saw that pair at the Regal bespoke salon in Tokyo, and have had it on my mind ever since. I had thought that the broguing on the apron was a blind brogue. Bic
I am thinking of getting asking Maftei to make a version of these in dark brown crust leather . I like the broguing along the lake, but am not sure of the broguing around the rest. Maybe will have just a heel cup. Any thoughts on a version of this with broguing around the lake would look best? Bic
You might get more replies if you are more specific on accommodation. What is your budget? Are you talking youth hostal, Japanese or western hotel? Bic
I just looked through the Nakano Broadway and Nakano Sun Mall webpages. I didn't see any made to measure places that I recognize. Aoki may offer made to measure, but I would be surprised. For under JPY40,000, you are probably looking at F-One, Big Vision, or Yuzawaya. The fourth and ninth posts in this thread describe MTM options in Tokyo generally. http://www.styleforum.net/t/89738/bespoke-tailoring-in-tokyo Bic
F., Where in Japan do you live? If you are set on ordering online, there is no reason to limit yourself to Japanese makers. Unless your Japanese is very good, you probably would be better with one of the online shops that work in English. If you are interested in Japanese brick and mortar, post number 9 here is a good place to start: http://www.styleforum.net/t/89738/bespoke-tailoring-in-tokyo Bic
I tend to think that if you really want a matching belt, then probably only one by John Lobb will do. Other musuem calf belts will be similar in finish and color, but not the same as the leather on the John Lobb shoes. I also agree that there are plenty of belts out there that would go well with Edward Green's dark oak, Crockett & Jones' dark brown antique calf, John Lobb's dark brown museum calf, or similar shades by other shoe makers.
