Thanks! So even though last 81 is a smarter city last, you think it is sufficiently roomier than the 888 to choose 1/2 size smaller than your size in the 888? English made shoes that fit for me: Edward Green last 888 size 7.5 F balmoral size 8 E blutcher last 606 size 8 blutcher John Lobb last 8000 7 EE blutcher Based on this Richard recommeded 7.5. Bic
I am still trying to confirm sizing with Richard. Does anyone know about the 81 last? I am a UK 7・5 F in Edward Green. Bic
I would like to join the cipresso order. Bic
I may be mistaken, but I believe that your shoes might be cordovan colored calf, not shell cordovan. Bic
I believe taps work better than nails.If your question is whether or not you should remove the nails and have toe plates applied onto new shoes, I would say "no." When I have been in your position I have waited until the next resole, then have had metal taps installed.Bic
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
