Shell Cordovan. eBay. $20.
I'm 35 pounds thinner and going through all the suits I haven't worn since letting myself go. Most calls are obvious but one particular suit vexes me. It's an Adriano and Sons, solid charcoal, pretty sure it was made by Caruso circa 2008. So a decent suit, all in. The jacket fits. The pants, though, have two problems. First, they're a little baggy in the thigh and calf. I figure a tailor can recut and I won't be left with "good as new" but for the money maybe not too bad....
Folks, when was the last time The Shoe Mart got a custom shell? I've spent thousands there, and I've been "on the list" (credit card and all) for a couple of years. Last time I asked, I didn't really get a straight answer. Also, I stopped getting mail on irregulars. Trying to figure out whether they deserve any more of my business. Thanks.
933 pages in this thread. I tried, but it seems I cannot find answers that surely exist herein. I'm cleaning out my closet. Used stuff, good shape mostly. 1. Best (and cheapest) way to pack/fold/ship a single shirt? 2. Suggested pricing strategy for: a. Mall-type (J.Crew, mostly) shirts? b. Mid-luxury shirts (Canal, Borrelli)? Thanks.
I appear to have missed the corporate sale. Unfortunately I need refresh my non-iron collection. They're $92 now, with 30% off if you buy four. Which really is a decent deal. Can anyone guesstimate for me the savings I forgo by not waiting for the semiannual sale?
I am bumping this very old thread. He is rather local to me and would be convenient, but it's difficult to take a 3-4 kilobuck flyer on an unknown quantity on the wrong side of 70. Anyone?
Where do you have these listed?
Does anyone want to recommend for me a good off the rack suit line for a man with a wide back and (proportionally) narrow shoulders? (If that's not unfortunate enough, also I am sort of ugly.)
I would call them "very deep scuffs" rather than cracks. They don't go all the way through. (edit: I would agree that nothing much can be done for them.)And Mister Planner, thank you for picking up the reference. Regarding the soles, you can see the cork in an area a little bit smaller than a dime.Honestly when you see the shoes up close, they're not (in my view) "completely trashed" but they are very, very tired-- a condition exacerbated by my procrastination in sending...
A bit shabby I admit. But I wore those shoes constantly. They fit *perfectly*.
