You can find some nice shoes for that amount either during sales time or buying them seconds. I saw some Church's for that money. Also AE should cost that. Maybe, if you're lucky, you can find other nice options from other brands like Carmina, C&J, Alden... But... Maybe what you have been offered is a very good deal (never heard of the brand though)
I say it doesn't look cheap or bad at all, but it's too tight for sure on the chest. The shoulders look right, so I guess your tailor just made that up as an excuse.
Since this thread is turning into an interesting conversation about pens, I'll drop my 2 cents. For the last months I'm using daily a Caran d'Ache fountain pen. Smooth and perfect ink flow. Highly recommended.

I'd go for a reasonably priced one, nothing too awesome but something classic and functional. Half of the year I live in a city where it rains on average 2 out of 3 days during the entire year. Not kidding! So I've used plenty of them. During the last years I bought two nice umbrellas (at the beginning, when I arrived to the city, until I learned my lesson). The first one: lost. The second one disintegrated just few days after I bought it, because a extraordinary wind...
Hi! Sorry to take back this thread from the underworld but I have a quick question about shoe size, specifically for a last nr. 173. I normally wear a UK 7 E size (i.e. Tricker's). I saw a nice deal on Church's but the size is a UK 7 G. Is that a huge difference in fit? Would it still be comfortable to wear?

Hi guys! I was checking the new Carmina website and I saw that some of the models are offered in both suede calf or vegano leather. I don't know what this is, so checked in Wikipedia and it says it's a type of artificial leather. So... If I get it right, it's actually a FAKE leather or in other words, it's NOT leather. Did I get it right? Is this inferior quality than actual leather? What's the use? Does it even worth it to spend hundreds of euros in a pair of shoes...
