NWOB Alfred Sargent for Sid Mashburn tassel loafers 11D -- Low starting price
This sounds like a winner to me.
Sad to hear. I had hoped to get around to trying them out next year. However, consistency is something that I look for. I'm not (as) obsessive about details as most, but really strive to have a consistent product; regardless of whether that means each time is consistently better or, at least, consistently the same.
I have no direct experience with NSM (which, considering where I'm posting, is quite ridiculous). However, is it not possible to ensure that you have the same cutter-tailor team for your commissions? It may throw off scheduling a bit, but I assume it must be possible, especially if you're willing to travel to Italy. Unless the problem stems from turnover, in which case there is little you can do.
This. To my eye it looks like the rise either needs to be extended or the buttoning-point lowered. Since it's a casual suit I don't think it's that big of a deal, but something I noticed right away.
Nothing creepy about this, unless you're a Hooters waitress. Also, if you think that's bad, you should see his line of golf pants.
+1. This is especially frustrating when you live in an environment that is some combination of hot, humid and hell-hole smoggy 9 months out of the year. I would never be able to justify a heavy tweed rotation, leading me to assume I "run hotter" than forex or whnay.
It's likely impossible to know where the cloth comes from. I was hoping that there was a book out there that touted "wool/flax" that I could have a look at. But if it comes down to taster's choice on how you label what's in the fabric, then it's likely just a usual wool/linen blend.So I guess I'll ask if anyone knows of wool/linen blend puppytooth in an excru and grey. Something like this:
Fair enough. Guess it's back to square one.
