I would say that after a certain price point and/or level of quality of the knife, the issue become a moot point. I been using a Dexter Russell chinese cleaver for as long as I can remember. I use it for almost all my cutting and chopping needs. Recently I purchased some fantastic natural waterstones on ebay and have made this knife razor sharp. You can find the stainless steel version for about $30 bucks. I also been using a cheap chef's knife that probably cost less...
Hey everyone, I am commissioning an overcoat soon. While I have a good idea what I want in regards to the overcoat, I am also having a removable vest lining made for it as well. I would like some ideas on the design of the vest along with options on how to attach the vest to the overcoat. I think it would be interesting if the vest could be worn by itself as well. Please provide me some great opinons. Thanks everyone!

I just saw Schwarzenegger in a suit on the Jay Leno show last night. He sure didn't look like a pear! Exactly, shoulder padding will do the guy a lot of justice along with a slighter higher collar for the guy along with a bit more supression at the waist,...

A higher shoulder and higher collar(because his neck is pretty long relative to the his body) would...

You all say that I have low shoulders, but I like to think of it as developed traps, natch. I already asked Patrick to open up the quarters on my next jacket. I also am inclined to add at least 1/4" to the length, since that was...
My two cents: The suit has a downward look to it. The shoulders are too sloped which throws off the balance of the suit. I recommend a bit of padding but in a very slight pagoda style with maybe a bit of roping or maybe not. I would open up the quarters for many reasons but the button stance I think requires an open quarter. I think the flaring of the skirt also makes your shoulder appear small. It should be narrowed down. I think the closed quarters make the suit...
What would be the minimal amount of fabric I need for for a knee length overcoat?
The toe is SO BIG. Wingtips, medallion, double monk, pebble grain...... that's too much.
