I know far less about leather than you. But like you, my experience of bookbinder leather is good. I think the leather they use is quite good: Church's have long stood by their view that the polished finish has positive benefits - i.e. its appearance, and the fact that it requires little elbow grease to maintain. Personally, I prefer calf. But there's nothing inherently wrong with corrected grain as Church's do it. That maker is seriously under-appreciated on this forum,...
Look into chambray.
I still don't think this is a suitable place to mention it. I can see why you would disagree, but I also don't think this is a suitable arena to debate that fraught subject. Let's both drop it.
Wow. OK, let's just leave it at that.
I don't know what is behind this post but I cannot think of anything which would stop it from being very ill-judged.
People pay outrageous prices for used Berluti. Very silly, especially given the abundance of (Italian) shoes along the same lines that are cheaper, more stylish and better-made.
Awesome John G Hardy duffel coat. I'd buy in a flash if it was in my size.
Varies. I've had two pairs of NOS Church's for Brooks. One pair similar to today's run-of-the-mill Church's Custom Grade (i.e. fine, on a par with C&J benchgrade IMO); the other pair, just absolutely fantastic.And yes, they will be pre-Prada. Not really a watershed, quality-wise.
Looks great, well done. The collar looks a bit loose in the second to last and last photos.
God that is a fantastic suit.
