Anybody?
Could some of you bespoke suit experts please enlighten me with some wisdom I recently paid a visit to a tailor here in Asia about getting a fully canvased 3 piece suit made. Whilst viewing the samples I was shown an Italian brand called Fratelli Tallia di Delfino (Super 130/140's) and I was quoted at around $950 USD. Is this a decent brand? high quality? I was then shown Zegna samples (Super 120) and then the price drastically doubled and it was only for a 2...
What's the best way to wash/clean a pair of Nudie Dry black coated Jeans? I've heard that washing them will ruin the leather optic illusion. Dry clean?

The leather feels quite thin and smooth to the touch, once you break it in, it obviously takes on more character. It fits the way you would expect...
I own the Fight Club jacket from Soul Revolver. The leather is indeed very thin and of average quality. On the other hand I believe Soul Revolver makes the exact same models in a heavy duty leather specifically for motorcycle riding (more expensive of course).

Pulling the trigger tonight on some shades. Still undecided though, since I can only afford 2 pairs and there are 4 in the running! Basically I want 1 pair of chrome and 1 brown/gold pair. Now this is where the problem comes in, I was originally going to buy the Rhodium Tom Fords and the Gold Corsairs (since I can get a great deal on a pair), but they're so similar I don't know if I can justify buying both. That's why I'm thinking of going for the Persol Steve McQueens...
