   Maybe CD is just interested in Greek mythology...
 I get G.Inglese made-to-order via Deer Style in Brisbane:   I'm afraid that I'm not sure about P.Johnson, Suit Shop and Oscar Hunt.  Obviously, the two most important things are features and fit, with hand-work coming a distant third. Certainly, it's very nice to have hand-stitched details on shirts, but ultimately it's not an important part of the shirt, as opposed to making sure that it fits well and that it has the collar/placket/cuffs/buttons and so on that you want. 
 Really lovely shoes, but I've got to say that the absurd prices that Alden enthusiasts are paying for Alden shell shoes nowadays rather reminds me of the Dutch tulip mania in the 1630s.
 It was actually quite an interesting case and it resulted in some intense "water cooler" discussions at my work (as I work in the legal section of a Commonwealth government department, albeit not one that was involved in the above case in any way). I always thought that she was pushing a very large barrow of rocks up a very steep hill with her claim, for precisely the reason that you stated above - in essence, she brought in the injury upon herself and it was surprising...
Has anyone here dealt with Alex Pig Timepieces, based in HK?   He sells on Chrono24, as well as from his own website, and he has a lot of very nice-looking watches, including a large collection of second-hand Rolex watches for sale.   Some of the prices appear to be excellent, particularly for some of the Datejust models (considerably below below what I would have thought), whereas prices for some other pieces (such as Pepsi-bezel GMT IIs) appear to be too high (at...
 It's very frustrating, as the Japanese online store for the parent company ("Maker's Shirts") appears to have quite a few university stripe OCBD shirts in stock:Blue-and-white: http://shop.shirt.co.jp/item/UE9020_24/ Yellow-and-white: http://shop.shirt.co.jp/item/OC0339_51/ Orange-and-white: http://shop.shirt.co.jp/item/PE0065_54/ Green-and-white (I'd love this one): http://shop.shirt.co.jp/item/UC9029_45/ Faded red-and-white (I'd love this one,...
 I know that you can request that your username be changed, although I also remember that some people who requested name changes didn't get exactly the names that they wanted! Anyway, trying sending a PM to @LA Guy as he's the head honcho.
 Yes, I take a UK9 in both. As someone else mentioned, Rain-lasted shoes come in EE width as standard. The toe-box on the Detroit last has more room than the Rain last. I find both to be very comfortable but the Detroit last is a bit roomier overall than the Rain.
 Given the tightness around the ball of your foot/toes and given the great width between the quarters, where the shoes lace up, I'd say that this particular last is not the best for you, as it just does not seem to fit well. If you get your regular size, it's going to look overly tight and the lacing will look awkward. If you size up, you get looseness at the heel. If it were me, I'd accept that the last doesn't suit your foot and try a pair of chukka boots on the a...
  It looks nice in the photo but in real life I think that it's a couple of inches too short. Also, it's got working cuff buttons, which is fine if the sleeves need minimal shortening, but is a royal pain in the backside otherwise.
