Classic dark grey flannel trouser bought from Huntsman and Sons shop on 11 Savile Row. 34 inch waist, 32 inch inside leg. Material is a rich heavy classic flannel in a dark grey (I would say the colour is between a mid and charcoal grey colour). They have been worn but fairly lightly. If you look at the pictures I have shown the area of the crotch which usually suffers fastest wear and there is no sign of the material being worn here (it's also as the material is thick...
Crockett and Jones Seymour 2 Double Monk Strap shoes (9.5UK) dark brown antique calf (rich chocolate brown colour) Built to Crockett and Jones handgrade top standard (high quality freudenberg leather, asymmetric last, bevelled sole, full sock liner). The shoes have been worn but not heavily as you can see from picture of shoe sole. I have include a pic of the back of the heel where you can see there is very little wear at all. This shoe looks beautiful in person,...
I have a Huntsman RTW sports jacket to sell as it no longer fits me after putting on weight. I bought it only 2 to 3 years ago from their shop in Savile Row and have perhaps worn it 10 times at the most.   The design is a blue glencheck pattern made up of three blue shades with a thin red overcheck running through it. Its made in super 120s wool, with a burgundy bemberg lining inside. Have a look at the picture below to see this better.    Style is classic huntsman 1...

thanks!   they are archetypal English take on the penny loafer .. nice shoes for anyone who wears a 9.5 UK.
Selling a pair of George Cleverley Benchgrade 'Bradley' penny loafers (9.5 UK). £250   Colour is Burgundy Antique Calf (its a very rich burgundy colour).   I am including within the above price the George Cleverley shoe trees which I bought on top of the shoes. I also have dust bags which came with them and the box (if you want it).     These are made by Crockett and Jones for GJ Cleverley to their 'handgrade' specifications which means they use a high quality...
Thanks for explaining this to me, the brand does reference the fact the Parisian 'elite' wore them, playing on the aristocratic associations. The fact teenagers develop social snobbery at such a young age is unfortunate, especially in modern France which is supposedly founded on egalitarian principles!    Which shoes brands do you believe are better if I may ask? I would agree that they are overpriced, although I would probably say that any Goodyear Welted shoe made in a...
Why the strong negative view GDL? Any specific reason? The Chasse/Demi-Chasse/Golf shoes carry a very French aesthetic on casual shoes I think, its very different to the English country aesthetic.   I'm quite tempted to invest (& that is the word at $2k) in a pair of the Chasse Hunt derby shoes. Its not a shoe I think would work with smart tailored clothes at all, instead I think jeans and a Tattersall shirt would best, perhaps with a loden coat to conjure up that...
Hi any recommendation for a Navy blue serge cloth from one of the English mills? I'm looking for something between 12-13 oz ideally.   Many thanks in advance
