Naval shoe by The Generic Man in cognac saddle leather. Picked these up new and wore them over the summer, but just don't have room in my closet for them. Plenty of life still in them. Includes original box  and travel bag.   Made in Portugal Full grain leather upper Leather lining Leather sole with rubber toppy and partial rubber heel Size EU 42  and tagged US 9.5, but I would call them a size 9 because I normally wear a size 9.   Price...
  Don't have one on me right now to measure but the last time I checked I believe they're 2.5 inches, maybe 2.75. They can vary though.
  I didn't ask Andreas to alter it, I only asked him what was causing the canvas rippling. 
Thank you, live and learn I suppose. I'll keep that in mind next time.
Update on my blazer, having the waist let out seems to have fixed the hourglass problem. Silhouette is still not exactly great and armholes are very low, but I don't think anything else can be done at this point. They could not fix the chest rippling and seemed to be confused about it, thought it might be a pressing issue.   I took it to Andreas Gorges who does my alterations for his opinion. He says it's because the fabric is being stretched too tightly over the...
Where are you guys finding RLBL suits for $800? I never see their basics (solids or pinstripes) on sale.
Unlined leather gloves from Dents. The same as the ones worn by Daniel Craig in Skyfall:   http://www.dents.co.uk/products/786/James-Bond---Skyfall-Leather-Gloves.asp#n   These are size Medium and unfortunately don't fit me. Brand new, never worn outside but I snipped the tags and unfortunately can't return them.   See Dent's sizing page for sizing info: http://www.dents.co.uk/pages/Sizing.asp   Shipping included in price if within CONUS.
I think they just went overboard on the waist suppression trying to make it slim. I have a Thom Browne blazer that's shorter, slimmer, and with a higher button stance that doesn't create an hourglass silhouette, so I don't think I asked them to create something impoosible, although in hindsight it's probably too far away from their house cut to expect good results. I get it back next week so hopefully they were able to resolve the issue...
  Doesn't usually get colder than 50 F in San Francisco. Just having something to protect my hands from wind chill is all I need, and I don't like how bulky lined gloves feel on my hands.
Apparently this Black Fleece scarf I was looking at was recalled. Gucci went after them for infringement, so these scarves and a bunch of accessories had to be recalled and I guess they're not allowed to sell them. In cases like this, what happens to the scarves? Do they get burned? Sealed in a vault somewhere? Because I'd still kind of like one.
