Enjoyed seeing you and your goods, Kent. The squares, as aways, were my faves, but the swimsuit, ties, links, watches, jackets, and shoes were a treat to see too. The highlights for me were the blue on blue seersucker and how nicely your own loafers had aged. And thanks for the millefleur square! Hope to make it tomorrow too, but we'll see what the baby's schedules like.
Very nice. I think I'll stop by tonight around 6 pm.
Thank you for a great thread, DW and others. I've added it to the Technical Tutorials list.
They sent me a list of measurements to take. The fit is really excellent.Is the pic huge? On my laptop it's about 3.5x5". The soles are stiff, like an English shoe. I think they were hand welted. More below.Here's a shot of the shoesAnd their soles. Not very decorative, but certainly carefully done.You'll note the closed channel construction above. Here's a shot of the top of the welt, with much finer stitching and closer cropping than the Florsheims also...
Nice that they make kevlar jeans too.
Sounds good, OTC. The S8 Freshair that we got also comes w/ a Hepa and a bunch of extra attachments. But if you have pets you might need the turbo or the electric brush. Of course you could get the Freshair and then get an aftermarket turbo.
He made mine w/ a more moderate taper and longer hem. I enjoy them very much and would have gone to see him if I didn't have an Arnis/FMA tournament this weekend, my first. I'm just trying not to die!
Thanks for the help guys, particularly P-K-L and Grammaton Cleric.
Fit's excellent, B. Forgot to mention that. (Ninja edited a few other deets in my first post too). I sent in a bunch of measurements and they seem to have been followed well. Loafers are tough to fit well, particularly on the first shoe. Many bespoke shoemakers won't make a loafer for a first shoe, if ever. And these fit very well based on just a couple hours wear in the house. Like everyone, my feet aren't perfectly symmetrical. My right is a bit shorter and wider...
Shoes arrived today. Here they are w/ a pair of heavy, selvedge, hemp/cotton jeans by Levis that I've been breaking in slowly: The outer suede and deerskin lining are very nice. Construction's well done. Heel and sole are a bit too thick for my taste and some of the curves could use some refinement. But overall very impressive. I'll post more soon.
