Drew, it would be good to post in this thread a bit more regularly and maybe give some updates to all people waiting for their jackets.

Hello gentlemen,    I just noticed that there is a sale of Caruso suits currently on the US Vente-Privee website priced around 600-700$ and thought it might be of interest to people on the forum.
I recently bought a pair of Sutor Mantelassi's from Vente Privee for around 140 pounds. I just received the shoes and have noticed that one has a slight defect, namely one of the eyelets on the left shoe is unevenly spaced (see picture below). Should I return them or should I just ignore it (tbh it doesn't bother me too much).    I'd appreciate it if someone could also tell me from which of SM's lines the shoes are as I am sure they are not of their higher lines....
Thanks tggibbs. Sorry for being impatient. You are correct that the pants were unhemmed and sleeves were too long. As regards the pictures I bounced a flash off the ceiling.

I recently bought a pair of John Lobbs, Woodcote model. I had topies put on the front parts of the soles right away as my office floor is very slippery. Since then I have only worn them very carefully two times and have today noticed a clicking/creeking sound coming from the heel of one of the shoes. Upon closer inspection I noticed that when I bend my foot the heel slightly separates from the most upper layer of the leather soles. I have contacted John Lobb directly but...
Hi there,   as most people on this forum I have been lurking around for quite a long time before really joining. I am starting to hate the forum, as it has already taken its toll on my bank account(even more so as I am still a student). Still, I am quite happy with the recent deals I found in Frankfurt where I reside. ( A pair of John Lobbs, Crockett and Jones and couple of Zegna suits).
