I have the same question and would love your input on sizing. I have a 40in chest with a 18in shoulder. With a height of 168cm.My custom shirts are around 43-44in in the chest. Thats why i am torn between a size S & M.
Just wondering, when one makes a 1:1 appointment with makers (be it shoes and bags etc), do they already expect you to place an order or is it ok to check out their work and if comfortable place an order?
Will the maker be offended?
My JL Arima boat shoes arrived just now.
1st JL shoe and the leather is ohhhh so soft !!!
Best part is, i could not find any flaw on both shoes (with my untrained eyes) that would indicate these are a pair of seconds/rejects.
Also, no "R/S" stamp inside the shoe.
The shoe is snug now....heel is a tad low....
Does the shoe of these leather expand much?
It's already so smooth n soft now.
Thanks guys, glad to hear and also bit bout their process.
Its been years years since i bought a pair of shows online cause i haven't had much luck in sizing.
Taking a gamble on these boat shoes cause of the attractive pricing.
Shipping to Asia cost 1/4 of the price of the shoe.......
BTW just wanted to confirm, can the boat shoes be resoled?
