I heard a vicious rumor that you won't reorder the moleskin cloth.
I hope thus isn't true as I really really want rivet chinos in brown moleskin to go with grey and navy I already have.
If this is truer, any suggestion where to get brown moleskin casual trousers??
Moulded Shoe in NYC carries a good collection of Alden Modified Lasts in EEE. I have bought four Alden ML in 9.5 EEE to date and tried on each one in the store before buying.
Given my challenges getting shoes to fit, I would be very very reticent about paying for a non-returnable MTO shoe without trying it on first.....
Wow - you know the fittings well on the Alden lasts. I wear a 9.5EEE in the Modified Last. I havent put much effort into other Alden lasts - they Moulded Shoe folks told me the other lasts wont fit well and I tend to trust their judgment. Any guidance on looking at other Lasts?
Anyone have experience with the double breasted version? I am thinking of getting one - hopefully in navy or tan.
I got the Moscow last winter in black herringbone and it is both stylish and warm. The collar lining is so warm you dont really need a scarf, except for style of course!
I suggest sizing upp!
I wound up buying a Valstar navy blue rain jacket:
This is supposed to breathe a bit but havent had the chance to really see. But it looks very nice as the cotton/linen blend give a great texture.
Ventile coat makers I know of include
Private Wite VC - my favorite. Cinnamon trench in particular.
Luxire - someone already mentioned them
Mactinish - has done Ventile versions in the past
Thanks for a very interesting discussion.
I have been looking into Ventile cloth as some folks have highlighted. Private White VC makes some beautiful stuff.
Its a shame Event hasnt been used (yet) in good mens' stuff.
