Grammaton Cleric, thank you for your information and I look forward to learning more about how to acquire older LL/Lovat cloths (as I could use making a spare trousers on a couple of cloths) Fox does sell some 18oz flannels, but not in the combo of patterns and colors offered in the LL book, and not for double or 2.5 the price. Off Fox's web site, the single color 18oz/540gram Fox Flannels go for 92 pounds compared to 120 pounds for the LL specials. A 28 pound...
Yes NAMOR, the Vass is in the middle. G&G on the left and Clifford Roberts on the right. But I like Vass' V shaped design better as it is less pronounced than the others
Since I took this picture a while back...I can answer the followingIn US, I wear US 12D (11.5E UK) for the TG73 and find it roomy and comfortable and wear the U last in euro size 46 (but it is narrower than the TG73)
Clifford Roberts used my newer Springline bespoke last. Fit is excellent as I found my previous last did not fit as well on this slip on design.
I made the exact same shoe design in Deco black last year...but using the TG73 last...and have found them to be the most comfortable non-bespoke shoes that I own. Good choice S.S.
Lost plenty of weight lately...so the jacket and vest came out huge...which will be fixed before the final fitting.
Manton...as to lightweight whipcords: Smith Woolens has 11oz stuff (a gorgeous dark chocolate brown also) Holland and Sherry has 10oz stuff only, then the same book has 12oz gabardine and then 13oz cavalry twill. Some nice blues and grey/blues in this book Sadly HE Box no longer has any and Dugdale has 17oz stuff (out of your league) Salvatore Ambrosi has a Carlo Barbera book with light weight whipcords in many color (perhaps Jodek of Beverly Hills imports them?)
I am interested in this 16oz Breanish Tweed...but how is it different from the LL Best of Both Tweed made up years ago (besides the red windowpane)? If I ordinarily order 2.5 meters for my jackets...do I order the same amount...or more?
Slewfoot...just send a buzz to HE Box...they sent me out a sample of this exact cloth a few years ago I thought it was Melton wool...but instead was Cavalry Twill (I was looking for a warm cloth for a bespoke Navy Peacoat) I found this Cavalry twill cloth to be too rough for what I desired...and too dark
For my feet, its the Deco last which has the narrower toe box area compared to the GG06/DG70/MH71/TG73 (these four have the same toe box room)The design of the shoe ALSO contributes to the overall room throughout the shoe and toe box...which might explain why others report a better fit in a 1/2 size larger TG73 lasted shoe compared to a shoe with the MH71 or GG06.For example, I have the new faux laced balmoral lazyman in the TG73 in 11.5...yet have another GG lazyman shoe...
