I have a UK 9.5E on the DG70 last. I also have UK 9.5E on EG's 888, 808, 202 and 89 lasts. All of these fit very well. On the 89, I also have a UK 9E which I prefer - its a bit more snug. But the UK9.5 E is also fine. On the EG 82 last, I actually have a UK9.5D which fits like a glove after some breaking in. I have always wondered about going down a width on the 202, from E to D - I think it could be done, would fit better, and would probably make the silhouette less...
^^^ you know, I actually don't own the Dover. I have the Carter and the Halifax which are both Dover/ecton hybrids for rlpl. Personally, I like the three eyelets on those models because there's more room for the arch. The 89 last for the split toe Halifax is a bit more chiseled than the 202, but still pretty roomy. I probably could have gone down a half size on the 89 for the snug fit that I like. The Halifax is also a double sole but without the HAF sole, which feels much...
RLPL Carter -basically a modified Ecton on the 808 with HAF sole. Picked them up from Ed Morel - a great seller, which probably goes without saying at this point - and just got around to lathering in saphyr reno and neutral polish: http://uptowndandy.blogspot.com/
Yes, I think my problem was that I was between a 52 and 54 so the 52 jacket was an amazing fit but the 52 pants are just a touch too narrow for me. Wearable but just not what I'm used to wearing. The 54 pants would have been better but the jacket would have required more work :-( Let me know if your suit is a 54 - maybe I can buy the pants from you lol
Hi guys, Thanks for the advice! Dan
How long is the sale running at bloomies? Can't get there until Tuesday but can probably get an SAs additional percentage off, whatever that is. The suit that gdl posted looks awesome!
Hi all, I purchased this Dunhill DB suit a few years back, but unfortunately it doesnt get much wear. I think the main reason is that, in my mind, the pattern is a bit too bold for pants (a light brown/dark brown pattern with a light blue window pane pattern. I do like the cut of the jacket though, and so I was wondering: do you think the jacket could be worn with an odd set of trousers? If so, what color would you recommend for the pants? Or is the jacket best left for...
Yes, sleeves do need to be taken up but generally the body fits well with a sz. 16 shirt. I'm not an expert, but I'd say most of it is machine-made.
Here are a few pics of the RLPL shirt that I picked up from Woodbury - not bad, I like the color combo. Looks like it was on sale from $450 to $299.99 at some point, before they dropped the price another 90% to clear them out. I guess they weren't moving enough of them at $299.99
I'm thinking of making a run at those suits from London House in 42 (probably like dozens of others, I'm sure ) - I'm going to double-check my shoulder and length measurements tonight. I have a feeling it might be too long by about 3/4 of an inch (which isn't terrible).
