Hi, all. I'm new to the world of shoes and would appreciate someone explaining something to me. In this photo from Edward Green, note the profile view of this shoe, especially as it goes from toe to center: Now, look at a very similar one from Carmina, The angle from toe to the center seems to be much steeper (unless I'm seeing things) in the Carmina -- i.e., the center portion appears taller? Or perhaps the Carmina having a taller heel, and thus to compensate it...
http://www.theembassyitalia.com/shirting-fabrics.html They claim to be the exclusive retailer of Testa fabrics. Has anyone ever bought anything from them or heard of them before? Thank you.
For the Presidential Spread collar, may I ask the rear (i.e. outer) collar height? I think the site says 1 5/8", but I can't tell if that refers to the rear collar inner band, which tends to be a bit shorter than the outer one. Thank you.
I guess what I'm asking is: The 2/160s has MORE cotton threads in it, right? In other words, higher thread count = more cotton, no? If so, how could the weight of a 2/160s fabric be LESS than the weight of a 2/140s fabric? (Both apparently use Giza 45 cotton - i.e., same grade)
Assuming the same grade of cotton is used, how can one fabric be Weight: 100gms/sq.mt Yarn: 2/140's x 2/140's and then another fabric be Weight: 85gms/sq.mt Yarn: 2/160's x 2/160's Wouldn't the higher thread count (assuming all else is equal) result in a heavier fabric, or what am I missing/forgetting?
Hi, all. For those looking to spend no more than 100E per shirt, what would you say is the best option for off the rack dress shirts now? I would need something with a fairly tall collar. So far, it seems like Boggi (at 94E) is one good lead. Thank you.
Thank you. Anything specifically in Rome?
Heading back to Rome this summer. Any new recs for a tailor to make a man's shirt? I think I might try Caleffi again (assuming the price in Euros hasn't changed, it might actually be affordable this time around). Thank you.
Thank you. Any others for Rome? =}
Thank you. Anybody else?
