not familiar w/ options in PB, but RE Miami the options include the shops at Bal Harbor where there is a decent Saks and several name designer stores including Brioni and Zegna. There is also a mall in Coral Gables called the Village at Merrick Park that has a good Neiman's and several designer stores, but Bal Harbor is probably a better bet. If you are into Italian shoes, there is a store on the second floor of the Bal Harbor shops that seems to have a good selection...
I've had decent luck w/ Nordstrums "made-to-measure" shirts. You essentially choose the cut as "tailored" which is a slimmer fit, specify sleeve length and neck size, and have choice RE cuff buttons, shirt pocket or not, collar type, and one or two others. the fabric is from Alumo or Cancini. Price is usually around $140 and up, but a couple weeks ago I got two at $99 during the Anniversary sale.
... suit arrived last week but had to return it as the fit was way off. Too tight in the shoulders and arm holes weren't right either. Was surprised since I've tried on a couple Zegna's at Neiman's which were presumably the Milano cut in the same size. oh well. the fabric seemed very nice though.
yeah, it's the same model. At first I thought it was just in my head, but every time I wear the brown I notice it.
Hmm, if they are mis-sized I suppose I don't have many options at this point except try to stretch them? It's enough of a difference to be annoying, especially after I bought the first pair and obtained a perfect fit and was expecting the same for the second pair of a different color. If there is such variation then online buying is very difficult.
yes, they are on the same last and same size. RE the leather, hmm, since it's the same shoe shouldn't the type of leather used be the same?
I have two pairs of the C&J Savile, one in black and one in brown, both size UK 9.5E. I've had both for several months and wear them 1-2 times a week. The black seems to fit perfect, while the brown is still slightly tight in the width. Or perhaps my foot seems to sit in a better spot in the shoe in the black. the length is identical. Is it possible that there is a noticeable difference in width for the same shoe size? Should I try to have a cobbler stretch the...
from what I've heard steam cleaners are best for suits ... not that great for shirts
RE the lapel roll, how does one ensure that this is maintained when one has a suit pressed or dry cleaned (which I know shouldn't be done too often)? Do good dry cleaners know what to do or does it need tdo be emphasized?
yes, that would be yours truly. It looked too good to pass up. Will let you guys know how it turns out. Ironically, I'm in Dublin at the moment and a local store (Browne Thomas) has a big sale (50% off selected items) and I came close to picking up a Zegna suit in the "micronosphere" (sp) fabric, but the fit seemed differnt than the 52's I've tried on in the states, didn't sit quite right on the shoulders (tight), perhaps different for the European market. ...
