All, I've learned a lot by following the men's clothing section of SF but have not spent too much time following streetware and denim. Although I feel relatively confident buying suits, shoes, shirts, and ties, I can't say the same for jeans. In fact, I own only 1 pair of old Nautica jeans that are somewhat baggy. I'm going on a trip soon and would like to pick up a pair of jeans but don't have too much time for shopping or reading up. If my store options are...
hmm, wasn't aware of him, a google search turned up some discussion on AAAC as well. His bespoke suits are 4k. Wonder if it's "worth it". Any, he doesn't do alternations. Any rec's for a good tailor for alternations? I have a nice Corneliani suit that needs the pants altered and don't want to have it messed up by a bad tailor.
Does anyone know of a good Miami area tailor?
I've heard this a few times ... i.e., that one only puts the trees in for a day or so after wearing and leave the other shoes sans trees ... whereas others seem to own trees for every pair ... thoughts on this approach?
thanks ... is there a consensus on a particular one that is good for the 337 last? which do you use? I have some older cedar trees that I could use I guess but don't want to stretch them or increase creasing, etc.
just checked, right now the C&J trees are around $77 from plal.com. For the 337 last how important is it that I get these? I looked at some old threads that suggested that the epic might be a bit wide. ps - any suggestions for lighter trees for short travel?
All, I'm buying a couple more shoes from plal.com and was wondering if I should also get a couple of their shoes trees. They are a bit pricey at around 70 bucks, is it worth it, or should any regular cedar shoe trees do? I see in an old thread that cedarville epic shoe trees can be had for 20. Is there much of a difference between the C&J trees and these, i .e., are the C&J trees such perfect fit for C&J shoes, etc? thanks!
RE thefashionspot.com, it appears that to join the forum one has to receive an invite from a current member ... is anyone here a current member or this forum?
I vote for the Zegna ...
Okay, I recently purchased the Belgave in black from plal.com and really like them. I'd like to use this as the base for a new shoe collection, and my current suit colors are charcoal, dark blue, black, and tan. I'm thinking that if I were to add two shoes now, w/ an eye on adding a 4th in the not too distant future, that I should order 1 black and 1 brown now, and then 1 more brown later, so that I'll end up w/ a rotation of 2 black and 2 brown. Perhaps start off...
