Hi Yasu,Not this time. IT was just an impulse buy. I have also two three piece suits and a sport jacket with him that I am still due to attend a first fitting but I am at my heaviest in 10 years and want to shed some weight before I finalise these.I have another two suit length, several sport jackets and flannel trousers unfounded that will also find their way to the tailor once I am back in shape....
In Naples for the weekend. Borrelli's shop in via Fialangieri looks to be in liquidation with an "everything must go" sign and 80% on goods in the windows. Argenio has also a special sale on everything in the shop, but they are not closing. Worth checking them out if passing by Naples as they have jacket cuts at 40 to 70% off.

As I said, you need to enquire with each factory you may have access to. Someone on this forum reported doing that with Alfred Sargent a while ago.
I am referring to the Naples area were there are several factories making shoes for designer Italian brands as well as French groups. You would need to discuss it with each factory as they would not want to advertise this service.The problem is not using the last by itself, but modifing the pattern and cut it on a one off basis.I have gone with an home based shoemaker from Naples, soon will post some pictures
Dore Dore, Gallo and Sozzi
Munky, this is a thread about Loake, where discussions about how they compare to other makers and/or what other do better or worst have always been part of it (I was one of the early contributor to this thread)...
Those are not my shoes, but were posted on SF a while ago. I have saved them as I am having a pair of bespoke shoes in handcoloured calf crust to match that colouring.I am aware of the price differences, but JB are made in Northampton as well and Alden are also in a different price range then Loake. If you look around Europe, Carmina also had a nice Burgundy option.
So these JL Northampton in Burgundy Museum calf are not as good as any American counterpart ?
obviously linen
