You really can't go wrong with any of the above options. My vote would be for the Lobbs...no real reason though.
I read that WSJ article awhile back and watched some corresponding video with the author. I don't want to bash her, but she really didn't sound like she knew much about high quality suits. That being said, assuming the tailors who ranked the suits knew their stuff, it is somewhat impressive how well the SuitSupply suits graded out (and equally unimpressive how the Hart Schaffner Marx suits did). I am not in the market for a middle of the road suit right now, but when I...
Paul Stuart spring sale has a bunch of shoes in the store that are not on the website sale section. The Kings model is a really nice cap-toe, from the Stuarts Choice line, and are on sale for ~$350. They have them in burnished brown, tan and black...all really nice, but they are going quick.

I emailed Alden about resizing (re-lasting) a pair of shoes about 6 months ago. They told me they could do it (though I got lazy and never got around to sending them in). I would check with Alden before jumping to the conclusion that they don't re-size shoes.
I have been using the same guy for basic RTW alterations for some time now. He does a pretty good job, but I am wondering where he falls on the price spectrum of Manhattan tailors. Generally, for a suit he will charge.... $20 - to hem the pants $25 - to bring in the waist $50 ($25 each side) - to bing in the sides of a suit jacket $50 ($25 each) - to shorten the sleeves $10 - for each working button hole on the sleeves Is this in-line with what other new...
Got a lot of pairs of bit loafers: AE Verona, classic Gucci, Alden, Cole Haan, Ferragamo, etc.... surprisingly I actually don't find myself wearing them that much, but if I were to suggest one pair it would be the Alden's. I have the Cape Cod version and they are probably the best constructed and definitely the most comfortable of the group....they are also a great bang for you buck when compared to Gucci/Ferragamo.
I rarely see anyone under 50 wearing these shirts at my bank. I think most people thing they are a little ridiculous.
Can someone fill me in on the best way to condition the chromexcel leather? I am not looking to get shine or anything, but I'd like to cover up some of the scuffs and keep them from drying up. I was thinking of using either Saphir Renovateur or Venitian Shoe Creme. I know Quoddy sells a wax, but it seems as though that is more for waterproofing than conditioning...maybe I use that after one of the above? Thanks
