Hi I am looking sat the Plal specials for Cheaney shoes. Where does Cheaney rank compared to Loakes. I have some Loakes but have found their leather to be stiff and plastic aside from the Chukkas which I really like.

These look good value. All their cotton is 100/120 2 ply Egyptian cotton. This is better than many of the MTM shirtmakers in Sydney.
Hi I have recently found a site in Singapore that sells fabric online. See http://hst.com.sg/ I am thinking of ordering some linen for a suit but I have no idea if the prices are good value are not. The linen is Italian. In general is it better value buying your own fabric and taking it to your tailor to be made up.
