Thanks, we are thinking of doing a trip atm, meeting with a few different manufacturers should prove to be fruitful. The initial problem still remains, how do we list out the good manufacturers from the really bad ones? If we were to travel to, let's say China, there's countless of manufacturers that are great and likewise the same amount that produces absolute crap. How did ones on SF list these out? On another note, is there a good site to browse for manufacturers?
A few of us are on the verge of starting our own company. I know that there are lots of affiliates on this site that are doing something similar to what we are planing and therefore in the interest of menswear would want to give us a few tips and a nodge in the right direction. I'm not asking for any "secrets" or complete business models, just sound advice. We are about to start a company that offers shirts of decent quality for a decent price. We are not trying to offer...
^They are not.
X-post. Tassel loafers are finally starting to break in, it was an unpleasant experience. I'm a 7.5 in Hiro, although they are a bit too big in the instep. Lenghtwise okay. I went with 7 in the Ron and they're boarderline too big. 7.5 would have not worked for me in this last and I'm glad that I sized down.
Today. Spring is here and out come the loafers!
Yup, those bexley's are way too pointy imo. Atleast from a timeless perspective.
I own a pair of chukkas from the diplomat range. Quality is better than Loake 1880, not quite on par with C&J benchgrade. Construction is very solid but leather quality could be better. I can snap a pic of how my pair is holding up after a long winter of salt and slush.
I purchased a bag from Opumo about a year ago today and can warmly recommend the store to everyone here. Superfast shipping and friendy CS. If I'm on the lookout for accessories, Opumo is the first store I check. Currently I'm eyeing a nice umbrella by London Undercover Also, nice to finally see you here!
+1I really do believe that wholecuts are the hardest shoe to get spot on. Even top manufacturers struggle with coming up with a decent wholecut, but when they get it right, it really is a thing of beauty. GG for intance makes a wonderful wholecut (as the posted pic proves).
Agreed, apart from the blue plain 3-piece there's really nothing else that cathes my eye. But that only intrigues me because I'm searching for something similiar atm.Wasn't shocked that they made a pair of trousers that are completely over the top. Cool in a way, but a bit too much for me.
