Does anyone own a pair of the the 80444 brown captoe derby? I sized up 1/2 size on the Rain oxfords to account for the instep, and I am wondering if I should go back down 1/2 on the 80444 bluchers? Thanks.
Have a BNWT Woolrich Arctic Parka DF in Dark Navy XL. This is the latest model (style #WO1674) being sold by Woolrich in the US. This is from the John Rich & Bros line which features a much slimmer cut than Woolrich's traditional line.
Asking for $450 + shipping. Prefer local pickup in NYC. Given the weight of the parka, shipping shouldn't cost more than ~$15-20,...
Can anyone recommend a shop to get a wool topcoat re-lined?
Also, how much should I be looking to spend? I understand it's a pretty big job. I've been quoted ~$400 by my usual alterations shop so am not sure if that is the norm.
Quick question - I am a C42 in a Beaufort I purchased a while ago (I believe 2009). I have some JCrew gift cards and was looking at the Ashby jackets, but am unsure of the sizing given these run S - XL. If the sleeves of the C42 fit me well, should I go for a L or XL in the Ashby? I don't mind if the waist & chest is a bit boxy, as I tend to wear my Barbour open. Thanks.
It's wider at the heel and narrower in the toe, at least to me. I find this to be the issue w/ the Rui as well, even more so. Also, which AE last are you talking about? If it's the 5 (Park Ave, Strand, et al), that is a narrow to begin with, but uniformly narrow. The Hiros also have a higher instep.
I feel like the Hiro is too wide at the heel for a "standard" E last. I'm btwn a E-EE and I get heel slip on all my Hiros (UK 11.5) while the toe box is slightly narrow. They really need to come up with a truly standard last. Carmina's Inca / Rain lasts work much better, IMO.
