Width? D, E, EE. EEE, etc.? Also overall measurements: Length Width at widest point- done w/ tape measure,. instep- measured by putting tape around shoe at instep Thanks.
This raises another aspect, shoulder slope.I believe that jefferyd has broad sloped shoulders, which he has pointed out.This involves different tailoring challenges.No one ever accused me of having an athletic build- although when I used torun, I was much trimmer around the midsection. I do have big square shouldersand a very deep chest, so that any of the species of "natural" shoulders shownlook beter on me than a built up shoulder.
Down market is a polite code word for not very respectable looking.Neither approaches the classic gentleman that SF celebrates, budget notwithstanding.Somethibg like this is what I mean:http://www.villagehatshop.com/product/straw-hats/917970-1117/scala-snap-brim-panama-hat.html?utm_source=googleproductads&utm_medium=cpc&gclid=My guess is that you would be able to find a hat like this at a mmuch lower price..
Now you can appreciate the daily humiliations that clowns endure. Seriously, return the shoes if possible and get another last.
I own several oxford cloth shirts. None are button down. Mine come from H&K, T&A, Finamore, Hawes and Curtis ( old owner) The Finamore was bought this year.
Both have a down market vibe. However, if that doesn't matter buy either. eg: http://starcasm.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Nikolaj_Coster-Waldau.jpg http://galleryhats.com/fashion-straw-fedora-hat-for-men.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-trJ-QUw-s8k/T0kS42jefcI/AAAAAAAAAIs/Uc9YLua6gSk/s1600/Ibrahim+Ferrer.jpg (the late great Cuban singer- featured in the film: Buena Vista Social Club)
In my day (1980s) most of their merchandise, while high quality, was very"sharply"styled. What the cast of the Sopranos would have worn had the series beenset in the 80s.
That's amazing. The brand probably dates from the 70s. Before that I believe it was exclusively couture. I do not remember that it was ever considered a quality brand like Cardin and YSL were at their inception around the same time. I guess I was wrong.. Not that I wouid have known, in those days I wore J Press, Chipp and Paul Stuart
Unless they've improved, Lands End quality is questionable.I speak from personal experience, but not w/ gingham shirts
Very high quality shirts. Not much in button down. http://www.hilditchandkey.co.uk/Gentlemen/Shirts/Button-Down/Default.aspx
