Wing Tip and its' predecessor OnThe Fly seem to cycle through vendors.A few months ago was there and aside from the gorgeous sales woman, I recalla wide selection of Woverine 1000 mile boots. None in my size
+ 1 You can't go wrong with this "uniform" It signifies some gravitas. After a while,when you see what others are wearing you can modify your clothes.
I own no oxfords,only derbies. I will never buy oxfords because I don't like them.That's a good enough reason for me. I also like monks but double monks areawful, IMHO.
Ottino in Florence Italy. My briefcase from them is appraoching 30 years old and the lock still works. It cost around $400 in the mid 80s. http://www.ottino.com/Default.aspx?lang=eng
"Does this make sense? I'm asking because I plan to do a MTM and wanted to send measurements based on a good fitting jacket." I do not know if youv'e already done "remote" MTM successfully. I would nevertheless recommend against it. MTM, even when measured by a competent in store professional, can result in an unsatisfactory outcome. It's happened to me several times. At least the store is responsible and will cover the alterations or offer refunds. Feel free to PM...
NMWA's Inlglese shirts are very tapered. The 16 1/2 wouldn't fit me, as I recall.
It is no accident that the 18th century British called their countrymen, who returned from the Grand Tourwith Italianate dress and manners, " Macaronis"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macaroni_(fashion)I come from a different tradition which may be summed up in one sentence:Dress British and think Yiddish.
Not that I am in the market for bespoke, for financial and practical reasons, but Cifonelli's creativity would be wasted on me.Luca's outfits notwithstanding, most of what I've seen from Rubinacci, both in person and online, hits my "sweet spot".The same could be said of Steed, and possibily Solito. I suspect that some of the experts in this thread will tell me thatmy examples are not comparable.
That's a great idea!I'd go on step further: get it without a belt in the back.
