You might check out: http://sleevehead.blogspot.com/2008/09/enzo-caruso-bespoke-tailor-in-santa.html. . I've never been to him as I live 400 miles away. His more current Yelp reviews are mixed especially in terms of having garments ready on time. http://www.yelp.com/biz/caruso-enzo-custom-tailor-santa-monica
I had thought someone would have identified him by now. It can be none other than Klaus Finsterdoerten, now retired performance artist and techno theoretician.
"First time I've seen monk straps in real life in the US" It's time to get out of Texas. I had a pair 40 years ago, probably before you were born. And my Dad wore them as part of his uniform in WW II.
In your quest for minimalist elegance, a worthy goal, I pray that you have not also jettsonned your boutonniere.
Yikes !
What were you thinking? I just checked their website. Their RTW collection looks like junk and is priced accordingly. Unless you have fitting issues stick to ( much) higher quality RTW and have them altered, if necessary.
I must be lucky. My shirt laundry has not ruined them. They've been done a few times .
A couple of decades ago Florsheim Imperials were among the highest quality shoes made in the US, with prices at the high end. The shoes that you show look very low quality as their price indicates. Today, Florsheim is just a brand. It has no connection to the original owners.
OK, Here's a suggestion. Go to the best mens' shops in you area, Chicago,if I recall, and ask them who their "outside tailor" is. Many mens shops useoutside tailors for special or extra alteration work. This is true of Men's Depts inretailers like Niemans, Saks, etc. You'll probably find very competenttailors this way. Good Luck.
