Was in their shop on Clifford St in London in September. I have some of their shirts bought more than a decade ago that have held up very well. Didn't buy any this time. I liked a sweater, but it was not available in my size. Overall, prices were very attractive considering the neighborhood.

If you are 4E or ˙H ( UK width measure) none of these brands will fit. Church's makes a very few models in 4E available in their London stores. Shipton and Henage offers several models in 4E as well. Weston offers their classic 180 model loafer in very wide( they use their own sizing system) Last month i was in London and made the rounds of several of the RTW high end shoe vendors. Most do not carry anything wider than 2E or G. You might also check out...
I hadn't been in the Union Square main shopping area of SanFrancisco in close to two months, having been traveling in the UK .

I have Park Avenues but they do not last the winters where I live due to snow and rock salt. They cost too much to replace annually. Rubber covers are just not convenient or really useable. Park Avenues are Oxfords, not Bluchers.
That's CUSTOMER SERVICE ! You'll probably now buy Brioni exclusively

To complicate the discussion of Dunhill Ltd's entry into tailored clothing, In 1985 Dunhill Ltd. ( tobacco, etc ) acquired New York bespoke tailor "Dunhill Tailors" ( no relation ) My comments on probably the best bespoke in New York from 2009: Dunhill Tailors A wonderful store. In RTW they featured several models which were basically a hybrid Saville Row/ Ivy League look, eg. side vents but natural shoulders. I got a summer suit there in the early 80s ... very elegant...
Last month I was in Edinburgh and in the Georgian part of town came upon a bespoke tailor: Stewart Christie http://www.stewartchristie.com. As their website indicates, they offer RTW and MTM as well as Bespoke. From the examples of their bespoke on display their house style seems to be very traditional in an Anderson Shepard-type style. Since I was only in Edinburgh for a few days I did not pursue details of their MTM and Bespoke programs. Their prices seemed very...
