I wear Brown Suede Ludwig Reiter three eyelet "Spitzderbies" They are very well-made and not inexpensive. Unfortunately, they dropped the last that fits me, so another pair for me would be a special make up at 100 Euros extra. Base price around 700+ Euros http://www.stylebop.com/grafic/product2/154/900/154581.jpg Imagine these in suede.
Beautiful tweed. Looks like a British cut- slanted pockets, etc. Such a jacket calls for Cavalry Twills in tan, taupe or gray. http://www.cordings.co.uk/tan-cavalry-twill-trousers.html https://www.flickr.com/photos/21258969@N05/11537742025
You should get veldtshoen type boots. They are waterproof. Several vendors make them: http://www.tredders.com/brands/alfred-sargent/alfred-sargent-veldtshoen-collection/alfred-sargent-veldtschoen-selkirk-dark-brown.html http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/snowdon-oak Less expensive options: http://loomstate.blogspot.com/2012/02/veldtschoen-variations.html
Now for something completely different. Came in my email today. http://justviral.eu/2015/09/13/17-photos-that-prove-that-walmart-is-a-different-planet/people-of-walmart-4/
Anyone had experience buying a suit from the the following outlets? Please share, thanks! Nordstrom rack Saks OFF 5TH Armani Outlet Ferragamo outlet Been in several. Never bought anything. As a rule these outlets do not sell the same merchandise as the store name would suggest, e.g. Saks, Nordstom,etc. They stock much lower quality clothing than their parent stores, clothing that is purchased for the outlets. Occasionally one can find "real" Saks or Nordstom merchandise,...
I had a jacket in tan gabardine with notch lapels almost as wide. But it was in the late 70s and made by the immortal Roland Melendandri* *http://forums.filmnoirbuff.com/viewtopic.php?id=246&p=2 ( by Nina Meledandri)
I feel your pain. ( For some reason my computer did not display the photos of your suit, so I cannot comment on the fit) . Last year Indochino hosted a meet-up for SF in San Francisco at their store here. The people from Indochino were very nice. But among the numerous MTM vendors who have hosted Style Forum meet-ups in San Francisco, Indochino's offeriings were the worst. Even if your order fit properly, it would have loudly proclaimed "Dreck"- a garment industry...
They really do. Like they are almost independent from the rest of the jacket.
Can't make the Meet-Up. How long does the trunk show run on Saturday 10/24? I have a previous commitment through about 3 PM Thanks.
