Seems like things aren't going too well for the English makers. A couple of years ago Leather Soul told G&G to fuck off and more recently Geroge Cleverley. Now G&G were dropped by The Armoury aswell. Looking at these policies I can't really say that I'm surprised, this all smells like rip-off.
Kathryn Sargent, formerly of Gieves and Hawkes, has the reputation of being an excellent choice for women. If my memory serves me correctly she is also quite expensive. In his book Richard Anderson mentions that cutting for women can prove to be quite a challenge, especially with regard to the obvious.
Really? Nowadays most of these threads consist of spam by vendors and people affiliated with them. Why should they be interested in honest exchange? They want to sell and pay to have their stuff advertised on the forum. When I check the forum and see 20 posts by Gianni Cerutti gratulating people on their puchases I can't help but laugh. This place has become a shadow of it's former shit self. The only bright spark recently was the thread by mafoofan about his Cleverley shoes.
Does anyone know if these are a UK 9 oder 8.5? Many thanks!
Very nice and elegant, yet sportive outfit. Would you mind to share your shoemaker?
Hello fellow users, I'll be heading to Apuglia for this year's Whitsun holiday and wonder if anybody has any recommendations for shopping there. I know there are a few bespoke tailors, eypecially in the area around Bari, but I'm mostly looking for normal stores, both shoes and clothing. I've checked the search function but nothing came up. Other tips are also welcome. Thanky you and best wishes!
Where exactly do you plan on going? I doubt you'll be fine on small luggage only. The limit is usually about 7kg. Some airlines can be very strict about it and the fines can be heavy, compared to the fares. Also if your two luggage items are too large it may also cause problems, usually you are allowed only one larger bag and one small hand luggage item. Don't expect any sympathy from most of the low-budget carriers. You could also consider trains to connect between larger...
In my experience there can even be differences between single shoes and different models. I wear size UK9 and shoes on the 325 fit fine, the 337 can be too big or fit well, sizing down makes the shoes too small, 341 can be too tight or fit well, 348 can fit ok or too big, but again 8.5 would be woo small. In the different CJ stores all over London I was told that the size would be the same in every last, though fit can be different. It's also the reason why I'll never bu...
When I was in Florence in June the name plate above the store was empty. Great work btw, we should have such a thread for every major city.
Settantarte or LR Via Porta Rossa, 78/R Small shoe store. Nice shoes (made by former Sutor Mantellassi employees) and good prices. Luciano Gloves On the road that leads to the Pontevecchio. A bit cheaper than Madova and also good quality. I think on Via Roma there is another men's store where you have to walk up some stairs. Can't remember the name though.
