Hi, I am considering commissioning my first sports jacket from MyTailor on their next visit to Toronto. I've got 20+ shirts from them I'm very happy with so far. I've got a local tailor who does a pretty good job on my suits/jackets currently, but the MyTailor price point is attractive enough that I've decided to give it a shot. I'm thinking of having a not-quite-navy/indigo blazer made up. I already own a dark navy MTM Samuelsohn blazer from many years ago that I'm...
If you don't mind my asking, what was the damage on taxes and duties?
Bought these from Gilt, but they're too big and never got around to returning them in time. Light tan Borrelli Luxury Vintage cap-toe bluchers. Retail, according to Gilt, is $900. Price is $350 (or best reasonable offer) shipped in Canada or the U.S, which is less than what I paid originally. Willing to ship elsewhere, but would be at cost. These are marked as size 8.5, and Gilt said this was an American sizing, but they are a half to full size too big for me (for...
I've looked in stores, though there aren't many choices up here, and haven't found anything exactly right, both in terms of fabric and fit. Some things come close, but for $2k+, i'd rather go custom.

I've decided to commission a second "overcoat" and would appreciate some advice and inspiration. For background, I live in Toronto and wear suits/jackets to work every day. I currently have an 8-year old charcoal grey cashmere overcoat that is functional but boxy and not particularly stylish. It's a below the knee Tilford model from Harry Rosen. I'm planning to supplement this coat with something a little more modern, but could use a little help in 3 main areas. 1....
Sorry, just to clarify, this sale is only at the Heartland outlet location? Might be worth a trip across town on the weekend. If anyone happens to be there on Thursday, please report back with findings.
Another sizing question: is the consensus to size down a half or full size? I have no similar boots for comparison, but I wear an 8.5D in AE Park Avenues, a 7.5E in C&J 337 last, and an 8.5 in most American running shoe styles. Unfortunately, tougher to try on in person up in Canada...
Your eyes deceive you, it's 5 bottles of Pappy!To answer your question, we had a Buffalo Trace tasting event up here in Canuckistan and they had Pappy (and the others) available to order for those in attendance. The Pappy was $120 per bottle. I put in for 12 bottles, and originally received 2, but apparently a few people flaked on their orders, so was able to pick up another 3.
just picked this up:
