is there anywhere we can see swatches from the vaunted Crispaire book online? H&S' website seems to feature a few samples from most of their books, but I don't see the Crispaire book listed there. Would like to see at least some online images to narrow down some potential choices for a Chan suit to be made up in the fall. Don't want to show up to my appointment and having to rush through all the books.
Great looking suit, love the shape/proportion of the lapels and the open quarters on the jacket. Is this a typical Chan shoulder? How would you describe it in terms of padding? I ask becase I am considering a Chan suit in the fall. I prefer a lightly-padded shoulder with a roped sleevehead (helps correct my sloping shoulders). Do you think this would be achievable with Chan? Thanks for sharing your experiences, I'll of course email Patrick as well to get his view.
Somehow I managed to miss the boat on the past few offerings. Looking for ether the 100% cotton (preferable) or cotton/linen blends in white, cream, stone, taupe or shades of tan/beige. Thanks everyone, please respond or PM if available.

I managed to answer my own question: F Flittner (near Moorgate station) did an excellent job, at only 16 quid.

Was hoping that there would be a London equivalent to the near ubiquitous shoe shine stands one finds in NY, Chicago, etc. I guess they just don't exist...
I am going to be working in London for the next few months. Where can one get a decent shoe shine in the City? I work near Bank station. My google and forum searches did not yield a definitive answer on the subject. Many thanks everyone.
I will be working in London for the next three months or so, and am in need of a good, reliable barber. Would like to keep it under or around 30GBP if possible. I work near London Bridge station, but anywhere easily accessible by tube is fine with me. Bonus points if they're open on Saturday, as I often work long hours during the week and have trouble getting away during the day. Any recommendations? Thanks everyone.

Apparently the Polo store on Michigan Avenue "didn't get many of the basics this season" according to the SA. They did have weird looking shorts in bright pink and purple however if I was interested in those...
