Posts by Mr. Pink

For my next order, I continue to vacillate between a 105 with no medalion, a 522b, and a 596. Also can't decide between Cru 607 and 608, though I figure that will be easier when I can see the swatches.
I've never seen that book. I'll have to ask for it. What are the weights like?
Not sure if this is whipcord or cavalry twill. From the H&S Dakota book. I think this is 14 1/2 oz. Was thinking about getting a pair of pants made in this.
On the old St. Crispin's website, there was a guide to caring for shoes. It recommended using only polish such as Saphir or Kiwi for regular care, saddle soap when shoes are dirty, and pure turpentine to remove old wax. That's consistent with what Mr. Carr has said to me and others at trunk shows. When I talked to him, he didn't seem to have any strong preference for any particular polish and was used Kiwi to shine my shoes.
After seeing your post, I downloaded the look book. Very helpful, not so much for leather colors but for model numbers and how the different models look on different lasts.
Is this the chiseled last or something bespoke? Anyone able to compare the fit of the the chiseled relative to the classic?
I didn't ask but it didn't feel too heavy, maybe 11 oz or so.
I stopped at my tailor yesterday saw this swatch sitting on his workbench. He told me one of his wealthier customers had sent a 40 year old jacket into W. Bill and asked them to duplicate it in cashmere. He had two identical jackets made of the material. Of course, he was required to pay for 20 or 30 meters, but is being reimbursed as the remainder of the run is sold. Fabric was quite beautiful in real life. Sorry for the crappy iphone pics. Mktitsworth, I'm...
Is there anywhere to easily view all of St. Crispin's various leathers?
Just arrived from the LSBH trunk show. Rounded U cap adelaide in dark bordeaux. Phillip Carr fit me in a 10.5F for the left foot, 10.0G for the right with last adjustments at the ball of foot of both shoes. Fit is the most perfect I have ever had in a shoe. I may have bought my last pair of shoes from anyone else.
