I guess I'm the only one, but, to me, the straps seem too short and the attachment point too high on the instep.
Can anyone suggest a Seiko model similar to the Monsters but smaller? I've got an Orange Monster and love it. My son needs a watch, likes the Monster but thinks it is a little too big.
I met with Joe Hemrajani in November and ordered a couple of shirts. Fabric was out of stock on one but the other arrived and I'm wearing it today. Shirt seems comparable to Chan with maybe a little cleaner stitching. The standard medium spread collar has a slightly longer point than Chan's and came with very nice brass collar stays. The collar I like. The stays I left at home so I wouldn't set off any courtroom metal detectors. (Is brass magnetic?) Fit seems good...

Shoe, or others with experience, can you give me some info on how the U last would fit a high instep? Is there any common shoe to which you would compare the fit, i.e., C&J 337, 348, 350 etc.? I've really wanted to order a pair of U last for some time but have hesisitated since I have no ability to try on a pair.

The Leathersoul model looks much dressier, like it could be worn with a suit. Actually, I'd get both if they were available in my size.
Norcal, did you ever post your step by step tutorial on antiqueing?
Yes, I meant the entire process with shirts. It's as though a new (and incorrect) pattern was used this time.
I've had a number of issues regarding either fit or details. Each has been addressed by Chan when I have asked. Sometimes though, it's just not worth the hassle of sending the suit back and I've relied on a local tailor to correct the problem. That said, I think some of this is in the nature of using a tailor who is not local. My guess is that the issues I have had would have been eliminated had I been in Hong Kong and able to have fittings. In fairness to Chan, I...
I wish you'd posted this yesterday. I just ordered two mediums from them.
