Wearing shoes without socks and not using shoe trees seems a likely combo to me. Not caring about anything seems to be a popular attitude to some. Perry
I can't tell you what my commercial launderer uses in terms of water temp but one characteristic of all my My Tailor orders is that they seem huge when received but fit exactly as I want after 3 commercial washings and seem to hold that size for some time. Perry
My only Bontoni's are sourced from Wilkes Bashford and they seemed to be sized in very typical US sizing. I am a US 9D and that is what was on the Bontoni box. For reference I wear an 8.5 E UK size in C&J, EG and JL. I suppose I find them a bit on the generous size a la JL rather than the tighter fit of the 337 and 348 C&J. Perry
I saw my first pair of RLPLs from Italy at RL store at the Palazzo in LV last week. $1100 was the retail price. Seemed nice enough but won't turn my head from EG or JL. Of course if Grapevinehill starts selling them for $179 I may try a pair. Perry
From both a fit and finish standpoint: Shoes: John Lobb tailored clothing: Kiton then Oxxford casual slacks: Bernard Zin Shirts: My Tailor Ties: Talbott (I know, but I love the knot they tie) Perry
Great shoes! Thank you for scoring them so one of us could enjoy them. Perry
Back to the OPs question, I would think a 25 lb wt loss could be worked out for well less than $500. However your tailor will give you a better number Perry
I use a chestnut croc. PK
Alas, sometimes the orders do get a bit bolexed up. Other than the color this is the exact shoe I ordered when I got my Cognac Oxford Medallion model which was ordered as an Italian-Oxford w/medallion. And they are my size. Hmmmm, do I really hate black shoes? Probably not. At any rate, they are great shoes and in black probably way more suitable to most folks here. Whoever scores these will enjoy them. Perry
Unfortunately I will not be in town. I have formalized my SF travel schedule for the next 6 months and it will be the week that starts with the 3rd Monday of the month. I am looking forward to the next GTG that fits that schedule. In the meantime, have great cheer at the GTG! Perry
