All the above seem within reason. You do want this done well particularly if it is a well built garment. I have my Caruso sourced Barney's private label jackets shortened from the shoulder as the body of the 54L fits me perfectly but the sleeves than are 4 inches too long. They charge me $60 with the purchase (generally during sale times) for this extra work. And these jackets have a wonderful gathered sleevehead and so far the LV tailor has done a very good job on...
A wonderful time was had by all. It was a real pleasure meeting everyone. For those of you that have not attended a SF meetup, it was an excellent time of fellowship. There was a surprising lack of discussion of matters sartorial. In fact I remember virtually none. More general camaraderie and lively discusson on a wide range of topics. I look forward to doing it again. Perry
Looking forward to it. We got up at 4 this morning to catch the first plane to SF, so are pretty certain we won't last until dinner, but the weather is great and we will walk over. Perry
I am giving you 25 year old advice here, so take it for what its worth, but in my SEAsia travels I never found a quality tailor in Bangkok or Singapore. Plenty in HK and I think now in Shanghai. I would imagine that some of them must have a Beijing operation. Perry
I am a 8.5E UK in EG and JL. I wear an 8.5E from Vass if ordered in UK sizing and I do have a pair that has 8- on the bottom signifying my order through a German retailer at 8.5 E. I also have a euro sized pair that are 42.5 and I believe they are the same size. So am thinking you may be a 42. Perry
Many of the suits that high end retailers are ordering now from our favorite makers are now ordered with flat front. Works great for the younger crowd. I am not "younger" but have bought several flat fronts lately from Oxxford. They tend to have a bit more room than the flat fronts I have on an Isaia suit or 2 sourced from NM lately. Perry
The shoe sole will have an obvious wide point that is where the ball of the foot should fall. If the ball of the foot is there you are good. If not the shoe does not fit. Perry
The Fashion Show Las Vegas NM has one pair of the kiton that matches this Bontoni on sale at 25% off in a size 9.5. Which is likely a US size 10.5-11. Perry
I was at Nieman Marcus one day visiting my sales guy and another of his regular customers came in that he introduced me to. We were chatting and getting to know each other. During this process, the sales guy asked me if my wife was with me. I answered, "yes, she is over at Macy's shopping." The other fella couldn't believe that my wife shopped at Macy's while I was shopping at NM. I suppose that is a good thing, because 2 people regularly shopping at NM would...
When I first traveled I also brought one pair of shoes with a matching belt because it did lighten the load. However the new 22 inch wheeled carryon's (I have a Hartmann) allow you to go back to brown if you like. I routinely pack the bottom of the case with 2 pair of good brown shoes with wooden shoe trees and put a week's worth of business and casual clothes on top of them. The top of the case has a casual pair of loafers or running shoes along with my casual...
