Similar experience here. According to the Brannock and the people operating it I always cone out at 8.5 D with my left foot slightly bigger than the right. However, based on my subjective sense of comfort I have rarely found a US 8.5 or equivalent to fit. AE 9D in all lasts that I have tried EG 82 last 8.5/9E JL 8E Vass U last 42.5 Vass F last 42 Barker Black 8E RM Williams 8 St. Crispin's 8.5F UK equivalent (can't remember the Euro size; 42 I think). There are no...
^ +1 for Epaulet. Check out the site and see the pants being worn and decide if they manifest in premature aging.
I have yet to experience any of the major errors others have reported. To date, I have had three odd jackets, seven suits and twenty-one shirts made. "Quality" bespoke tailoring in Canada is almost non-existent. I could travel to America where the options are greater but at this point I do not have the time nor inclination to do so. So, from a rational viewpoint I decided to take a chance with Hiras and will continue to work with them. Developing a relationship with...

Peter Chettiar was the fitter. He was very personable and I enjoyed working with him. As...

Heritage Research, nonnative & White Mountaineering are several of many companies like Cabourn re-interpreting the past. They all have done interesting pieces. F/W 2010 was more like what you are looking for (maybe) as compared to Spring/Summer 2011. Interesting looks and fabrics. I've liked the products I've bought from all of the above but I just don't know if they will have the bulletproof quality of say Filson to function for 20 years. ...
