Thanks, agree with you all!
Does anyone here do contrast color thread on buttons and buttonholes on dress shirts by default? Imagine a medium blue shirt with dark navy blue thread on the buttonholes, and to sew the buttons to contrast against mother of pearl buttons. Or, imagine a blue/white striped shirt with dark blue thread for the button holes and to sew buttons on. I find it very distracting and it seems to be an Asian thing, but does anyone do it? Or should one absolutely forbid one's tailor...
I haven't found a lot of closeup pictures and discussions on this topic and wanted to take a quick poll. I am helping a younger friend (early 30s) with his first tailored blazer. It is intended to be lighter weight, usable as a summer blazer (even in the hot tropics), classic dark navy, single breasted 3 roll 2, relatively formal complete with classic brass buttons but can be dressed down. 1) lining: full, half or quarter? 2) pockets: 3 patch, welt + patch side, welt +...
I've been searching for newer threads on blazer details and thought the most active ones were from around 2009. I was even looking for Manton's old blazer suit thread as the pictures no longer load. Anyone have any pictures or leads to pictures of favorite tailored blazer projects? I am recommending a summer blazer to a friend and am thinking to do a light navy fresco, single breasted, notch lapels, welted breast pocket and patch or flap side pockets, side vents, 3 roll...
What is the quality of crocodile and ostrich RM boots?
Does anyone know who might be good to ask about extra wide RM Williams models and quality?
I have a Singaporean buddy who has really, really wide feet. On a lark, he bought a pair of RMs, the only pair in extra wide in his size, at the Sydney airport and realized they fit really well. I suspect he bought the Tambo in dark brown yearling (he left the box and lost the receipt). He said the boots have rubber soles and do not say what width, which matches the Tambo, which only comes in extra wide. It looked like a wider chisel toe version of the Craftsman (so it...
I'll ask him for photos. From what he said, I suspect he bought the Tambo in dark brown. He said the boots have rubber soles and do not say what width, which matches the Tambo, which only comes in extra wide. It looked like a wider chisel toe version of the Craftsman (so it looked a little blobby instead of sleek), which also matches the Tambo. He said the salesperson said the model he tried was the only one with that width and the Craftsman he tried was too narrow. For...
Really silly question. I have a Singaporean buddy who has really, really wide feet. On a lark, he bought a pair of RMs, the only pair in extra wide in his size, at the Sydney airport and realized they fit really well. The problem is, he left the box and lost the receipt, so he has no idea what model and size he got. There seems to be a circle with a "7" on the soles, so he thinks he got a 7 extra wide in brown yearling. He loves them, except the extra wide size means they...
Has anyone here compared Iris Tailor in Singapore to WW Chan or its peers in Hong Kong? Would you choose Iris if you might visit Hong Kong but live in Singapore?
