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?
Just wanted to ask again about people's recommendations for Singapore tailors for non-fashion forward (fully canvassed) suits, shirts and odd trousers. There isn't much here except for GShen's pictures from Iris Tailor (you have my very old threads about Joe's Tailor which are inconclusive and I love the shirts he made for what it's worth). TheKerbau.com is a bit tough to browse and I'm not sure who are credible over there in that local forum. If Iris Tailor is it, up to...
I have a friend who is designing his own walk in closet as part of a renovation. He wants to put in a number of shallow shelves for small accessories, particularly ties, pocket squares, cuff links and belts. How should he design these? For ties, for example, is it better to have shallow (4 inch) wide drawers and just put folded ties there like you see in store displays? Or should you have small, shallow cubbyholes (3.5 x 3.5 inches) to put rolled ties in?
I've been looking for a less rugged leather messenger bag, something that would be great for long walks or as a book/laptop bag (so I'd want it to fit a reasonably sized hardbound book such as Steve Jobs' bio or a 13" Mac Air, but not be much larger). What do you guys think about: Hermes Steve: Awesome blog post about this messenger bag: http://burbailey.blogspot.com/2010/10/begin-of-another-journey-hermes-steve.html Louis Vuitton Omaha: Anyone know what...

Thanks for the tip! I went to Jack's but gut feel told me it was a cut below the Cab I saw in San Cristobal. I found Cab four blocks away and it was great stuff. The weird thing is they only made practically three models, with the difference solely in fabric (polycotton, Japanese linen, pure cotton and pure Irish linen). The cheapest is 950 Mexican pesos. I think the traditional model (four pockets and long sleeves, two narrow lines of pleats) is about 1,800 Mexican pesos...
What's the best place to get guayaberas in Merida? Different for formal and casual ones?
