Haven't followed Alden in quite a while. Anywhere I can kop cigar shell cordovan's on the Van or Aberdeen last? Have these been available from any retailer in recent memory? Can they be done MTO or through a group buy?
On the Breton, I went with my normal knitwear sizing. I thought it even looked a bit more relaxed on the Mr.P model than I'd want on me. Hopefully what you're saying doesn't mean I should have sized up.I picked up the Dune turtleneck from Gentry NYC, which I think is the turtleneck version of the fisk terry. Agreed, the texture is great. Very soft on the inside and substantial. I just thought the length ran a bit short in body and sleeves.
Does Big John offer lighter washed denim? I think I'm over the whole raw phase. I don't wear denim often enough to impart my own awesome fadez. That, and I tend to rotate among a few pairs, so wearing the hell out of a raw doesn't work out so well.
