Check out an audio shop that sells the upper range of shure products- they usually have a package of triple flange buds open for demoing-you can try them to see if they fit your sennheisers and your ears. A note if you have smaller ear canals like I do, I find the bud sits just outside my ear if I use the tips straight out of the box. Instead I trim a part of the sleeve down a bit and they fit perfectly. Leave it to a tailor to mod his earphones for fit, right?
I had the Bose quiet comfort and while they were more comfortable (duh) they didn't do as great at blocking out sound like train noise and construction as in-ear models. I eventually dumped them for the Shure SE535 with the triple-flange bud- the triple-flange design is what many industrial work sites use to protect hearing so you know they work, and when combined with an in-ear headphone they are great if you can get used to the feel of something wedged deep in your ear...
Hickey Freeman makes them.
There are a few who mostly lurk or just check in from time to time.
Darren is no longer in the U.K. so it's not terribly likely. He's in Chicago now.
When you are designing/making/selling half-canvas products, you are in a price-conscious market segment. The lower portion of the canvas is only one of dozens or more cost-saving areas, and it's not insignificant; besides the cost of the canvas itself, there is the additional labor cost of handling, basting, faxing the edges, etc. Savings can be found at every one of the roughly 180 operations and 35-50 unique components in making a garment, between the trims and...
Simon Crompton is an enthusiast, not a technician and is likely mistaken. It's not 100% impossible but very improbable that there is no fusing. Since they are unlined it would be easy to see. If someone has one, let's have a peek.
I don't know where that author of sartorialjournal got the idea that there are half-canvas garments without fusible but it's not true.
There is sometimes an outlet of an additional 3/4" or 1" on the inseam all the way to the bottom to widen the trouser. Best to check.
I'm sorry but this is absolutely incorrect.Hugo Boss is a notable exception in that most (all?) of their suits sold in the US have minimal seam allowances at about 1 cm or 3/8" but the industry standard is a minimum of 5/8" and some, such as Samuelsohn, have up to an inch at the side seams and center back. By taking a minimum of 1/4" seam allowance this leaves at minimum 2 1/4" in the circumference to let out. There is typically an outlet at the neck to allow for further...
