As far as I know, Loake doesn't make Peal shoes.

Even if you decide to purchase OTR, HK has an excellent selection and prices are close to U.S. prices (differences are marginal, IMO). Even if you choose to buy in advance of your move, I assure you that eventually you will be tempted to try the tailoring route, so I would do it now. I suggest starting with one...
Nordstrom slim fit shirts are underrated and are a decent value during their sales or at Nordstrom rack.

She believes her items speak for themselves, and I couldn't imagine her "requiring" anything that the customer didn't want. Huge range of colors, hides, etc., completely done by hand (no glue, no machines.) saddle stitching, and absolutely top-level leathers used. More pricey than...

I had heard of their declining quality when I bought mine, but am now curious where it was made.
Quote: Originally Posted by rach2jlc I've heard this before, and continue to be amazed by it. I'm so surprised that they'd be willing to lose a sale just because they want to stick their logo on the front. That would be a deal breaker for me, as well; I'd rather the item speak for itself, without that ugly logo on front. I briefly considered Glaser when I was on the hunt for my bespoke piece, but wasn't thrilled with the selection or types of...
While we're at it, I'll put in my order for a pair of made black pebble grain v cleat wingtips as well.
Having visited the Glaser Designs showroom, I can vouch for their excellent quality and workmanship and very fair pricepoint. The issue I had was the logo. I didn't want a bag with a logo and they would not make one for me without it. So I passed. I have to also mention that I purchased a ballistic nylon work bag from Hartman at a huge discount almost 10 years ago. I figured it would last a couple of years. I have carried it nearly every day for the last decade and...

Typically you are owed the money in the manner you paid with, exception being large purchases. If you paid 4500 cash for a purple lable suit at a smaller market store, they might not keep that much cash on hand in the store (very few people paying with cash these days, their daily deposits must be small). They would have to mail you a check....
