I've had these for ten years or so now. They're really nice but at this moment in time, I'm thinking I'll put the money into my first pair of Masaru Okuyama. Completely new in box, SL boot bags, with a bag of heels/ vibrams. A folder full of reading material including 3 small booklets. Gorgeous medium brown leather with a better museum effect that I've seen in Lobbs etc. Marked 10D and fits true to size. Here is a used pair being offered for...
I've never tried.
PekingRdHK had some valid points, and from the consumer point of view, if all things being equal, you can deal with the 'maker' and still save money then it's got to be attractive. Of course there are downsides because you are most likely dealing with a technician, not someone who can offer advice on the best way to get the best results for you.

Sure we all know there are downsides, but there are advantages too - everyone has a different set of priorities/ requirements and working with a tailor versus a baotou is a personal decision. I value my Italian tailors work, but would also be interested to know if I can get reasonable facsimiles made locally. To...
Is Yak sturdy enough for trousers?
Right, I'm ready to swap my hackintosh for a 'proper' computer. Office 365 is annoying me with it's slow startup, and seems to only be a OSX problem, the programs work fine on my low-spec'd Yoga Book. Ideally i'd want a updated iMac or even an updated Mac Mini, but neither one of these doesn't seem to be forthcoming soon. Failing that I'd go for a Surface Studio just because it looks pretty sharp, but it doesn't seem to be coming to HK soon. Then I may be forced to buy a...
Not surprised. Wingtip is cr*p.
