It would look odd if it didn't -- the foot is asymetrical, no?

I ordered a Serafin Gevrey-Chambertin on Friday at the cat restaurant because I was wearing my shearling that day and it was fantastic. Chasse-Spleen is a nice lunchtime claret. They used to...

Yes, I agree with that, certainly. But what else would you choose? I'd do jeans, but if I wanted to be more formal... Corduroy sounds wrong, moleskin?

Incidentally, Ede and Ravenscroft have taken over the unit next to their Cambridge branch, which will be an extension. It's not been shopfitted yet, though.
My pamphlet arrived today too. The distressed flannel grey suit is beautiful in person. You don't see too many informal suits around these days, but the puffed edge on the lapels (in the same place piping would be) and the button-over coat collar make this one, I'd say. The windowpane odd jacket is very pretty in person too.

Absolutely. N&L retails at 80UKP per shirt, and are beautifully made. I often buy Ede & Ravenscroft instead, since they're cheaper (50UKP) and almost as good, but N&L is a benchmark for me, for shirts to be worn with suits. I have a N&L shirt built in 1975 which is still going strong and which, modulo the label, is exactly the same as one built now.
The lack of stitching where the welt would be and the lack of a line where any hidden stitching on the sole would be cut-in indicates the soles are glued together. So your price may be a little optimistic..
