Dear All, I have commissioned my first bespoke item, from Cicco Tailors in Butler PA. I have just had the first fitting, where a canvas was covered with some left over material for fit purposes. The images are given below. I acknowledge that the shoulders are a little overpadded, and will be reduced. I have asked for a soft, more natural shoulder with a "shirt shoulder". This should reduce the divots. The breast plate will be reduced to make the front a bit more...
^ Thats a great fit. Any idea of how much Pasquale charges for bespoke? What was the rough cost to re-cut the suit?... that a lot of work. I dont mean to be rude and query the price, but I'm curious. Feel free to PM a response, if thats more appropriate.
Im in. best of luck to all
I happen to be in Spain, and I went to the Meermin store. The shoes are indeed impressive. The store is untouched by any protests, the protest were minor actually. Went by our hotel.

So, I got the Presidio's in burgundy and there is quite a bit of heel slippage, even though I ordered 'my size' in that last. Any advice? Can I use a tongue pad or insert to alleviate this problem? Should I size down, even though the toe box feels fine?
Hey man, not everyone has the figure of Arnold.Being a short skinny guy myself, its hard to conform to the 'normal mans' measurements.Work with a good tailor and get the most flattering clothes.As for the other comment, I think its a bit harsh to postulate that the OP is out of shape. This might be the case, but some people have different bone structure, and he may have a smaller chest circumference. A 33" waste on a tall thin person might not reflect a lack of physical...
Does anyone know what the AE Weston is? I can't find pics of it anywhere, but its on sale... Any help is appreciated
While I see your point that the brown edge looks natty, I'd be worried of destroying a perfectly good shoe. I vote leave em alone and wear in good health. The Macneils are a beauty
To the OP: Please do let us know how you make out... Im in the same boat as you.
^^ Glenjay: those are great... what model of AE are they?
