Its not just varied by designer, even within the Tom Ford range i wear sizes ranging from 8.5 to 10.5. It depends on the model of shoe you are looking at. The best thing you can do is try and find a store that stocks them and try them on there before buying online, and this is not just because of different markings due to EU vs US sizing, i bought a pair of oxfords from the NYC store and i fit into a 9.5, from the same store i have a pair of loafers that i needed a 10.5...

The general consensus is that it can't. Technically they can be lowered because they just cut away fabric, but to raise it would mean filling in empty space. I have met some people who say it can be done but i usually waive that off to misunderstanding of what i was asking.

There are some huge price differences in the brands you mentioned lol, i think borrelli starts at like 5 grand now?, and j press is like 3 grand?. Also to add to your list maybe try Isaia (not sure how soft their shoulders are since making a push for the american market), Kiton, and Attolini. The Borrelli shoulder looks a bit weird to me, i know its like unpadded yada yada, but it has this weird squarish shape i cant really describe. Who knows that might just be my...

It was a thread on here about how sometimes the crazy discounts during the recession where you would be able to find Brioni, Kiton, etc for like 75% off, there comes a point where you are paying less than the actual cost of the fabric. Btw pure vicuna would be wayyyyyy more than $800 a meter.....Btw love the blog. Especially the "all natural" pics of a young sophia lauren

Its just that jacket, tom ford suiting which is what comes up the most for these topics starts at about $3200 last time i checked in about october of last year. Its still quite a stretch but doesnt sound as bad as starting from 6500 lolEdit: i just read the second part of your post. I have like 15 shirts from tom ford, i think at least half of them i bought at full retail from their madison store but have never seen prices like that. I mean ok they were like 300-500 but...

As i say every time i read or hear this. Bespoke might not get you what you want, even though its custom they do tend to have a house style. You wouldnt go to rubinacci or steed for a strong shoulder suit would you? Second real bespoke or even good custom might not be available in places where some people are located. If it wasnt for traveling tailors i would have never tried naples and saville row bespoke. Third and maybe this doesnt apply directly to Tom Ford but for...
