I agree with Ianiceman, but, like EAP, also like the "body"...

I hear what you're saying, but the only thing in common may be the nomenclature -- at least as provided by kolecho. I assure you once you've handled a Vass shoe you'll see that it's not trying to imitate any other shoe. And though I've never worn EGs, I've handled them a few times (yes, I was drooling) and can tell you that at least...

Quote: Originally Posted by Edgar Allan Pwn Thanks for the feedback all. I have a hard time photographing this tie. It is quite loud, but I definitely wouldn't call it "retina-burning" when seen in person. I'd like to ask though, how would you guys try to make it work? Any general suggestions as far as shirt pairing? One for the lurkers . . . you've seen three or four comments about the tie (here and in other threads) and yet you...
Anecdotally, (I have yet to have Nick make my first suit, though he does an extensive amount of tailoring for me), he is the best option in Houston. I introduced a well known SFer to Nick and I believe he agrees that Nick has the chops. Nick has bolts of fabric on site, but more importantly he has rows and rows of books from which you can choose among the best fabrics. He is personally involved with every phase of construction. In fact, you'll often find him at his...

Considering that the shoes don't come with trees, I was very impressed with this method of preserving the shape until the shoes show up and you can insert your own trees. Alan informed me that they're hoping to get trees in the shop soon, but Carmina doesn't offer lasted trees, which, he...

I didn't even get the e-mail. After weeks of checking the site I take a short vacation and wouldn't you know it . . . .

Make sure to view the associated slide show. Interesting photos.
If you're looking for menswear, Capra & Cavelli on 35th between Lamar and Mopac is your best bet, and even stocks boots from Ron Rider. There's another shop called Keepers, which I think has a small location in the Hilton, but is not as good as C&C. A smaller place off Lamar near campus does a fair amount of MTM programs, including Hamilton shirts. I highly recommend them. I don't recall the name of the shope off-hand. On the more casual side, definitely check out...
