Great seller, great to deal with
Very awesome collection in here!
Hey, glad to see there are others from Ottawa on here as well. Most of the places have already been mentioned save a couple of small boutiques that come to mind right away for me - Morgante on Sparks and Vernini Uomo in the St.Laurent Centre. Morgante carries all the usual suspects - Canali, Boss, Cavalli, etc. They also carry Canali, AE and Boss Orange shoes. Haven't been in that store in quite a while. Vernini is definitely all over the place when it comes to style....
Isn't there a similar style but without the laser that G&G makes? I can't seem to find my catalog at the moment, but I seem to remember something along those lines. Otherwise, do an MTM with G&G and it'll be close to the price of a Lobb RTW. At least, last I checked

I agree with those that said there really aren't any real benefits. Maybe structurally it helps, but if a shoe is cemented and edge-treated properly it doesn't even need to be stitched at all. Traditionally, though, especially in wetter climates, it's a good idea. The origins of the channeled stitch could have involved stitched aloft shoes allowing water to seep in through the seams, but that is merely speculation on my part.
I just checked and it seems to load fine for me. I've put the files on my server for reliability, so let me know if the problems persist. Otherwise, as nerdykarim said, there is a copy of it on the SF wiki at http://styleforum.pbwiki.com/photoessay D

The stitching was done in a way that left larger, more visible holes. 2. More importantly, the edge dressing was not done nearly as nicely. Bea's look like they have just beeen wax polished over time while Fleming's look kind of gooped on. I use the Fleming's belt more with cords which goes along with your...

I have never seen a belt that comes close to the quality of April in Paris, and the Fleming belt while OK is at least five steps below. I think even more than just quality, there is a large difference in the type of belt that they make. Fleming makes more of a Western-style belt - just a straightforward strap with a buckle made...

There are some sources online, though only two that I know and trust by reputation: http://houseoffleming.com/ and http://aprilinparis.us Though if you're from Ottawa, there is an atelier in town (disclosure: my company) that makes entirely handmade stuff.
