Edmond - What's the fit like on your Loakes? I'm sure there's a thread around here somewhere, but since it seems you own a few... I typically wear a 10.5 or, more rarely, 11 medium in US sizes.

Suits on sale were about 1/3 off when I bought them, as were the sportjackets. Also... when I was in there last week, most shirts and ties were 50% off. I think he's clearing space for the new stuff he's expecting to arrive soon. The shirt quality is ok -- there are certainly better quality shirts...
I've lurking around SF for a few months. This post prompted me to join and reply. Since March, I've made a few purchases @ Phil's: a couple of sportcoats and 2 suits on sale back in the Spring, and, more recently, a few of the newer suits he just got in from Italy, where he gets everything made. I don't know exactly what you mean by "extremely fitted", but his line fits me well and I prefer slimmer-shaped cuts (I'm 6 feet tall & 175 lbs). Some of his newer stuff...
