I actually forgot to mention there is another place just off Gloucester Road called Jimmys which sells some misc Saphir stuff, notably the suede spray. He also uses Rendenbach soles for mens shoe repairs -- he's a really nice guy and comes recommended by Hornets staff (though not sure they're as reputable with shoes as they are clothes -- I've seen some pretty crappy shoes there being sold alongside their great suits).
Chelsea Green Cobbler at 31 Elystan Street. He stocks regular Avel cream, and the Medaille D'or wax, cream, renovateur, etc. He has a pretty extensive selection of various brands of polish, cleaners, and brushes. Apparently the biggest selection of shoe care products in London. My sis uses him for her shoe repairs and swears he is good but as a woman she is basically dumb when it comes to shoe repair. Googled for address and came across his twitter if you're...
Those shoes don't fit you. Do you have any other pairs from that brand? I'd look for brands that work for your wonky feet!
Yah it doesn't sound like the other posters are familiar with that adage.Thanks for the Keng Wang link -- some of those look great.To the other poster -- unfortunately, I'm in Vancouver, Canada and popping into a Macy's would require a major flight. The best I can hope for is Holt Renfrew or Harry Rosen -- both of which are very expensive and have a mediocre selection.
Well, that is true, but I don't know exactly what everyone is wearing so it would be difficult to just purchase 5 random ties and hope they match, and only 1/5 actually share my taste so I wouldnt trust that my friends don't go buy dumb shit and look ridiculous in pics (i.e., super skinny or themed ties)
Hey guys, I'm getting married in 17 days and haven't yet bought ties for the groomsmen. I requested they all wear dark suits so am expecting some black, some charcoal, some navy and need a tie which would suit all of them. I ordered some 'wedding' ties from Holt Renfrew in Vancouver, but they were really boring and expensive considering they wouldn't ever be worn again (around 150$ CAD plus tax). I tried a Bluefly and a few other online tie places but they problem is...
I hate the HR salesperson species as a rule.
I believe it is the precursor to Purple Label. I have an old Sartorial blazer which I've subsequently seen re-branded a PL, and have seen PL quality suits with the sartorial markings.
