Thanks for the heads up on Benedetti's--just grabbed a pair of Alden Shell Cordovan #8 PTB's for $295. Not sure if this is a regular sale, but I also went by RM Williams and got a pair of Wentworth Yearling in Chestnut for $300 down from $380. Know these can be had for cheaper on the net, but I thought it was an okay price for their official store.
Look great, PM sent about 25.
I recently had a suit made from a Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric described as "Wool and Summer Kid Mohair". They're extremely light, feel super comfortable, and work very well in warm weather. I love the pants so much that I'm contemplating having some more pants made in different colors or perhaps finding a RTW pair of pants made from a similar type of material. A couple of questions: -Is there any reason not to use this material for stand-alone pants--is it...
Thanks for the info, guys. Going to grab them tomorrow if they're still there.
Contemplating a first purchase of some Aldens. Don't have $600 to get what I want but just tried on a pair of the Shell Cordovan Plain Toe Bluchers Model 990, Barrie last, that fit well and were on sale for half price. This is the shoe: http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._cordovan.html Is there anyone who has these shoes and can offer thoughts on what you commonly wear them with, whether you love them, etc.? Could they be worn with a suit or are they too...
Thanks for the info.
Anybody have experience with these boots? http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP..._color=Cognac# Looks like a good deal if they're good quality. One other question: would they be okay to wear with a suit?
La Merenda, in Nice, is a fabulous tiny restaurant with amazing Nicoise food. They have no phone and only take same day reservations for the evening if you walk in during the day. The chef left the Negresco to open this place. La Merenda 4, Rue de la Terrasse No Phone
Here's a very good post that does a detailed analysis of tailoring in Bangkok by someone who seems very knowledgeable. Weird that it's on Lonely Planet's forum. Anyway, here it is: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntre...ageID=10459121 Worth a thorough read through for an overview of Bangkok tailoring. I got some shirts made from Milan Suit, which is mentioned in that post, and found some to be excellent, others so-so. Shirts are around 1200 baht, which is about $35. If...
Quick question from a newbie to this forum. I did some searching but couldn't find an answer to this question. I would like to wear boots with a suit I have. Can someone explain the intricacies of getting the proper break for a boot vs. a dress shoe. I am assuming they will be different enough (boot break is shorter, no?) to merit additional tailoring and that once I commit to the boot break and wear them that way I won't be able to go back to the dress shoe break if I...
