I have a pair of Comfort Craftsman but I find the heel to be too high for me. Is there a way to slightly shorten the heel without messing up the balance of the shoe? I wonder if anyone else has found this uncomfortable? Compared to Chukkas and to Blundstones (my other boots) I find the RMW heel a bit too much for lots of walking around.
Recently received a calfskin piece from this seller and I'm really liking it. The wallet has a nice slim profile and it's wearing in very well.
Final drop.
Price drop. Let me know if you want them otherwise will get rid of them elsewhere.
I'm having a problem with a Crittenden sport coat (this model: http://www.dann-online.com/crittende..._from_dann.htm) The jacket seems to fit well, but when I move around the cuffs hike up my arms an excessive amount. It's kind of ridiculous--if I just bike a few blocks the jacket cuffs are almost up to my elbow. Even in just normal activity, not biking, it happens a lot too. The sleeve length is spot-on, so that's not the problem. I took it to the tailor here in New...
I picked up a pair of these on the recent yoox sale and they are a tiny bit too narrow for me, so wanted to see if anyone is interested in purchasing them at my cost plus a few bucks for shipping. You can see details and photos here from Yoox: http://www.yoox.com/item.asp?tskay=3...T&sts=orders80 Pics of actual shoes: I would say the color in the Yoox link is slightly more accurate--they are dark not light brown. I tried them on once and did not walk around on...
I picked up a Crittenden sportcoat on Sierra Trading Post a few months ago for about $80. It looks to be the South Beach jacket here: http://www.dann-online.com/crittende..._from_dann.htm -- three patch pockets, working cuffs, light cotton material in blue. I like it, especially for $80. The only drawbacks I can find are that the jacket is a little longer than I'd like and the cuffs seem to ride up a bit, even though the sleeve length seems right. Not sure why that is.
I'd recommend reading this (long) thread by a guy who seems to be knowledgeable and to have thoroughly scouted things out: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntre...readID=1207953 I know it doesn't seem like lonelyplanet's forum would have much tailoring info to offer, but the OP on that thread is very well informed.
Is this sizing the same as the BBBF?
Second the Rimowa. But in my opinion four wheels are an absolute must. Not sure if they make the metal ones with four wheels, but I have two of the carbon fibers with four wheels and they're great: lightweight and pretty durable. I had a couple of problems with one wheel but Rimowa was pretty good about fixing it for free.
