Do you have any pictures of his finished shoes? I have yet to see a pair of his shoes that would make me want part with $1500. Admittedly this is a small sample set.Have you considered using Nasser Vies? His website is here. A Toronto Star article about him a few years ago here. His shoes start at around $1000 as of last year.
Leaves, can you tell us a little bit about the custom last creation option? Is this where they create a custom last based on your foot measurements?
Does anyone have any experience with Enzo Bonafe's fur lining? I'm wondering how warm it is and is it durable or does it shed a lot. And is it real fur or some kind of synthetic?
As long as Drew isn't the winner I guess I can live with that if that's our only option.
Sorry for the late reply.Unfortunately I'm the last person you should ask to judge the quality of construction of a suit as I'm pretty much a noob in this area as I've never handled any of the high end brands like Kiton, Attolini etc... or even Pal Zileri.Stan is pretty easy to talk to so if you're interested you can call him up to talk or go down to his shop to look at some in-progress suits. He won't try to schmooze you or use high pressure sales tactics either. His shop...
I asked Stan about his house style and he said that they had none, they'll make whatever you want. I'm sure there must be limitations like being able to properly execute a drape cut or pagoda shoulders which I never asked about.Their lease is up in March or April at which time they'll close up shop. I believe they'll switch to biannual trunk shows afterwards.
Does that customer have an instagram page here? He has a few pieces tagged with the hash tag #mysterytailor. If you scroll to the bottom he's posing for a few fit pictures in Leatherfoot. And the brown window pane sport jacket on Leatherfoot's website makes an appearance here as well.
Thanks razl.Does anyone know how the 325 last fit versus the 348? Same size or go down half a size?And does Purdey use Royal Mail to ship to North America? If it's UPS/FedEx I'll have to bow out.
Is this on the 365 or 325 last?
So you were not hit with customs/duties or taxes(GST) on those other purchases? You paid nothing on arrival?I've received small boxes (cuff links and Inis Meain hat) to large tombstone sized boxes (Leder great Coat) from NMWA and have always been hit.
