That one seems to be a solid purple, whereas I think the one referred to in this post is both purple and grey....
Browsing through this thread (and elsewhere on the forum) I've seen lots of references to the grey/purple cashmere Drakes tie yfyf has. I've spent ages searching trying to find images of this legendary tie, to no avail! Would anybody have pictures of the tie in question being worn?
This is very true. I have been using one of the well known HK tailors for a few years, slowly refining the product and producing progressively better garments with each commission. In addition, I really enjoy working with the team and spending time at their store flicking through books of cloth, talking to the tailors, discussing tweaks to my pattern etc.That said, a few days ago I was walking past one of the other well known HK tailors and decided to go inside and take a...
It looks nice, simple and classic on the leather strap. I strongly agree with those who have said it looks tacky with the gold - stick with the leather!
I'm not sure if they typically stock that material, I don't think that changes the analysis though. EG is a shoe maker who is prepared to entertain custom orders from the retail public, as well as larger retailers. In certain instances they are also prepared to use specially sourced materials (indeed, they have sourced one off materials for individual retail customers in the past, for example, when ordering through their Top Drawer programme). The mere act of utilising...
The last and style are existing EG designs/styles, there is absolutely no way on earth EG is going to give up the IP rights in those lasts/styles (which it has been using for years, and which it will continue to use) to someone because they have ordered 100 pairs of them. EG only has a limited number of lasts/styles, they are the bread and butter of its business, there is no way they would surrender IP rights in these (and neither would they need to do so in order for...
Leffot's website stated they had a limited edition of 100 of these shoes, each one hand numbered. To the extent they have 100 of these made up and have paid for them then I agree, these would belong to Leffot. The OP wasn't seeking to buy one of the limited edition, individually numbered, shoes made for Leffot though - they were trying to order the same spec via the MTO programme. Again, none of us on this forum will know whether EG and Leffot had an agreement between them...
Well, I was replying more to the assertion/general proposition that the poster had made that private companies are free to do as they please. I was just trying to point out that as a general proposition this is wrong.I agree though, if EG was legally prohibited from selling the shoes (e.g. because they had an agreement to that effect with Leffot) then that would complicate the analysis slightly. Again, without meaning to get too legalistic, even if there was some sort of...
This is a little harsh, no? The vast majority of people shop around before making significant purchases. The OP emailed two retailers to ask them for prices and opted to go with the one charging almost $500 less - does that really make him a cheapskate for wanting to save $500? Admittedly he had already agreed to purchase from Leffot the day before, but if their ordering policy allowed him to cancel the order the next day, then I'm not sure what the OP did wrong by...
Wrong. Private companies still have to operate within the law of the land(s) in which they operate. Whilst I don't want to get bogged down in the legalise of this, once the OP had paid his deposit to EG he had a contract with them under UK contract law, the fact EG is a private company etc is irrelevant here.Likewise, retailers/service providers in the UK cannot discriminate against people if they want to...there are laws against that too.
