I'm planning to order some fabrics from lesser, minnis and smiths - if there is anyone who could assist in getting these at lower prices could you please drop me a pm? Many thanks in advance. Dib
Patrick - didn't you want to wear your first pair for a few weeks to see how the fit settles down with wear before ordering your second pair (e.g. incase any minor adjustments are needed to the last)?
The number of threads I see started about shoes creasing is ridiculous. Shoes made from leather will, and are supposed to, crease. Do you expect your shirts to stay uncreased all day, or your shoelaces to stay tied all day?? When you use things, they will show signs of wear and tear and in many cases, shoes in particular, they look better with such signs of wear and tear.I appreciate this may seem slightly contradictory as I recently posted in another thread about how I...
Awesome knots/dimples, and love the shirt/tie/jacket combos too!
Hmm..not sure, the SC crust leather feels heavier and more substantial to me than the leather on my G&G's or EG's.I'm not sure I agree that EG Top Drawer appeals to people who are attraced by things that don't matter. The main reason I used Top Drawer was because it allowed me to create a design i had in mind that wouldn't have been possible had i gone the MTO route. That said, the result wasn't perfect (in terms of some of the workmanship) which isn't acceptable at that...
Agree with all of this - some of my EG Top Drawers and MTO's have had little problems with them and it's so difficult to get EG to rectify them (presumably because they already have so much work relative to their size).My only issue with St. Crispin's however is the unsightly creasing that can appear on a lot of their shoes (quite prominent ridges on many of the shoes I have seen, including my own). Whilst i'm of the view that if a shoes fits you, then you shouldn't worry...
I think this is exactly what they are doing - technically they are not charging you VAT (hence the line in their T&Cs which says "if you are outside the EU you haven't been charged VAT..."), but are charging non EU customers a higher price so that even with the VAT deducted it equals the same as what EU customers would pay with the VAT included. I do think their terms and conditions could and should be clearer in this respect though.In my experience, the majority of...
Code:This is one of the prime causes of guys being badly dressed: buying things because they are on sale irrespective of (1) whether they fit well, (2) work with other things in their wardrobe, (3) are the right colour etc etc. Never buy something solely, or predominantly, because it is on sale - when you walk down the street wearing it, no one knows what it cost, they just see an ill fitting garment.As a rule of thumb, to try and avoid this problem I try not to buy things...
Does anyone know if Drapers sell fabric direct to the public, and if they do, have any contact details and/or a website address for them? I'm interested in buying some of their fabrics but can't find any info through an Internet search. Dib
TTO - awesome shirt/tie/suit combos. I love the shape you consistently achieve in your knots too. If I may ask, where are the ties from in your fourth to last, and last, photos?
