1) I am not sure I would use Mr. Porter as the benchmark for good customer service. They once sent me a defective item and I had to return it to them 4 times before I was actually sent the correct replacement. It is a large organisation (at least compared to Leffot) and each time you contact them you have to deal with someone new who isn't familiar with the details of your case and are often met with automated email responses rather than a considered response. At least...
+1If you are ordering online (and even when ordering in person), mistakes can and do happen. Ordering from a high-end establishment does not make them immune to human-error, what really matters is the manner in which such-errors are rectified and by your own account it seems Steven is dealing with the situation promptly and professionally. There really was no need to raise something as simple as being delivered the wrong item on this forum unless and until it was clear the...
I used to hate the thought of wearing OTC, but tried a pair out of curiosity earlier this year and have never looked back - i love the clean look that's achieved by them not falling down. Can't bring myself to buy mid calf anymore.
ThisIf the shirt is intended to be worn with a suit, then its impossible to give fully meaningful feedback on the basis of the existing pics you have posted (other than to reiterate that (i) the pocket is too big (I wouldn't have a pocket at all), (ii) the collar is too big and (iii) the waist is too tapered).
I bought a couple of Crombie covert overcoats about 6 or 7 years ago, and they have held up incredibly well and are still going strong. Classically styled, well built winter overcoats that I can rely on winter after winter. That said, at that time they were a fair bit cheaper (around GBP550) and I agree with the above posters who have said that GBP1,000 is probably overpriced (althought they do have sales at the usual times during the year). I also agree that their stores...
+1In the instances I have altered items which are one or two sizes too big, they ended-up not looking great. I've had a trenchcoat taken in slightly from the waist and that turned out absolutely fine.
Love the interplay between colors, patterns and textures on this outfit.Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere on the forum, but may I ask what fabric the sports coat is made from?
Do you have details of the fabric in the first picture, on right? It looks fantastic.
+1, the Chan MOP buttons are some of the best I have seen, and their hand-shanked buttons are a really nice touch.Are you able to tell where to buy TM fabric (as I thought TM don't sell direct to the public)?
NYK - Just in case it's of interest, I have a bunch of T&A shirts in 14.5 that I bought in the sale from the Jermyn st store which I am looking to sell. They are a mix of plain white and blue (all double cuff) with a couple of sea island quality.They're completely unworn but have been washed once (long story short - i bought them in the sale, washed them once to get any shrinkage out of the way before I had a tailor tweak them slightly, but then moved to HK and ended up...
