I think I have the old EG trees, but whichever, they're great trees e.g. he shallow scoop at the ball of the 'foot' with the hole thru for air circulatioon , and the 2 sprung metal rods (rahter than one).
BTW nice suit! I have one identical in the Slewfoot brown @DavidLane Here's a few shots of ppl in the earlier run - Vox, NewYorkIslander and someone less exalted ..Your run seems to be a drier brown. and imo it's a suit works well with difficult-to-pair chestnut and other light brown shoos. [[SPOILER]]
Hmm, hope this is only for the challenge. Sorry David, don't think this is a good combo. Levels of formality all ahoo. Contrary to Kulata's advice, mine is that the city/country divide is relevant to anyone who want's to understand how to dress well and stylishly. Kulata, Armstrong was a great trumpeter, but sartorial model? I think not. DL, it's a casual suit, so imo treat it as such.
We're talking about Superman here tho. Not a fan of Pagoda, but I admit they do look good on a guy that well-built. Agree the ticket pocket is an affectation (always r imo) but I think the facings are a nice touch.
In the new Guy Ritchie film The man from U.N.C.L.E. Henry Cavill wears bespokke Timothy (Savile Row) Everest suits. He looks fantastic. (It's a period film, 1960s I think). I noticed that rather than displaying unadorned horn buttons, the suit buttons appeared to be faced with the suit cloth.
You might be able to make it out here..
I'm Australian Ac. You do see see quite of bit of glencheck suiting here. BTW Fun fact from the wikipedia article- Cary Grant's iconic ventless suit in N by NW was a gencheck. Most famous suit of all time AFAIK
