Do you mean the JLC Squadra Hometime? I like the look of it but it's almost 15mm thick (the Lange is a shade under 10mm) and feels very clunky on the wrist.
I'm thinking of getting a Lange & Sohne Saxonia Dualtime, either in due course new or pre-owned (if available): http://www.thewatchsource.co.uk/images/watches/385026.jpg I love the look and the feel on the wrist, it's a good size for me and seems to be a very elegant way to show a dual time zone. The downside is the cost (£22K retail in London). Any thoughts?
They'll definitely be party shoes - worn with something like dark grey velvet trousers and a dark navy peak lapel one button jacket. The shoes are midnight blue verging on black so hopefully won't be too gangsterish.
Cleverley are making me a pair of stingray wholecuts at the moment and I'm about an 11.5 UK size.
Just bought a suit length of this via my tailor (Meyer & Mortimer): http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/232/london-lounge/london-lounge-char-blue-windowpane Horribly expensive but (a) can't find a heavyweight blue flannel that touches it and (b) price is due to go up on 1 April. Interestingly, Fox didn't give the tailor a discount. I'll have it made into a DB suit over the late summer ready for late autumn.
A Sinn in the sun:
Have just ordered a pair of wholecuts in midnight blue stingray from Cleverley Adam told me they don't like to include the pearl - I thought he said it was difficult to cut through but I don't quite understand why this would be an issue. Anyway, I agree with the view expressed above that it would look tacky.I intend to wear the shoes in exactly the context described below:Winot
Yes, I realise that horses don't have naturally cross-hatched behinds! Apparently Horween will add cross-hatching to any cordovan you want, although it can take up to a year. Cleverley said that they had some midnight blue cordovan in stock (not sure if cross-hatched or natural) and could get other colours e.g. green.
I agree with this - in fact I was in Cleverley today for a fitting of a pair of pigskin double monk ankle boots. I chose pigskin over pebble grain calf because I preferred the nature texture (although I have had pebble grain shoes/boots made before).I also bit the bullet and ordered some midnight blue stingray wholecuts (ouch on the price but I'm confident they will look amazing).Next commission is likely to be a pair of full brogues in the Horween cross-hatch cordovan,...
Fair enough.I am trying to build my shoe collection up a bit more quickly (now that my suit collection is complete*) and one of the slightly frustrating things is that a new pair can't really be started until the old pair are finished. I guess one could reques that a second last is made, or alternatively use more than one show maker, or just have more patience.(*obviously a lie)
