From what I understand most "bamboo" isn't actually bamboo fiber the way we think of it but instead is poly made from bamboo materials. A search on bamboo fiber will probably...

Mine are Church, quite OK for what they are, but Church apparently stopped making that model a long time ago. Are we talking GY welt only? I saw a pair of patent Ferragamo's last weekend at NMLC, did not look closely to see construction method. I know a few of the...
Yoox sometimes has sz34 jackets/suits

Oy, tried on a pair of Zegna XXX double monks yesterday... perfect damn fit. OK price too (about half MSRP) but I don't really need them nor have the spare cash. Still I have a deal about to close and I may have to buy them for myself as a treat if they are still available then.
Just purchased/received a coat from WhateverYouLike, great communication, fast shipping, and item as described. Would definitely conduct business with him again.
Just arrived Looks good/as described. Fits nicely if a little long in the body and needs some serious press/steamer love.

I just tried a Hickey suit jacket on today (HF fit me like a box) and it was a perfect fit. I'm just not a drop 7... who the F has a 29" waist?

If it helps here are a few sz36 models that were too long for me but fit my 17" shoulders: RLBL Anthony ZZeg no model listed Roda...
