Bought my first pair of EGs today from Saks while in NYC for business. Got the Ashby in the 606 last - not sure what the official color name - but its a browninsh color between medium brown and dark brown. This was the last one left on sale in my size - $550 marked down from $1050 less 10% for opening a Saks account and I had it shipped to my home in PA to avaoid about sales tax. I think it'll be something like $505 out the door. I'll post pics once I get it next...

I wore this tie 4 or 5 times. I checked and did not see and stains or flaws. Bought it before I understood color theory as described in Flusser's book. Though many pooh-pooh Flusser - his theory makes a lot of sense from my experience. This tie just doesn't work for my Indian high-contrast complexion! I don’t have any other ties from this brand and don’t know much about it. It seems well made: Made in Italy, 100% silk, NOT self-tipped, but does have a...

Ties are also a good value at $30, and the remaining Chester Barrie suits are a steal at $700. I expect 42s and 44s to have the best luck. Overall,...
I have the Tellmans in a 10. With the elongated last - I have room in the toe area, but they basically fit me well everywhere else. For refernce I am a 10D in AEs and Aldens and a 9.5E (UK) on the single pair of C&Js i have (Westfields).

Heavily discounted at Saks (paid $550). I love the shoe, but just curious what is most appropriate to wear them with. They had two other EGs as well, including a suede cap toe (sorry, don't know the name/last#) in a 10.5 D for right around $500. Gorgeous but a bit too...

I am very satisfied with their shirts - so I have never really pressed the point. This may be a case of: if one is paying $220 for a shirt, one will trust the judgment of the tailor; if one is paying $75 - one tends to question more!
Quote: Originally Posted by raley I picked side pleats and asked for a split yoke. He had no idea with a split yoke was. I tried explaining, and showed him the split yoke on my shirt, but he still was confused. I told him to forget about the split yoke. I've been buying custom shirts at Barton & Donaldson in Philly. Their position is that the split yoke and pleats are needed for RTW shirts so that they are more "flexible" - but...
Quote: Originally Posted by NoVaguy slightly better leather, different lasts, and a channelled sole. generally, the handgrades will look much more sleeker than the benchgrades (although the 348 last is a benchgrade last and is very sleek). beyond that, no functional difference (although the uppers might last longer). The HG have full leather linings (which is a functiondal difference - I think) and the corner is nicked off the heal (which is...
Forgot to mention - that I got a 9.5E (UK) in the Westfields and a 10D (US) in the Polos. The Polos are a tad bigger (but not unacceptably by any means) - because they are made on a longer last with a sligtly squared toe. But that is my size conversion info for anyone interested.
