My baby camel hair blazer from the EFF event arrived yesterday. It's sooooo soft and fit perfectly right off the hanger. I should have ordered it with the sleeve buttons already finished so I could have worn it to work. Oh well. It's already been dropped off at the tailor.
You've gotten some good suggestions here already, particularly regarding the new snuff suede wingtip boot from Epaulet. I have a pair of those headed my way and looking at the stuff you list as already owning, I think they would make a good addition you your collection as well. I don't think there is anything wrong with having both tan and snuff suede and I think Alden's snuff suede is absolutely gorgeous.Regarding the Roy Boot from Context vs the similar boot from TSM, I...
It's the Seiko bracelet designed specifically for the SARB line, part number "D3A7AB".I saw somebody offering it up on WUS for about $50 so I jumped on it. Honestly though, it's such an improvement that had I thought about it earlier, I probably just would have paid full price through Seiya or Chino or one of the other shops that sell it.
I picked up a stainless bracelet for my Seiko SARB017. I've had the watch for a few years but probably haven't worn it in well over 12 months because the leather strap it came on was a hunk of junk, and I didn't really like it on the thicker, more casual, leather straps or most of the NATOs that I tried so I put it away and sort of forgot about it. I think the bracelet is a huge improvement.
@EP Sam - Awesome news! Deposit has been paid and I cannot wait for them to be on my feet!
Ditto the old t-shirts. If you have a soft old flannel or chamois cloth shirt, those work really well too. I just use whatever soft cotton shirt has met the end of its useful life as a shirt.
I think there's a good reason we don't see that makeup more often.
I think that @bool2gom is interested in a pair of Van-lasted LHS that are in a size 8.0D. Based on the sizes he has experience with and my experience with Tricker's and my EU numbered Vass (I wear a 7 on the Stowe boot and 41 on Vass's "New Peter" last), I advised him that the LHS loafers in 8.0 would probably be a bit small.Does the throbbing SF-brain concur with that assessment?
This is great info. I've tried Epaulet shirts on a few occasions without much success. The problem areas are always the upper arm and (to a lesser extent) the gut. Knowing that these two areas can be adjusted might make me finally give the MTO a try.
