Just waxed a pair of selvedge denim jeans tonight using a bar of Otter wax. They are curing and I will wear them tomorrow and see how they come out.
Funny, I bought almost the exact same Corneliani jacket yesterday at a consignment shop on Melrose. Same color, micro suede but the inner chest panel where it zips is slightly different. I think it will be a very versatile addition to the wardrobe.
Amar, Allez l'OM! I haven't seen that logo since I lived in Aix-en-Provence many, many years ago. Supergenius
Just for clarification, are ACs being discontinued by Cleverley or just no longer being sold at Leather Soul?
The "traditional" big 3 are Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin. Breguet, A. Lange ans JLC are up in that realm as well. I'm sure this topic will generate lots of discussion.
I know Hugo Jacomet recommends them highly. May have to give them a try...
Subscribed, also.
To clarify, Lanvin offers both true bespoke and MTM. I had heard they would be offering "bespoke" services at their new Madison Ave. men's boutique, so I contacted them. M. Julien Fouache at their 15 Rue Faubourg location replied that true bespoke is only offered at the Paris location and starts at 6900 Euro. In New York one can get a MTM suit, starting at $3700 USD. I then had some correspondence with M. Francois Ulloa at the NY store to clarify what one gets in MTM...
I personally like hacking pockets and have been commissioning my jackets with them as of late. I think they look fine in your pic.
I don't think anyone ever answered the question about Lanvin - is their bespoke service up to the same standards as Cifonelli or CdL?
