I sent a pair of Park Avenues to Allen Edmonds for recrafting. Unfortunately, I received a call today from the (very nice, as always) representative saying that AE could not recraft the shoes do to wear and age. The uppers are fine, so I was wondering if anyone has had any luck taking AE-rejected shoes to a local repair shop. I'm in DC but am also up in NYC 3-4 times a month.
Just sent a pair back for a recraft yesterday; anyone know the turnaround time right now?
Those 10D Montecito's are a great price at $125.
Overall, I think the fit is good. Certainly the right starting color, and Benjamin is a good entry-level. Like MIC, I'm a little concerned about the shoulders, but I think that may be more of a factor of where your arms are in the photos. Benjamin is generally for a slighter build than you, but if it doesn't feel pinched in the shoulders and underarms I wouldn't worry. On the other hand, if the trousers are tight already, sizing up might not be a horrible...
Well, then they are. Good to know. They must have have changed them, then. I'm looking at my suit, and it has no such label.Absolutely possible. The Benjamin Sartorial line does this for $500 a pop, and it doesn't have close to the economy of scale BB does.
This just isn't true, unless they've changed the construction in the last 18 months. I'm wearing one right now that I bought in late 2011. I'm actually very fond of it, but let's not call it what it's not.
Best workshirts I've ever had.FWIW, there are a couple of clearance ESF luxury, such as this and this. Comes out to about $60 a pop.
I see interns with ties and no jackets all the time. I identify them by the fact they come to work with ties and no jackets.
I think I grabbed mine for around $80. Was a couple years back, however.
