Size up. I'm a typical 38 and found the 40 Inverallan a better fit.Size up. I'm a typical 38 and found the 40 Inveralla
What do you plan to wear it with- does the scotchgrain drop the formality down a notch?
No, it's an input tax so everyone pays it, the tailor can claim back the tax on the fabric / anything else he purchases but has to charge 20% sales tax on the finished item.Having said that many individual tailors are too small to have to register for VAT (82k turnover) so pay tax on inputs but don't charge it on outputs / sales.
Inverallan have just uploaded lots of stock to their eBay store: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/inverallan2012/m.html?item=301722991295&hash=item4640177abf&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Good BIN prices
+1 - SG rain can be pretty intense but cordovan is a robust product and if you have cordovan uppers and a rubber sole (e.g. dainite) you'll have no problem with adverse weather. Just let them dry out slowly away from a heat source, use trees and make sure you store them somewhere with airflow so you don't get any mould growth.
They're 9oz so not what I'd consider mid-weight, depends exactly where you live.They are soft, with a great handle. I can't comment on how quickly it wears having only had it for a few months. I will say the creases drop out fairly quickly.
If you 'Search This Thread' using the link at the top of the page you'll find at least a few visit reports, but in my experience they'll have a good selection of classic models (both on the more traditional lasts and F / U) across all sizes and a number of leathers / colours.However, if you go in expecting a specific last / colour / size you may be disappointed. A mail to Rezso will confirm what they have in stock today in your size, or if you're visiting in some while you...
@Luxire any word on the other colours you have in this, especially tan / other light shades?
It's just museum calf. Others are being more diplomatic but my view is museum calf is not of equivalent quality to the leathers otherwise used by Vass or other premium makers. It's somewhat thin and can display inconsistencies such as that above.
Does @Luxire have this fabric in a tan colour? Would be a great option to add if it's not already on the site, I have Gieves & Hawkes tropical pants in a tropical wool with a similar pattern I grey and tan and love them.
