Another way to look at it - if fused is the only construction technique offered by the tailor then walk away. If they offer a fully bespoke pattern with fused construction as a lower cost option against fully canvassed then it can be a means to dial in your pattern or experiment with fabrics with less sunk cost.
This. Although if you are set on keeping them, analyse where they are too large. Insoles reduce depth and therefore overall volume. Heel pads address a heel cup that is too large, and tongue pads a shoe which has a lasted instep higher than your foot.
But Ken's the only one who seems to have a space bar on his keyboard; looking so much better for it, like a broken chalkstripe.
On it like white on rice! Also good call on Dugdale - like Luxire, great quality product at a keen price made by people with a passion for their craft.
I launder myself, then send them out for pressing / ironing. That's the part I find hardest to achieve a high standard at.
It's not 'in style' now; it's the sort of thing designed for those who want to stand out a bit.I would recommend sticking with the true classics; something like the Cheaney Kelly (http://www.cheaney.co.uk/collections-c2/classic-collection-c3/cheaney-kelly-black-patent-leather-oxford-dress-shoe-p23) or Shipton's Tamar if you are on a lower budget (http://www.shipton.com/tamar-mens-patent-oxford.html)
I've searched the thread and can't find examples, but has anyone ordered a Luxire 4 button shirt jacket? http://custom.luxire.com/products/4-button-shirt-jacket
Not for those of us paying in GBP...
Yes, quite a lot. Something like 35EUR for the regular and about 100EUR for the three-piece.
