Stunning Brioni suit made for Wilkes Bashford SF Fabric A slightly mottled charcoal grey with a windowpane comprising a central faint cream pinstripe between a pair of even fainter light blue stripes - as you can see from the photos, this resolves to a single windowpane. It's 92% wool and 8% cashmere, and as per Brioni has the most fabulous hand to it. Styling Single breasted two button with double vents and straight flapped pocketd. Very recently made so styling is...
Tip Top in Brooklyn is a good place to start. IF you don't have a tailor yet you are better advised to find one first, they may suggest or require you get the first suit made from their fabric. Indeed not all tailors offer CMT (Cut, Make, Trim with your fabric) so it would be a shame to buy something and then not be able to use it.
Glaser make custom organisers to go inside their bags, they would probably make one for whatever bag you already have?
I don't think they do. They used to have one online until a year or so ago, and then they started selling a few seconds at their Lime Street shop / concession in the City of London.To my understanding that concession is now closed and the only stock available to the public is firsts from the Piccadilly Arcade store.
And their cloth is great, and reasonably priced (without agent markups) - just funded English Classics 9427:
I think the description is wrong. Does that not look more like the Simpson last? Plus it says a double leather sole which is clearly not the case.
I hope this is OK, otherwise I'll take the post down: I ordered some Carminas in the Hackett sale but then tried some on in store and sized up instead. I have the following all in size UK10, which I'd be happy to proxy on to anyone for what I paid plus courier fees to you / any transaction costs e.g. Paypal. All are brand new boxed with bags. If there's no interest I'll return them to the store for a full refund: Pebblegrain split toe country derby on a lugged rubber...
These are handmade shoes, and very reasonably priced for handmade shoes. Imperfection is perfection. I think you've got to live with those sort of issues - I see nothing that can't be cured with a decent polish and a walk of a couple of miles. Edit to add - unless the leather has cracked at the welt. That should be fixed.
CMT order coming in before 1 July then - I've just been through my stockpile and quite a few liabilities are going to get funded, I've got some great vintage flannel and some deadstock Thomas Mason shirting...
I've had this for about 18 months after commissioning it from Mark at Gizzi Leather (www.gizzi-leather.com) but it's not been used as much as I'd expected so perhaps we can find a new home for it? Fully hand-cut and hand-sewn using traditional saddlery stitching in the same way as Swaine, Adeney & Brigg used to. The leather is of good quality and will develop a great patina with use. It's designed as a large single-compartment case to hold a laptop and paperwork. Overall...
