Quote: It's really nice to see someone passing on a fabulous deal to a fellow SFer. Thanks - I struck a very reasonable deal to take everything on, so there's no point in me gouging anyone...
Just for clarification, the other garments I have from the same estate are; - Dark grey chalkstripe 'flannel' Diamante Blu - Mid / dark grey pinstripe (like a very fine pinhead fabric) Diamante Blu - Very dark blue twill Blanc Blu - Dark blue w/ grey pinstrip Diamante Blu - Dark blue odd jacket Diamante Blue - Dark blue twill odd trousers (although I need to check - these may match the twill suit). All from the same estate, so sizing will be similar...
Quote: although lovely, a 38" waist There's some to let out if that's too small, or you could get it taken in if it's too large. Put it this way, the fabric alone must be ~$500/m so if it's anywhere within the realms of fitting, buy it and find a good alterations tailor!
Now on eBay, listing number 190342849959
There's a couple of good UK watch forums, which you can get good s/h deals on. They're generally focussed the more upmarket brands, but hang around and wait until you see something you like; TZ-UK The Watch Forum You don't mention where you are in the UK, so I'll only deal with online merchants. You may be surprised what you can get on Amazon, and they often have decent sales Amazon 70% off watches Watch Hut also look reasonable, but I've never used them...
I read both. Will's posts are, as others have noted, often rather short, albiet informative. Simon's posts on PS 'suffer' from a number of the same maladies (I'd be a happy man if Will never mentioned Drakes again, nor Simon mention Lodger), but are overall more insightful due to being longer, and to be honest are probably more attuned to someone of my age, income and clothing budget. Being London-based matters somewhat as well - if Simon mentions something interesting...
Well I did quite well today - a pair of Alden oxblood cordovan penny loafers, very lightly worn, £25 / $40.
Just resurrecting an old thread with two updates; 1. Simon Crompton (no relation to me) has provided a photo-documentary of the construction of his Graham Browne suit online, starting here My First English Bespoke Suit 2. Graham Browne are having a sale - £650 buys you a full bespoke two-piece suit (waistcoat an additional £180 if you need one) made from selected bunches. Nothing too fancy, but solid-looking cloth of reasonable quality
Regarding the Kilgour sale I've posted a seperate thread - having been this morning there are some great deals and lots of sizes - I only came away with a pair of dark brown C&J lace-ups for £100, but if I were a little shorter I'd have gone crazy on the sample suits at £200 and jackets at £100. There's a bit of true bespoke thrown in there, presumably uncollected items - there was a suit marked as being made for Carlo Brandelli, which made me laugh...
