That's two patterns already. Shirt looks a little rustic, almost like a tattersall, which is an interesting combo with the pinstripes. That notwithstanding I'd pair a solid tie with it in one of the colours of the shirt check, but perhaps something with a bit of surface interest like a grenadine?
Tusting is good solid quality - prices seem to be creeping up but they are robustly made and wear well. Not a massive fan of the pre-antiques hardware. The Kudu suede leather is very good, I'm less keen on some of the waxed leathers but it's personal preference and they are hardy. Overall the leathers won't take on as much character with age as those from some other brands.Goldpfeil quality is variable - that bag doesn't look bad but would sell for perhaps a third of that...
That should clean up fine - Myron Glaser reccommended using Nivea. It's an excellent price.
SoSorry - both UK sizes
Yes, standard Cleverley models are made by C&J. No-one seems to know who makes the Anthony Cleverley models, and they look like nothing else I have seen on the market in construction terms.I am an 11 in the EG 888 and a 10.5 in Cleverley if that helps.
I ordered some AC recently from LS, waiting for them to arrive. Do be aware the stocklist may not be up-to-date, I was advised they had very heavy demand. I'd be fascinated if anyone knows why LS just dropped Cleverley and are selling off the models super-cheap? They've taken down all their blog posts about them, and I may be imagining it but I sensed some snark in their recent description of a pair of St Crispins (my emphasis): "Hand lasted, hand welted, and hand...
I have two of these, but short of losing one it'll last a lifetime so I may as well move the other one on. This is a stunning grained leather folio, made in Brussels by the luxury Belgian leathergoods maker Delvaux. Most of their production goes straight to Japan - the quality is impeccable but they are just not so well known as Hermes. The entire folio was hand saddle-stitched (pebble leather outer, suede inner for the flap) and then carefully finished with a matching...
Looking to get back what I paid on a couple of impulse-purchse Drakes ties that I'm unlikely to wear. Both measure 57" long, the shantung is 2.5" wide and the skiiers 2.75". Dark blue shantung with embroidered white Swiss dots. Purchased from Mr Porter, will come with the box if buyer is willing to pay the shipping cost. SOLD Dark blue skiiers print (in an off-white / light tan colour). Purchased direct from Drakes. £40 each including shipping in the UK; Europe or...
No, those are just normal Trickers stock.
I have a couple of Glasers, they are phenomenal bags, and great people to deal with. They are pretty much all MTO hence no, there is never a sale.I think if the workshop is quiet Myron and the team will run up a couple of classic models to have in stock; wait times may vary depending on what you want, at times it's been a number of months.Really, the best thing to do is give them a call - they are very generous with their time and will give you the most accurate answer....
