Cool - had that in my watch list since it got listed, glad it went to a good home...
More stock dropped into the Inverallan Shoppe.... http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/inverallan2012/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
Thread necro since I took a leap on a couple of these from Yoox - they have some very cheap in their current sale. They are made by Borrelli, and do have exceptional levels of handwork (especially compared to most current Borrelli production) - buttonholes, sleevehead, placket, collar is hand attached etc. The collar is unlined, and they're quite small collars in keeping with the current trend. Fabrics are 'interesting' - the photos on Yoox don't do them justice / allow...
+1 on that - it's about that in London at the moment and I don't need an overcoat at all.
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.
