Also interested to know more - do Trickers still have a reasonable selection and pricing?
A tale of two different victories; On the way to the stores, I popped into a supermarket for a loaf of bread and came out with a case of Gonzalez Byass 30-year old soleras (Apóstoles, Del Duque, Noë) at $7.50/bottle instead of $35/bottle... And then I found a lovely D'Avenza sportcoat in a light grey pick'n'pick fabric. It was tagged a 44R, but measures out at more like a 40R/L, so I'm happy!

An amazing pair of RLPL carpet slippers
I recently purchased these hoping they would fit, but they run too small for me. As a reference point, I'm an 11 in the Alden Barrie last, and I'm guessing these are a size smaller than that. I'll add sole measurements when I can find the tape measure. They are a pair of true bespoke shoes by Wildsmith of St James, from 1979 - the point when Wildsmith were one of the better bespoke makers in London. This means they're probably fully handmade. They have a 360-degree...
Don't forget Cleverley in the Royal Arcade. If you're in the area, it's worth popping in to John Rushton shoes on Wimpole Street. If you have the time for a fitting you could visit Frank Foster and order some shirts? Perhaps some stationery from Smythson on Bond St?
