Here are the boots I would like to buy: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=65636206&parentPage=family (RRL livingston leather boot, brown) However, it appears they just flip coins or something to determine what colors of these they will make, or if they will make them at all in a particular month/quarter/year. I don't have time to chase these around. So, who makes a boot comparable to this (or the RRL Bowery boot, etc.) that is actually in their...
I just saw an RS7 at the audi dealer today. Wow. Just wow.
You have to do the rebar. That's the only way. I wouldn't even do a BBQ grill pad without rebar. It's more complicated and epensive, but it's The Right Way and the pad will crack without it. Again, remember that it has to be in the middle (in your case, 2" from the bottom) to work properly. The little props are called "chairs".I think cut joints will be just fine. If you can get them perfectly straight, they look very nice as well. Practice on some other slab...
I think you could probably do that yourself - 600sf isn't that large and it's not rocket science ...If you're already getting the compactor, I would be sure to compact the grade first, unless it was undisturbed and is rock solid. Then compact the road base that you put underneath the concrete.You do need steel, and that's the tricky part - if you don't steel reinforce it with rebar, it's going to crack and it will be much, much weaker. You can look at pictures and guides...
Ok, what about these: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=65636206&parentPage=family Would those work with a flannel suit, or is a lace up boot not a good fit at all ?
Comments on wearing these boots: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Red-Wing-for-Brooks-Brothers-4556-Iron-Ranger-Boots/MH00388,default,pd.html with a thick flannel suit, while in very inclement weather ? Not just cold, but several inches of snow on the ground, etc. I think they look quite good, and the color matches well a grey flannel suit, but the black rubber sole is throwing me off a bit ... So, flannel suit (two or three piece) with a chesterfield style overcoat ......
I'm a bit put off by the thought of a "sack suit", however, I also have a bespoke Samuelsohn - I wonder if Oxxford has similar styling, since they are both somewhat old fashioned american brands ?I am very happy with the Samuelsohn, so if they're along the same lines I have nothing to worry about...Comments ?
Well, the price range of $4000 was what I was told for a MTM three piece suit in middle-of-range fabric choices.I imagine if you chose the lower end fabric book and only made a two-piece suit you might get a price with a 2-handle on it ... not sure.
A year or ... two ... ago ? Wasn't there a styleforum meetup at wingtip ?How did that go ? Were folks impressed with their bespoke tailoring (the things they do downstairs) ?I'd really love to hear from someone who actually had a suit made there ... I think I've read all I need to read about Oxxford suits and their high quality, etc., but I'd like to hear about having a suit made at wingtip ...
Odd that the oxxford website has no catalog or examples ... or anything at all, really: http://www.oxxfordclothes.com/
