Aberdeen and Trubalance are opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of fit. I like the Aberdeen in the 666 Tassel Loafer but have a loose heel in the 403 Indy. I have a perfect fit in the Hampton last. Barrie is definitely a good last if you size down 1/2 and don't have an exceedingly narrow foot (for a D width).Do you have a local Alden store where you can try a pair before you buy?
Easy alteration for a tailor - I do my own alterations, and this is a very easy process.
Just ordered two for spring/summer, one for the remaining winter (should I get it lined instead of 3/8??): Bright Blue Large Pique Suiting Sportcoat Style: Double Breasted, Natural Shoulder Double Vented Rear (Side Vents) Button Color: White Mother of Pearl Pocket Styling: Welt Breast Pocket, Hip Inset Flap Pockets Sleeve Finish: Functional buttons (Surgeon's Cuffs) Sportcoat Full or Partial Liner: Partial (3/8) Lining Lining Fabric: Blue Stripe Tobacco...
VA gets a little chilly, you should be fine. If I recall correctly, flannella is a little thinner than flannel. There were Walts a season or three ago that were flannella and were presented as a Fall/Spring weight of flannel.
That was me - I'll enjoy What else to get......
Would be in for an NST in that grained country calf leather with Commando Sole...
I have ordered thru my local tailor shop with 0 tie space, so it is possible to change that parameter. Some of the IS options are "hidden" and must be requested.
I always thought they were on Barrie for some reason. That must be why the unlined bluchers in 12D fit better. I just thought it was a lined vs unlined thing.So, does anybody want brand new 1492 dark brown chukkas, size 11.5D, in a slightly beat up box (with Alden shoe bags) for $400 before I return them to the retailer?
Unlined Suede Chukka question - do you size up 1/2 size for them? I have unlined bluchers and unlined penny loafers, but both are 12D (Barrie and Van). Otherwise I'm an 11.5D Barrie, 12C Van, 12D Hampton, 12D Aberdeen when models are lined/structured. Trying to decide whether to keep a pair of 11.5D unlined chukkas in 11.5 or size up to 12D. The are VERY tight now, and probably won't stretch out much... Thanks for feedback
Dry clean the wools - there are websites out there that will tell you what to do if you need to spot-clean wool with something (I've used corn starch to remove oil from a pair of wool Walts).Linen is a very tough fabric. Again, look at a website on how to get something specific out of linen. I vaguely remember getting coffee on a linen shirt and used a specific ratio of warm water to vinegar (?) for a soak, then scrub, then launder and it worked great. The shirt was/is...
