+1. Language barrier can be a factor, but the work is very good.

Very true! It helps to go when his wife is around.

While we're talking tailors, anyone have a great recommendation in LA? Preferably East side

In Philly area I use Guippse's in Abington. Hike, but good.

Second the request. South Bay for me but I'll take downtown/eastside as well.

Between the graphite and various couro cromo trainers, which pair would be most versatile for 4 season wear (I'm in California)?

 

I wear mostly shorts (weekend), dark chinos (grey, navy Rivets, etc), slim khakis (Rivets, Theory) and lighter jeans (no raw or black).

To wear with shorts, I'm thinking the graphite would be the only one that works. 

 

 

The auburn finish does looks amazing.

 

 

 

 

 

Thoughts?

I'd' go auburn. Will pair with most of the stuff you mentioned without problem.

If Fairfax isn't too far west for you, I'm really happy w/ the work I've had done at Mr. Lee's. I've been going for about 5 years now and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Apart from easy things like hems and sleeve adjustments, I've had some pretty intricate work done on things I've taken chances on from eBay and they've turned out great.

No exceptional skill required, just someone reliable and affordable to take-in/taper/hem some cotton Driggs and Rivets.

 

If you come down Wisconsin towards Georgetown, go to Baytok.  No language barrier, pure European professionalism.  His rates are higher, but his quality is perfect.

FYI for anyone looking for size 35 Walts, I have two pairs up for sale - Navy Shetland and Brown Houndstooth (36 taken in a bit).

Fairfax isn't terrible. I'll check them out. Thanks!

I know there've been a few questions about this, but anyone have a report on how much the Cramerton rivets stretch out?

Out of the box they're WAY tighter than my other rivets, even post-wash, such that I'm thinking about sizing up. Hard to imagine them stretching to the same size as my other rivets so it'd be great to get some more input before sending back a pair of worn, stretched out pants back to EP.

Picked up my EFF Southwick suit from the store today and chatted with Mike and fellow SFers. I am thrilled with how the suit turned out and the Lapis Speckle Flannel is just brilliant. It is brighter than navy, looks conservative from a distance, and has a ton of character up close. It also has a great hand and a nice nearly-3-season weight. I really like the change on the lapel from previous Southwick jackets. Got the suit home and threw together an outfit to take a few quick pics. I'll take better shots after I get it altered and am not trying to find the right light in my cramped apartment. 


Also pictured: Individualized Shirts shirt in white royal oxford.

Great character up close. 

 

 

I threw in a shot of the Dornblüth for @EP Sam, who shares the love for fine german watches.

@loxo That is outstanding!! Beautiful fabric!

That Lapis Speckle looked bomb-tastic. Great suit!



One of the last run outs before it gets too warm for the charcoal/infrared flannel of a few years ago.
