I have wide feet so I take the same size in both but I've heard others size down one for achilles (or size up one for derbys depends how you look at it).

I actually think small starts at 4 for men because 1 2 3 are women's sizing.

ask him why he develops his own textiles when there are mills out there, including ones with multigenerational knowledge, that spend all their time developing fabrics and that produce some very nice stuff. i suspect it's just because he has a particular textile in mind that doesn't exist otherwise, but would be interesting to hear his thoughts.

I have the cadet derbies and went with my achilles size.

Ask him about synthetic fabrics and why he chooses or doesn't choose to incorporate them in certain fabrics.

Ask him if he's offended that I thought his name was "Stephen" until maybe a couple of months ago.

Wait, no, don't ask that, it's embarrassing.

Excellent RFT from my brother (background - our parents live in upstate NY, and I had suggested one of the scarves from Blackbird as a possible gift for our mother):
Quote:
All of those scarves are some shade of the all-enveloping darkness of upstate NY. A darkness that one, upon the understanding that upstate NY is the answer and the destiny, will try to mask or otherwise wish away through whatever means necessary. The scarves themselves represent the cold dark night of detachment and silence through the never-ending winter. They are city scarves, scarves from where the dirty dark people cramped next to one another with their noise and their light dwell. The scarves are evil and are depressing. It is not the bleak solitude of nothingness in the midst of nowhere that is depressing, but rather the multitudes of the slovenly packed up against one another with their brash yelling and unending lights and quarrels. The scarves are to be banished to their evil city place and to be replaced by good things, happy things. Nice things for the nice people.

If you look at the care tags on all his clothes, you'll notice the percentages don't add up. 95% wool, 3% cashmere, then nothing. 2% that's unaccounted for. Well, as it turns out, that 2% is the reason Schneider eschews mills that have been around for generations, the reason he has to develop fabrics himself. Because everything he makes contains 2% love.

made me think of this:

RFT: I put in an order yesterday for a pair of the black angled seam cotton/cashmere MMM denim that I had been eyeing all season long. Got them for 50% off, and it really does feel good to wait till your number. I loved the look of them (there isn't much to hate; black twisted seam jeans) but I set a price in my head at which I thought they were worth, and $275 was that number. Can't wait for em to come in.
