Do they take shipped shoes? Only hesitation I have with this is that I'm afraid what I want done won't get translated well over the phone/thru email. I much prefer talking face to face and being able to show what I want...

Well they are Uniqlo so it's not a huge loss if it gets botched. Do you know how it's done? Is it the same process but they just cut excess fabric from the thigh area? I wonder if they can just place a dart on the side of the thighs and not have to take apart the seams.

hey does anyone know a more affordable version of borsalino's straw panama hats?  would like to get one similar but the 200 dollar price point is a bit much to swallow for me..

FWIW, that's often a good thing with Panama hats. Don't know where Borsos are exactly made, but the best Panamas come from Ecuador. Cheap ones are from China.

I'm almost positive FJ Western does, as @eckblk apparently does so, but he's a longstanding customer so it may be an exception.

Should hold on shipping anything to them. They haven't picked up the phone the last two days despite generally being open on those days. Might be on vacation. eckblk is investigating smile.gif and im periodically calling them still.

Yeah I was going to call them before I shipped anything off. I just dropped off my Daytons at bennies for a full resole so we will see how it goes. I care more about my visvims more than those so I may end up shipping those off in the next year once the soles have worn more. Just hard to get the vis silhouette right cuz the soles visvim uses aren't available and the alternatives are slightly off.

Thanks for the help y'all. It makes me wonder how anyone can be interested in nice shoes/clothing outside of Cali and NY if Atlanta sucks at this shit.

There's a panama hat store on ebay selling hats direct from ecuador at affordable prices. I haven't ordered from them but I've considered it. http://www.ebay.com/usr/panamahatshop?_trksid=p2053788.m1543.l2754

It helps if your town used to have a suit factory and now there's a dozen former suitmakers scattered throughout the area with their own tailoring shops.

What is Basco?

I see it around but know nothing of it, for some reason I always thought it was some kind of in-house Barney's line. This seems pretty much perfect but have no clue on fit/quality etc.

EDIT: Wrong thread, and yeah, Barney's in house label.

There are several decent Panama sellers. I believe Borsalino use Tesi to block their Panama's - RMR in Italy sells Tesi : http://www.rmr-hats.com/Shop-Summer-hats-3-0.html
