Out of town for a bit... couldn't get a good snap before I left. Will do so shortly.

Hi there, I am looking at getting the Farringdon - just having a sizing question.

I am normally a size 37-38 in pretty much everything but am wondering if it would be prudent to size up (to 40 in this case) if I plan to wear it over a suit jacket?

 

Thanks..

My guess is that it would be sized to take account of that, i.e. if you wear a size 38 suit, get a size 38 overcoat/mac.

That is my 'gut feel' also, can any armourer spare a minute to reply? :-)

Correct, I've always ordered the same size overcoat as suit and have never had a problem.

^ Spoo -- same model and last as your favorite black Carmina shoes? Just curious... do you notice any differences in the leathers between the two pairs (I believe the brown is vegano and the black is box calf)?

Nice pic btw!

Yes, same pair. A shoe so nice, I bought it twice. The black ones are a bit stiffer, these seem a bit softer in the break in period.

You have likely mentioned it previously and elsewhere, but how does the CJ 348 (Lowndes is all I've tried, and is my point of reference) compare to the Simpson?

 

The last, that is.

Very, very, very close. But this is better - sleeker, which I like better. YMMV.

I was in Shanghai for a few days, are you talking about a certain bar on Xing Le Road? (aka the best bar in the entire universe)

FYI folks in London:

We have our trunk show in London coming up next week, April 20 + 21. Liverano is coming for orders + bringing a good chunk of his RTW items for people to see. Carmina is coming for MTO orders plus we have two sizing runs of Simpson + Robert and a bunch of MTO samples. Nackymade is coming with all the crazy, wonderful glasses that Nacky always has available as RTW or custom. Come check us out!

I just saw yfyf at tsim tsui station walking towards cameron rd. I was going opposite back to the Sheraton. Recognizing someone from the internets in a city of millions is a cool story, bros.
