The Valextra shoes are well made and looked good. I liked them so much that I bought four pairs when I was in Milan.

I sold two of mine here, photos should still be in the thread. I think the buyer had sizing issues and then resold them. I still have two pairs - suede frog mouth boot, and one other that I don't remember smile.gif

Camel hair casentino by mysterious Florentine tailor. Hopefully ready for Winter 2014.

About casentino cloth

Originally from the first valley of the Arno, the Casentino cloth was known, from the middle age until the nineteenth century, as a rustic and hard cloth made with the woolls produced by the sheeps of these mountains.

Very durable cloth was right to the needs of those who were forced to live outdoors or constantly on the road, this fabric was the ritual suit of carters, farmers, sly peasants and also of fat townspeople “....... where between Poppi and Bibbiena and Stia we sin without fear with the glass and with the women, with the cappiotto and with the deck of cards, trusting in the benevolence of St. Francis.......” and since most ancient time was traded in Florence and in Prato.

The Casentino, which was at all times a bristly hairy and rough cloth in accordance with the dictations of the rulers of Tuscany, had a very similar appearance to the fabric of the old Franciscan habit and the color did not deviating too much, in fact the first color that distinguished it was precisely the refectory, the grey and the mouse, its finishing rather rough with irregular sleeping and without a clear direction; the antique casentino cloth was in fact a rough cloth, appreciated only for its high resistance to wear and weathering.

That looks great, Gaz. What details did you pick for your coat? Looks like DB with two patch pockets a welted breast? Envelope pockets, or just patch?

I unfortunately don't live in a climate cold enough to justify any real heavy coats, but have been thinking about getting three over the course of a couple of years. Ideally a camel hair polo, navy Guard's, and either a checked tweed Ulster, or a wheat herrintbone Donegal Ulster. All DBs, as I've been corrupted to believe that DB coats are better than SBs (damn @unbelragazzo)

Great stuff, Gaz. Love the pleats on the pants and the way the extended dart lines up. (Surely that was not planned. Nobody could be that anal!)

Jacket and pants are made by two different tailors, so it was a nice coincidence.
