Everything is shipped via USPS.
I can also ship via FedEx if you prefer.

Straight from Spain: blurry sample photos of Andrew Lock women's shoes!

Because even women need a Goodyear welt.

To Andrew Lock,

      Can you be kind enough to advise the readers & myself do you have access to these manufacturers for EEE sizing, I typically wear a 10 1/2 EEE in a Johnston Murphy & old Florsheims

with the Goodyear Welt. If you do what would be their cost & waiting time for them after getting sized or fitted by your staff. It seems that the larger feet sized requirements always seem to get left behind on shoe models from most manufacturers.

 

      Question two as it relates to your besoke line of sartorial creations, can I assumethe following:

 

. That they are fully free floating canvas interlinings with all of the accompaning requirements for a truly bespoke suit ?

 

. That they are sew in your facilities by yourself & your supervised staff where applicable; or do you "offshore" to some Asian or outside local factory ?

   As there seems to be a lack of real expertise in skill and proper techniques of certain foreign factory's that I have read about on the websites.

 

. What would the typical cost be for material (2 piece suit or 3 piece) from a respected mill for 130 & 140's.

 

. Do you go thru the typical 3 fitting process via the baste, adjustment teardown, and final fitting ?

 

I am sorry to indulge you with these questions, as I live on L.I. and I would seriously consider to have 2 or 3 suits made by you and your talented firm.

Reply when you get a chance, thank you for your time & consideration in replying to my inquiry..

Purchased the Beaumont sample and it came in this week. Andrew was kind enough to include some shoe cream with it. Very nice shoes and great service as Andrew was quick to respond to questions. Will consider MTM suit in the future.

 

Some pictures, excuse the crappy wooden floors in my modest NYC apartment.

Those are fantastic. I really love the lasting of Lock's styles. I am probably picking up a pair of the Oxfords in black in the near future. And btw, there is nothing modest about living in NYC! (I'm moving to Manhattan in a couple months.)

Thank you. There's certainly nothing modest about the rent in Manhattan,but everything else pretty much is. I'm running out of space for clothes and shoes! Enjoy Manhattan, it'll be super hot when you get here.

Great combo. Any chance of seeing more of the suit on you to see some fit pictures?

Well I decided to dive into the "deep end" of Andrew's MTM program - handmade 3pc in a Minnis 150s Q Project glen-plaid.  I described my goal to AL as "Cary Grant/Connery-era Bond with a dash of Nucky Thompson attitude" and I feel confident that's what I'll get. 


Andrew came to my hotel room in FiDi and as I had packed/dressed for the Jazz Lawn Party immediately said, "Oh you like a higher rise!" :-)

 

I went conservative with 99% of the details: "regular" 3.5" lapel, side tabs w/brace buttons, solid lining (but quarter-lined so that I can wear sans vest in the highest temperatures), "regular" cut in 40 rather than "slim" in 41/42, standard pockets, 2" cuffs with nary a whisper of a break, flap pockets (but no ticket pocket - as I pointed out to AL, how have ticket pockets become popular when ticketing is all digital today?).  Oh yes and a single reverse pleat; I'd have preferred the Grant/Connery forward pleat but I understand that that's a more difficult detail to achieve.  However, when he said he had a vest option with an offset sixth button a la the classic Goldfinger suit I knew I was in the right hands. :slayer:

 

I've done the "consultant" gig in IT for quite some time and I'm looking to go back to FTE, so as a 2pc this will be an interview suit with personality, and then as a 3pc it should cover everything from weddings (white shirt, navy grenadine) to Gatsby parties (FU shirt/FU tie) including the one on whose committee I sit here in NC.

 

Andrew is a really cool guy, low pressure but really knows his stuff (some nice cleanup work at the sleevehead to hide my boney stick arms, moving up the barchetta pocket, waist/seat/fork/thigh adjustments that I don't quite understand but trust will come out perfect :-)).
