As far as top comfort goes for me, GG on the 71 is my most comfy fit.

Totally understand. You won't ever see me paying US prices for EG. The going rate in Europe right now is at Vass level with the USD conversion.

Overall, I prefer my Vass and the price is very reasonable. There is something about the craftsmanship that just makes them so easy to love. It's so easy to tell that every detail on them was done by hand...in a good way, which isn't always the case.

So well made. Bargain for the price.

Clags u cray.

@Claghorn we go to Bandung every once in a while for a weekend trip, so next time we'll head there I'll go to see Jalan Sriwijaya to find out what they have.

Elio correctly identified those as C&J, Noodles.

So, today I told a tailor to make me a jacket. I'll keep you posted.

Is this the guy you and JCmeyer were talking about last night?

With apologies to Bugs Bunny: It might be, rabbit. It might.

I find it curious that with both @mimo and @in stitches in this thread that we've never talked about watches.  My 12 year old quartz watch is being repaired and I suddenly find myself thinking an automatic watch on a leather strap might be a nice change of pace.  So far I'm leaning towards a Stowa, but could be persuaded otherwise.

No need to spill the beans but is this a local Bay Area tailor?
post #21176 of 37403
Stowa is a great choice, NS1.

Does anybody here have experience with ties from Finamore? I quite like their shirts but know nothing about their ties. Are they any good?

Ask Ian at shopthefinest. He stocks them and is an honest guy. My guess is they are good.

Good idea, thanks. I've dealt with Ian before, genuine good guy.

This is fascinating to me. If I meet someone for the first time, my eyes immediately go to their shoes because it gives me more insight about that person than any other article of clothing.

You need to match your shoe game to the rest of your business wardrobe. Right now it is sitting confused in between your lackluster casual game and your very nice business threads.
