Del Cerro/San Carlos for me. So next to El Cajon. Though don't get there much nowadays and SD seems to have changed quite a bit since my days there.

I know the feeling. I went back last year after 8 years away. Somehow the brush seemed browner and the roads potholier. If such a thing can be imagined.

Gents (Mods, I hope this is ok)

 

I've decided to let go of my Highburys. Great shoe (348 last) and I would keep it if it was my n+5 pair (n= how many shoes I have now), but decided that I need some suede chukkas instead. 

 

For active Noodlers who might be interested I'll knock another $10 off the price as it is now (so as low as $285 for new C&Js with CONUS shipping included; I just dropped the price today).

The privileged lives you guys must lead to find disappointment in San Diego. :)

There was a saying about the green-ness of someone else's grass. My wife is from PA and can't stand the snow and the hills. I'm from CA and I can't stand the heat and the beaches.

I love how full circle the discussion is going today, because.....YOUR OPINION IS WRONG!

My wife would agree with you.

I saw a peak lapel SC in the WARWT thread a few days back, Peak lapels are more formal, yes? (hence my confusion) People were suggesting in the NMWA thread for chalkstripe suits to do peak lapel. Is there some historical significance behind the peak lapel on certain suits but not on others?

post #25929 of 37396
I consider peak lapels to be more formal and I think a peal lapel SC is weird.

SuitSupply's Washington cut would disagree, it seems. To me, those all look bad.

I have no interest in any peak lapel SB suit - only DB for me.

I agree with the above. One exception, the "evening suit." Which may be my next bespoke commish. Another exception, something intentionally old fashioned. Like a single breasted peak lapel navy chalk stripe flannel.

Question:

 

My Shirt size seems to be ~ 16.5 - 36 1/3 which I'll obviously never find off the rack. Occasionally I can find 16.5 - 37 but 17-37 is much easier to find. I'm considering buying 17 - 37 from Kamakura or Charles Tyrwhitt or somewhere and just having them altered down to size. Is there anything out of whack about that?

post #25932 of 37396
CT may be worth it if you have a good tailor since the shirts sell for low prices. If you're going to alter $80 Kamakura shirts, you might as well try Proper Cloth or Luxire.

Asked and Answered, Proper Cloth does sleeve sizes in 1/4 inch increments. Thanks Darkside. I wonder if their measurements hold true after a few washes and, ummmm, shrinkage?

Agree

 

Disagree

 

And well shit. I went through all my archived images (pinned, not on a hard drive anywhere) to find the many examples of single breasted peak lapel odd jackets (or suit jackets being worn as such) to prove my point. And all I found (of close to 1000 images now, I think):

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

(I'm also anti-flap, but that's a different issue)

So I am indeed alone. Either it thinking that a peak lapel worn with odd trousers look good or as the one person who actually tries it on SF.

Great stuff. But... all of these would have been better without the peak lapels, IMHO.
