Do you use shoe trees? I haven't seen a wrinkle pattern like that on any of my own shoes. Might be the wrong last for your feet as well.
Nope. I have a long upper body though.
To clarify: the super short back blade thing usually occurs with knit ties (which I guess are shorter in general?), whilst the problem with regular ties is that the knot sometimes turns out smaller than I'd like it to.
No - and I should. These shoes are pretty wrinkly alright. Well they are kind of on the way out - they weren't expensive. But I should get the trees alright.
I've been meaning to ask if you use standard or xl length ties - your knots usually look great and I knew you were a tall fella too! Do you know of any good source for longer knits? They're usually way too short, like the one in the picture I posted.
Great look today btw, love the suit!
Thanks! No I just buy standard length, but like I said I make sure they are between 58" - 60" at a minimum. I've gotten a fair few ties from Luxeswap and the measurements are always given on the eBay ad. I got my (one) knit tie in a shop called Moss Bros here which is not an expensive shop by any means. It just happens to be long.
There's a store here called Kevin & Howlin which stock Atkinsons ties; they do knit ties too and while the wool ties are very long, I haven't bought a knit from them. I could check it out for you though if you like.
I'm a big fan of the exquisite trimmings shoe trees, if you're looking for a source relatively close by.
let stitchy fulfill his fetish guys.
Besides Clags knows the safety word.
