But those days are gone and I'm not into playing 'dress up' just for a photo shoot. Sorry.

I have acquired quite a bit of knowledge about traditional dress, much of it coming by way of the legendary Laurence Pucci, who was my first tailor and something of a sartorial mentor (not to mention great friend.) I feel very fortunate to have met somebody so knowledgable, articulate and generous right out of the box. My commentary here is a way of paying it forward.

Thanks for the response. I hear you. :slayer:

I'm after a stable measurement for sizes 9 to 10US (or 8 to 9 UK) for the common 348 last.

If you have data, and wouldn't mind reporting it in that thread, I'd be grateful. What I'm doing is taking a tailor's tape and measuring toe to heel, with tape held to each point (so not a straight line on the tape). Would be useful to know where you sourced your shoe (US vs UK, e.g., Barneys vs. not Barneys).

While this started as an attempt to figure out the size of my shoe (which I'm still debating on keeping), I figured it might be useful to the C&J community as well so I'm going to collate data.

Cheers.

That's a nice trifecta of fits, right there.

That Betel pic looks very much like Clags.

Yes, so far as the jacket, tie, and trousers are concerned.  And the beard, of course.

 

Claghorn's collars are typically a bit more widely spread, however, and those shoes don't strike me as his style.

 

Both are lovely fits, however.

 

Cheers,

Bubb that jacket is awesome, but I think you might have shrunk out of it. Waist looks big on you.

Down to a full on 40R at this point. #ChampagneProblems.
Debating whether to slim it, as I have several others at this point, or just sell it. Likely the latter.

Congratulations on the weight loss.

 

It was intended, right? I didn't just congratulate you on having lymphoma I hope.
