I really like how soft some of SS's cuts are and the open weave used. You are right that the jackets aren't much more than the half-canvassed ones but I feel the 2x premium is a bit much going from half to full canvas on the suits.

I recall something saying the MTM program isn't well developed at the Yorkville store.

It is cool enough. Fabric seams a bit delicate, and I really didn't wear it more then 5-6 times, if that much, so don't know how it will hold. I actually found I don't like the color, so will sell it. It's this one:

They do have some more traditional fabrics in suits, although 150s. And this is why I would prefer MTM, because you can select some down to earth fabric.

Regarding MTM, I think they selected a guy that will be interface for their MTM program full time. His name is Bobby (I think). Used to be one of the SAs, very nice guy and the one I always used to ask for, because he always seamed to know what he is talking about.

I actually once wrote that their MTM is not developed yet, but it seams they started developing it.

I feel their value proposition for the full canvas models is to offer more handwork and fabrics with high super numbers. The one I'm interested in is in the VBC wool/mohair but if by some miracle they have the Minnis Fresco II book for MTM I'd be really tempted.

I guess I will have to stop by one day to ask about the MTM program and see the books.

I suggest you call them, ask for this Bobby guy, have a word with him. I'm also interested, just having a bit of lack of time :-)

Thanks for the suggestion. smile.gif I'm in the area at least a couple times a week so easier for me to just drop by; I'll keep you posted if I find out any more info.

Perfect, thanks! To all those keeping track Leatherfoot only carries Saphir and not the Tarrago, however I'm told they are the exact same product.

 

EDIT: Picked up Tarrago at Novely for $16.95 + tax. HBC had Moneysworth Nano Protector for $13 but I'd heard good things about the Tarrago (although I'm sure it's the exact same).

Anyone see the new brand Skoak introduced, Carlos Santos?

Did anyone see them before or have any experience with them?

Seems to be a lot of shoe for the price. ~$382 CAD including FedEx shipping, so ~$500 CAD all in with duties and taxes

True but I've even been hit for duty by Canada Post recently for something as small as a wallet. It's ridiculous what they're doing lately. Very few people are even still buying online outside of Canada recently because of the Canadian dollar yet they're still dinging us. I would understand if the dollar was great and they wanted us to be shopping in Canada.
post #2609 of 4449
This works better as a deterrent. If the dollar is strong, people just treat the duties as part of it.

When it's weak, it's almost a second penalty.

So I'm shopping for a few pair of new shoes.

You know what's funny. A pair of Alden calf shoes from the US at retail delivered to us is only about 200$ less than a Vass MTO from GTA.

Not sure I'm sold on the Carlos Santos yet. Will have to see a few pair come in first. I would likely do a derby or jodhpur.
