Nah, I don't Rick stuff. But I just provided a link to a seller that does.

Bought from there and Serpentine but was hoping someone might have some to move locally.

Like all the other stuff they have, it will be priced through the roof. smile.gif

Came across this shoemaker called Matthew Dack with history dated back to 1834 and based in Toronto. Wonder if anyone has a chance to try our their offerings yet?

Update: Actually this name rings a bell. I remember talking to a Loake & Cheaney store owner in downtown Toronto and he mentioned that he used to work for a Canadian shoemaker which was a sub-brand of Church. "Dack" sounds like what he said.

I remember Ivor of Woolridge Shoes telling me the same thing, and I've read about Dack's in the past. Depending on who makes them, then the prices might be reasonable, and there's even a clearance section on their website, if you're lucky enough to find something you like in your size.

I own a pair of Dack's oxfords which were likely from the very tail end of their inventory of the previous incarnation. They've held up extremely well since 2007 and have broken in marvellously. Hands down my favourite pair of shoes. Don't know what that means for the new lineup though.

There is a Dack's shoe thread for questions about the old B&M store and the new online business. The current incarnation was started by a family member. I ordered some of the sale oxfords (returned because I needed a G-fitting) and they were quite nice. They appear to be Cheaney's, so you're getting your money's worth.

I've sent my question to the contact page of the current Dack's online store and was told: 

 

" Our shoes are as well made as Church’s, but are a much better value. They are made in England by the same manufacturer (a former Church’s subsidiary) who made them for Dack’s Shoes Limited from 1999 (when the New Brunswick plant closed after Prada acquired Church’s Footwear) until their bankruptcy in 2009. We acquired the brand after the bankruptcy and have been working with the same English factory ever since, and it is not Loake. Although Loake says their shoes are made in England, the uppers are made in third world countries and only stitched to the sole in England. Our shoes are entirely made in England.

 

The only way to really appreciate our quality is to buy a pair. If you decide to purchase a pair from us, keep in mind that purchases on our webstore are risk free. If the shoes do not fit, or are not to your entire satisfaction, you can return them for a refund or an exchange. Shipping and returns are free and easy, the return label is in the box the shoes are shipped in."

 

Sounds like it's worth a try especially for the clearance section. I like how it's in CAD and it's free shipping.

Sounds like they're being pretty open/honest about it all (though the chip on the shoulder comes through in the message)

Has anybody had a Toronto alterations tailor take pleats out of pants? My tailor doesn't want to do it, but I have a pair of pants that has two old-timey pleats, and I hate the pleats. Fabric is nice as all hell, though. Gladson.

I can't say I've had that alteration done before. I've just embraced the pleats. 

 

I also just noticed you have the same measurements as I do, right down to arm length. I think your feet are slightly larger but luckily I take the same size as RogerP!!  

Hopefully you're not a lawyer too!

That I am. 

 

My wallet is relieved I am not the same size as @RogerP, or I would be bankrupt and possibly divorced from buying all of his kick-ass boots.

 

Has anybody had pleats successfully removed by an alterations tailor?  @TRINI , @Master-Classter
