can't be beat IMO.  I won't 1/2" and haven't experimented with 1/4"; but 3/8 has worked so far.  

What do you mean by 3/8?
post #3167 of 4976
3/8th of an inch versus deeper 1/2 inch ones.


In my opinion, having a single 3/8 gives a little extra fabric to account for hands/objects in pockets, raising legs while stepping, etc, whereas 1/2 inch and even two of those just add a lot of extra bulk.

Is there a code? I just tried and it's not doing anything automatically...

No idea, it just states that right in the copy on the items, and initially a pop-up when you pull the site up.  Maybe does it right at checkout?

Yeah, it works but still charges for shipping and tax.

Anyone going to the Parisian Gentlemen event tonight at Leatherfoot?

Right... Offer is for no duty.  Only makes sense on non NA MFG goods.

Exactly. And I avoid things in my pocket like a plague. Flat fronts on pants that fit is just no dice for moving around, and I am on the skinny side of the scale already.

Did you happen to go? It was a great event and Hugo gave a great talk on elegance.

 

Bruce Boyer is next up on the docket, towards end of May I think. That will be a great one as he is an authority on the subject really.

Got hit for full duty and taxes on a pair of Cheaney brogues. The fact that they were sent by Brogueshoes.co.uk was probably the tip-off.

I did. It was great, I was sorry I had to leave just after Hugo began speaking.

That's amazing on Bruce Boyer, he would be fantastic.

Yes Hugo was the embodiment of elegance as he made everyone feel at ease. 

 

We hope you enjoyed the event and are thankful that you could attend. The events would not have been what it was without all of you.

Sorry you could not hear Hugo speak in person; however, we will have an article and video on our site in due time. Hopefully we can recreate the experience in a different medium for everyone to experience Hugo's elegance and charm.

 

We look forward to seeing you again and hosting everyone else.

Saw this over at GYW, not that I'm a fan of the designs, but another low-budget contender for shoes. Never heard of them, but pricepoint is at $225 and everything is made in Portugal. Blake stitched. Apparently you can schedule a private try-on in TO.

Hi my name is JP and I'm one of the co-founder of Philip Mercer. I saw traffic on our website from this thread so decided to come see. We started the company 4 weeks ago, probably why you never heard of us! You can indeed schedule a try-on if you wish! 

 

If you have any other questions, let me know!
