I was planning on just getting a tie rack, but was deterred by the $50 shipping that the hanger project would charge, but as stuff on amazon is outrageously expensive, I figure I might just get it from Kirby Allison and get some suit/overcoat hangers since I'm paying the $50 in shipping anyways and it doesn't seem to increase even if I add more stuff. Think it went up like $5 when I quadrupled the size of my order

So.... I wear 44 long (from Ede&Ravenscroft if that makes a difference),and I was planning on getting a few suit hangers and a hanger of my overcoat.

Kirby recommends 17 inch hangers for jackets up to size 44, but when I measure my jackets I get closer to 19.3 inches, and for my overcoat more like 20.1 inches.

Obviously the 44 long overcoat isn't made to be 44 long, but rather to fit a guy who's 44 long, therefore it's made to fit over a 44 long suit, so it makes sense for that measurement to be off, but when kirby recommends 17 inches for a 44 and I get 19.3 inches I'm worried that I'm screwing up the measurement or that there's something weird with either his recommendation or the sizing of my suits.

So I'm wondering, for those who have had his hangers before, how did you find the sizing? Did you buy based on his recommendation for suit sizes? If so how did it end up fitting, was the recommendation accurate?

Does anyone have any tips for me to figure this out? I'd hate to spend money and find out I got the wrong size when the stuff arrives.

Thanks
Silverfox

Silverfox - thanks for your post.

For a 44 long, you could probably go to an 18.5", especially if you also plan to use them for overcoats. Because we've had a lot of experience with jacket measurements overstating the hanger size, we've tried to move away from that to a Jacket-size-only sizing guide. But even then, it's still an imperfect science.

As for shipping - I presume we'd be shipping internationally. Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do there because everything we sell ships really large. I actually lose on most our international shipping. But if you think shipping is overstated, email me after you place your order and I'll be happy to adjust downward if it comes out cheaper than what we quoted.

I'm not sure if it is the trade off with them being so sheer or maybe the fact that I put at least 8 miles on them per wear.. I rotate them with about 4 different pairs of shoes and I even safety-pinned one of each pair near the top to try and make sure I alternate which foot their on. Nothing really helped. (I did try to follow your advice on avoiding holes as well, it helped some.) Hopefully next summer I can get a whole new line up and give each pair less wear? Do you the the 920 would be any stronger? Also any chance you'll do a limited run in silk for black-tie rigs?

Itsuo - sorry to hear about your socks. Do you keep your toenails trimmed? If you have a long toe nail, because of how thin these socks are, they'll saw right through the end. When I first started wearing these nicer socks, I had the same problem. But keeping my big toenail trimmed short has essentially eliminated the problem.

With standard, thicker socks, it isn't a problem. But the socks also suck.

I'd also recommend pulling out a needle and darning (sewing) any holes shut. Gives the sock character! I've done this with a few pairs before I figured out the toenail issue.

PM me before you place any new orders and I'll give you a courtesy kickback for the damaged socks.

How would I get rid of this water mark?

You could try a little Reno'Mat. I'm experimenting with the Hirve Winter Stain Remover this week (on another forum member's shoes) that's supposed to remove water stains. I'll let you know how it works out.

Thanks Kirby.  I did see your guide to making the socks last by keeping the nails at bay may have helped but I had holes in several different places across my different pairs.  Again, I maintain this is at least in part a function of the mileage I put on these socks.  I do like them very much and agree that darning does give them personality! 

 
Perhaps the sock darning could be a future DIY feature on your site?  I know I would surely appreciate it.

Congratulations on your upgraded website with new material and more defined aids.

 

Unfortunately, the dull white text on black in the descriptions are still to hard for me to read. unless I expand the screen or block out the text to see the white text better.

 

Perhaps you could run a Poll at this forum and ask others when viewing the following new page:

Thanks, David. We'll look into getting rid of the black background sometime next year -- it would have been a much larger change than I could have managed. shog[1].gif

As far as the shoe care guides - I am looking into creating "printer friendly" links on each of the guide that would remove the background and change the text color to black. I'll let you know.

in the meantime, maybe try increasing the size of your browser font...?

Placed an order on the 27th, have yet to receive a confirmation email that my order has shipped. Also sent an email/message through the contact form asking if I could add buy something else and have it added minutes after placing the initial order. Is this normal?

Lirum - can you PM me your order number? Between the launch of the new website, a warehouse reorganization to make room for stuff coming in for the fall, and a physical inventory, we're running a little behind -- all of which is not normal. But I will be happy to figure out what's up with your order, just need your info.

Kirby,  any thoughts on the I Colori di Antonio DVD?

 

I bought O'Mast and love it.

I Colori di Antonio is shot just as beautifully as O'Mast, but, as the title suggests, really focuses on the personal story of Antonio Liverano. It is much less about tailoring as it is about a tailor. I'd give it three out of five stars. O'Mast is a classic that I will re-watch. I Colori di Antonio is something I'll only watch once... shog[1].gif

However, on this note, what I was very surprised by was I am Dandy by Rose Callahan. Based on the cover, I was expecting an esoteric book profiling impossible-to-relate-to weird dandies. These guys are certainly in the book, but it also contains profiles of many normal, but incredibly well-dressed men. I especially am enjoying the glimpses into these men's homes and personal lives.
