Outstanding. Like with any shirt maker, you'll have to get a single shirt first, so that they can adjust your pattern. Once they have it though, the fit is pretty spot on.

AC's shirts aren't cheap by RTW standards, but for custom, they're one of the most affordable out there. If you're in HK, you can get something as low as 150 per shirt. Outside of HK, they're about 200. Quality is excellent and they excel at getting a good fit. I strongly recommend them.

There's a Double RL store here in ATL (and a few scattered throughout the country). Otherwise, most Barney's Co-Op locations sell them.

Needed to get a new pair of beige chinos as my old pair shrank too much over time and are now just too short. Ended up going for a cotton/linen blend this time. Also, couldn't resist a great white linen s/s shirt (with a rare for LP slim-cut body) and a pair of navy lightly-brushed cotton trousers. The navy trousers are non-SF approved, I'm sure, but I think I'll end up wearing them quite a bit and the fabric should cope well in both shoulder seasons in the UK. As I'm not one for jeans very much, having a pair of navy trousers makes some sense.

Really nice, how much did you pay for the pants?


Can't remember exactly; somewhere around the £200 mark (outlet price; RRP would have been loads more). The fit is good for me, and they're still cheaper than MTM, so if I need a pair of trousers  (esp. summery ones) I check Loro Piana before ordering anything. Got lucky this time!

 

 

 

 

Got a new pair of Derek Rose PJs NWT off eBay and they arrived on my doorstep in under 24 hours from close of auction, exactly as described. Good price too; the whole transaction reminded me of how eBay used to be...! :)

post #3975 of 14544

Need your attention, please!

 

I bought it today, will arrive in August.

 

I ordered today a pair of John Lobb Winchester by request and I would like to hear your thoughts.

 

First of all, the Winchester is a shoe that I like, I would like to hear your opinion about the color that I ordered it.

 

To help you get an idea this is the actual shoe in different colours.

My order will have the calf leather part in Plum Museum Calf, like this shoe.

and the suede part will be in the same colour as the John Lobb 2011 suede.

Like it? or Not? Do you think I Should have gone for a more conservative option like the one in ebay? 

 

Thank you very much.

 

 

PS Colours in these photos are a little bit different from the reality.
