I can't comment on pricing per se as I don't know the tailor, but I do know what you should look out for when assessing if a tailor is of good quality or not.  My Dad is a tailor and so I see how much work he puts into his craft, and honestly, most houses are just pump and dump shops:  http://suitupdressup.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/tailor-muffed/

Who should I contact or where to shop online for custom made full or cover alligator leather wallets?

 

I've been to portland leather goods and hugheslow@gmail.com for inquries but no response for a few weeks now.

Eh.. The problem is that you are going to have to ask the tailor to provide the measurements according to how the MTM shop measures and interprets their measurements, so I would say less than foolproof and oftentimes there are other things to consider than just straight measurements.

Completely agree.  Factors like posture, slight differences in arm length, shoulder shape, overall build need to be taken into account for a good bespoke experience.

Hey guys, I'm sure someone here could help me out.

I've been wearing this peacoat for almost everyday this winter and now the collar (especially the pointy ends) are starting to get soft and curling inwards and won't stay standing for a long time. So I was wondering if there is any quick fixes that I could do.

Cheers

Bill Julian, who makes high quality alligator leather belts... does he also does small leather goods and boots?

 

I've done some deep researching and found that bill julian's products are really good.

 

Any way to get in contact with him as well?

Light gray isn't that casual a shade. It's less formal than charcoal or navy, but a plain light gray is still more than formal enough.

Feel free to get a light gray DB suit. Light gray flannel would be nice.

Anyone know where to find a slim fitting turtleneck/roll neck? Specifically in navy and charcoal/grey

For a U.S. Navy issue peacoat you can use an ironing cloth to cover the wool and surge steam through the collar to get it to lay straight.  I don't know how this will work on your coat because I don't know the content or quality of the the wool.  You can try the method above and see how it comes out.  Be careful not to let the iron get too hot and I'd avoid placing it on the coat directly.

Does anyone know when the best time to reach ( exotic leather craftsmen named Bill Julian  )??

I would appreciate any input on my shoe decisions as I'm beginning to put together a better wardrobe even though my industry is quite casual (IT).  I have over the last year or so had a handful of suits custom made here in Atlanta ( http://customsuitshop.com/ ).  Dark Navy, Dark Charcoal, Black and Light Grey Windowpane suit.  Plus the usual light tan dress slacks.  I picked up the AE LaSalle in Chilli last year and wear this with my Navy suit and tan slacks:

Also picked up the AE Carlsbad in Walnut, wear with Tan slacks (not sure how i still feel about this pair).

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF6612_1_40000000001_-1

 

I picked up these two pair based on what seemed to fit my foot at the AE store - one to replace a black Ecco pair.

 

AE Harrison in Black and AE Flatiron in Bourbon

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF1103_1_40000000001_-1

 

Would greatly appreciate any feedback on these as i had considered looking at the C&J line, but figured since i had a local AE store plus could purchase twice as many AE vs C&J thought i'd go this route first.  But these last two haven't been worn and i do have the option to return if the feedback is the C&J or another line is worth getting just a pair or two now.

 

I also would value any input on which pairs / colors go best with suit colors that i now have or may look to purchase. 

 

Many Thanks.

I'm looking for a khaki blazer that pairs well with jeans and dark chinos. I don't want something that's too flesh-colored so close to my face, so perhaps something that's more lightly-colored than the color one normally imagines when thinking of "khaki". As a poor college student, affordability would be nice as well!

 

Perhaps something like this, but a little lighter.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Eith, take a look at this thread - http://www.styleforum.net/t/338954/streamlined-shoe-wardrobe/0_100. Also, this article sums up similar points too - http://putthison.com/post/27558524428/the-seven-shoe-wardrobe-the-longer-i-write-about. If you don't wear suits often, your one black pair of oxfords (AE Harrison) is probably going to be sufficient, and otherwise, you can focus on derbies, loafers, monks (and boots, although I suspect you don't need those so much in Atlanta), mostly in various shades of brown or cordovan.

 

That said, my opinion is that you are best off getting first shoes that you can try on. So if you can find a place which stocks C&J (Barneys etc.), go ahead, but if not, Allen Edmonds is a good choice too. Once you have a solid rotation, you can start experimenting by ordering other brands online if that's your thing.

Can a black t-shirt under a grey cashmere sweater work?
