It's generally just a sign that the shirt is well made as it is harder to do.
If your tailor is doing alterations to a single needle stitched shirt and replaces the stitches with doubles, find a new tailor. They should be able to put it back together like they found it.post #23674 of 330639/25/13 at 7:28ampost #23675 of 330639/25/13 at 7:57amQuote:Originally Posted by mimo
It's called "channeled stitching". A layer around the edge of the sole is peeled back, a little channel carved into the layer underneath, and the stitching is done inside the channel. Then the layer that was peeled back - about half an inch all the way around, is glued back down over the stitching which lies flush inside the channel.
Eventually, the layer of leather over the channel usually starts coming away or wears away, and then you'll start to see where the stitching is!
I have read this is called hidden channel stitching, since some goodyear welted shoes still have channeled stitching, but have the stitching exposed. A lot of people still do call this channeled stitching though and don't differentiate.post #23676 of 330639/25/13 at 7:58am
One of the very best, is William Lockie of Scotland. They use very fine cashmere, it takes the under-hair of 3 goats per each sweater and I think they even offer bespoke creations though I've not tried the service. They are very fine sweaters ideal for wearing over a shirt under a jacket, or they offer the chunky creations too, always in very fine quality.
On a more budget level but much less fine Marks & Spencer cashmere is great for anyone with long arms and washes impeccably on the wool programme. They probably don't contain too much fine under-hair , if any at all, but I've never had one that shrunk yet. You couldn't layer one with a suit though, they are more to wear as an outer sweater,
Moths do not respect highly-prized cashmere any better than the rest so I am disinclined to pay over 4 bills as well.post #23677 of 330639/25/13 at 8:14amEither my neck has gotten bigger from serious workouts, or the collars on some of my brooks brothers MTM shirts have shrunk some over the past couple of years, and now some of the older shirts (hence why I think the shirts shrunk, as the newer shirts still fit fine and I don't think they made the neck larger last time around) are about half an inch to an inch too snug. If I have the collars replaced, in the event i do need an inch more room in my neck, is that possible to do?
Thanks!post #23678 of 330639/25/13 at 2:19pmJust received my Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald suit in navy. I'm wondering if they sent me black?
I have a couple other navy suits but this one is noticeably darker than any other navy suit I have. I don't have a black suit to compare it to side to side though. Anyone else have a navy BB suit? Is it the darkest navy suit you have?post #23679 of 330639/25/13 at 2:32pmQuote:Originally Posted by StephenB

I have sold hundreds of them. BB 1818 with Trobaldo Togna fabric, I'll bet. That navy may look black until you put it next to something which actually is black. It is very dark.post #23680 of 330639/25/13 at 4:04pmpost #23681 of 330639/25/13 at 7:51pmpost #23682 of 330639/25/13 at 8:54pm
I think I've asked this somewhere here before but never got an answer.
I have very mismatched feet. I have hear it is common for people to have one foot slightly larger than the other but in my case it is so pronounced that I really should be wearing two differrent sizes. I think one is an 10.5F and the other 11D. Obviously there is no way I can afford bespoke. But if I purchase MTO from Crockett and Jones, Edward Green or the like, am I able to order shoes with different sizes for my feet or will I have to just get one standard sizing?post #23683 of 330639/25/13 at 9:44pmpost #23684 of 330639/25/13 at 10:11pmpost #23685 of 330639/26/13 at 8:38amQuote:Originally Posted by ovlov

Allen Edmonds. They allow different sizing for MTO shoes.
