Re pants.

I do agree that the jacket is quite wearable by itself as well.

:rolleyes: Dissenting opinions...

1)What is the definition of a shoe recrafting?

2)What is the difference between recrafting vs resoling? More specifically, what is the difference between sending shoes to the manufacturer vs sending them to nick V?

It means the coat it came with has a drop of that measure.

Drop is the numerical difference in size between the coat size and trouser waist. I.e 42L with a drop 8 comes with 34 waist pants

With recrafting, they refinish the uppers, do everything on the original last, replace the welt if needed, ect. Nick V is a high end guy, so he'd likely do all the same stuff, though not on the original last (but very close). He'd also probably use a better quality sole leather than some manufacturers. Your average corner cobbler would not do all that though- they would just swap out the sole, without being too careful on the stitching, give you a quick polish, and send you on your way.

Like I mentioned, I am not talking about a suit. There is no coat/jacket. Only pants.

 

You go to a store, they sell stand-alone trousers and the tag mentions a drop (so far I have ever only seen a drop of 6).

The maker will work with the original last of the shoe when resoling. Which can be important and why they usually don't accept shoes that have been resoled by someone else.

The term drop refers to the difference in pant size from jacket size as part of a suit. That is the only meaning of the term in terms of clothing, and 6 inches is the standard. Perhaps you're looking at suit separates, or maybe the maker you're looking at just uses the same tag on all their pants, regardless of whether they're intended for a suit or not. But there is no other meaning of that term.

Using the same tag on all pants... I wouldn't think so since there are other information as well that is different every time, like the model number. And I have seen it from various brands over time. This is in Europe by the way, not the states.

 

Maybe I should email a company and see if they reply.

Hopefully not much, otherwise you're a chick.

I recently bought a pair of braces that have black leather tabs, rather than brown (which is what all of my other braces have had).

I'm wondering if the leather color has any influence on other items I might wear with them (shoes?). The braces in question are very informal/whimsical with a fly fishing motif.

I don't think it should matter, as braces are considered an undergarment and thus not meant to be seen in public. But for some reason it has me puzzled.

I really wouldn't worry about that. It's such a miniscule detail that it really won't A) be noticeable B) matter, if noticed

I'm planning on buying a pair of hender scheme vans replicas and i'm unsure on the sizing. I wear 8.5 in most shoes and i'm wondering if I should go for size 3 or 4. Anyone have any experience with the shoes?

The answer to your question.

That is what I'm saying. I have trousers that are like that too. The coat that would have come with it would be a drop 6 if it had a coat to match.
