Depends on your size but Spier & Mackay usually stocks these in a few colours.  Check online.  Its not a severe slim fit, but certainly fitted.

Thanks I googled slim fit royal Oxford and couldn't find one in black. I normally can do my own leg work but just couldn't get exactly what I want.

There aren't a whole lot of shirt makers who bother making black dress shirts in anything but the cheapest fabrics.

I have read with great interest the topic on Carmina shoes and I am a bit surprised - in a good way - by the prices that they charge for most of their shoes on skoaktiebolaget. How does the quality of their shoes compare to C&J for instance ?

I have seen a few ties by Monsieur Fox and many of them look very good but there are not many reviews online about their products, it is mainly about their cufflinks / lapel chains, does anyone have experience with their ties or pocket squares ?

Consensus is that Carmina > Crockett & Jones, especially at current GBPEUR rates.

What do you think of the pattern/color combination on this sport coat?  Does this look like an orphaned suit coat (it isn't), or particularly old-mannish?

 

Thanks SF

It looks like a nice sportcoat that's 2 sizes too large for you.
post #31074 of 33197

Yeah, I haven't gotten it tailored yet.  It fits the shoulders and arms.

completely agree with this. I owned c&j northcote boots and i still own carmina shell captoe. Now leather wise these boots are different. But overall construction and feel is nicer on carmina side. i do think i am comparing two completely different shoes but i stand by it. Especially given the price.

What would be a better option for a pair of summer shoes: white (or tan) bucks,saddle shoes or spectators?

I got a hankering for a pair of trad summer shoes and was wandering which is more versatile, common, and useful for wearing with chinos,white jeans, linen and seersucker trousers, odd jackets and maybe shorts. Any help is appreciated :)

That confirms my thinking about the two brands. The only downside is that Carmina hasn't set foot in the UK yet, I heard / read that they plan to have a shop in London in the future.
Thank you both for your help !

Dirty bucks or saddle shoes would be the most versatile, depending on the colors of the saddle shoes.

My question:

 

If you could buy the exact same jacket - one from one shop at full retail - fits perfect.

 

The other from another shop (on sale, limited sizes) but one size above at less than half the price

- with the intention of having it altered - what would be the better choice?

 

 

I would post-script this question by asking if you have the larger jacket altered, would that mean you could have it taken out in the future if you put on weight?

 

Thank you

IF the larger jacket fits in the shoulders and the length is good, I'd go with the larger. If not, the one that fits perfect.
