One of the members had helped me to I.D. these shoes that I picked up at a thrift shop as probably made by Cheaney. After doing a lot of reading on the forum, I'm now wondering if they are Shell or Calf. Would anyone be able to tell from the photo or be able to give me any ideas about how I can tell?? Any ideas appreciated!
Im looking for a solid 2-button charcoal suit in 38R with a trouser waist that can be let out to 35". My price range is <$750. Any idea what labels I should be looking at? It sounds like I need to go MTM...
1.How much approximately Roy Robson classic tuxedo is worth ? In dollars
2. On the Hugo Boss jacket are written "Super 100" and on the pants label are written "Hugo Boss Angelico/Parma", What "Super 100" and "Hugo Boss Angelico/Parma" means ? and how much the suit is worth?
Would appreciate if anyone knows what is, if any, the difference, fit-wise, between black label and white label Barba shirts (black base/white lettering and vice versa)? If there is any difference is it manageable to size up or down to compensate?
I'm going mad over the back fits of my some of my jackets. I need to start buying bespoke! If only I could afford Kilgour or Steed. That or fill out more. Thoughts? I just realized that the back vent doesn't close on the navy jacket when buttoned. I can also see an obvious collar gap and roll on the back. (Doesn't lay flat) On both jackets, I see excess fabric under the arms. An average person wouldn't bat an eye (well, maybe with the weird single vent closing problem), but I've succumbed to iGent obsessive compulsive disorder.
The jacket on the left may have been taken in too much on the hip and could be let out but another cause on this jacket is a long back. you can see the horizontal wrinkles under the collar. You probably have shoulders that are high/square compared to the cut of the jacket. if you pull up on the center back seam at the collar you will see the center vent straighten out. This problem is also common on anyone with an erect posture. center vented jackets need correct front/back balance to hang properly.
