Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

 

 

Both are similar sized, and the one below is bridle leather.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

 

Edit:

 

I don't like the first one, it is too shiny for me. The second one, I am not too sure about either now.

Very nice ...

I may at some point be in the market for a pair of Oxford medium brown suede shoes (Balmoral—i.e., closed throat; God this American English/British English thing is annoying, isn't it?). 

 

Anyone know of any that can be gotten for <= $200 USD that you would recommend?

 

Thanks.

 

Cheers,

Has anyone every bought from this seller?

Is this a legit Corneliani suit? The roll isn't as pronounced as I thought it'd be for a fully canvassed garment(I assume this should be at least a 3roll2.5).

Looks legit, but the price is not the best you can get.

No personal experience with them, but these Herrings (by Loake, but not UK made) look pretty nice for under $200:

Meermin has several options too: http://www.meermin.es/catalogo2.php?id=1

Really? What would be a good price?

I didn't say it wasn't good. I said it wasn't the best. I bought Zegna suits for that price with a little research and patience. I haven't been to the B&S forum here in ages, but years ago there were much better deals to be had there. Try looking if you want to save some $$$ or maybe upgrade the quality for the same price.

How much can a suit jacket's chest and waist be taken in without messing it up? I picked up a Zegna suit in a Trofeo fabric I absolutely love at a great price but it's a size too big (54EU vs 52EU).

Many thanks.  Much appreciated.

Resell it, you cannot fix a suit that is a size too big. (I'm assuming the shoulders are too big as well)
post #26996 of 28325
The shoulders are actually pretty good, it's really just the chest and waist

Post a few good pictures standing still and I'll tell you if it's worth keeping or not. You can pm them to me.

Another option: Allen Edmonds has (for reasons unknown) opted to discontinue the snuff suede version of their Neumok, an unlined wingtip oxford. First's can be ordered through their website marked down to $197. Seconds through their outlet stores this week can be had as part of their 2/250 sale.

Can anyone explain to me the merits of hand stitching the lapel line? I don't mean the actual lapel itself, but the line on which the fabric is folded outward to form the lapel. I have a few jackets, and some have the lapel lines hand stitched (I can feel the stitches while running my fingers along the line) while others are simply folded back onto the jacket itself. 

Can anyone enlighten me on this? Thank you.

Are you confusing hand canvassing / fused construction for stitches?
