Myself and another SF member went to a local shop and let her take a shot at them. Frankly, I wanted them to see and measure explicitly how wide I wanted it along the entire length of my leg and that is something better done in a shop... I had her take from only the inseam as to keep the tags intact. Very happy with her work. We didn't bother her with chain stitching yet as I wanted a double fold style as I prefer that and thus a chain stitch would go unnoticed. I used my RRLs as a victim to see how it would work out... I plan to go to her again, but see if she can chain stitch, otherwise my pants may be taking an airplane to San Fran...

Cool. Does she has a chain stitch sewing machine? Won't be able to do it without a specialized machine

24 now, first pair of 404s from Barneys sale at 21, then 403s a few months later and then this pair from B&S

that is actually kind of mean. cruel and unusual, just as mean as the anatomica photo from earlier today.

your boots are awesome.

Cords today with my rather mild addiction to these reverse chamois this week.

Additionally did anyone get pics of the ravello Indy from Fransboone? What last was it on?

i will likely pop my reverse chamois cherry next time these become available.

so nice.

I also finally got my RRLs back from being hemmed and tappered. I am super happy with them as well, I was soo excited to wear them that I wore them on a Wednesday! :-) Only did a half day due to a doctor's appointment, so it was too bad... :-)

I've been meaning to pick up a pair of natty CXL PTB. Followed that link and couldn't pass up the plantation sole version they have over there. You definitely just saved me some coin, thanks for the heads up!

Curious.. what size did FB have available earlier on the Indy order?

Also.. I purchased my first pair of Alden's 6 years ago (Cigar PTB) a short while later I picked up a pair of Whiskey NST shoes and then switched jobs to a very casual dress code. 2 years ago moved into a business casual workplace, came across a Leffot pre-order and picked those up and in the last 10 months I have picked up 11 pairs. With 3 more confirmed. F my bank account..

LoL. I don't even know how many I have bought this past year... Not a question that I have bought too many. I also have several pairs of shoes in production right now. I am giving the 10.5B and C lasts some exercise... :-) I am now trying to avoid getting on more lists, as believe it or not, they actually come into flourish eventually, and it appears they do all at the same stinking time...

 

From what I saw, they had 3 sizes all in D widths available. I just remember 10.5D being one of them, which is too big for me.

 

Edit: They had 7, 8, 8.5, and 9.5D available.

Hey, I would argue that several of their designs work well in a formal environment as well... :-)

Thanks Mike,
Glad northing in my big foot size.

Before others come out here and say you just sinned against the world, it technically is against SF policy to post ads in their threads... I can see that you are new here, so welcome, but you may want to post up posts with content relevant to the discussion and add it to your signature as an alternative.
