Ah good question and no split personalities fortunately. Owen and James is a combination of myself and my business partner's middle names.
"James" has a great eye for menswear, travels the world e.g. Pitti Uomo and meets with suppliers etc. He is shy, not so great with computers and prefers to do what he does;)
He is the guy modelling the trousers in the Owen and James affiliate thread as he gets the samples to his sizing to wear for a while to ensure that a) its something that looks good and b) its something that we can say the quality stands up after a season of wear.
So by the time we get new product in stock we have personally been wearing/abusing/going google eyes over our samples for a good 6 mths:)post #17088 of 679468/29/12 at 6:53pmpost #17089 of 679468/29/12 at 7:03pmpost #17090 of 679468/29/12 at 7:54pmpost #17091 of 679468/29/12 at 11:43pmnot sure how many of you have seen this, or if that is you with the beard.

I don't know how much experience you guys have had with using Saphir Renomat, but I bought some recently and gave a couple of pairs of shoes several doses of it over a couple of days. It does an amazing job of stripping away all the old polish from the leather (and it wouldn't entirely surprise me if it stripped away your fingerprints - I used rubber gloves while applying it).
I then used Renovateur and left it on overnight, brushed it off this afternoon and my shoes look like new! I mean they literally look like they did when I first took them out of the box! Amazing!post #17093 of 679468/29/12 at 11:57pm
I wonder if the author reads SF - he certainly mentions a lot of the usual suspects, e.g. Kent Wang and this:post #17094 of 679468/30/12 at 12:04amQuote:Originally Posted by TehBunny
American Tailors; I always pass that shop when going out to get dinner with friends; always looked smexy from the front door but thought it would have crazy prices.
So.....anyone have any general pricing from them (their website is dated) mainly looking at the Isaia shirts and then the shoes.
Sorry I feel v.rude quoting this post but got no answer and thinking of stopping by at American Tailors this weekend; and the question is still as above.
Thanks Againpost #17095 of 679468/30/12 at 12:06amQuote:
dont know about the isaia shirts, but the shoes are competitvely priced. i bought c&j handgrades on sale for 400 dollars. i think full price is 600 for bench grade and 700 for handgrade.
if youre going to spend isaia money on shirts, you might be inclined to consider your mtm shirt options.post #17096 of 679468/30/12 at 12:29amQuote:Originally Posted by eightace

tbh, who wants that. actually, i dunno, which kind of shoes you're talking about, though.post #17097 of 679468/30/12 at 2:15amQuote:
Not cheap but not Harrolds prices either.
Just be polite - ask if its ok to have a squiz, don't put your mitts over everything, respect if they have other customers or are other wise busy, don't write down details of shoes to buy later online, don't try on stuff and don't pretend you are there to buy unless you are. Simple really.
Nice people, great service.post #17098 of 679468/30/12 at 2:18am
Headed over to London, Amsterdam and Paris in December, and looking to visit SuitSupply for suits. Anywho, I've bought from Austin Reed before, in person, when I was there last, and I was a 36S in their contemporary cut or a 36S in their traditional, and then send to a tailor (difference is level of waist suppression). I got an email from Austin Reed and they have the following on sale, including free postage to australia:
Should I wait until I'm in Europe or should I get this? I was chasing something like this anyway. I think it's pretty nice for the price. It'd be fused most likely.
Thoughts? I don't have the budget for PJohnson (student here) and will be starting full time employment next year, but the as a field, the employers are notoriously poorly dressed.
A solid white shirt or very pale blue with a blue tie, or even a burnt orange tie would sit nicely, I thought? But I'm happy to defer to more sartorially-inclined minds.post #17099 of 679468/30/12 at 2:59ampost #17100 of 679468/30/12 at 3:09am
Sorry, I should be clear - the 36S in their traditional cut fits like a box. Hence the need for waist suppression, I'm not particularly thin. I'm 5'6"-7" and vary between 70kg-75kg. I'm a 38S for suitsupply, so.
I didn't notice the pleat though - excellent pickup, thanks! It's been ignored now.
