If so, I think I'll have to buy one.

Yup the natural/vachetta gains patina over time ... Depends how you use it i.e. the more it is held and exposed to sunlight the faster itnwill darken.

Unless the suits are a different return policy you need to pay fornthe return yourself. I had some polos that didnt fit and was quoted $45 for return postage. Youd need to get dimensions and weight and compare postage back to austin texas

I think with Kent's price point, he shouldn't have to cover the cost of postage and it's part of how you can get the pricing he offers. If he had to cover it the suits would just be $100 more to make up the cost, so it all evens out really. Certainly if it's his fault it's a different story but he shouldn't have to cover it if someone buggers up there own measurements, which is how the majority of online MTM's stuff up I'd say. It's just part and parcel of using a service that you are fitting yourself with. Therein lies the advantage of something like what Rob's going to be doing, having an experienced fitter to do all that and bear the responsibility of mistakes.

Anyway, here is today's fit -

Suit: MJ Bale

Charlie: what I'm saying is he says to get the RTM first and then send it back to get it changed, free of charge.

If you order a custom one you pay to have it shipped and altered naturally as its your fault.

But, even selecting a custom one first, it prompts you to order the RTM first to have it changed at no extra cost (you pay shipping though)

I've been going for the last 18 months after doing a great deal of running. Great way to mix things up and get off your legs.

Not wanting to get into a 'who's the fittest' debate but the Crossfit Games are coming up. It's worth taking a look as they are some amazing athletes...

Couldnt put my money on anyone but Froning

I get what you are saying, no worries. I don't think anyone should have to pay a fee/cost to swap anything over, assuming it's in it's original state. But postage is s seperate issue and most vendors (myself included) actually lose money on postage as it is to be competitive.

What I'm saying is his pricing is very good, because he doesn't cover things like postage or having someone turn up to do the fitting, so if he did you would be paying a higher price for the suit, like what you would pay at say P.Johnson for example. I'd say you still come out well in front doing it online, but you also bear the responsibility for fitting yourself and the costs involved in the back and forth. Just part of purchasing on the internet.

Yep, I get you.


Understandable - I have heard brilliant reports on the suits and shirts. So Kudos to him.

And of course, once measurements are down pact it would be effortless ordering in the future.

Froning doesn't even run a crossfit training program - he does 5/3/1 which you can buy for $20 online. 

A lot of test/dbol cycles too and probably halotestin.

It was a bit of a wait, as they had some production problems, but the final product is very good. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)















So...................................................Topy? devil.gif

Very nice 8ace. I've eyed these off myself (actually was looking at their gunboats) but was hesitant given some mixed reviews about the shop's customer service. Also compared to Herrings etc. (not to mention a bricks and mortar shop) they are a bit of an unknown quantity and probably not quite as slick with online sales, so I shied. I'm glad you didn't though and decided to share with us; they certainly win points for uniqueness.

Apparently Robinson's make their shoes on site in Northern Ireland rather than having them made for them as Herrings do. And they're obviously trying to appeal to the US market with the shoes named after Scots-Irish descended US Presidents... anyway I hope they survive given their product is as good as you demonstrate.

As for a Topy, maybe that's an option once the lovely imprint of Carrickfergus Castle wears off the sole... I'd just feel bad about covering that with a sole protector!

Thank you all kind sirs for your help in finding that elusive tie.

 

At this time, unless Tobias can find something better, the Kent Wang grenadine fits my requirements. 

 

Also, whilst on Kent Wang, this PS caught my eye.  How would you pull this off?  

 

Chinese brocade light blue

Could work as upholstery for your settee if you can source a bigger swatch.

Cheers. How did you find dealing with Leather Soul and (sneaking in another sneaky question that could probably be answered with a bit of research) how's the sizing with these more casual Aldens?
