Perhaps someone that actually has a 257 with the handle grip could shed some light on how it is attached to the straps, but I'd say you are probably right and that it is rivetted or sewn to the straps somehow. That may mean that installing it is not a simple task, however for $10 for the handle grip itself, I was happy to have a play around with it

Sure, the one I posted is the semi cutaway, most of my older ones are the full cutaway. This one needs 1cm added to the points which I'll fix on the next ones I order. Like I think I mentioned to you, I always email them and ask for a softer interlining because the standard one is too stiff for me, but I also have a bad neck so it's more for my own comfort.

I want to wait and see how the Kamura's fit first before I order anymore though. They should be here late this week I hope.

I was going to ask him where he got it but not too long ago I saw on his tumblr that it was already answered. Damn shame that it's made by a no-name indian artisan guy.

 

Is anyone saying that it does?

 

(I agree with what you've written, by the way).

Bearded since age 19 here (4 years and counting).

 

There's a push at school for me to shave it off when the kids raise money in the 'shave for a cure' fundraiser in a month or two.

I think P Johnson's latest email is a very good example of what a beginner's business shirt wardrobe should look like, so I'm posting it for posterity:



5 blue,
1 navy bus/cas
2 pink
1 white

Personally, I'd add another white, and a very light mauve/purple, and probably add in a few french cuffs somewhere.

Depends on one's occupation.

 

Personally I have more white shirts ... so a ratio of say 40% plain white, 30% plain blue and 30% patterns (stripes/check). I wear ties most days and find a plain shirt alot easier to mix up my ties than on a patterned base.

 

Patrick had the above denim shirt on yesterday and Id have to say its one of my favourite fabrics - especially in a non-office setting.

Cheers man, I think I'll go the wide spread.

They've not been very good at emailing me back considering I'm a paid customer...

For me I like white, a very pale blue and a Bengal stripe.

I find shirting really depends on your complexion - as someone with darker features I pull off white and pale blue easily, whilst some blonde guys I know should stick almost exclusively to a mid blue...

I used to have a beard until she started complaining it was scratchy against her skin

Was in Rekaris earlier and saw a nice pair of G and Gs on the counter waiting for some attention.

Belong to anyone here?

I am swathed in wool today. Feels great.

For those who have been caught short, Howard Yount still has heavier weight trousers on discount in some sizes...

I wore my new pea coat at long last.
