Apparently Knight is one of the most widely-loathed prisoners in Australia. A completely dysfunctional individual. They actually had to pass a special Act of Parliament specifically to stop his serial vexatious litigations.

I would never have guessed.

 

 

Paging you, GN, JM, Fxh and others, looking for information on Bespoke tailors in Tokyo(thought of TC), thinking about getting something made up if they can do a month turn around.

I used to get the wide rib but they don't sell them anymore.

 

Also interested in this. I need to buy half a dozen pairs of business/dress socks but don't really want to spent $30/pair at this stage on brands like pantherella.

What would be a good option (for everyday business wear)?

Just suck it up, borrow some more money if you need to, and go MTM. You won't be satisfied with anything less.

Can confirm after spending time with several of them, this is the only way to go.

Pantherelas are like $15...

Otherwise, dark socks aren't exactly hard to find. Just go Best & Less or something.

Anyone here used a forwarding service to order things from Japan? Tenso looks relatively reputable, just wondering if anyone has any experiences/pitfalls to share.

From Japan is very good.

Not bad but doesn't compare to vintage-sewn by 3-balled Neapolitan granny.

Can anyone suggest a shop/website to purchase an Ettinger tote? I'm after one in brown leather, so far the Ettinger website is the only place I have come across.

I know that No Man Walks Alone (NMWA, a forum affiliate) were selling some Ettinger leathergoods, including a tote, some time back so you could check there to see if they still have some in stock.

 

Other than that, I've seen Ettinger wallets for sale on various sites online, but not Ettinger bags, so if NMWA don't have the colour you want, you might be stuck unless you want to visit the UK.

Thanks JM. Just checked out NMWA and they only have the black one in stock and it's on runout sale :/
