Maybe even water off a duck's bag.

Good to see that you've got a full stick, Fox!  

 

:p

 

I've got a full-stick Maglia umbrella that I got from Rene at Deer Style here in Brisbane, which is very nice. 

 

If you don't mind ordering from Howard Yount (where the service/communication is non-existent, but the actual goods are very decent), you could get an Italian full-stick umbrella for US$165 + shipping:

A newbie mistake. I think I have used an old cloth when applying dark brown cream, which ultimately stained my tan colour with dark/black stains.

I tried using Renomat to remove it but with not much success. 

How do you use Renomat properly? there is no instruction other than the pictogram on the bottle. 

Any other tips to remove the black stains? 

Other tips to archive a proper vintage style shade on a tan shoes?

After many trials and errors,I think I havr accommplished what I intended.

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.

 

Sup? What's your budget like?

 

I mean there's Ueki at Ciccio. About AUD 5,000 for a sportscoat.

Worth spending this sort of money. Or should I just buy a full solid stick around similar price range. Fox and Briggs are nicer but prices are too expensive .
Please share your thoughts.

 

If you're ever in Hong Kong - or if you can get them to deliver, Leung So Kee's whangee handle umbrellas are about $60. Comes with a lifetime warranty for repair (broken/bent spokes, etc.) They've been making umbrellas since 1885. On an island that regularly experiences typhoons. You're probably in good hands.

 

Their website is down now, unfortunately. Try back in a few days, I reckon.

Gerry and FXH will hopefully be able to provide more info on Tailor Caid. I haven't been there so I'm afraid that I can't comment but the photos that I see on the internet look nice, particularly if you like Ivy/Trad style tailoring.

 

The two tailors in Tokyo that I've heard most about are Ginza Tailor and Azabu Tailor. 

 

Ginza Tailor does bespoke, whereas Azabu Tailor does MTM, using a pattern which they adjust to suit your needs, based on an existing block. AT is very affordable, whereas Ginza Tailor is more costly. 

 

I don't know whether people in either GT or AT speak English, so it might be difficult to order something, but it could be worth trying. 

 

Ginza Tailor (or "Gintei", as they're colloquially known): http://www.gintei.com/

 

Azabu Tailor: http://www.azabutailor.com/order/

 

As an aside, I believe that Kazuna in Sydney used to work for Azabu Tailor.

I never had issues with HY. They are on my list. But really want a bamboo handle.

Thanks Nabil. I think this would be most suitable option for me.
