post #9856 of 48617

Gents,

 

I have 3 pairs of Woodlore Mens Ultra shoe trees, BNIB, with blank name plates, up for grabs.

 

The only catch is they're all size Small, for US 6.5E-8E according to the Cedarville website.

 

PM me if interested.

A shoulder with no padding or wadding? Rollino I think it's called?

Again, appreciate the feedback fxh and lennier. Will definitely stop by to have a chat with them. Just thought I'd scout ahead smile.gif Their starting prices are indeed quite attractive. However, I suspect the $1500 starting price will be for a fused suit in wool-polyester fabric with plastic buttons thrown in for free.

@ I am DIL. As I understand it, the Con Rollino had some wadding along the sleevehead to achieve the roped shoulder. I don't see any other way the roping could be achieved.

I think the seam is pressed open, allowing the shoulder to appear "roped", without any assistance from wadding. The seam allowances are folded in opposite directions and then ironed flat against the cloth... does this sound right, meister

Damn, I missed out on Blah's shoe tree bonanza. Anyone else know of anywhere good to get decent trees atm?

 

Also, signed up not long ago to begin the journey, Hello!

This is news to me. No wadding, but being able to achieve a roped shoulder. Learn something new everyday.

It was news to me too -- I heard it's fairly difficult to do, though.

Hello, and welcome to the Forvm. Your best bet for shoes trees is to find someone in the same area and split shipping.

You're obviously a man of discerning literary tastes, tobiasj. A bit like myself. Indeed it is.

You've lost me... here are roped shoulders... http://www.styleforum.net/t/276257/king-of-the-roped-shoulder

Here is spalla camicia... http://www.styleforum.net/t/217821/spalla-camicia-in-rtw

Love Viz, though I'm more of a Roger Mellie man myself smile.gif

On another note: does anyone else find it incredible that MC and SW&D exist side-by-side in a state of harmony, more or less? Every time I go on there (inadvertently, usually) I don't know whether to laugh or cry, but I do know that the proper response is either one or the other.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about, and a relatively restrained one: http://www.styleforum.net/t/280641/yohji-or-how-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-looser-fit-yohji-yamamoto-thread#post_5070993

I know this has probably been commented on many, many times in the past, but I'm a comparatively new member, and the gulf in aesthetics between the two sub-forums just seems to be SO massive...

I've always been a bit more Finbar Saunders.

I often wonder which VIZ character blahman is. Any suggestions??

I have to say I don't mind a lot of Yamamoto stuff on the runway. I think there is a certain elegance of line and certainly a nod to the traditional Japanese past. Sure it isn't something that you wear to a board meeting or your annual appraisal but it has a place Ina world were jeans and sneakers are the on,y alternative to suits and ties.
