    @in stitches & @sparrow

    Trying out a new kid on the block...Cobbler Union. U.S. based company, Spanish made shoes at a price point between Meermin and Carmina. Helpful that they are U.S. based and free shipping with free returns. From a first pass and wearing around the house, seem to be a very nice shoe for the money ($370 with current coupon). Styling is more to my liking than most U.S. brands/makers as well.

    Edit: thanks to @vriche for posting his pair and introducing me to the brand

    Looks like they make some pretty decent shoes. I like the antiquing on them. Let us know how you feel about them after the break in etc. :slayer:

    Found a new shirt maker. I liked the collar and needed a linen shirt, so I thought I'd try them out. They've got a store within walking distance and are [​IMG]
    not particularly expensive.

    I will be sure to report back. Per Daniel at CU, modeled after Aston Martin, not Bugatti [​IMG] Seemed a bit gimmicky, but doesn't bother me when wearing them.

    OK I have just joined the forum after lurking for a good long time until I was sure I wouldn't make myself look COMPLETELY stupid (I still expect to look stupid compared to the masters of this fine universe but I can handle that).
    [​IMG]
    Here is my most recent purchases (I am taking the chance to ramp up my suit wardrobe before relocating from Singapore to London, where the weather and relative office formality will allow more wearing).

    Luigi Borrelli Navy Blue Wool Suit

    [​IMG]

    Sartorio Napoli Blue Solid Suit (85% wool, 15% silk)

    [​IMG]
    Plus a shirt and tie to round out the order from shop the finest:

    Thanks! Moving at the end of this month, transferring with the same company.

    Will be working in the City, so I wanted more CBD appropriate Navy Suits but with just a bit more character than a plain dark navy solid (which I have already, before the SF Police castigate me).

    Yes, Indeed


    As far as I've understand, they actually have supplies both from Corneliani, and other Italian unkown maker/s.

    Suits and over 1000$ sportcoat range are Corneliani, the 600$ range made by other italian maker, I've posted the different inside tags some time ago in another thread.

    Not exactly a new 'purchase', since it's my own brand. But it's a special suit made just for Pitti and is not included in our regular payments to the tailors, so it kinda qualifies for the thread anyway. A 3 piece blue linen suit.

    @EFV That looks superb. :nodding:

    As you say it is your own brand, but is it yours?

    Indeed it is, or rather, I'm currently starting it up with a friend/business partner.
