    Travel wear for tropical climates

    Gentlemen, It's been a few years since my previous overland trip in Asia, but in November this year I'll try finding my way through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Although my wardrobe covers business and city vacations well, it is entirely unprepared for beaches, jungles and overcrowded buses...

    Shopping in Oslo?

    There's only a few shops worth visiting. Some suggestions: Skomaker Dagestad (Josefines gate 2) - Norway's only proper shoe shop. Small, but good. Closes early, though. Royal Menswear (Holbergs gate 30) - Mostly a MTM shop, but has various OTR items as well. Ferner Jacbosen (Stortingsgata...

    My Balmoral Boots

    Thanks, Wilhelm. Did you go with the lasted shoe trees as well? What was the damage? I wanted to wait until I had checked if the shoes actually fit before ordering the lasted trees, so no, not yet. I can't remember how much they cost.

    My Balmoral Boots

    1) how many times did you visit Springline? Was it just for the initial measurements, or also when the lasts were finished? I make it to London a few times a year, but not sure I could always carve out time for multiple trips to Northampton. Just once. Cliff picked the lasts up at Spring Line...

    My Balmoral Boots

    Curious, did you try a mock sample shoe with Cliff in order to test the last? No. Very nice color on the suede. In terms of Springline's prices, is it still 190 sterling to get a bespoke last made up? Yes, that's what I paid.

    My Balmoral Boots

    Yes, I visited Spring Line in person, which was a nice experience. The last maker easily spotted the cause of why most shoes don't fit me particularly well, and suggested ways to avoid those problems. He also helped me choose a nice last shape in line with my preferences. Cliff met me at Spring...

    My Balmoral Boots

    I received my suede shoes from Cliff today, and love them: They are made on a bespoke last from Spring Line of Northampton and fit my oddly shaped feet better than any other shoe I've worn. Cliff got all my requested details right, both with regards to fit and to style. Now I see no reason to...

    Suggestions for overcoat fabric needed

    Hello, Two winters ago I had a black, single breasted overcoat made. The fabric was a no-name cashmere. Quite okay for the price I paid, but this winter I intend to upgrade. I'm mostly set on a design for my second overcoat. I like old-fashioned military greatcoats, and want a long...

    Have you got the shoes yet? No. I just got back from my travels and paid for the lasts today. Cliff will get them in three weeks, and then start work on the shoes.
