When deciding on who to work with for my first SR suit, i did spend most of a day speaking with some of the various houses.'
I had some non-Savile Row bespoke experience (so, was familiar with the process and what areas I liked and did not like from my prior experiences/suits) and had also...
what size shoe are you wearing that you would fit undershirts/etc. in there? socks and belts and things easy to fit in shoes are not the issue - two suits, workout wear, two laptops (and associated peripherals), large number of files - and then trying to fit in two pairs of shoes are.
I travel almost every 3-4 days/week for work. I carry on my luggage but between dress shoes and runnnig shoes for my workout, the shoes always tend to take up the most space in my bags.
I am wondering - is it damaging to my high quality shoes to take only one pair a week but wear them on 3-4...
That's okay ... I'll forego that extra button. Huntsman (and Richard Anderslon) have long had a preference for the one-button coat ... and now that even Anderson & Sheppard will make up a SB coat w/ a one-button closure ... I'm a happy camper all around.
Had I listened to Brian
tennis shoes AND 2 pairs of dress shoes for 4 days? excessive.
traveling requires compromises. 24 hour shoe rotation and 3lb spring-loaded cedar shoe trees are things I give up.
yeah, i guess ill have to keep checking - no way i am wearing one pair of dress shoes 4 days straight
you guys must know better tricks than i do for packing a roll-on.
for a 4 day trip, I basically need at least 2 suits, 2 pairs of dress shoes, 1 pair of running shoes, dress shirts, undershirts, dress socks, workout clothes, workout socks, casual pants/shirt...even if i wear the suit and 1 pair...
- He was open to the fact that people may frequent more than one Row house, though he noted it was more common to move from one to another than frequent a couple at once. He did say that a number of his New York customers (just back from a trip there) were ordering suits from 2 or 3 houses and...
my experience with chan suggests they are very, very open to trying/excuting new things at the customer request. my issue with them has always been that they do not seem to have an innate sense of balance and proportion - so you end up with things such as less than ideal buttoning points, skirt...
excellent - i would be very interested in hearing details of the process and eventual pics of a richard james commission..
i would think richard james would be a good choice for a slim, modern looking cut
vox, im leaning 'interesting', so far
do you prefer them on your khakis too? ive never been able to find a pair that pulled off pleats well and always assumed it was the thickness of the material that was the obstacle (and was thinking it might be a similar issue with the cavalry twill?)
