    Antique Leather from 1775

    I thought the leather aficionados would appreciate this picture: it's of a book I bought whilst I was in Switzerland this week. It was published in 1775 and is still in its original binding.

    Northampton haul

    Thought I'd post a few pics of recent acquisitions from Northampton. First up, the JL Canasta. More to follow.

    The company formerly known as chester barrie

    After the downfall of Chester Barrie, I understand that the company has been reformed: the name has been bought by a consortium, and the manufacturing wing is a separate company now entitled "The Cheshire Clothing Company". I've heard that the latter came into being after a management...

    Austin reed one-button suits

    I've noticed that many of the gents who frequent this site are partial to one-button suits. Austin Reed are now offering a line of superior suits - they feature horn buttons, functional cuffs, trousers with adjustable bands and buttons for braces - and many of these suits have one-button coats...

    Rubber topsoles

    Someone has recommended that I have rubber topsoles put on some of my leather soled shoes in order to make them last longer. Can anyone think of a reason not to have this done?

    Hong kong

    I know that a few of the forum members live in Hong Kong. I've been many times myself, and have had suits made at Sam's Tailors. Now, I can remember having a conversation with the manager at New and Lingwood who reckoned that the suits from Sam's are as good as New and Lingwood bespoke suits...
