    Books on sartorial matters

    Cuffthis: what about Keers, A Gentleman's Wardrobe? Of the books you have in your list, which are the most indispensable and which two or three would you give to your sartorially-challenged best friend? Paul44: I'd like to read the Cary Grant article if you've got the time to do the...

    Henry Maxwell

    Glanced in the window of Foster & Sons on Jermyn St today. They also have some shoes by Henry Maxwell in the display. Does anyone know who makes these? Couple of models looked quite nice...

    Sales in London

    OK, I didn't get a suit anywhere. I wanted an everyday black suit for 'work' but there wasn't much choice. The only one in E&R was a 3 button peaked lapel "Cocktail Suit" with a paisley lining - bit blingtastic for my taste. There was also a lightweight two button black suit in...

    I will be in London for a quick trawl through the sales tomorrow. Actually, if I can pick up a £550 E&R suit for £300, I'll be pretty pleased...

    London and RTW

    The sales will still be on, but the best bargains will probably have been snapped up by then. You might want to consider visiting the Chester Barrie facxtory shop in Crewe. Having heard good things about CB on this forum and on Ask Andy I visited the shop a couple of weeks ago. I got two...

    UK Aquascutum suits

    The Ask Andy Forum seems to be down at the moment and I'd started a thread there about Aquascutum. Does anyone have any comments about the quality and styling of Aquascutum RTW suits in the UK. I'm going to be near the factory shop soon and thought I might drop in...

    New pair of brogues

    Thanks for the news, bengal-stripe. I will hang on until I can compare shoes made on the new last with the older lasts that I know work well for me (202 and 606). I have a very broad foot, so the 82 may represent a bit of a challenge, but we shall see... Regards, Puzzled

    New pair of brogues

    I want to buy a new pair of brown brogues or perhaps half-brogues.  Something in a darkish brown, fairly 'relaxed' (single sole, not double) that could be worn with jeans or moleskins on a Saturday, but that would polish up nicely for church on a Sunday.  I'm thinking of going to John Lobb...

    The bottom of your shoes

    And what about shoecream... should it be applied to the sole? Both polish or cream if used should be neutral in colour?

    Hangers

    Clearing out my father's house recently and have rescued two sets of excellent trouser hangers.  They are wooden bars, lined with felt, which then fold together clipping a pair of trousers at the ankles.  The hook part of the hanger then snaps into position to secure the trousers in place...

    Lobbs in jermyn st london

    Imelda Club membership already?  And I haven't even started on the high heels yet... Did you make it to the Jermyn Street sale today, Mr Stripe?  While I was there a slim, young man in a striped shirt carrying a Cleverley's bag came in.  Knew the assistants, knew his stuff.  Was it you?

    Lobbs in jermyn st london

    Members on this forum must bear some of the responsibility for the thrashing I've given my credit card in the last ten days. At the Lobb factory sale I bought two pairs of loafers (black Dorchester and tan buffalo Lopez) and a pair of deck shoes (gold barenia Trinidad). Then I went to Edward...

    Flaps on pockets

    OK, got the magnifying glass out... Certainly in some of the photos there are flaps which are tucked in. On others it's difficult to tell... Is "no flaps" an option?

    Flaps on pockets

    Just finished reading Simon Ball's new book, The Guardsmen. I noticed in the photographs that most of the men have the flaps on their suit jackets tucked in. Is it a solecism to have them out (like buttoning the bottom button), or is it only a matter of personal taste? Puzzled
