    The Watch Appreciation Thread - Part two (Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Jaeger LeCoultre,

    The jeweler just got back to me-- they sent it to Nomos, and even though I'd not bothered to file the warranty card (or keep it where I could find it), they said there was no excuse for it falling apart in this way. So as far as I can tell, it will be repaired and returned to the US with no...

    Home for audio files?

    Totally non-expert. But they are one of the few sources of this kind offered by Goodwin’s High End, which makes an effort at carrying good stuff.

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Pat Patch pockets and a pair of trousers and you will be able to go both ways. Alden at LL did one in the Brisa quality that came out very well in his jacket.

    Spring Ram has a hopsack or two, which breathe uncommonly well in spite of the listed weight.

    Home for audio files?

    Aurender looks to have a convenient, if expensive way to handle all of this. One model even has its own DAC, so a one-box solution. And, I assume, it is easy to port out the files to use on another server or iPhone, etc.

    Bins from Target, or large cooler chests (available at places like West Marine).

    Is Blue Riband now sold as Abacus? I don't see it on the website.

    The 9oz Fresco is dependable. Also, there is a similar 3-ply Finmeresco that is great.

    The Anderson & Sheppard Expatriates Thread

    As a side note, John Hitchcock at A&S had the royal warrant for many years and probably still does. But his son Steven is also making things for the King.

    I would look at that. My own pair is a few decades old, so can’t help too specifically.

    There are some Fox examples, but perhaps not high twist. Still, barathea works remarkably well for white trousers.

    Nice. Current product?

    Moleskin? There are a lot of those out there.

    What is the proper fit for leather loafers?

    Crockett & Jones Harvard is often a good choice. In any case, CJ has several lasts they build on. If you have one you like, they will do a special order in the color and material you want. If you don't mind a little more fragility, the Stride collection from Baudoin & Lange has a lot of...

    The Hong Kong Tailors Thread

    Ascot Chang's prices for CMT are quite reasonable if you stay away from high-supers cloth (which take more effort to handle well). I am not sure why, but cotton fabric in HK is really expensive. So if you use one of their in-house cotton poplins to get the pattern right, they will then be...

    What is the proper fit for leather loafers?

    Or MTO. Crockett & Jones and Vass both offer special orders in standard sizes on their regular lasts. You could almost certainly split between two sizes.

    And yet, it was a different beast some decades ago. So there is wiggle room in quality.

    Has anyone had reason to try Harris Tweed of Hebrides? I know there are a lot of individual weavers who can put their own stamp on things, but I was wondering if this outlet was better than others at the moment. Their website wound up on my Facebook feed.

    Good neutral, flexible choice. Unless you really are out in the sticks and don't want to look like a doctor visiting from town. (In Boston, there was a time not too long ago when pretty much every doctor wore grey herringbone Harris tweed-- for every occasion.)

    If you know the Fox Air works, go for that.
