    Do Hand Welted sole shoes need special skill to Resole than GoodYear Welted sole ?

    As Son of Saphir mentioned, resoling the shoe on its original last is paramount to returning the shoe to its original fit. Any deviation from a factory resole is hit or miss, mostly miss. I know this through personal experience.

    Handwork on shirts is a needless affectation. Suits are a different thing.

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

    First corduroy suit, would brown or green be a better choice?

    Given the choices, I vote brown. But I prefer blue, in a cotton/silk blend.

    What steps would it take to convert this Double Breasted Jacket (quarter lined linen) to Single Breasted (2 button)?

    It would probably take more tailoring time to fix that jacket than it would to make a new one. And of course, time = money. And those DB buttons will most likely leave a lasting impression on the fabric.

    HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014)

    Yeah, there’s a big difference between fashion and style; the former fades, the latter endures. This style was first seen nearly a century ago…..

    Questions about "luxury" shirting

    I‘ve been using Charvet for the last 25 years (and Turnbull & Asser before that) and have never heard the term ‘thread count’ mentioned. So, that leads me to believe that it is a marketing ploy most likely borrowed from the purveyors of high-end bedding.

    What's Your Go-to Polo Shirt?

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

    I waited over a year for a particular PP and that was in 1983, transacted through Tiffany, a prominent purveyor of luxury items. So I’m not sure that you’re identifying a recent development.

    Where should I buy my first high-MTM or bespoke suit?

    Patch pockets for groom - little "dont" or big "dont"?

    If the wedding ceremony is performed in a church or synagogue by a priest or rabbi, then jetted pockets are required. If the wedding ceremony is being performed at the city hall by a judge, then flap pockets are the right call. If the wedding ceremony is being performed at a beach by a dicey...

    Strange Kiton linen Shorts sizing

    With RTW trousers/shorts, choose those which have the desired fit across the thighs and buttocks, regardless of waist size….then have a tailor take in or let out the waistband.

    Linen trouser recommendations for a tall man

    You need to shop for unhemmed trousers, then visit a tailor to have them finished to the proper length. Generally speaking, pre-hemmed trousers are aimed at the low to moderate segment of the market with fabric quality commensurate.

    Advice on Summer Suit Fabrics

    One consideration when choosing a DB summer suit/jacket is that it will wear considerably warmer than a SB due to the extra layers of materials covering your midsection when properly buttoned…..as a DB should always be.
