    great list. really nice post. would love to see some of the non-RTW japanese brands have a line for NMWA (this would be higher end than Vass likely)

    Vox had a pair of fagliano boots made for him. Amazing boot trees by them as well.

    One company you should consider for the less expensive if Correa:

    "Correa: The cobblers that time forgot. Three generations of them work in a shoebox-size store that’s crammed with samples, boxes, and display cases of vintage tools. Waiting for them to custom-stain a pair of wingtips (right)–one of the classic styles they make in prêt-à-porter or bespoke–was like passing time in an old-fashioned men’s club, as a steady stream of young, old, trendy, and conservative Porteños stopped in to shoot the breeze and pick up their orders. Custom shoes start at around $350 and take about two weeks; off-the-peg models are about $200. Come with your Spanish shoemaking phrasebook or hope Damian Pelizoli, the owner’s grandson, is in if you must converse in English. In Abasto, away from the main retail drags, which adds to the allure. Mario Bravo 750, 54-11-4861-7344, www.calzados correa.com.ar"

    I've personally been to Correa - amazing values there and great items. The possibilities are endless. Think Vass of South America.

    I would ignore any recommendations by people who don't plan on buying anything and just wasting your time.

    The best shoes in the world are coming out of Japan right now, and there's zero vendors in the states or Europe. Japanese RTW like Perfetto would be amazing, but most Japanese RTW is above that $500-600 sweet spot. Not to mention the difficult logistics.

    ....but I imagine there's a reason for there being no vendors thus far

    If I spent more time drinking beer by a campfire, I'd totally get this cap.

    Plus one to shirts in the 100-175 range.

    Lol at the EG misunderstanding. That was epic.

    Outside of that Ima sit back and watch Greg work his magic.

    I was think the same thing. As a US M sometimes L, but an XL in the Japanese brands I've tried, I'm not sure how my wide-ish size 11 feet translate to Japanese shoes. Probably not very easily.

    I realize were going into s/s, but for next year's cold season maybe moorer coats? i think bloomies (barneys?) might carry a basic model, but i think the better ones maybe unavailable here.

    p.s. love my tie your ties!

    Anyone have experience with the sizing on the Inis Meain charcoal aran button-neck sweater?

    For instance, the sizing guide says a medium is 40.2 inches, while in most other IM sweaters a medium runs at 40.9.

    Did people still take size in the button-neck as other IM sweaters? Or did you size up?

    Thanks.
