    I don't have any knowledge of said lasts, but on c&j 341 I use a 10.5 UK, and I use the same on 104. The c&j is slightly roomy. There is more room for the toes further ahead in the shoe than say 724 from AS. Can try on a pair of plaza myself in an hour or so, but I tend to fit size 10 e or d with most Aldens, but 10.5 works too.

    I'm getting really close to just kopping that linen Formosa. I'm trying to budget out things I'd like to get made up over F/W, and there really isn't anything left for that suit, but........

    The fabric has an excellent hand. The shoulder line is "settling down" as well. And the comfort is out of this world. F/W is more of my... off season. So I am getting my kopping done early.

    While this is technically correct, AS Handgrade is not a retail RTW line. At least it wasn't last I checked. MTO only. AS Exclusive is the highest grade of RTW that AS produces

    There is at least one place I know of that stocks AS Handgrade. But it might be the only one, and they have very little stock. They may have effectively just done a run of MTOs to carry in their store.

    I got the impression you could order series of Handgrade too. I might be mistaken, but I believe various stores do keep a stock of Handgrade, or at least has the possibility.

    Butcher stripe looks great Frank!

    For a different side of things, I had a bit too much fun over the past few days playing dress-up with a little bit of the first Schneider drop that we got in:

    I might not have the right terminology here, but the top part is a dark dark charcoal or maybe black basketweave and the rest of the body (from where you see the split in the picture to the right) is that black and dark blue basketweave. It's subtle but effective in person, and i tried to get the contrast to show up on the right a bit better.

    And from the other day:

    Thanks guys. It may be possible now but it wasn't when we ordered our make-ups. I know because I wanted to order handgrade.

    With hindsight, I'm happy we didn't. I think AS Exclusive is some if the best value out there.

    Agreed - Handgrade is very nice, but the pricing is way above Exclusive.

    Some moonbeam pics to find below that I asked for (blue, green, and brown grounds) this morning. If people are interested, I can get a thread started. I want to go look through the book again in person, but this should give @FrankCowperwood a good idea of Moonbeam. I'm digging 36674 at the moment. There are other ones I dig in the book which are not pictured (36659 through 36661 for example), but I didn't want to get greedy since this was a favor.

    That's long been a favorite of mine, along with 36682.

    74 is handsome, but not that easy to wear. You'll need dark trousers :wow:

    That's my concern; I've always liked it but have a hard time picturing it with a lot of the trousers I currently own.

    Here we go with the whole "needing to wear trousers" thing again. What, have you been talking to Westfield mall security or something?

    In seriousness I can see your point. Would work with denim. On the other hand I do tend toward brown and green trousers, so maybe this would be a tough one in those cases. Anyway, not quite sure if I will do another MTO before taking delivery of the Fox flannel. I don't doubt it will be awesomeness, but maybe it's prudent to see how it fits first...

    Speaking of Fox Flannel. Is it here yet? I'm going to go look on my porch.
