    Thanks for the help guys! The sleeves are unhemed and I folded them inside which may be causing some of the arm ripples. There is a good amount of shoulder extension and chest drape IRL, but the armholes are a little high/tight and the sleeve pitch looks a little off. Not sure sizing up is an option though. The trouser waist needs to come in about 2 inches already plus they need to be let out at the hip/thigh a little. I will try to get better pics in better light tomorrow.

    I'm crushed. Brunello side zips are half size too big. Leather, last and everything about these is sick. Need to get size 41 that is sold out.

    Damn. Close enough that a decent sized insole could work?

    Don't think so. Oh well, maybe Greg restock these in the future.

    It is very hard to give good quality feedback when you post a photo and add "I apologize for the crappy iPhone picture." If you want the best possible feedback, take a photo from more than one angle and in good, natural light. I would ignore any feedback based upon the photo you provided. There are many people here who can give good feedback but it can't happen without a good pic.

    What's the sizing advice on the Heschung chukka. I believe they run big but can't remeber the guidance. They seem to be pulling me in more with each passing day...

    I went half size down with the Nils chukka and a full size down with the Malko boot. Both seem to work well.

    With this season's Genet chukka it looks like I'd want to go down a full size like the Malko but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    I also find the armholes high n tight and will be looking into lowering/ widening a bit, which I'm told is not too big a deal for a competent tailor.




    I went down a full size and still find it a very comfortable, not particularly snug fit. It is an elongated last as Greg pointed out, so there's still a bit of room up front. Great look, great last, highly recommended (I went with oak brown).

    I wear a size 9.5 shoe. Both of my Heschung boots -- the Malko boot from NMWA and a derby boot with lace/strap closing from Yoox -- are marked size 8 1/2. Both NMWA and Yoox used the US size = UK size + 0.5 convention, so I bought the boots in size 9.

    Some shots from the trunk show. More to come later. Thanks a ton to all who came and all the kind words about the store. It was a little bit of love fest for me - not used to have so many people come to me to tell me they love my work (I used to work on Wall St...) Big thanks to the SF crew @LA Guy, @unbelragazzo, @Synthese and Jen. Also to Andrew from Inis Meain and to @NickPollica and Quinton from Eidos - the most passionate, dedicated and hard-working crew

    I might be biased but that looks pretty great IMHO. Shoulders and chest drape are very flattering. Left sleeve is quite clean. Right one could maybe use a bit of work if you're picky. You could go a little bit longer maybe, but not much. The picture also might be a little bit off based on the fact that your feet seem to look really big compared to the rest of you. Maybe that's just me.

    Side note, that shirt collar looks very nice on you.

    I have the Nils chukka and the Genet chukka, and I find that the fit is very similar, if not identical. I went down half a size in both. I wear US 9.5/UK 8.5 and I have them in size 9. There is a little room in the front, but I think that is as it is meant to be. I like both very much, although I am having the Genet re-soled in Dainite.
