    The greatest difference in width to be absolutely safe is zero. Trying to stretch shoes is a very unpredictable business.

    I'm considering this overcoat (at a lower price) and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the quality and perhaps even insight into the maker (the seller said there are no brand identifying marks). Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

    It's ok. We don't trek over here because it typically smells like stale, old farts.

    But we do know about denim repairs.

    Is a Chester Barrie sportscoat for 40 bucks a good deal? Perfect condition, label says "Chester Barrie Hand tailored".

    acecow: Of course. I'm a big fan of that "fit" thing. Thanks, I thought so.

    XKxRome0ox: It's kind of a grey tweedy affair, it's just up my alley. No pics right now.

    you better grab it before someone else does
    i think any decent looking jacket under $50 is a good deal
    and if it's of good material and well made, that's even better

    Chester Barrie is amazing. There were no more OTR pieces made under that name after they moved their production to Asia. Yours should be one of the very nice pieces. I bought a CB jacket for my father and my tailor was oozing all over it. Buy with confidence.

    Thanks guys, I jumped on it immediately because it was just the kind of jacket I was looking for and I knew it was considered fine tailoring. Just wanted some reassuring.
