    Length fine, back waist should take in, back upper body extra fabric should take in. Sleeve length good.

    overall it looks pretty good consider it's unaltered.

    Do any of you guys have C&J shoes based on both the 337 and 325 lasts. My Belgraves(337) 7.5E UK fit well and am wondering should I stick with 7.5E UK fot the 325.
    Thanks.

    I've got the Weymouth on the 337 and the Pembroke on the 325 - both in 9.5E UK. The Pembroke feels slightly roomier but then again, I'm comparing an oxford to a derby/blucher so it may not apply to you.

    Thanks Gerry. It's the coniston boot(325) I'm after. I suspect the same size as the 337 will be a good fit but I'm not certain as I had heard the 325 was a tad wider if not longer. I already got stuck with the Coniston in size 8E UK which were too big esp across the vamp so I needed some pointers on the 7.5E before I go ahead.

    I usually just wear Eton shirts that i'm happy with. But how is the quality of Eton shirts compare to Borrelli, Truzzi, Loro Piana and all other italian high quality shirts.

    Maybe I should start invest on the italian brands instead...?

    Help :)!

    Thanks

    I have just joined Styleforum [​IMG]

    Why the long waiting period for the ability to create a new thread?[​IMG]

    That is why this thread exists, newbies like to make new threads, and there is a line. Too much riff raff to go through :D

    Surely you mean 3-roll-2? Unless you are expecting your tailor to magically make a button-hole disappear?

    Changing a 3-button to a 3-roll-2 is not easy anyway, if you just press the lapel into the new position it may stay there for a while but will not quite be right because the break line of the lapel is determined by the cut of the collar and by the structure inside the coat, not just by pressing.
