I have been thinking about getting some cotton trousers made that are on the dressier side - could be a winner.Might not be what you’re looking for, but button cuffs is - surprisingly - an option on SuitSupply custom trousers. No extra charge.
Manfred is the guy for resoling, as far as I can tell. But Evans do beautiful sole guards: they use a high quality Topy-like product from Vibram and bevel the edges so it's not as obvious. Countersunk toe plates too (although I've had nails pop out sometimes).Thanks for the Evans mention. Have an appointment to take in a couple of pairs of Lobbs that need attention. Will see how they do.
Manfreds have done good work - would recommend, but North Melbourne just isn’t as convenient as Royal Arcade.
I am looking at Edward Green for my next dress shoes, and rather than the factory leather-atop-rubber sole option, I think that I might get full leather and then have Evans add the Vibram layer. Easier and quicker to have replaced without sending overseas.
