    Just got my Owen & James white shirt!

    The fit is AWESOME! Ahhh man it fits better than any other RTW shirt I have at the moment.

    You guys need more basic colours!

    Big ups to Rob for all the help with the sizing!

    we were having a laugh at work the other day because I was wearing the same suit and tie that I have on in the photo on my ID badge.... I started there in March '05. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not :D

    Florsheim cedar shoe trees arrived today. First time I've ever owned some... or possibly known anyone that's owned some. What's the world coming to?

    I'll be buying a badger hair brush and straight razor soon, and wearing moleskin pants.

    Hey glad to hear it fits well! Currently reviewing an order for spring/summer. Thinking a plain pale blue, a blue/white thin stripe, and then some new stuff we saw in pitti :)

    Sorry Blah. I've tried a bit in RUI and Hiro lasts. Width wise they are the same, but RUI has more height in the toebox, if that makes sense. I think most people are taking the same size, or half a size up from their standard size in UK shoes.

    Stay away from those straight blade and even DE razors mate, unless you've got an hour and a half to have a shave every morning. A good badger brush and soap (I like Crabtree & Evelyn) will do wonders and a modernish razor with as little blades as possible works best for me. I use the good old Gillette sensor excel (2 blades). Not even an ape needs 5 blades to shave their face.

    I'm never quite sure whether I should go a UK7/41EU or a UK7.5/41.5EU.

    All the shoes I got from UK, I had bought 7.5UK and all of them better fitted if I went with 7UK. My Herrings and Cheaneys

    Shoes from elsewhere I got 41 (Bexley) and 7AU (Bartalesi) both seem like I should have gone half size up.

    The only shoe I think I got the right size for is the Borrelli one which I got 7.5UK.

    If in doubt, size up imo. Worse comes to worse you run your first pair with a thin insole.
