Awesome news, Rob, and well deserved!
I had the same problem with a pair of AEs. So I wrote to the company and asked them for their advice. Here's what they said:
Mold growth is likely to happen whenever the conditions are right. All it needs is moisture, which could be from wet sidewalks, but usually it is from foot perspiration. Warmth, and Bacteria which is everywhere. There are a couple of things you can do to help avoid this. First of all don't wear your shoes every day. Your shoes should have at least 24 if not 48 hours to dry between wearing. Secondly, don't put the shoe trees in right away after you take the shoes off. Let most of the moisture evaporate from the shoes before placing the trees inside. Also, make sure the trees you have are made of an unfinished wood. The trees are designed to Absorb any moisture that may be left in the leather as well as keeping the shape of the shoe.
It is however important to get all of the mold out of the shoe, and also disinfect them to kill any bacteria that may still be lurking inside. If you wish, you may use a simple solution of .25 cup vinegar, .25 cup baking soda, and one cup water. Mix up the solution and pour equal amounts into both shoes, swish it around and dump it out. Let the shoes air dry, then wipe out with a damp cloth and let dry before wearing.
So that's what I did (twice) - problem solved.
Impressed with Mr Porter and DHL. Ordered Saturday, dispatched a few hours later, delivered 2:30 this afternoon! Can't do better than that.
Why were the prices increased from $155 to $159?
Apparent temp of 1.8 in Sydney this morning. Finally some sort of a winter!
Good pick up .. unfortunately I buy in USD and the FX movement recently is burning
The FX dropping from $1.05 to 0.95 is a 10% increase in cost. Im wearing more of the cost increase than ive passed onto our customers.
Shame on you. Your prices should really fluctuate by the minute according to some sort of live FX algorithm.
I really should get some more popovers, they're great for winter smart casual worn under a heavy sweater. For one, it doesn't look like you're wearing a business shirt on the weekend; for two, unlike a Tshirt the long sleeves and soft collar keep the wooly itch off your skin.
He could do that - or he could just charge in USD!
As the lapel width of a suit increases, does the collar stand height at the back increase somewhat too?
What's the "normal" collar height of a suit at the back?
Been a bit slack on the WAYWRN pics lately. Kamakura BD and Burgundy Grenadine today. Will post a full fit pic later on if time permits.
No - on my suits the collar height doesnt materially change on our wide vs normal lapel width. I say materially because in fact the wide lapel was maybe 1-2mm taller than one i had on a mannequin here
Ive considered this - although PayPal will like to charge more fees - need to work out if I can just get something to do a conversion and then charge AUD at paypal.
This morning I looked at my shipments and 15% were domestic and 85% international. About 50% of orders were countries that are USD or pegged.
Thanks - so what is it usually? 2"?
The real question is - chambray, light blue or white?
What should I get?
