    Gordon's price is almost 50% higher than chan's....I reckon their price is a bit steep, but I never had experience with them personally...

    Gerry, I have several that I picked up in the US from RRL, JCrew and Club Monaco. I know Drakes have some nice ones, though they're out of my price range.

    Coffee soon?

    i am not sure about that. I have used both tailors before and both are similarly price. It just depends on the fabric you choose.

    Thanks, Tarang. Drakes is somewhat(!) out of my price range as well :) How do you find the fit of the ones you have?

    Coffee sounds good - PM me with details. I have some cordovan to show you ;)

    Cordovan. Oh boy! I'm wearing some Color 8 boots today.

    Fit is great on all of mine. J Crew and Club Monaco, when on sale, offer excellent value for money. I think Howard Yount knitwear also gets a good rap on the forums, but I don't own any myself.

    Will PM you re: catching up.

    I got some Florsheim Imperial longwing bluchers in burgundy and have a pair of RL Marlow penny loafers on the way. My shoe needs are truly filled! :)

    Thanks for the info on the cardigans. I'll look out for sales.

    Saw this - http://jpressonline.com/sale_sweaters_detail.php?id=CHO1650T_NAV - after following a Put This On link about Shaggy Dog sweaters. I have bought from J Press before, the customer service was good and the shipping OK esp. if you buy a few of those things that are cheap in the US (I got ribbon belts and ribbon watch straps).
