    Nick is running a promotion again at BE now, complimentary shoe trees and free shipping for all MTO and RTW, time to open our wallets again!

    Does anyone know what number on Savile Row the new dedicated shop is going to be at? I know the new store isn't open yet and G&G are still in the basement of number 12 at the moment but I'm going to be walking down Savile Row on Thursday and I was curious to see which unit they will be moving into and whether there is any signage or shop fitting going on yet.

    Here you go. Near the bottom of the first post :)
    btw there is also a picture of G&G being stripped apart, if anyone is interested.

    That is the sole-stitcher, attaching the outer-sole to the welt. A flap has been cut previously into the sole and is now folded up, as not to get caught in the stitching. Once the stitching is finished, the flap is folded back again and glued into place. So the row of stitching cannot be seen on the finished sole.
    Carmina and Meermin are run by different branches of the same (divided) family (Albaladejo), who (for historical reasons) appear not to be too fond of each other. A bit like Puma and Addidas: same family (brothers) but fierce rivals in business. http://features.blogs.fortune.cnn.c...behind-two-of-the-worlds-most-popular-brands/

    Like Bengal already described above, that is the channel for the sole stitch. Probably you've read about the machine cutting up the flap channel, which is pretty expensive, and probably both Carmina and Meermin use it, and many other brands as well. Some cut the channel by hand, but it's not that common when it comes to RTW. Thanks for your kind words about the blog!
