    @steveyoo1983 do you have any sort of sizing specs (shoulder width, chest, and waist) for Orazio jackets? It's tough to buy those things online without a try on and no one in my area of the country carries anything like that.

    Yes!
    So our Orazio stock sizing is very similar to what Orazio Luciano has listed on their webstore (except for the jacket length & jacket sleeve as our store RTW features jackets 1cm longer and 1cm slimmer than OL's webstore stock measurements...again very similar...)

    I can always ship out trial sport coat (or a suit) based on your typical RTW sizing along with some fabric bunch books as well. Once you receive your trial suit, we can discuss about possible changes.

    I certainly understand this is not the ideal/bespoke experience (and it's certainly priced much lower than a bespoke sportcoat/suit) but for gents who fairs well with normal RTW sizing but wants to customize jacket length/sleeve length or design changes, this MTO option should serve well.

    For example, I used to be US38 (EU48) for RTW sport coats/suits which used fit me well except for the jacket length & sleeve lengths (jacket was too short and sleeves were too long for my body)...and I need some design changes (I wanted slightly wider lapels, softer shoulder and patch pockets instead of flap pockets). Nowadays, I've packed on few extra pounds (apprx 20 lbs) and I am now US40 (EU50) and most of the RTW sport coats/suits are too long for me...

    Beauty of this MTO feature is...once again...we can sen you a RTW Orazio jacket/suit for your trial purposes and we can figure out the length (if you want it slightly longer or shorter) / slimness of the jacket / design changes (lapel width/pocket design/inside lining color) / whether you want shoulder padding (full padding, slim padding, no padding) and etc

    Please feel free to email me for details (or text me / call me)

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Just want to say that this MTO/MTM process that Steve describes works very well

    I personally tend to reach for solids/herringbones more often, so, as that tends to be my MO, I'd say every other week at most. It's a gorgeous fabric and the colors are exquisite.

    Happy weekend gents!

    Edward Green updates us with monthly list of factory stock program shoes as well as few 'limited time only & limited sizes' odd stock pairs (they are of first quality and NOT factory seconds or rejects)

    Please note, this list is different and very limited compared to EG's official webstore.
    EG's webstore is their London store stock and they are not necessarily something we can pull from right away.

    I will try to post few notable, cool make ups here on a monthly basis which we can pull from the factory right away (apprx 2-3 weeks for delivery)

    Without further ado, here are some cool make ups I saw on the recent Jan 19 list.
    Kindly email or DM me with your sizing if you would like to order a pair.

    - Cadogan / 202 E / Redwood Calf / Natural R1 (Thin Rubber Sole)
    - Camden / 82 (both standard E & F width avail) / Black Calf / Leather Sole
    - Dover / 606 (very few E & F width avail) / Rosewood Country Calf (Scothgrain) / Dainite
    - Duke / 137 E / Mink Suede / Leather Sole
    - Galway / 82 (both narrow D & standard E width avail) / Chestnut Utah / Dainite
    - Galway / 202 (F wide width only) / Navy Country Calf / Ridgeway
    - Galway (Veldt) / 72 E / Rosewood Country Calf (Scothgrain) / Ridgeway
    - Kentmere / 72 E / Dark Green Utah / Ridgeway
    - Kentmere / 72 E / Navy Utah / Ridgeway
    - Kentmere / 72 E / Black Utah / Ridgeway
    - Newmarket / 82 E / Dark Oak / Leather Sole
    - Piccadilly / 184 E / Mink Suede / Leather Sole
    - Shanklin / 202 E / Navy Suede / R1 (Thin Rubber Sole)
    - Shanklin / 202 E / Tobacco Suede / R1 (Thin Rubber Sole)
    - Shanklin / 202 E / Loden Suede / R1 (Thin Rubber Sole)
    - Westminster / 888 E / Tobacco Suede / Leather Sole
