    Just do bespoke dude. NMWA would have been nice but BNTailor will be better! Get clags to be your guide.

    38-40. And B&T takes at least a month, which Rudals doesn't have :(

    Do you like them? They are not to my taste, but certainly nothing wrong with them. (I don't care for balmorals; like longwings, that long seam, parallel to the ground looks inelegant to me.)

    I don't care for them. Just wanted to get opinions from the experts.

    Those look great to me. Actually very elegant. Good price too.

    Slightly square toe. I usually like round, but if Noodles likes them I say go for it. I support you. :slayer:

    This. Clags if I don't remember bad has already contacted B&Tailor. Tell him to go with you so you don't make any mistakes. Also... don't go when you are drunk, during your drinking time or with a hangover. it's worth the investment. [​IMG]

    Noodles definitely should not bespeak anything at this point. He doesn't even know what he wants (or if he does, he has so far been unable to articulate it).

    Noodles, I support you noodling that borrelli too. Good thing is that if it doesn't fit you, you can return it.

    Order it, post fit pics before you decide to keep it.

    DO IT!

    AND GET THOSE SARGENTS!!!

    Jacket lenght says 29". I guess that if you are 183cm that would be short on you.
