Sorry I don't actually. I've given up watches completely at this point. (GAWSP!)
Thanks! Despos has done an amazing job and I am beyond pleased with the result. I am very anxious to see what the final version looks like. I have been keeping a log of shots from the different fittings as time has gone on and plan to put together a review thread after the whole thing is done.
Thanks! This is the good part about having patience and working with someone who sees way more than I probably ever will. During the fitting last night, Chris marked out a small change because he noticed that the jacket was sitting on my hips. That small little thing made the jacket look even better, and it's something I never would have noticed to begin with. There are all sorts of little things he pointed out to me which make the whole thing work beautifully. He is truly a master craftsman.
Thanks! I'm loving the process. It is definitely a worthwhile endeavour and the direction I see myself going in the future.
I would check the Poor Man's watch thread. There are all sorts of good ideas in there of things which work well and may fall within your price range.
Final note: While I have been lurking and watching, I have been negligent in the giving of thumbs. My apologies, but I have been beyond busy since the beginning of the year. I do want to note though that I've noticed that what seems to be the core group of posters recently (Spoo, SB, TB, %, UC, U_C, HF) seems to be setting a good (if not to the taste of all) standard that seems to have really evened the thread out a lot recently. Take that as you will.
Apparently it requires a club collar.
I'm just messing with you - you know that - right?
This is not what most SF'ers would even look at but I think that it looks nice and it is super cheap with a 2 year warranty (no I don't work there ).
Cross-post from the Drake's Sale thread. My latest catch: Double warp reppe.
P.S. It would be nice if someone besides sugarbutch were the first to point out on my jacket's collar gap.
If not a club collar, maybe white tie?
'Robert's white tie was made by Savile Row tailors Huntsman, following an original design and taking four fittings,' said Susannah Buxton, costume designer
what is up with that collar gap?!?
Even the dogs appreciate the pairing of brown and white.
Check out Seiko 6 in that price range.
Are those Springer Spaniels and an english lab? What is the other dog?
Has a little Border Terrier going on but seems a touch large.
From the article that has the pictures:
Current Shooting Times editor Alastair Balmain criticised the dogs in the scene.
He said: ‘The yellow Labrador would have been highly unlikely to feature prominently on the shooting field until a few years later. Secondly, the English springer spaniels shown appear a bit small for the time and it is unlikely they would have been used as peg dogs, but would have been used by the beaters to flush game over the guns.
More typical dogs for the guns would have been flat-coated retrievers.’
The show’s makers denied they had made any mistakes. A spokesman said: ‘Our costume designers put in hours and hours of research and there are images from the time of Edwardian men wearing leather gaiters on a game shoot.
