Similar to my EG Dovers. Nice.
I like the Norwegian toe, I'm just wary of the shoe being too bulky for my feet. I shall now seek a derby in this style but a narrow-enough last with a low-enough instep. Off the bat, these seem sleeker than the Dovers.But not a split toe though
Hard to say without seeing that on you.On a related matter, do we or do we not like this
Everything looks compressed to me. Hard to tell unless it's on a person but the pockets are high with the ticket pocket up on the rib cage. SB peak lapel looks better as a one-button suit. Maybe check out Paul Stuart's Phineas Cole stuff?On a related matter, do we or do we not like this
It's an odd jacket.Hard to say without seeing that on you.
Is that part of a suit, or is that just a sport coat? I generally don't like single-breasted peak lapels. They often don't have the same swooping line as a peak lapel on a double-breasted. The lapels can look like the stubby legs on a roasted turkey.
Personally don't like those lapels.It's an odd jacket.
I am not sure how I feel about it at this point, although I can see it working, like here:
Have you tried No Man Walks Alone's Sartoria Carrara line or The Armoury's Model 3 cut? I think both of those work well across a wide range of body types. Sartoria Formosa is/ was also amazing, although I don't know if NMWA carrying new jackets from them. I tried on one of their coats a couple of years ago and was really impressed.Menswear is painful.
