    Hi guys
    I'll be making my annual trip to London and I need some advice, I am 6ft2/190cm and about 120kg big guy. Shoe size US12 or so.. I have a hard time buying stuff off the rack so I have them made. I don't know my jacket size coz the only 2 jackets I have right now, I had made, same goes for my shirts and what not. But I would assume I am bigger than then usual 48R I keep seeing on various websites like crombie and what not.

    1. Are there stores similar to http://www.crombie.co.uk/mens/blazers-jackets/grey-checked-cashmere-jacket.html that sell similar jackets ready to wear in bigger sizes? £600 for an off the rack is bordering on a bit much, I can get a Inzinio(is that how it is spelt) or Scabal jacket made for about £800 to £1000 by some of the best tailors where I live. BUT I do not have the time and I need at least one more jacket for my trip. I would rather not buy a fused jacket, and I have no idea about London prices but I would be most comfy paying around £300, if that is even possible. I can go to £600 for a really good one if I had no better/cheaper option.

    2. Same would go for shirts, here is something I like but I have no idea if it would fit I would have to go try but if you guys know of places known to cater to bigger guys do let me know. http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/men's-shi...t?q=gbpdefault||CZ097NAV||||XXL,|381,||||||||

    3. Shoes, I will be making a pair here in Singapore (where I am based for the moment -Canadian guy) at EdetAl, but for now I need a good pair, leather soles, closed channel/channeled whatever you guys call it, wholeskin. Something like this http://www.crockettandjones.com/Product/Wembley-Darkbrown#.UQH2qkq8EeN I know its not whole skin but all their shoes r calf leather and I prefer normal leather which can be painted or patinated etc...I like berluti but I've read alot about the thin leather, thin soles.. I am not a very gentle person and I dont live in a very dry place, although I do not walk around alot but I rather have something more durable. I am looking from £250 onwards def no more than £500.

    4. Overcoats in my size. I am not too fancy http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/men's-out...vert-coat?q=gbpdefault||OC007DGY||||||||||||| but in my size...

    THANKS GUYS !!!
