    Outstanding. Like with any shirt maker, you'll have to get a single shirt first, so that they can adjust your pattern. Once they have it though, the fit is pretty spot on.

    AC's shirts aren't cheap by RTW standards, but for custom, they're one of the most affordable out there. If you're in HK, you can get something as low as 150 per shirt. Outside of HK, they're about 200. Quality is excellent and they excel at getting a good fit. I strongly recommend them.

    Wearing the same pair right now (but I got them with blank pockets). GREAT jeans.


    There's a Double RL store here in ATL (and a few scattered throughout the country). Otherwise, most Barney's Co-Op locations sell them.

    Need your attention, please!

    I bought it today, will arrive in August.

    I ordered today a pair of John Lobb Winchester by request and I would like to hear your thoughts.

    First of all, the Winchester is a shoe that I like, I would like to hear your opinion about the color that I ordered it.

    To help you get an idea this is the actual shoe in different colours.

    My order will have the calf leather part in Plum Museum Calf, like this shoe.

    [​IMG]

    and the suede part will be in the same colour as the John Lobb 2011 suede.

    [​IMG]

    Like it? or Not? Do you think I Should have gone for a more conservative option like the one in ebay?

    Thank you very much.


    PS Colours in these photos are a little bit different from the reality.
