    When it clicked who he was, I was a 30-chinamen hurdle away.
    Might stop by later.

    Earlier I also ran into Peter lee's shop while looking for a phone store

    Yes, I saw those and would love to have some for summer since I wear a lot of blues and creams. I need to see how the Austerity Brogues fits to pinpoint my size in the Simpson last. Also good that I'm a half size larger than Spoo so chances of availability is good.

    I've been communicating about getting a Grenfell DB Kensington since the Black Fleece trench coat I bought doesn't fit me. Has anyone bought one from the Armoury? I am trying to get a sense of fit - I usually wear a US size 40 suit, want to be able to wear it over a jacket but still stay pretty trim.

    Classically I used to size down in old London Fogs to 38, but I suspect the Grenfell would punish me for it.

    Ah, too bad, thanks for responding though. I will look for them in the fall. Unfortunately even the largest size you list on the site may be too small for me, so certainly these very small sizes would be too small.

    Congrats...beautiful shoes!! They will look even in better in a couple years after they've developed a little patina.

    Fresh off the plane from The Armoury. I ordered them on Friday morning and they arrived today!!!

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have borderline wide feet and had to use a shoe horn to get my feet in but these are already starting to feel as comfortable as my bedroom slippers!

    This was really superb service from Ethan and Alan. A very nice touch was handwritten note from Ethan telling me not to worry if the shoe felt too snug on the first wearing since the suede would stretch. So far I've had two out of two great experiences with The Armoury.

    I think the Armoury has one of the fastest shipping reputations ever! Enjoy! Those are some beautiful shoes.

    Surely you mean a shoe horn, unless there's a method to wearing shoes with shoe trees. Otherwise, lovely pickups!

    Yep, a shoe horn. I corrected it.

    I got in a muddle because the shoe trees I ordered from Endless.com on Friday evening(!!!) also arrived yesterday.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Just wanted to drop in and compliment you guys on your Drakes shop in London (near/in Savile Row)

    I was fortunate enough to drop in when your store architect was stopping by. The gentleman in the store was very helpful, and was very knowledgeable about your products. My favorite part was the SCs, but the wool ties were a close second.

    Edit: Sorry for the terrible pictures, forgot my camera in the hotel, and didn't feel like walking back.
