• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Another pretty fruitless week of searching for Sneaky Santa. Apart from a very small amount of unremarkable fodder, I only really turned up one good item: a LE Levi's Visionaire 31 Bleu jacket, Made in Italy.

My Adopted Grandfather has taken a turn for the worse. and i need a pair of nice Black Shoes right now. I can pay via paypal request email using a Credit card.
And need them posted Asap.

I'm hoping for some longwings. 11 E.
or whatever best fits a Jordan size 12 foot size,(=Duck feet) you guys know better.

They must be Black. and appropriate for a Japanese Funeral.

I have a pair of black Allen Edmonds Macneil wingtips in the store that Im pretty sure are close to an 11 E. Theyre in the store so I can check tomorrow for you. All Id need is shipping if they fit. Ill let you know in the morning if theyre your size.

Spoo, I can't thank you enough. but i can try.

I have been trying on awful shoes all day. this means a lot to me. and even more, my wife.

Well, I gratefully accept. with a caveat. I am willing to pay postage, what you have in them. and enough for some whiskey. because i'd really like to pour you a drink right now.

I love the dear old man. "G-Chan". whom you might remember from the -What's in Grampa's shed? episode, with the beautiful old art. They don't make 'em like they used to.
and, I owe you.



@silverwarebandit Thanks man. i don't know the difference between E, and EEE.
The best fit i found today was 11 EEEE. but that is Japan sizing. and shit is funky.
i'm hoping the 11 E above will do the job. as my old Florshiem Gatsby's were 11E. again, thank you. *only funerals and weddings,right?

Anyone ever ordered online from Marshalls? These might be worth the gamble to see what you get. The pictured shoes look pretty rough, but who knows: https://www.marshalls.com/us/store/jump/product/men/Men's-Made-in-Italy-Leather-Dress-Shoe/4000023190?colorId=NS4154995&pos=1:60&N=2991856309

It's new and yes I have ordered from them with success. Order cancellation rate is roughly 10% looking at my order history which isn't bad.


Choice picks from the last few days, mix of sources. All I can say is it pays to follow through on leads.


Loro Piana cashmere/silk blend. Wide ass TF style lapels

IMG_3169.JPGIMG_3173.JPG

First one is a 70s deadstock dacron blend and super lightweight, perfect summer shirt

IMG_3175.JPG

Traditional weight OCBD in white from the Maker's line. I'll be surprised if this passes the 60 day mark in the shop

IMG_3181.JPG

This one's a beauty. Getting aggressive on the student loans right now or I'd have kept. 1" too short on the sleeves, logo buttons wool/cashmere blend!

IMG_3192.JPGIMG_3193.JPGIMG_3195.JPG


Typically avoid most Rag & Bone unless it's dirt cheap/women's. It just doesn't like to move well. Well under 10% of MSRP. Hoping this pair turns out ok

RLBL vest with tags. Not my style personally.
