    Well, I liked those questions and learned something about Carroll & Co and Lew Ritter. I don't really read a lot of the rest of the forums, so I appreciated seeing it here.

    Someone offloaded thier ferragmo collection and one lonely zenga. The ferragmos are a little skinny so i'll have to see how they work out.

    Which actually doesnt fit if anyone has anything to trade for it.

    How does Adrian Jules compare to HF, Oxxford, Kiton, Brioni etc. in terms of build qualtiy and styling? I drive by there all the time. Might be worth a visit.

    I'd say above HF, close to or on par with Oxxford. I'm not that good at telling the quality of construction (I only know a small handful of tell-tale signs of handwork), but they feel downright amazing.

    So the thread had a very good brag day. That RL is downright amazing!

    And Nataku, if you have anything in 40S...now that there is another 40S on this scene (Mr. ATL), I actually have to stake out territory early. :D

    What size are you looking for? I have an old school (ie Made in US) Jos A Bank Harris Tweed. They made decent stuff before they became what they are today

    Thanks, man. :slayer:

    BTW I've gone back a couple times, I don't think that jacket is ever going to appear.

    Darkmatter7 - If the Alden's you saw were indeed the All Weather Walkers and happen to be a size 7.5, I'd be very interested in them.
