    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.

    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

    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.
