• 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

I think it starts from 1550 ish, USD.
They are coming back in the spring.
Wow. $1550 USD for a pair of shoes? All of you clearly have more disposable income than me. Too rich for my blood.

Visiting Toronto until this Friday but I will be back next week around Black Friday.

I was looking to get some winter boots, sports coat, trousers, dress shirts, and possibly winter parka.

My initial plan was to head to the Spier and Mckay outlet tomorrow and grab the some of these things. Should I wait till next week to pick up these items during Black Friday sales (assuming there are some). What other places/retailers can you all recommend?
You might check out the ongoing Lipson warehouse sale in Etobicoke, west of downtown. The merchandise and prices at these sales tend to change over time, but they usually have a wide range of Lipson shirts and a more modest collection of Samuelsohn jackets.

Sydney's on Queen West carries a lot of made-in-Canada clothing between their own label and United Stock Dry Goods.

What is STC?
Because in Toronto, that's a common abbreviation for Scarborough Town Centre

I had the following:
Hollow trees, vibram, toe taps. No exotic leather, no nail monogram etc

1695
I'm thinking USD but hoping CAD.

Does that include duties, shipping, tax, etc?

USD.
and no, it does not.

TBH, now that I think stock 7.5 fits me decent, i'd most likely go with skoak in the future. Only reason i went to the trunk show was so philip can verify whether i need last adjustment.

it's still nowhere near the cost of a pair of yanamigachi.

You are also 7.5?

I requires additional arch support + lower instep. RTW UK7 fits tight on me but instep performs better, UK7.5 certainly requires tongue pad.

MTO with Skoak is probably better for you if you don't need last adjustment, I do believe they don't charge MTO fee on top of the regular price. I need to figure out if I can use my own last if I am MTOing with Skoak

i think for an oxford i'll ask for higher instep. but i'll cross that bridge later.

skoak has a MTO fee table, on paper it's cheaper than trunk show, but obviously you'd expect prices to be higher for a trunk show especially if they're coming here.
