Till end of the week.
I like all the measurements on my Samuelsohn jackets except for the length. I wonder if I would I be able to go through the program you just went through and ask for a standard 44L with some additional length, or would adding length to the jacket mean I'd have to do MTM vs. MTO?
Arne's been gone for at least two months now. John was already in place when I went to try on - and inevitably purchase - the one Ring Jacket sportcoat that they had in my size. No clue what happened to him, however. I didn't feel compelled to ask.
And given SirReveller's recon, Corthay and Cleverley are no longer in the cards. I would've liked to handle a pair in person. The Arca is one of my three holy grails of footwear.
How often do you guys replace your dress shirts? I'm looking at the closet and I have some that when I bought them I had to be smoking something
When my closet gets full or they don't fit me properly. I don't really have a set timeline for when I throw them out but I guess as long as it looks nice, I'll keep it. I only use woolite for doing my laundry and so far they've held up quite well.
I've walked past but never been in Leatherfoot in Yorkville and every time, I don't recall seeing customers in there. If they lost a valued sales associate and stock is taking it's sweet time to arrive, it's a safe bet the store ain't doing so well which is a pity.
I think the only time I need to replace my dress shirts is when I have accidentally left some noticeable marks that cannot be washed away (e.g. spaghetti sauce, projectile vomiting from my toddlers, etc.)
Good info! I didn't know this.
Yeah, I was surprised too. But it looks like a good program. Will post a review when they come in.
I guess when I looked in my closet it had a few shirts that were ugly. Sigh, what was I thinking
Mytailor is coming the 12 and 13 if you're looking for new shirts. I'm on my fourth order with them and their fit is excellent.
Card kopped, thanks for the suggestion. Looking forward to seeing closer to 1.30 on my statement.
I was in Get Outside recently and saw a variety of leather shoes with the brand "Palanco". They are made in Spain and are goodyear welted. Quality seemed decent for the pricepoint of $230 CAD. Pictured below are brown wingtip boots and burgundy wingtip oxfords.
Does anyone have any experience with them?
Alternatively, what's my best bet at that kind of pricepoint?
I know they're considered 'mall brand' but honestly I really like Little Burgundy! I think their buyers do a great job finding smaller lines, they make good picks, and at the end of each season they get really really cheap. They have some of the usual basic stuff, but I always go in to find the more obscure brands and check out sale. I hate taxes and know nothing about that brand, but my first impression is they look pretty good and for goodyear welted and made in Spain seem pretty reasonable. I'd say if they were $150-175 I would for sure go grab a pair myself. At $230+13%, personally maybe that's a little high since you can get other basic lines I think for around that $300-350 mark that are better, but on sale I'll go check them out. Curious to hear if anyone knows the brand.
I think Velasca are at that price point. They seem to be having a sale (10% off, code: EXTRASALE) until Oct 19.
Haven't had any personal experience with them, but from the looks of it, they seem good value for blake-rapid, made in Italy, full grain shoes.
