    Button Down Oxford Shirt/ Quality and Thickness WHERE ?

    Another brand I like is this MacbaTros. Very affordable yet pretty solid. Problem is these are very slim. https://item.rakuten.co.jp/spisurre/192000/ https://item.rakuten.co.jp/kawa/hgmt192000-a/ The wide collar one seems to be bigger. https://item.rakuten.co.jp/americaya/13-101/

    Concern about Buco J-24 Sizing

    There are different versions of the J-24. RM tweaks the cut every few years. You should check the measurements on their website and compare them to your aviation leathercraft jacket. They made a vintage cut version last season which is completely different from the normal one. The vintage...

    1) cannot try them on. You need to trust that he/she will get them right in one try which IMO is rare. My experience with bespoke suit is there is a learning curve with each tailor. 2) No formal production schedule. One man shop usually cannot provide exact production date. When they get a...

    Bill Kelso Harleys Cafe Racer

    It wasn't just his temper. There were a few other things e.g. The rather significant price increase and the inadequate explanation for the increase; After he convinced prospective buyer of the very best quality of the Victory HH, he had trouble with the supply of it and had to switch to the...

    Well, I guess I am wrong about Aero. Guess problem lies with my fd's skinny arm and narrow wrist. Aero did slimmed down the sleeves for him after he sent his custom jacket back. Great customer service.

    I think that is the problem we see often. I have seen that with Aero and LW. When they are asked to shorten the sleeves, they just straight up cut it without adjusting the proportion or drop i.e. using the same sleeves pattern and you end up with a wider cuff. So unless your arm is at least...

    Quality aside. I think the fit goes further. A "custom" BK would if done correctly fit your body but the pattern is not tweaked like the Japanese brands. Japanese brands usually have narrow armholes and straight sleeves that is closer to a Lewis Leather pattern. BK on the other hand copied...

    Yes. Might have read about him on FL a while ago or somewhere, only lace up back then no engineer boots. The toe profile of his lace up is straight down like a cliff. Looks weird to me. The engineers' soft toe looks much better but the heel counter looks too big/tall. And the extra narrow...

    It is difficult to tell without any tag. There are very good repros that copy every aspect of an original.

    Red Wing calls it Oro Russo and is not limited to Far East. The Eat Dust Red Wing collab Pecos is also in this color. They also make Moc Toe in this color. This particular model i.e. Oro Russo Engineer is Japan exclusive though.
