Anonymous asked: Alden suede chukkas or allen edmond amok chukkas? In chocolate of course
Alden. I think the stitching they use around the uppers is a bit more elegant and subtle.
Anonymous asked: Whaddya think of Billy Reid?
A bit hit or miss for me so far. Some really outstanding pieces (a certain peacoat for example…) intermingled with some proportionally challenged head scratchers. I remember walking through the BR section at a local NYC retailer fairly recently and approaching various promising pieces due to their fabric or silhouette, only to be disappointed with details like the size and depth of the lapels or the button stance/placement. However, I think the brand is on a decent trajectory, and has a promising future.
Anonymous asked: What do you think about the clothes from Freemans Sporting Club? I think the gorge on the suit jacket is a little too high (relative to the shirt collar) and certain items seem reasonably priced. Thanks.
Most of the clothing seems well constructed and I’ve seen some very nice fabrics in their shop. However, I don’t have any first-hand experience with the new suiting. From looking at it online though, I actually don’t mind the gorge, although it does appear to be fairly high (and maybe too high for some). For me though, I am getting more hung up on the button stance, as it looks to be a bit too high for me. It may just be the model though. This picture represents what I’m referring to:
rippingcorduroy asked: Just curious as to whether the eidos overcoat we were chatting about a week or two ago is available at the soho bloomingdales or only in midtown. Do you know? Thanks.
Only midtown, I believe.
