There’s another snow/ice storm coming, I have some cognac and whiskey (cordovan) to help me weather it.
Sone of the new finished RTW pants. These are three pair that really should be in every wardrobe. Green cotton twill is a terrific color (when done right, like in this fabric). Goes with suede, cordovan and even sneakers. Like all our cotton pants, can be dressed up with a sportcoat and tie or dressed down. Same story for the grey cotton twill. The calvary twill wool are 1 1/2 pounds of awesome. You could wear them to climb Mt. Everest or you could just wear them to the office, your choice.
I’ve always felt that DB’s are won or lost on their lapels (and button placement, to a smaller extent). With a single breasted jacket, there is more variance allowable with gorges and widths and lapel shapes, I feel, but with a DB, my tastes run much more rigid. Thin lapels, high gorges, different notches, things that I may not wear but don’t hate on single breasted jackets are an abomination on DB’s. I must have wide lapels, medium gorge and belly on my DB’s and I require them for my customer’s DB’s, like the one above. I am not a huge fan of funky linings, but this is a good customer and I had some spare Macclesfield silk tie fabric lying around.
A shell cordovan Budapester is such a thing of beauty. The proportions are just perfect, nothing extraneous. At home with jeans, khaki’s, tweeds, flannels. 10 years from now, when these will need a resole and when the dainty shoes which are fashionable now have come and gone, you’ll send them into Buday and they will still be making shoes as they always have, sewing, stretching, cutting by hand. And your Budapesters will still be classic, still be in style, still be that purchase that you never regretted (unlike those antiqued cap toe triple monks……………..)
Happy Holidays everyone and if you don’t get what you want, just come by our site later in the week when we have these puppies uploaded :)
Sportcoat from previous post, ready for forward fitting (and looking great with our rust madder tie).
We have now hired a great trouser maker and are back to the RTW pant game. We are extremely happy with the construction and quality of our new pants, we will be updating stock every 4-6 weeks and in our humble opinion, we are producing the best pant value in the marketplace right now.
