    Question for the group. I recently purchased a CCP CORS Fencing Jacket, size 46. It's lovely. But it could be taken in about an inch in the midsection and forearms. Not terribly noticeable, but it doesn't fit as well as my high-neck ROOMS jacket. Are there any tailors you could recommend to alter the jacket? I'm in San Francisco, but willing to ship it to a remarkable tailor. Unfortunately, CCP doesn't offer alterations. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Go to the Archive and ask Arthur whom they use. I wouldn't ship it anywhere.

    Frankly a jawdrop moment for me to find someone actually did some serious academic work about CCP

    I'm not surprised. He wrote a good book on fashion a long time ago, called Tigerpsrung.

    I would be very thankful if you could help me identifying these.

    I hope the pictures are alright.

    Thanks in advance!


    sure thing you will never see the tag if you mean designer name ,simply because your derbies is vibramed by the seller to protect them

    your derbies is genuine according to your photos

    so take a breath and rest !!

    You could ask at Advanced European Tailoring in Berkeley.

    Small question on CORS and ROOLS Jackets - how long does it about take to break them in?

    I'd say depends on the jacket model as the sleeve slimness varies, loosest to slimmest is scarstitch, high neck, fencing. Generally ROOLS will be easier to break in though as it is thinner.

    My favourite CCP Leather is the Highneck.
    It stands apart from the other models.
    It‘s the most Ccp-ish of all CCP leathers in my humble view.
    This is because of how it considers anatomy down to the bone.
    (The neck, the tight pits, the elbow and glove sections in the p/gp versions etc)

    I have two - a regular ROOLS/33 and a prosthetic CORS/19
    Was going to sell one of them but I like both too much to give one away
    (developed somewhat of a collector knack for leather in general)

    They are actually two different jackets really due to the leather and color difference.

    Meanwhile the Rools got some wear and starts to break in (noticeable effect after about 10 wears, it gets softer and one feels more at home in it)

    The Cors is an impressive piece of art but something makes me reach for a different jacket when I open the closet. It‘s a bit less „approachable“. I had a similar effect with another Poell piece, a coat - which I avoided for some time although it fit well. At some point I forced myself to wear it and got used to it.
    Or maybe it got used to me..

    So wondering how long until that cors starts to get used to me (after I begin to wear it) ..? There is two processes, one being that waxy coating to vanish (which will make for some of the stiffness) and another the general stiffness of the material

    I was trying on a cors fencing jacket this weekend and had the same feeling, sleeves are not as tight as I was expecting. I was wearing size 52 (my size) with a simple t shirt under but still I had the feeling it could be more fitted to the body.

    To all,

    Quick question re: care for my pair of Drip Derbys. The rubber is finally starting to wear down to the wood and I wanted to get some opinions on how I should recommend a cobbler protect them.

    Beyond that - wondering what kind of oil/cream/brush care is standard around here. I've attached some photos of the shoes below. Also have a brand new pair of M_Moriabc derbys that I would like to plan future care for as well.




    Kindest regards,

    D

    If going for longevity, I'd say to get vibram soles put on. Once the heel starts to wear down on the vibram, get shoe taps put in - then switch those out for new ones every time those get ground down. That's the most efficient method for sole longevity.
    If you want to keep the latex look, buy some liquid latex and apply / let dry. My Rombaut latex shoes came with a bottle of the stuff to apply as needed.

    For brush method - personally, I use Saphir clear polish, and I typically apply it with a rounded sponge, then rub it in with a round shine brush in troubled spots, and finished it with a wider brush to get it all evenly spread. Use your own spit to clean up stains from stuff like beer / soda etc. The enzymes in your saliva cleans leather better than most anything tbh.
