I don't know why they don't put these on the website as well. They should be on sale for 49% off right now, but since...

What size suit do you wear?

DEAL for a one of you size 12's - or at least a deal currently. http://cgi.ebay.com/Ralph-Lauren-Polo-Shoes-Crockett-Jones-made 12 declined offers. Who's next? http://cgi.ebay.com/JOHN-LOBB-CUSTOM-MADE-BESPOKE-BLACK-CAP-TOE-OXFORD-SHOE

If this one doesn't sell, I'll probably get the coat cut down by an inch and keep the suit.
RIDER's the guy to ask this question. Cordovan varies in color - it's not uncommon to see two parts of the same shoe age or color differently. Whether those pieces came from the same hide or not I don't know. I seem to think I've got some variance in color on my Marlows and Darltons, but not terribly noticeable. Can you post a pic?
They should be $477 + another 15% = $405 I don't know whether the extra 15% is working online or not, but if not I'd call one of the stores and have them send them out to you. As far as 'worth it', depends on how badly you want them. It's probably the best price you're going to find anytime soon on brown shell cordovan penny loafers in your size. You miiiiight do better if you wait and hawn ebay and the B&S forum - but it might take you two years to find them...

My advice is to read the forum and learn as much as you can about who makes decent quality suits and scrounge like hell for bargains. You'll be amazed at what you can find if you're patient and look LOTS. One of the biggest bummers that I'm sure (hoping for my sake) everyone does is that they start learning and go out and grab the first decent deal they see in an effort to upgrade their wardrobe. It might be six months later that you look at that suit and wonder why you...
