Probably the most standard answer is going to a Black Park Avenue and a Walnut Strand. These are also two of AE's most popular shoes.I'm in suits about every day and I wear both of these equally. As a minister I do wear black a little more than most people though so you can take that into consideration.
The fit on the Southwick jackets are perfect for me. Will there be an option to get Rudy fit trousers with this new MTO process? If not, what size will the Walts go up to? Last question, since you are going to offer the Southwick fabrics does that mean that Southwick will make the pants or will they still be made at a different facility? Looking forward to this!
Not sure why you would want to mirror shine these shoes. It could possibly be done but these are pretty casual. As far as the process it's not easy to mirror shine any pair of shoes. I spent over 4 years in the Marine Corps perfecting the mirror shine process and it's still not easy.
When I've ordered directly from Carmina it's been hit or miss on duties. If they were shipped FedEx or UPS I usually got a bill in the mail later. If they were shipped DHL then I did not receive a duty bill.
