First off, I'm not sure what this type of leather/design is called -- a lighter colored shoe where the area near the toe is much darker than the rest of the shoe. I bought this pair of Gucci lace-ups and I like them, but I'm wondering... Does the leather's color pattern make them look too trendy or too distinct to wear with a suit or in business settings? The pair that I have shows a little more contrast than you'll notice in the pic below. here's the product...

I have zero knowledge about VAT and taxes, but... One key question here seems to be, "does CT systematically charge one type of customer more than another type of customer?" It seems like the answer is perhaps "no". I bought some recent shirts (tailored fit) and they are now listed as 39 usd on the US site and 29.95 pounds on the UK site. It seems to be that -- depending on the particular product and the current promotions -- prices can fluctuate a bit. I'm...

These two lines are constantly mentioned here, yet it's still not determined which is the slimmer fit. I recently purchased my first CT tailored fit to compare with BB extra slim fit. After trying it on and wearing for a day, it seemed identical in fit (although, I haven't measured). The main difference in terms of...
I recently made this same decision at Off Fifth (2 for $700), but subsequently returned them upon noticing that the jackets' linings were 50% polyester -- perhaps not the end of the world, but sort of a deal breaker for me. Otherwise, the fit was good.
