I have a Benjamin suit. It's excellent for the price - made to similar standards to canali and corneliani. I don't mind made in China, but then, I don't mind globalisation.
Generally 'Tricker's International' shoes are Italian-made and look a bit flimsy. I had assumed that they and the English Tricker's were completely separate. What's the story with English Tricker's International?
Slip-ons with a suit can be good. Done well, it looks louche. That's not always good, but can be. These, for example, I would wear with a dark suit in a flash. Not that it makes much sense to use Tuczek shoes as an exemplar in this type of thread. Any opportunity, though...

Elegant double monks made by Grenson to their old Masterpiece standards, for New & Lingwood's top line of shoes, Poulsen Skone.

It's quite striking, I like it. And I guess you're American so can get away with it.But I dread to think what would happen if somebody In the UK was spotted wearing that.

Very reasonable BIN for Barker Harrison boots. Half-price, and the RRP is good value in the first place, as English shoes go. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Barker-Harrison-Brogues-size-8-F-/360660083391?pt=UK_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item53f90422bf
Not a bargain, but what a wonderful overcoat... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NUTTERS-35-Savile-Row-Bespoke-Black-Gray-Tweed-Heavy-2-Btn-DB-Overcoat-40R-/151046660774?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item232b1522a6
Very nice indeed.
Agreed. I rarely contribute because I am not especially knowledgeable but have learned a huge amount from certain posters here. If this thread was filled entirely with people using sexual metaphors to describe their reactions to double monk straps I would stay away.And if Isshinryu's tastes don't conform to the bland #menswear norm then all the better.
