Nobleprofessor, may just be the photos but your pair looks somewhat dry. The best gunk for exotic leather is Bick4: cheap, effective, non-marking, non-greasy, with some nice penetration.
Wurger, you must have 50 pairs already. Better to get a separate insurance for the collection in case of fire, snakes, planes, or random acts of violence.
sask boot, how's that Italian Comipel cordovan that Tricker's uses? I sold my pair after a few wears as it was such a pain in the bung to shine, and raindrops raped the surface quickly.
chogall, that's the trouble with too many Italian makers: they think that adding a dozen "twists" into one model will make it look cool. In truth they make these pairs suitable for Russian pimps and gaudy entertainment dudes with loose cash only. The English way is to have faith in the shape of the last, the quality of the leather, and some great polish.
Well, well -- if it isn't a Cifonelli on Hamish Bowles! Those lapels are veritably haughty!
MoosicPa, you must have at least half a million dollars in clothes and accessories. Just in case you haven't done so already, a separate insurance would prove golden in case of fire, asteroid, or some such.
guyfromhungary, are you sure you're not affiliated with Buday in any way?
Agreed! For peaks, the so-called faux tweeds are a much better option. They are smooth, clean worsteds with a pattern or weave that resembles the ones usually seen on tweeds (that rough woollen stuff) but look and feel more formal, which goes better with peak lapels.
...on another note, are there more pents-families somewhere out there, making trousers only in the Xth generation? I wager their specialisation is part of the allure of the Ambrosi version.
Olden golden stuff: Meccariello for Kiton butterfly medallion wholecut. ...and here's more: http://www.styleforum.net/t/14906/shoe-damage-report-porn-central-part-i/200_100#post_207723
