After X amount of time and Y amount of shoes, there's only so much a man can find use for -- and this is why I haven't bought new pairs for a while. I've never tried pumps so it was only a matter of time and pairs before something they were welcome.Edward Green for RLPL: calfskin opera pumps (or court shoes) with regimental stripe grosgrain silk bows, dark purple leather lining, last 100, squared round toe, black grosgrain piping, and cemented tiny leather soles.

Well, if you're sure about this take on the matter, don't tell it to Butler. You'll have to call him ridiculous.Still, I agree that gauntlet cuffs or trouser cuffs best suit the tall. We usually have legs or hands that look disproportionate to our short torsos, so cuffs of both kinds are a great help.
Alright, my point is moot then and you win an argument on teh Internet. Do you feel better than before? I just feel if I'd only known what I do today before I would have bought shoes with a more traditional structure and make. Similarly, I would have spent my euros better and would also have supported makers with more integrity towards teh traditions of shoemaking.
