  PoP previously suggested (and I agree) that the shoes are likely made by a Japanese company, Miyagi Kogyo, which makes its shoes in Yamagata Prefecture in Japan: http://www.miyagikogyo.co.jp/english/index.html Here's a Youtube clip on the firm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmnFNFpfr0I#t=161
 Depends very much upon the shade of burgundy. I've got a pair in a "brighter" shade that could almost be described as a "chilli" colour, but I've got another pair that is darker and quite a bit more brown, and yet another pair that has dark red/mahogany/brown tones. When I first got the latter pair, I sparingly used some dark brown polish on them to make them a shade darker and it worked very well. I think that burgundy goes very well with both grey/charcoal suits and...
 It's a Royal Fleet Air Arm tie (although often confused with the Royal Artillery tie, which has a red zig-zag pattern). I'm pretty sure that it's from Shibumi's own range.
 Why not send an e-mail to Carmina to see if you can buy it from the store, if they still have it in stock? I'm pretty sure that I've read of people doing similar things earlier in this thread.
 Yes, it's a great film. "It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have."
 Highly recommended, a really enjoyable combination of early-19th-century England and Europe, the Napoleonic Wars and an alternative history that involves magic. 
 Don't have cable, so I'll have to look out for it on the ABC/iTunes/DVD.  Given the size of the book, I think that it's better dealt with as a mini-series. I think that Eddie Redmayne would have been good as Strange, but he's probably too expensive nowadays. 
 Eh, what? Is there a film of it?  That's one of my favourite books of the past couple of decades, so I'll have to seek it out.
 I did enjoy the film of High Fidelity, but it was very different from the book, with a different feel/vibe, and the book was very definitely better.
