So grey suede is good to go?   I was wondering if you had received the shipment of black rain last cap toes?
JPM in London re-opened analyst recruiting for those who hadn't interned for the firm before for the first time. I thought it was an interesting move.   Not that I or anyone I know heard back after applying.
Would love to see how that ages and wears.
Again not too different to what I go through, if more extreme. I certainly recommend that you seek out semi bespoke.
FTC is supposed to be really nice. I have a bit of an awkward sized foot.

This is of course a reflection on neither maker, but on their chosen market segment. I cannot wait to see Meccariello's new line and I equally admire Bestetti's work. In reality I cannot reasonably afford either makers top work at this time, so the cheaper price point does give me the...
