Thanks guys, I've come to quite like it and I'm happy with the way it turned out.  I got it as a shirt to wear casually, with no tie, as it doesn't even have a top button.  I stole the buttondown idea directly from Jiro - it was basically a copy.   And, c'mon those guys are wearing suspenders, A) with jeans and B) with friggin' belts, not the same at all!
  Eh, I'm not sure why this is such a point of contention for people.  I wear both and can see the relative benefits of each. I don't find clip-ons unappealing like some here do - in fact quite the opposite, I think they are somewhat charming. It's possible that people have started to associate clip-ons with The Armoury since a lot of our vendors wear clip-ons.  It's something that we've picked up on and adopted as well.  Salva wears clip-ons, Liverano wears clip-ons, Koji...
 It's their softest fused collar, the same one that we use on our 1-piece polo collar.  That being said, if I had to do it over again I might pick one step up, something closer to medium.  Hope that helps.
 No I don't think so, it measures 1.75 inches on my pair and the same on another sample pair with belt loops, so I think it would be fine. Jeff
 Hey D, that loop is actually just a single loop to hold the extended waistband, so yeah I can't really wear a belt with these.  They fit well at the waist though, so I can ditch the suspenders if need be.  The waistband is actually only a little bit taller than what I've found in most rtw (these are Ambrosi's house style).
 Yep, Ascot does a pretty awesome one piece.
I finally did it guys.  AREN'T YOU SO PROUD OF ME YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.   In all honesty, it turned out exactly how I wanted it to.  Pretty much a straight copy of good 'ol Jiro.  
 Mr. Raro gives me the serious creep vibes, guhh.
If you're actually an 8 then it could definitely work depending on last. The Aberdeen tends to be wide everywhere with a taper at the toe.
Carmina snuff suede tie loafer (model 80285) in UK 7.5 / US 8.5.  On the Uetam last, a regular width loafer last with a rounded, almond toe, single leather soles, and purple lining.  Heel and toe taps have been added.   Ships for free to the Continental US with box and shoe bags.  Trees NOT included.
