^^^Thank you both! Cleav, great tumblr by the way! I didn't know that was you. A good source of inspiration when it comes to putting an outfit together
^^^^Hey! I'll try to post some pics soon here or at An Uptown Dandy
Much as it pains me to say this, I am probably too tapped out at the moment to consider these (I'll probably regret asking this, but what is 6400 SEK come to in USD?). I"ve been finding some real gems in the secondary markets lately: EG for RLPL Carter: Foster & Son Bespoke - the Thomas brogue:
