Norcaltransplant's rank-ordering above seems consistent with what has been posted over the years on the forum. However, Martegani is missing and should be added, in my opinion, to the "Quality RTW" list. In addition, there are Lattanzi RTW shoes, and these should be added to the "Highest Quality RTW" list. The only quibble I might have with the above rankings might be re StefanoBi, which I'd probably drop down to the "Quality RTW" list. It's important, I think, to...
Good observation, LK. I love that show and have been thinking about buying the complete boxed set of DVDs. It's amazing how the production company has been able to create the art deco design feel of the 30s. David Suchet is, of course, a very fine actor and really looks the way we'd imagine Poirot from the books, and Hugh Fraser nails Capt. Hastings.

No other retailer has that power. I haven't bought EGs through a retailer, but have had very good experiences going directly through EG. For some reason (possibly a good one), EG is seriously dissed on this forum for their delivery times and service. I don't know...

There was a similar thread a number of months ago (Part Un), but it didn't really get much into what I'm asking here. BTW, in the title, I don't mean "with pride," etc. ( , but more mundanely in terms of location and orientation. Here are the ways I've seen watches worn: 1. On the non-dominant (left, if right-handed) wrist between the wrist bone (the prominent bone that protrudes at the end of your arm just before your hand) and the hand, locating it as far out as...

Is this salvageable? if so, would any tailor be able...

That is it. Pictures like this are very deceiving (but we do appreciate them, woolymammoth), and hardly reveal much of the details. Once you had the shoes in your hands you might find many differences in fine detail,...
Very nice belts, Jonathan. I think you have some winners here! Are the colors in your pics true to life?
