Jeez, Ron, very nice. I'm tempted. Blake/Rapid construction, I assume.

I just picked up a really nice navy/burgundy paisley tie by Piattelli. It's the first I've owned, and I'm impressed with its quality. The silk is really vibrant, the construction is very good, and it has a fair heft to it. Anyone else bought any Piattelli ties?

I figure I'd take a 10 E in UK sizes. If...
Why not take it that extra mile and add: "Jeez, you said you liked it when I got it. Don't you remember? Sheesh."

Well, I'm not sure there's an inconsistency now that I read gdl203's post again. I do have a narrow foot, and so gdl203's...

Yeah, gdl, and I've noticed a variety of different experiences forumers have had with the fit of Vass shoes, particularly those on the U-last. I'm a pretty true 9.5B US. My EGs are 9/9.5 Cs. I now have three pairs of Vass U-last shoes--the one pair of balmorals, the Oxford Medallions mentioned, and two pairs of bluchers, the 3-eyelet...

I never have any problems fitting into an american D. I was looking at the Old English or the Oxford Medallion, so I had the same thoughts as you mention how tightness with a balmoral. On my 337's (Weymouths), I have about a good 1/2 inch space at the top of the vamp (or whatever the top part is called...
Those are just beautiful. Is that the antique burgundy finish? (My monitor doesn't do color very well.)
The rule-of-thumb is that you should have the belt relatively snug (but not too snug) with the buckle prong in the middle hole. Most belts have 5 holes, so you want the fit just right with the prong in the third hole. This looks best and also gives you some leeway for weight gain and loss. I've found that a 5-lb. weight change results in about a 1-inch change in my belts--i.e., having to go to the next hole in the belt (since the holes are 1-in. apart). Any belt...
