Are you having a try on in advance? I would insist for one so that you can change sizes if needs be
I get the stud closure, I have it on one of my briefcases,however it looks like it has only one hole make it impossible to make it tighter if needed be. During cold days I tend to have my shoes facing closing more then usual as an example
From their Instagram feed, today: [[SPOILER]] What is the deal with the closure design?
I think anything above 1200 GBP for RTW is a waste of money. Close to £3000 you can get a perfectly fitting bespoke suit. Cad & the Dandy can be an initial option, with travelling Italian tailors a notch above in prices and off the Row and some on the Row as you go up in budget.

I believe I have seen what @ntempleman did with antiquing it (half brogue oxfords, right?) and it came out great but curious on the longevity of such a finish. What did you use to strip the finish ?
Thanks very much.It was meant to read "synthetic ", dammed t9...Will surely check out your shoes examples .
Agreed with all Raggedy said above. In terms of ideal look/fit, this should be your inspiration:
@bengal-stripe @ntempleman @DWFII thanks very much for your input. Nicholas, I would agree that the Vocalou looks great, but was not sure about the dying properties. Would you say that if I take the lightest of the Browns I can then obtain various darker shades, including a brown/green shade? The problem is that unless I get to use the whole skin, self supplying the leather becomes an economic challange. Also, the old stock baby calf patent you are referring to at the...
