Do you mind sharing what size these are? Your shoes look significantly more sleek than the pictures I saw when contemplating a purchase of Robert last shoes a few weeks ago....maybe I need to reconsider...or maybe your size 16's are skewing things a bit...
I received my cufflinks (design 16) a few days ago. They are fantastic and arrived just a few days after I made the payment. Thanks!!!
Looking for some footwear to go with a new tuxedo. My preference is for patent leather wholecuts...but I could also do somewhat conservative looking velvet slippers. I don't want anything too pointy.
