[[SPOILER]]  A bit shady?  Like being a bit pregnant.  It is dishonest.   
Those shoes are either barrie last or might even be trublance.  It is not at all the model 2160 shoe.   
I have Mardi Gras events to attend in a few weeks and would LOVE that jacket.  If only I did not require a 44R (probably 46R in Epaulet cut).  How did this jacket come about anyway?  Is it a sample?
Temp supposed to rise about 40 degrees by tomorrow afternoon over the temp now.  It is supposed to be a balmy 35 degrees or so on Thursday.  There will be a lot of ice on the ground from the past few weeks and it is supposed to snow on Thursday albeit a relative dusting compared to the onslought last week.  You will be fine with whatever you wear so long as you plan for moisture.
