Haha, he did but it turned out that we wear a different size in this shoe. PG is a gentleman and I would have loved to buy these from him, but it was not to be.

That's pretty much awesome. But what exactly is the process for acheiving such a dramatic colour change? How did you do this? Quote: Originally Posted by DocHolliday If you went bright red, you could have Kool-Aid Man feet. OOOH YEAAAH!!
I think a pretty solid assessment of Prada in general is that the product is well made, but overpriced. If you can find any of their garments on sale, they would be worth purchasing, but at full price it is a pretty big stretch. This goes for shirts, shoes, suits, anything.

I think the key here, as with many things sartorial, is to stick with classic, time-tested styles.

Alright, I had a look at a Canali tag at work. Under "Modello", you'll find a five-digit number. The first two digits identify the cut of the jacket. So you'll want to look for 14--- or 15--- when you're searching for a new Canali suit, and those will be the trimmer-fitting garments you're after. Your best bet will be to try and find both so you can decide which shoulder treatment you like. If you have any questions about this stuff, I'd be happy to find out some...
