Ah, emptym, those are beauts! Something with that silhouette in black would be perfect -- without the medallion, as you say.Not until after reading msulinski's and Man of Lint's comments did I actually get a chance to try the shoes on with my formal pants, and I was surprised to find that they *did* look a bit bulkier than I had expected or wanted (though my fiancee thought they looked perfectly classic).I had been resisting spending hundreds of dollars on a pair of...
Thanks for the feedback. Actually quite surprised by the "clunky" assessment. I had intially chosen something with a much sleeker profile, but thought these heftier more rounded-toed ones looked somewhat more "traditional" overall, although perhaps not traditional specifically in terms of "classic opera pump" styling.

Cool, thanks for the detailed description and photos; didn't quite follow it all, but very interesting.Noticed this thread after having had a good friend tell me just recently about a tailor he found in lower Manhattan who has been recutting all of his suits from his heftier days, slimming them down and even removing pleats, which I hadn't thought could be done successfully...
Yeah, good point. Curious about POTUS, though - have we seen him/her at all these two seasons?
