Although there are certainly better and more expensive shoes ... a $400 pair of Allen Edmond's or Alden's will do the job ... even in the boardroom. I'll never forget sitting in the Brooks Brothers on Madison Avenue being fitted for a pair of Alden's.

Thank you, Mr. Claymore, but I have nothing to contribute to this thread. I was never a customer of Gennaro Paone ... and I'm not a Rubinacci client. Moreover, I just don't keep up with tailoring anymore. I'll leave the discussion to those who know.
Lately I've taken to wearing a very plain vintage IWC in steel. I love the simplicity. It's not an attention grabber ... and that is quite a plus. I haven't been here since this date last year -- it's an annual visit these days -- so not sure if adding a photo will work or not.
