If there is anyone who knows about double breasted vests it certainly is Manton.
Changeable buttons? Then it must use cotter pins. However it ends up "unfolding," I like the double breasted vest and the hidden hole to hang the chain. I have only ever put a chain through a button hole. I hope we will soon see a good picture of the vest on and a chain and maybe a good fob in place.

I received a total of two emails since my post detailing the remaining shoes. Is it just the mystery you guys really like? Once I laid down my cards the calls stopped. Is it the great deal of the unknown that gets the Styleforum going? The mislabeled shoe on polo.com that just maybe, could be a fabulously discounted...
Gentleman, First of all it is Charley. But other than that thank you for all the attention over our Edward Greens. I have fielded many phone calls from all of you about the shoes.
