Tom, Congratulations for your first Mainland shop. I suspect it will not be your last. I know I love being able to see Alden, G&G, JL and EG all in the same place and it different sizes and lasts so I am not guessing what to buy from a distance. Some of your new G&Gs are absolutely beautiful. Do you have a date yet? Perry
Barney's deepest cuts seem to be in their Caruso made Barney's line and the odd Kiton they have left. Although Isaia and Battistoni do get reasonable markdowns. Perry
Go ahead and wear anything you want as long as it is a navy suit, professionally laundered white shirt, non wild, non red tie and recently polished black cap toes. Cutting your hair and beard however should be mandatory. Perry
I was able to score a pr of cordovan as they were seriously considering the US market a couple of years ago. Nice shoes. The size and information is written on the inside in script with a pen and on dark leather so I can't clearly make out the size. It appears as does my recall to be size 7.5. I wear an 8.5 E in UK sizing and a 9D in US sizing for those trying to order from them. Perry
Seems like an awful lot (7 pages) of discussion on a 50 year dressy casual staple. Heck if you don't like it don't wear it, but I am assuming you can't play golf or tennis either. PK

The Union Square location of NM has a great men's store downstairs. Wilkes Bashford is only a couple of blocks away. Saks is a block away. The Hound is 4 blocks away. You will love it. Where are you staying? Perry
If you didn't need a suit or blazer in HS you won't in college. Wait until you get there and see what others are wearing. College is like most other things that young people do. There will be a "uniform". It could be nike shorts and flip flops or it could be chinos and ocbds. But you will probably gravitate to that "uniform." So wait until you see what it is.
I suppose I don't see this as a great defect. I did take the time to look at all my shoes and did see this effect on one pair of EGs in dark oak and another pair of EGs in heavily antiqued burgundy. There were another 10-15 pair of EG that did not show this effect and some are also in dark oak and burgundy although the latter has no antiquing. None of my Lobbs show it either nor does my single pair of G&G or my two pair of Vass or the odd Carmina or Santoni. But...
I suppose that I would not wear either nor would I consider either a "good" suit. Yes there are some manufacturers at the $1500 price point that make a nice garment but they generally are not seen in GQ. Perry
