No opinion at all?
The sports coat you are seeing on the photo is from Etro, 100% cotton, color indicated as "natural". No word on the lining, but to my eye it looks like without any lining due to abundant creasing. Do you agree? Do you think I should go with 1/4, 1/2 or fully lined jackets for summer? What is your opinion on the fabric and its density, i.e. %100 cotton? (summers here is really hot but no humid) How do you like the color? Is it too dull? Can I match it with jeans? Chinos?...
I did not understand. Are those captoe boots from J. Gilbert? AFAIK they have/will have the non-blind eyelet version.

Is there a problem with the stitching on the heal of the left shoe?

And if they do not fit properly, they cost around 25 dollars to ship back. Besides I do not know whether...

I don't really want to get too into this because I don't want to confuse people even more than they already are about Alden lasts! But, for examples sake... I have a wingtip blucher...shell cordovan, regular welt that fits tighter than another version in suede with a reverse welt. I wear both in the same size without any complaints. I also have a...

I would say 90% of people don't adjust size because of it. Tom, could you please explain how and why do you think that the exterior patterns such as handsewn stitching as in NST or (perhaps?) machine stitching or (perhaps even?) perforations as in wingtip/longwing style may affect sizing?...

Do you definitely recommend picking a half size bigger size?
