New Deluxe. Doesn't get my boring than that. That book is odd trouser heaven however.
I am thinking of buying my first pair of Belgian Shoes. I love the design and ascetically fits what I need. The issue is, how do they wear? I would probably get the rubber soled ones so I can wear them with both jeans and a suit, but also because I am in Manhattan and have to deal with the physical elements here. They are "house" shoes but have they changed over the years to handle a full day of work and maybe even a light commute by train and bus?
No one has ever heard of this person/group?
A tailor who wil make anything for you, takes the fun out of going custom. The prestige of saying you're a client of _____________, is lost.

Noticed on here from photos that people that have bought very high end shows final sale, that have holes drilled into the button to prevent returns. While I have the advantage of just buying Grensons at cost at work, I am looking at a great loafer on eBay that has to holes drilled into the bottom. They are near the heel and wouldn't touch the ground, but does this effect the shoe's wear and performance?

Anyway, I called the H&S store in NYC and they said that don't "normally" sell to individuals but could do a one time favor if the customer really wanted it. I know, you're wondering what the title implies . . . . . . so after some small talk on available fabrics/designs...
