I've just finished reading this thread from start to finish (well, for now) and I have to say it's fascinating. I'm glad that I haven't caught the Mafoofan bug, though. I can't imagine living without my orange leather boat shoes and navy blue leather oxford shoes, alongside other shoes that are acceptable at the office. Foo: what is your shoe size? if you ever get bored of your shoes down the road, you can donate them to us....
Is there any real difference between bird's eye, nail head and pick-and-pick (sharkskin)? I'm having problems telling them apart from pictures on the net.

Going a little bit off-tangent, their "higher-end" shirts are not bad though. I've had a couple for almost two years now and they still wear very well and look crisp and nice. The slim fit cuts happen to fit me very well.
It seems to work for him though. Would it be the case that a higher button stance would work for certain physiques?

While we are on the subject, and I apologize for the threadjacking, where do Washingtonians go to have their bespoke suits cleaned?
