Biberach , I don't know what you decided about the shoes but I like them quite a bit. I have several pairs of the Scribe line and from what I can tell from the pictures those look very close maybe a little sleeker as the Scribe line is can be a little clunky in some styles . I am thinking that their shoes made in Switzerland are quite nice regardless of the line. I think those shoes word look great with slacks and a good alternative to a cap toe. I vote for you to purchase...
I have six pairs of Sutors from STP and Shop the Finest and each and everyone has been marked only with the EU size.
Here is my experience ; I have several beautiful hats from Optimo , really nice but expensive. I have also taken a few ebay buys to them and they come back beautiful and I have much less invested in them than the more or less $500.00 of the usual custom hat . Graham's ( Optimo ) Panamas as well as his other straw offerings are some of the worlds finest and cost accordingly . The finest examples of Panamas and Milans I have ever seen have been in his shop.

Non Rowenta suggestions please.
My third Rowenta just died. Loved the iron when it worked but each one has given me a shorter life span than the one before. I think they are not made as well as in the past. I would like to know what people here are using as well.

I would not have bought it if...
Perhaps a style that has a short waist such as a cafe racer . Lot's of cool vintage jackets all the time on ebay. Schott , Vanson , Belstaff all make classics.
Those two hats are to hats what the leisure suit is to suits.
If you can't wear it with a sweater or sweatshirt it does not fit and you'll never wear it. Return it , maybe the sleeves can be adjusted on the XL.
Greg , they run small. I wear a 40s in suits but in a Belstaff jacket I am a large. I have one that is a 44 that fits tightly and a 46 which fits great with a sweatshirt underneath (leather). I have had to give away two very nice ebay buys because I could not wear them comfortably , one a leather sized 42 , another was a cordora like fabric which i forget what it is called which was sized medium. I have several (8) in different fabrics so I kind of know what talking about.
