Just an FYI for striped sock fans (and this may be old news), but there are some pretty good deals on Pantherellas at STP these days. I just picked up some of these http://www.sierratradingpost.com/pantherella-crew-dress-socks-cotton-nylon-for-men~p~6602v/?filterString=s~pantherella%2F&colorFamily=03 for less than $10 with one of the ever-present coupon codes floating around. (like this one: ALEGGNOG3). PS: I don't have any connection to STP. Just like the socks.
People who say they are completely unnecessary these days must have smaller calves then me or something, because my socks-even good quality Pantherellas and Marcolianis- would fall down all the time. I hated the feeling. I wear sock suspenders/garters/whatever-you-want-to-call-them almost every day.

Doesn't Chan come through DC sometimes?

It might. Maybe my lack of attention in this area is why they don't fit me.
I just got these Rockinhghams (size 9.5 UK) in the mail from Herring. The color is dark leaf tan and they're made by Cheaney in England. They are beautiful shoes, but, unfortunately, they're too big for me. I tried on one shoe on a carpeted floor, but otherwise, they're brand new, still in the box along with the shoe polish, bags and shoe horn. Here's the description from Herring: "The Herring Rockingham is part of our new wholecut collection and another example of fine...
