...if you could just get a penny for each post, you'd have quite a weekend!
How could you possibly post any more than you already have??
+1 on that. Gorge is super low. From where did you purchase the jacket?

My opinion on black and brown shoes is that if you are having something made (these were MTO), you should spent the $$ on something that you couldn't buy RTW.

If I am going to purchase any additional shoes, I have decided that they must be more interesting.Also had a pair of burgundy GG shoes made that are just stunning.Thanks. Yeah, luckily I get to wear whatever I want...
The polish is going to look lighter on a white background, but it gives a good ideas of the relative color differences. Mahogany is darker, but this shows the difference in color vs. burgundy, cognac, and the other browns. The Burgundy is also much darker than shown, but, again, this is for illustration.
You're probably right. Couldn't find my notes. As Ravi Tailor (my tailor - he's was raised in Indian, so his surname literally came from his family's professional tradition) told me, these were the original business suits in London. The pinstripe suit devolved from this into something, at the time, relatively less formal.A pair of Gaziano Westbury shoes in black. Although I hated to order a pair of black shoes, I figured that I needed at least one really, really nice pair...
Fantastic thread. Can't believe I'm only now discovering this. Another great example of why I love Styleforum.
Burgundy would probably be too light. Might help fill in the background should there be any scuffing. Otherwise, those are super dark shoes! check out the below comparison of the different Saphir colors:
Just received my new "business" suit from Anthony Hewitt in London.
