No surprises here - 1962 MGA Mark II!
I have some extra room in the rip of the shoe due to the elongated nature of the last, but I have a wide (EE) foot and only went down 1/2 a size (to a UK/10) from my US fitting (US 10.5) and it is fine -- no looseness.
I spent most of last summer in Bogota and heard about this guy. Although he started out responding to the demand during the height of the narco-terror days and had a thriving business throughout SA, he does hardly anything locally anymore -- it's all international, most of it seemingly in the Middle East. Given that the drug operations and the FARC guys have been pushed out into the jungle these days, his move to foreign markets makes sense. Security (mostly private) is...
Brand new, never worn Men's 850-fill down vest by Nau, size XL in black. Safety pin where tag was intact, but paper hang tag has fallen off... x-listed on the Streetwear thread as well Here is link with all the deets and better pics than I could take: http://www.nau.com/mens/categories/i...t-308M421.html FWIW, I have quite a bit of Nau gear and the sizing is a little all over town. I am a standard "L" (42/22L) in most everything, but wear XLs in all their jackets...

I have the same experience as texas above -- probably 50% of my SCs and suits are Isaia and I think only two of the S models actually have the same shoulder. None have ever had the same length despite being the same size. While most are certainly soft shoulders, the padding varies quite a bit. I also have one Base V (in a tan solaro cloth) that has a roped finish and is definitely more structured than anything else. Not sure if this is typical as I generally stay with...
Merino T-necks are a commodity item -- a solid basic. Strange but true, I saw a pop up ad from JAB the other day peddling them for $33 each...that's probably $10-15 under most sale prices I've seen.
Here's an alternative that may be in your price range: http://www.hidesinshape.com/underarm_portfolios.html
The eyeglass industry is a marvel in marketing and markups -- cost of goods on most frames is usually around, or below, the $10 mark. But the industry is controlled by a few major players who private label everything, so there you go... Or, as a colleague once put it about a pair of Armani frames: "Six bucks for the frame and $394 for Giorgio's name." I only wear readers, but found some good deals on nice frames at:http://optometristattic.com They had a lot of...
