That is outstanding. Fantastic.Is that Solito? I love the draped chest.
Patrick did an excellent job there. Fantastic.

I don't consider myself some superior being with superior taste, but if someone who has experience with EG / Vass / C&J decides that they want to try some poorly made shoes for a laugh, then so be it. If the pseudo-small-batch-artisan-made-for-me vibe gets you excited, then go ahead. I'd rather spend the money on a resole for a proper pair of shoes.
