There are a few there I'd love to get for the price!

+1 for Prada, which makes a lot of well-designed shoes (apart from their frolics into making ugly sneakers). And the Prada shoes I've bought were very well made. I say this with the caveat that it's been 10 years or so since I've last bought their shoes, and there is some noise that standards have slipped. +1 for Ferragamo. I've never really understood what people herehave against them. Probably better to buy on sale, but the regular and Tramezza lines seem fairly...
They are some good ones! After a coat of cream, then a coat of wax. Hope the rain holds off tomorrow!
Finally got my long-awaited Westons! Now to give them a polish.

You never see makers like Kiton, Brioni, or Oxxford using synthetics in their fabrics ( or at least I don't ). Good...
Leadenhall Market is the place to go near Bank. It's "decent" but doesn't hold a candle to a NYC shoeshine....
By the way, C&J in Burlington Gardens is having a sale as well, and there's not a bad selection there. Some under £200 FWIW.
Braved the tube out to Green Park. Not a very inspiring selection in 8.5. Especially when we're talking £420 and up. Edit: actually there was one sweet pair of brown derby's that was marked "EG for..." someone in Barcelona. I would have snapped them if they were cheaper, but really don't have a place to wear them -- too formal for most weekends, and too informal for work. Jealous of whoever grabs them! I walked up the street (arcades) to JM Weston, and thinking for...

Pretty much the best writer I've found at any price point, so long as (1) you don't mind using a pedestrian looking pen; and (2) you aren't bothered that they tend to blow up from time to time, with the ink seeping through the "plug" onto everything. Since I have some...
In the US, I wore 90% brown. In London, 90% black (100% Mon-Fri). As reported before, it's just the way of things here and not likely to change.
