Peluso are carried by Bergdorf Goodman at the To Boot shoe kiosk.

Fit is true to size, with a bit more room in the heel counter in the pair I own. I would rate them near the same...
Where exactly in the Bay Area are you referring? By the shade of your skin tone and body hair, I'm guessing its not Hunt's Point, Richmond, or Oakland. Within San Francisco proper, there are no really bad areas. The Mission is a mind-boggling corridor for the sex and drug trade, but if you aren't involved in either industry I've never had a problem. Just mind your business and the locals are decent people, for the most part.
It's noticeable, but given the pattern and flat front, the cut of the trousers matches the relatively casual fabric. I wouldn't wear these in a business formal setting. They are, however, a perfect alternative to a khakis and cords office when you want something a bit different.
This isn't an edmorel sale.
Anyways, the Varvatos are pretty regular cut. That isn't too specific, but the waist is true to size, and the thighs aren't pencil thin like Borrelli or as full as American trousers. I personally love the fit.
