 What are the chances of an oxblood tennis trainer in the future? And thanks for letting me know about the sand fresco. That's what I get for sleeping. 
Got the green/brown guncheck Cantarelli. I thought it had sold out long ago. I am quite pleased. 
Looking at the HUF/USD exchange rate trend line ... just about time to order more shoes.

^^ I like the one on the Solaro. (And since the Caccioppoli glenplaid is hanging in my closet, a big "duh" to me.)
 Thanks! First impression is that they got the waist just right on this one. I might only need to have the sleeves taken up.  I was skeptical about the buttons but shouldn't have been.
