Discount will be tough. Have you checked out shops with very wide inventory? E.g. Shoemart and Moulded Shoe? Alden makes an amazing variety of sizes. Ditto Allen Edmonds. The aesthetic is obviously different from Ferragamo, but you might find a few items that work for you.
Ortho is famous for attracting athletes. What about other specialties?
Any news about f/w knitwear?
Very philosophical, HF. Clothing as self-presentation and self-production.
Five sleepers: 1. Pedaled Jacket 2. Porter Duffel 3. More luggage 4. Drake's Scarf 5. Ikat tee
Having seen some Eidos pieces in person as well as online, I'd say that you really have to see the fabrics in person. The Eidos silhouettes are very nice, but the fabrics really make the clothes sing. What looks loud on the screen can look luxurious and elegant in person.
You might look into whether Alden uses veg tanned leather linings.
Anything frozen on the east coast would be a mechaya today.
Darker polish will darken the shoes. Use edge dressing on the edges of the soles.
For American trad clothes, try J Press or O'Connell's in Buffalo. I don't know what either will have below $200, but it is worth a try.
