@jfrater I hate to tell you, but the spotty squares ones are a mistake IMO Go for big pics- Yu want them to contrast with your ties, not compete with them.
Since you're in a spending mood, check out Rubinacci's PSs
uh huh- I was going to say the same thing... but was referring to flat-ended silk knits, not grenadines, which work formallly. I agree with the second bold. U mean dark grey? I don't think it's funereal

You've got variety, but IMO u could go for nicely finished shoes - EG, G&G or Lobb - or if you're a construction purist go for more Vass. Avoid black- IMO u need one sleek pair of...
