Free bump for taking a chance on Secretions Magnifique.
HR closed their Scotia Plaza store because they moved to First Canadian Place. Walter Beauchamp leaves much to be desired. They quoted me a price to do a hem on a pair of pants for $75. Granted that they were not store bought, but at $75!?!? The SA's reason is that the store is a bespoke shop and the tailor has to take his time off eslewhere to attend to this task.......bunch of BS. HR prices are high. If you can afford it, all the best. If not, buy it eslewhere...
Nice collection. Just a curious question, why are the Vanguard models more expensive than the others (e.g. Madison etc.) Cloth/Colour/Cut/Style?

The suit was a few seasons old and I didn't really care about it too too much. I am still giving this establishment my business. In your case, it sounds like it is a mom...
Looks like the old Cambridge. AE changes the model names very often. Don't think they are cordovan, the creases gave them away. AE only has a couple model made with cordovan.
Nice shoes. These are at least 15 years young. I got them when I graduated from university and these were my first pair of nice shoes. They are still going strong!
