I just happen to have a sport coat from them that I received today. I ordered it on-line. It is supposed to be a 44R (EU54). I am a 44R in just about every brand. but this coat fits like about a 40R, if that. It's a nice jacket but if you're going to make a 44R, even in a slim cut, make it a 44R. I have suit coming from them (from the $469 price point) and I am not optimistic. I called the store in NYC, it's on Broome St. and you can readily Google it. The sales guy...
Realizing that I may be asking for trouble: Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil, even though it's only 70 degrees out.
Put me on the list as wanting a pair of double monks in brown, 9D US. English or Italian, traditional to updated styling with burnishing would be ideal. I have very good feedback as a buyer, so, if any of you guys I have purchased from got something, you know I'm no tire kicker. Thanks all! Lee
A pair of men's Esquivel loafers, 9D. As with all Esquivel's, these are hand made in California and retail for about $650. These have been worn 6-8 times and I just have too many shoes. They are black leather with suede trim at the heel. They have an enlongated toe box (overall length is 11.5") and are in excellent condition. Typical two small markings on sole to prevent returns -- do not affect appearance. These are beautifully made and beautiful looking shoes....
For sale is a pair of Esquivel shoes: the "Kris" model lace up in medium blue. You know the story with the brand -- hand made in California, very big deal. Purchased new at Barney's for $650. Worn about 6 times. I chucked the box, but they come with bags. They are a 9D and fit TTS. Just not getting enough wear and I have too many shoes ("join the crowd," right?). Thanks for looking! (You'll note I have excellent feedback as a buyer.) PAY PAL AND SHIPPING TO...
Dark and lighter are both okay IMO. It's the fit that counts, as evidenced by soon-to-be-ex-Presidential contender Santorum. The pot belly has to go too. But at least he's not wearing sneakers or a baseball cap. Carhartts are the best bet at Home Depot, if you're actually doing a project and not picking up light bulbs.
Bought these last year from polar-lemon and wore them once. They are great but I am not a penny loafer guy. Here is the description he provided in his post. It remains accurate. Box (slightly beat up) is included, no trees. "Alden for BB unlined black shell LHS in size 9D. On the Van last, which some say runs about 1/4 size large. These have very light wear, as evidence by the minimal creasing (even without shoe trees in) and the excellent shape of the soles. Toe and...
I had a guy tell me his aunt retired as a schoolteacher at 55 or so, having taught for 33 years. She lived to be 104. So she got paid for working for 33 years and paid for not working for almost 50. I am a 58 year old-lawyer and my retirement plan is simple: death.
Got a couple of new Isaia ties here for a fraction of the original price and they are beautiful!
I personally avoided them for years since they were so indentified with "Wall Street"--especially the larger collar models. I have since bought a couple of white collar/cuffs light blue shrit from Brooks Bros. and because the collar points are short they are not as ostentatious. And I am a lawyer, but still would associate this look with Wall Street types.
