New Santoni Brown Pebble Grain Derbys 9D $50, ends in 4 hrs Look nice but I'm gonna pass. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...2637&rd=1&rd=1
I think those are sweet. I'd wear 'em with jeans and any lighter colored pants (I'm thinking white/ivory linen). I think they could really go with just about any color, even black, but would probably avoid wearing them with heavier materials. Definitely with jeans though (not that a sartorial novice like me should even be making posts with the word "definitely" in it).
Maybe I can get rid if this in Buying and Selling?

Suit, shirt, and knot are great though. +3 (or 4 or whatever) except I like the shoes ALOT.

I'll definitely follow your advice and call before ordering.

^ Good point Doc. I remember reading that in the original thread but was too lazy to find it. Not meaning to hijack this thread, but I think I might order this week. I'm a solid 9...do you think an 8 would be about right?
Can't think of any downside but after that Talbott belt find-of-the-year (Thanks Again BTW) and now this, I might just want to start calling you the Luckiest Person On Earth.

If the jacket is too long by more than 2 inches (some would even say one), it can't be shortened without messing up the balance of pockets and button stance. If you mis-measure and it's too small at the waist or hips, there's nothing that can be done (beyond a point, most suits & pants have a couple inch allowance to...
