I need new shoes; I want the most versatile shade of brown/burgandy. I'm leaning towards a chiseled toe, maybe a balmoral or or something w/ floating medallion (is the medallion a "safe" bet as far as lasting style?). Here are a few options, please comment on versatile color option as well as style: 1. 2. 3. 4. These are all Martegani's. I guess I'll need black as well. If you have suggestions under $400, let me know.
Selected one of the latest Trofeo's by Zegna for the suit and blazer in taupe/brown w/blue windowpane from H&S. Patrick was attentive and seems to have an excellent eye for detail. I had over an hour of personal time with the only interruption being my mobile phone. He made some excellent 'comments" on the custom suit I wore in, and I concurred w/his comments. Looking forward to seeing the final product. I think the suit was about $1700 and the blazer about $900....
What is his price range for a 2 piece suit and for a blazer?
I'm taking a "managed" risk...meeting Chan in the morning for a new suit and a blazer. I'll take my favorite fitting bespoke suit. I'm having him bring the unfinished products back on his next visit for a basted fitting. I'm not in a hurry. I'd prefer a properly fitted suit and I don't see how it can be done w/no second or third fitting. Anyone seen the new Zegna catalog? There is a great lighter gray windowpane; I think maybe molehair. Might go w/that. We'll see. ...

I came across this picture of an outstanding looking velvet blazer on Alan Flussers website. I think I need one. Short of having one made (probably will not get worn more than 10x / yr.), anyone know of a decent OTR buy?
Quote: The third shoe down, with the floating medallion, is made by Martegani, although the other seem to be Borgioli. I just took delivery of a pair with the medallion, in shell cordovan, from Francos. They are very nice shoes and the fit is excellent. I'm very pleased with them. Can you comment on the sizing (length & width)? Compare to something size-wise that is common (Ferragamo, etc.).
I am looking at some new shoes and am fond of the sleeker look with a slight square toe. Question; look at the pics below and let me know your thoughts on how long until the shoes fall out of style (opinions on favorites too).
Pat Gibbons. Nice guy, nice town car. 415-517-1613 BART is ghetto. Taxi drivers are better, but most have hygene issues. Supper shuttle; Are you serious? Last time I took SS I was on my first job outta college (hence I was poor, or mis-appropriating my income) and that was '89. This is style forum isn't it?
