I am a Partner in a consulting firm and I frequently wear crocodile shoes. However they are deep burgundy, custom made from belly leather in plain toe blucher style. When I wear them, I pair them with a very plain outfit with nothing else that stands out in the outfit. I must confess the last 10 shoes I have seen posted on this forum, including your dimitri gomez would not be acceptable on the feet a any human being unless you are starring in remake of crocodile Dundee, let alone in a conservative consulting environment.

Oh, and here's one pair done by Dimitri Gomez, a parisian shoemaker

I don't care and keep on wearing my watches. But I don't want to tease them more... for now lol8%5B1%5D.gif

What about your night life and weekends??

To be fair, at bankers' meeting, it's alright and you do see "ok attires" but by no means you'll see bespoke or high-quality RTW like Brioni or Kiton or else. The rest is just horrible. Even MTM aren't well made from what I've seen so far. GDP has unfortunately no impact on good tastes

How come you never hear anything about Luxembourg in the media? For the reasons you just outlined?

I don't think it's for the reasons I mentioned. It has more to do with the fact that l, despite the GDP per capita, the country is small, doesn't have any major impact on EU decisions and that it's a quiet country. And that's fine by me. The country is already an impressive melting pot of 100 nationalities but we seem to live altogether peacefully, probably because most people come there to work.

Tropicalist, I would be keen on seeing your deep burgundy crocodile shoes if you don't mind posting them.
