Van Bommel was only a suggestion. Many upper scale shoe shops have sales currently (at least in Berlin Kurfuerstendamm do I see many of them) of around 50%, so for the same money you'd get something better than the van Bommel. And invest the EUR 20-35 for shoe trees (wood, not plastic), ask them to give you those that fit the shoes you buy.
(And don't be surprised if they feel at bit stiff in the beginning, this will change after three days of wearing or less.)

Damn it
Thx for the note on that fit...funny thing is, the shoulders are even narrower than those of some of my other sc´s...must be the angle, i guess.
I partially live in Düsseldorf and Wiesbaden (you might know that city, there´s a big army flight base just round the corner...

It's a VERY crunchy tie, Paolo, and I have so far not been able to coax it into a double 4-in-hand, which I think would have done the trick. Double Fours are a bit taller and narrower than Regular Fours (at least the way I tie them), and I presume that's the kind of change you're recommending?

Hi Gents,

No input for the Friday challenge I'm afraid, working from home today. Here is my week's outfits however. Have a great weekend.

The common item from the last few pages.. KNIT TIE!

Definitely not part of the budget fit day.. Bottega Veneta tie clip alone is a 1000 clams

This thing costs USD 1,000? I don't mind paying that sum for a SC or so, but for a tie clip? C'mon... you're kidding. No, of course, you're not. You know, in my business we use to say "there aren't 1,000 dollar prostitutes, there are only 1,000 dollar suitors." My translation might not be proper but I guess you get the picture...

I know I'm supposed to look cheap, but do I look cheap enough?

Suit - Hickey-Freeman, bought at Syms, originally $1495.00, marked down to $499, then reduced for the semi-annual bash sale to $399, then bought using a coupon worth $100 off any purchase totalling $400 or more - with tax and alterations - $340

Shirt - Lewin - bought as part of a lot of four for 100 GBP (minus VAT, plus shipping) - about $40.

Tie - bought by a friend as a present while on a visit to Australia - cost - $25 AUD - equal (at the time) to $12.50

Pocket Square - Robert Talbott, bought on sale at Century 21 - $8.00

Belt - Polo Ralph Lauren, via Syms - $20.00

Cufflinks - from the Met Museum - on sale - 21.60 (including members' discount of 10%)

Socks - brand name Punto, via Syms - $12.00

Total, for contest purposes - $454.10

Not included in the total:

Alden calfskin split-toe loafers - bought on sale from the Alden Shop in NYC - $115

Camel's hair overcoat - Joseph Abboud, via Syms - $75 (on end-of-season clearance)

Cashmere/wool cap - Brooks Bros. - bought on sale, but cost unremembered ($50, maybe?)

Woven wool uni-style striped scarf - Brooks Bros. - ($40-$50 - I can't remember which)

Blue silk jacquard scarf, lined with navy blue cashmere - New & Lingwood - Not a Bargain, but very handsome.

One thing I'd like to add is the camera position that makes you look down. Compared to the pic in your avatar this angle gives your face an unflattering view.

Nice combination of tie and coat made even more interesting against this wild pattern on the floor. Nii = pizzazz

Today's tie was picked for two reasons - first, for its cost (minimal), and second, because I am going to a office party this evening at which there will be dancing, and I wanted to wear a tie that I didn't care if I sweated into.

As for camera angle, in my current (and very makeshift) setup, the camera needs to be at mid-chest height in order to get a proper full-length shot of me. My face is also falling .

Glad that you like the cufflinks, and yes, the Met is a great source for interesting links (more interesting when they go on sale, too!).
