I can confirm.

It's the worst. I'm basically stuck with AE or Alden in RTW shoes as they are about the only ones that make EEEs across a large range of their shoes. So, to all of you with sleek, sexy G&Gs or EGs, burn in Hell.

Thanks, and aren't they all frivolous?

Is that an expression of joy? Or dismay?

Thank you. Given my druthers, I would skip the pick-stitching, but it doesn't bother me enough to pass up on the jacket.

I've been on vacation for a bit.  I took a bunch of pics.  I'll post one a day because I'll be low on material for a while.  No work and all.

The shoes, my man, are hurting my feelings.

Top half is very nice imho, the lower half leds down a bit. Stronger contrast between coat and pants would have been more pleasing to the eye; what are the shoes? Seem a little informal to me.

I gave a fit-critique, isn't that the whole purpose of this board?

 

Anyway, back to CBD:

In RTW, yes, you're right, most suits and SC have a fabric tag. For MTM or bespoke, it becomes a stylistic choice:

 

 

All of my MTM coats and trousers come with the fabric label by default. Never gave it much thought, really. I wouldn't call it a "stylistic" choice, in any case.

The shoes are Generic Surplus wingtip sneakers.  They're waterproof.  I thought it was going to rain that day, I was going on vacation and wanted to pack as sensibly as possible.  I actually had a rain jacket on earlier in the day, but changed when I saw that it wasn't going to rain.  I'm not crazy about wearing them with a tie, but I don't want to ruin my good shoes.  

 

I've always been curious about footwear when it rains.  Waterproof shoes?  Waterproof spray on leather/suede? Or galoshes?  What do you guys do?

Rain doesn't ruin shoes. It's that simple. I wear my leather shoes in all kinds of weather, never had a problem (and Berlin winters are harsh). Of course I don't hike in them for hours in the rain, but walking through the city for some hours, long subway rides... no problem.

I've never had a problem with my shoes either. Sweden is moody when it comes to weather but it hasn't been a bother.

+1 on the tie MF, I like it.

Cheers guys, the E.G. Cappelli is one of my favorite CBD ties!

 

And yes, after I was done typing I noticed it sounded dirty to inconspicuously take a selfie in the tube, but I know how much you appreciate that.
