I have been lurking on here for a few weeks now and I have to say this is a great resource. There is information on here which is simply not available anywhere else.
My main interest at the moment is in shoes, for two reasons:
1) I have become sick of paying £80-120 for brand name shoes which last six months before the glued-on sole peel off; and
2) I am taking delivery of my first bespoke suit (a leaving gift from a previous employer) so I need shoes, shirts, etc. of commensurate quality to wear with it.
I work in Central London so have easy access to the shops on Jermyn Street and environs. I recently bought two pairs from G. J. Cleverley in Royal Arcade.
Look forward to using the forums.
