Krish, forgot to mention it, but that Tuxedo looks absolutely awesome. I have another Tuxedo, but your pictures are really, really tempting me (I wear a tux about 10 times a year, so it would certainly get some wear).

Beyond the obvious leather and construction quality, what really won me over with Barbanera is how comfortable they wear. The higher shaped arch support makes it easy for me to wear for a long time. My brown Chets are my one shoe when traveling.

Greg, vacillating between black and burgundy - how burgundy is the burgundy? It looks pretty light in the photos, which makes me a tad concerned. Is it a burgundy that would be appropriate with darker navy, darker grey etc.?

The burgundy is a great color, not too light imo and can easily be darkened to taste with cream/polish. Would pair perfectly w navy suits imo

If it ends up being too light, darkening with black polish shouldn't be too hard if you don't mind putting in a little elbow grease.

You have said this before and I have agreed before, but I will agree again for Newc's benefit.

Having taken NMWA's sizing advice, this has not been my experience. And I am on the narrow side of D, often sizing down to C in C&J and always needing a thicker sock to take up volume in Alden's more generous lasts.

DC Dudes -

Greg and Dionisio will be in DC this Thursday for the Formosa trunk show. Last time around we went for drinks and dinner afterwards, which I think was a good time for all involved. For me, at least. So we're doing the same thing around this time at:

Sixth Engine
438 Massachusetts Avene NW (that's at the corner of 4th and Mass NW, near Judiciary Sq or Chinatown/Gallery Pl metro stops)
7 pm drinks
8 pm dinner

Hope to see many of you there.

And just to clarify, you do not need to be a Formosa customer to come hang out. All are welcome.

So just making sure about NR sizing: 50 Formosa means an L in NR if I want to be able to wear it over a suit, M if I don't.

Depends on the model I believe i.e. SB/DB vs Moscow/Biker

Oops. Yes, I meant the SB.

Looks like you will need at least XL is SB. I'm going for L and at least one size smaller vs you in Formosa from my research.

L without the arctic liner, XL with the arctic liner
