Hi All


Short term lurker here who really appreciates the tips/advice lush in this forum!


I am upgrading my wardrobe for a consulting gig and I am looking for classic but fashion-forward pieces to really upgrade  my style. I live in brussels and will spend 10 days during late August in Madrid as part of my vacation; I am looking for advice on shoes, shirts and shoes.



I bought a few pairs of churchs custom grade on deep discount 50%, and I am excited to pick up a pair each of Paul Evans and Carmina shoes. Any other mid-point (300-400) euro shoe maufacturers that I should check out in my backyard or in Madrid? I am way too excited to go check out Carmina already to see their lasts in person


Suits and Shirts:

I am athletic build, 36 in chest 30 waist, looking for slim fit suits and shirts. I would like to check the sale rack, but I am also very keen on bespoke as well, looking for half canvas super 100 wool and two ply cotton respectively. Any recommendation for tailors to check with a good tradeoff on price/quality in brussels or Madrid? Looking for shirts <100 euro and bespoke suit at the ~500 euro price point 


This is my first post here! I am looking forward to any recommendations that fit my descriptions above, and any advice is much appreciated!
