You're dying to go to Naples, but couldn't care less about seeing Capri or the ruins of Pompeii.

It never entered your head to visit Budapest until you learned about Vass bespoke, and now you've already bought tickets.

EXACTLY!

You try to look as if your not staring at shoes, even pretending to read a newspaper.
Ha ha, I am subconsciously doing this all the time in London. On the tube, on the bus, in the park, at the pub, walking around. It is almost like breathing now, I don't notice I'm doing it until I see someone wearing nice shoes.

When your female acquaintances notice you look at men to size up the fit of their clothes instead of women. This happened to me with my cousin and a female coworker.

Sadly, I went to London to check out Savile Row and Jermyn Street.

When you start organizing shopping trips abroad under false pretense...

The same rule applies to business trips when changed/cancelled appointments to satisfy sartorial urges.

I remember spending more time in Venice looking for some Kiton or bespoke tailors than visiting the city itself...

The same in Paris ,Rome or Florence...

  • Your heaven is owning the clothes of the elite; your hell is knowing no one who will appreciate it.
  • Valuable antique furniture tossed out to make room for more new particle board shelving.
  • Wardrobe is so large, it's become impossible to wear anything more than twice per year.
  • You bought it, put it on, took it off, and put it back in the box/package to make it new again.
  • You dress like James Bond for supermarket excursions.
  • Buying one of anything in each available color or finish is standard procedure.
  • Friends have stopped threatening to beat you with your new belt because you consider it teasing.
  • You've antiqued all your shoes. Why not your own toes?!
  • You've stopped going out beacause that money could be better spent on more clothes.
  • Wardrobe room is immaculate - rest of home, a pig sty.

Truer than you'd think. When I went to Europe for my honeymoon I booked in a week in London, and spent half my time on Jermyn St.
