Great looking shoes, shah. I especially like the brown pair. It's funny to see MOMA grow in popularity when they were the shoes I wore when I first joined SF. (granted, they were split toe chukkas, but still)

I decided to say what the hell and go for it. Rather than think about what else I can/should buy, I'm going to focus on making the things I own enjoyable. It's an unstructured linen jacket, and I really just wanted the sleeves shortened at the shoulder. Then, the tailor started talking about mostly disassembling the jacket, and then have me come in for a fitting before reassembling it. She's altered a few pairs of trousers for me, and I've been happy with them. So, I'm fairly confident...
