Some one please convince me why I should/shouldn't buy these shoes.
Looks like quite a few gents did some shopping over the weekend.
I miraculously came across a few Canali's in the correct size (46R), and God Forbid, the fit was spot on. Other than cuffing and letting out the trousers by 1 cm (moi= big ass with small but tall frame), no other adjustments required. The fabric is difficult to find on OTR, a navy/blue melange with a non-shiny/matte, dry soft hand. Another fabric is a light grey with skyblue pinstripes, also with a non-shiny dry soft hand.
Small gripes= button stance a bit too high, plasticky buttons, and button holes are machined. Other than the button stance, these can easily be rectified by our alterations tailor in Hong Kong.
Yay, no need to go through the hassles of bespoke in HK later in the year, so more time can be spent with family and friends.
Very funny. Online fora can be like that. It's a bit like having a fantasy life - or it might be seen like that.
Would being a member of a style forum be a bit of a 'mark-down', I wonder! How do members explain it to their wives..I explain
that it is more of a Suitably Connected thing..
