Fight!

There's also a pair of faconnable loafers in 7D and HS Trask in 7 or 7.5D that are both in good condition that I keep passing on at my favorite store inlove.gif They are $3. If either of you two wants them at cost, I will pick them up next time I hit that store if they are still available.

I'd only be interested in the HS Trasks!!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif He can have both loafers cheers.gif

+1 on the Farragamos i find their designs infinitely more interesting then the Hermes,although Hermes pays the bills better.

Agreed. I love my Ferragamo ties. The Hermes ties I've found don't hold a candle to the Ferragamos.

I dunno, Brian, the toilet lid looks long. Everything else, though, you're right.

(Lurk a while; this is a perennial debate on SF). And a good bit more waist suppression on my jacket. Then again, maybe you intend to do all of these in your alterations. Either way, the shoulders are right, and that's an important starting point.

I was intending to do all of those things icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I tend to like very little break but am not down with the whole exposed ankle trousers thing. Although If it is a hot day I will cuff my jeans a couple inches
