Speaking of Ferragamos Tramezzas .......
Super super excited to brag about this pickup off ebay. Would I prefer a 7.5 vs an 8, yes (beggars cant be choosers), BUT glad the seller didnt really know what he had.
"glove leather Opera Pumps have been worn many times" = more like have been worn maybe a half dozen times and are in kick ass condition
"These shoes would have originally sold for around $350" = more like $600+ but whos counting.
Best part is with a thin pad and/or thick socks these are going to work amazing for the few times I wear a Tux!!! SOO excited right now.
Only things left for my Tux are a waistcoat (impossible impossible impossible to find) and a Grosgrain bow tie which I'll prob have to have custom made (and cost more then the damn shoes) as I want a pointed end one and no one seems to make a black grosgrain pointed end bow tie
PS - Anyone have a custom bow tie made before? If so any references would be great.
Brian, I believe I've read that The Cordial Churchman (http://www.thecordialchurchman.com/) will do it, and her prices seem very reasonable. Guiseppe at An Affordable Wardrobe did a review I think.
