    I appreciate that, thank you. I went through (and am still undergoing) a wardrobe rebalancing over the past 15 months or so. I noticed that I had all these fancy shoes/boots that I'm pairing with trousers and jackets of a much lesser caliber.

    I realize this isn't necessarily the place but do you have a go to/favorite maker for jackets/coats?

    For me and my body type, Cesare Attolini, Orazio Luciano, and Sartoria Formosa fit me the best while hitting my list of tailoring nuance that virtually only the wearer would notice/care about. That's not to say that there aren't other tailoring houses out there that are similar or even superior...but after traveling to various trunk shows, shops, and fittings I've worn down and landed on the aforementioned. It's a major time and energy allocation, akin to finding your ideal fit in a certain shoemaker's various lasts.

    To answer your question with specifics...I highly recommend 'No Man Walks Alone' for Formosa (+so much more) and Gentlemen's Footwear for Orazio (and EG).

    Yeah. I did the same thing myself. I got into high end shoes and paired them with the crappiest close. Then started on pants and that percolated up to shirts and sportcoats. I was into suits a long time ago, but those are hard to pull off in the SoCal engineering industry.

    ^ As God is my witness, I'm yet to start "percolating" beyond socks ... :lol:

    Gorgeous. Where'd you get them from? Interested in trying a pair like that.

    These were made for Tassels Hong Kong, Unipair in South Korea, and Botique Upper Shoes in Paris.

    I believe that this was the last pair the Tassels had, Unipair seems to have a few left on their site as does Upper Shoes....

    It was always tricky for me to spot the difference between the Redwood and some lighter batches of Dark Oak .. Could be it's due to a photography and monitor ..

    Redwood is sweet. It outshines the rare shell! Come over to the dark side...

    Heck, EGs calf and the way they finish their shoes outshines Crup any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    It seems to have affected the bigger sizes (anything over UK 9.5) more so than small footed guys.

    10/10.5 E went from 12.25" x 4.25" (wooden last) to 12.5" x 4.5" (resin last)
    10/10.5D is now 12.25 x 4" (resin last)
    9.5/10.0E is now 12.25 x 4" (resin last)

    I'm guessing that 9.5/10.0F is 12.25" x 4.25"? Not willing to try, as I've tried the three sizes in resin lasts listed above, without success. I have plenty of EGs pre-resin, will ride those out for the time being...
