    Ralph Lauren Shell Cordovan "Peters" 12D

    For your consideration a pair of NIB Crockett and Jones for RL shell cordovan monk strap shoes. Size is 12D.

    How to pull off a Nehru

    I'm living in Delhi and my wife has from time to time encouraged me to get one for weddings and such. I have resisted the urge (and instead wera my native garb- the suit). They do look good in the right setting.

    Allen Edmonds vs. Alden--Which American Great Do You Prefer?!! OFFICIAL

    I have some of each brand. OK, a bunch of each. The shoo journey started with AEs at discount prices (and moved to a shell cordo) then I went to Alden for a couple of casual shoos and more shell (mostly via Leather Soul). Now I am a fan of C&J (Ralph Lauren) shell and leather shoes and Alden for...

    Basic wardrobe for Foreign Service

    Welcome to the FS. As an OMS (with aspirations to be an FSO generalist) you'll want to dress like one. Many of us dress poorly, so you'll want to look a bit better. I suggest 3 suits and 8 shirts and 2 shoes. After you have adjusted a bit, you can order via the web/ebay (once you figure your...

    MADE IN CHINA

    I think prison labor stuff would be minimum wage or better (with some "room and board" deductions). See the "Prison Blues" jeans website. Much prison labor goes into making goods that do not compete with the private sector, or go into U.S. Government GSA catalogs.

    Hickey Suit for $320 - Deal or No Deal?

    Fine staple suit for the price from the younger-hipper line of Hickey Freeman. The mainline suits can be had in the $500 range, as can many other fine full-canvas suits on the forum as cbbuff noted.

    Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Cordovan (Marlow, Darlton, Gifford, Garran, Lindrick, McCallum, Rh
