The post by @emptym made me want to mention: the Lesca sunglasses are very, very nice. IMO, in a class of their own. While I'm not much of a sunglasses guy, I've handled numerous sunglasses over the years - and these are in a class of their own. For the price, and provided you can find a frame that works for you, they are a no-brainer.
Agreed. Been wearing the "ready when you are" all year. I've got the Gaston's as well which are really beautiful (wish they came in a smaller size). APC's, t shirt and Lesca's kind of my summer uniform.
Yeah, they're so nice. I have the dark brown Gaston sunglasses and Pica horn classes. The ones I lost were clear framed Gaston sunglasses. The brown Gastons look a bit big on me but the clear ones looked perfect. They were my favorites for everything but driving. Because the frames were so thick, it almost felt like looking through a glass tunnel, and that could cause weird reflections that were fine while walking but a bit distracting while driving.

Still feeling a little burned from the loss, so I'm wondering if I should get a new pair or something cheaper. Might try to sell some barely used US-made, Bausch & Lomb era Rayban aviators and some RL PL foldable sunglasses to put towards some replacement Lescas -- they're that nice. Of course, they may still turn up somewhere. After walking back from the restaurant, I watched my kids while they were riding bicycles on our street. And I might have worn them when dropping them off at school the next day. I realized I was missing them when leaving to pick them up.

What’s a quick sizing reference again for the loafers? Like against an Alden Barrie, TTS, etc.

It's worth checking if you have some sort of loss insurance through your credit card or homeowner insurance

TTS Euro sizing. Same as your F last Vass for example

Looking marvelous, gents. About how much extra cloth is there in the jacket sleeves and the trouser waists to let out?

The pants waist seems atypical (smaller) for the sizes.

Looks like a drop 7, which works for me. Size 50R should fit me pretty well off the rack.
