    Some makers offer to take shoes down half a size when they are re-crafted. I don't know whether BM offers this as it is rather rare.

    Thanks, much appreciated guys, especially since its my first post on sf. Will use insoles/see my cobbler as a short term solution, hopefully I can find a long term solution that does not spoil the shoe - will post back here then!

    If there is anyone who has similar experience please PM me or respond to this post.

    Need some opinion on these shoes, Ferragamo Tramezza, with a 70 percent discount, fits perfectly, a little bit on the fence about the white part.
    I know that pants look too long on these photos but they are good, it's just the end of day, crumpled and pose.

    There is a reason they're on sale.

    What's the take on TM Lewin and CT Shirts?
    Which one should be preferred over the other?

    Ugh, any two of those colours and they might be wearable spectators, but all three is just too much.

    For those of us who wear a suit without a tie to work, should our shirt collars be button down or not? Is either acceptable?

    I would call it personal preference. The only time I pull a button down from wardrobe is a OCBD worn casually. If opting for a dress shirt, the collar absolutely cannot be a floppy vagina

    Sorry, I just can't get on board with these if they were giving them away...they look like a pair of shoes that a costume store would give you when you rent a gangster outfit. I'm just a guy on the internet though, so go for them if you like them, just don't be blinded by the discount!

    Yes - this.

    If you would not pay full price for it, getting on sale isn't likely to result in more wears or greater enjoyment.

    details on your watch strap (and watch)?

    I don't like them, too much going on IMO.

    I'm looking for a single sided card case that isn't just plain calfskin. I don't really like the look of alligator. Does anyone have thoughts on this or buffalo leather?
