    H&M has a lot of linen sport coats during the summer for $50-$60ish IIRC

    Can you purchase them online? Can't seem to find any through Google.

    What's the consensus on having your cuffs monogrammed? Stylish or ostentatious?

    Does anyone know where to get those Felt boutonnière things? I've seen a lot of people with them and they look really neat.
    I've got a "crafty" lady on eBay making me some prototypes - I'd be happy to share the results with you when I have them, and give you her contact information. Send me a private message. -Tom-

    Does anyone know if these Brooks Brothers Peal shoes are made by C&J? http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=&sectionsize= They look so much like Belgraves to me, though I doubt they are Handgrade quality. Does anyone know if the last looks like the C&J 337? Im thinking it might be a Connaught or Hallam

    I'm wearing those shoes right now. They're quite nice.

    How does the last fit, and do you have any knowledge on the maker? If it is C&J I've heard the 240 last fits somewhat wide. Is that accurate? I generally wear 11E in AE, 11D in Alden Trubalance/Barrie and so was considering the 11.5D. They also have a free shipping deal going on, and apparently next day air is 5 dollars more.

    Ive been on a suede kick recently, I just find them so much more comfortable than leather. It feels like the suede conforms to my feet whereas the leather stays firm. Since Im using these for casual shoes I much prefer the feel of suede, though they are easy to stain.

    My rule of thumb is that for standard shoes, MSRP $488 means AS. Also the look can be deceiving due to camera angle/distance. C&J or AS?
    C&J

    Yup, it's on the 240 last. They don't feel particularly wide to me, but I'm somewhere between a 9E and a 9.5D. I suppose my feet are slightly on the wide side. These fit me well in the width, but the length is a hair long; a size 9 would be too short for me. Here's a crappy iPhone pic: [​IMG]

    D'oh!
