    Gents, I screwed up today at Azzarro, and maybe one of you can benefit from it.

    I bought a lovely Cantarelli suit there, a 50R drop 6. Like a fool, I measured the pants but didn't try them on - long wait for the "change room". Turned out when I get home that the rise is a 1-2" shorter than my usual, and the pants sit more around my hips than waist, and are never going to fit.

    They are a bit slim cut, and so are too tight in the thighs for my son, who looked otherwise perfect in it.

    I hate to take it back, and am not even sure Azzarro take returns. It's a gorgeous solid blue, really nice. Price marked 3740, happy to let it go a bit below my cost, say 750. If anyone's keen, can do measurements and pics.

    (Forgive my using the thread for sales, btw).

    Where did you get those Lindricks; they are AWESOEMOSDOAJSPODJADPOJ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p
    And guys I'm looking to pickup these from Meermin: http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1958
    And I'm wondering for those who have brought from them; do they take paypal, what's there usual shipping time to Aus and do they sell shoe trees if you ask? And if no on the shoe trees where can I get some which fit?
    P.S.
    Sorry I'm absolute nub to quality dress shoes; first pair (woot!) and any first timers tips pls. Oh and thanks for your thoughts on summer sneakers I think I'll go for the supergas.

    Thanks
    Yours Faithfully

    Yep they take PayPal and sell shoe trees, they are on the site. Shipping can vary greatly, depends on a lot o factors. Best to ask them, but you need to be patient with the emails. Especially at present with the European holidays.

    I don't think Meermin have their trees on their website, but there are some photos discoverable with google:

    I work right near there so checked it out today.

    It doesn't look like it's open yet. There's no signage up or anything, and the only hint is that the paper covering the windows is illustrated with a wooden last motif.

    I'm curious now, though! I can't afford Cleverly prices, but I'm guessing the vast majority of Melbourne can't either, so hopefully they have a wider range. Melbourne needs a good, dedicated shoe shop that doesn't consider Loake the pinnacle of British shoemaking.

    Beggar Man Thief outlet in the Sth Melb Market has a few Grensons in stock for 220. A pair of dk brown boots, and a couple of pairs of loafers. In size 10 IIRC. Stilll a few Loake 1880s there for 250, as well.

    I was so relieved they didn't have a 10 in stock. The Lindricks are fantastic, wear them in good health. I'm trying to track down a pair of the Marlow penny loafers, cordovan pennies sound just right for my spring footwear purchase.

    Bugger ... yes those Cantarellis do have a low rise. If it's only 1" too short and if there's enough length in the leg could it be altered? I can wear a 50R in Cantarellis but need to give the wallet a rest...

    Got them via a SF user. They definitely are awesome. I wore them on the day I got them and can't wait to wear them again!
