    I worked there, Rove looked as though he was wearing Brioni or MTM, very clean and ultra sleek, not including his average shoes

    Depends what your budget is, but yeah there are some great carmina wholecuts out there. Also have a look at the thread on Meermin shoes. Quite a bit cheaper but still very nice. Apparently they will do orders over email. I'm considering a pair MTO for my wedding next March in a black Adelaide. I think it depends a lot on the last as to whether wholecuts look good. Some are amazing, some blobby.

    I really like the look of Meermin for the price. As i am only starting building a collection it seems like a great stepping stone to some of the other shoes.

    The others on my list are
    Crockett and Jones Selbourne in Chestnut
    Carmina Brown Captoes
    And possibly a wholecut as well from someone.

    I am just about to purchase a pair of meermins so will let everyone know about the quality once i have them in my hands...

    You have an addiction, Gerry. You do. Let me help you ... by taking some of those shoes off of you.

    Very nice outfit, CD! I especially like the tie and socks! I'm impressed that you found a Hermes tie at an op shop!

    I'm digging the three-piece suits on 'Yes Minister' reruns on GEM at the moment.
