    Sargent for BB/Peal plain-to bluchers (shoes).

    Ah - it's surprisingly hard to get a reasonably sleek brown PTB on the cheap these days. There's Vass or EG, but I don't see anything from the mid tier makers.

    I shouldn't technically be in this thread, as my workplace doesn't by any means require CBD. But anyway:

    They're really great shoes, I have a pair. Nice leather, channeled soles. The last fits me nicely. I was lucky enough to get them on clearance off BB for <$200, but they no longer appear to sell them. Was my first nice pair of shoes, picked a good one I guess.

    RTW Liverano again? I like it overall, but I feel the jacket looks long on you. Fabric has a nice texture. I've never quite liked those textured shirtings though.

    Thanks. It's partenopea. I agree the coat looks too long and actually feels slightly long when I wear it, but I've tried shorter and found if I have too much waist suppression or go too short, because I have disproportionately large hips and upper legs and the coat rests/funny flares out. That said it is too long and could lose 1/4-.5". I'm on the fence with the textured shirtings. This one isn't my favorite but I bought it so I figured Id wear it - I do like the collar.

    That tie is the shiznit. Nice knot too. I feel your pain about the rain, most days I can't take pictures outside because of the rain.

    Havent seenm the actual pic of ndw, but liverano rtw is styled like liverano bespoke a la florentine...very wide, rounded quarters and no divots...ehh, fron darts (so can be easily distinguideshed fromn partenopea and other pseudo neapolitans).
    I think it's made by Belvest, but I am not sure, although I tried on some rtw items.
