A few years back, I discovered a French catalog company, Cyrillus. Apparently, they expanded from producing clothes for babies and children (as did Boden, I believe). Most of their items for men are basic and conservative but also tasteful, I believe, and with lots of browns (which I used to eschew but now endorse). I did notice that some of their shoes were made in England with Goodyear welt construction. Wonder who makes them? And I do like the fact their sizing system seems more graduated. Can anyone comment on their quality or purchasing experiences? They may be a good alternative for picking up some basics.
