    I did not manage to show that restraint. Warwicks will soon be on the way to me.

    Thanks guys!

    I'm definitely not the real Brioni, although after doing a little shopping yesterday I'm a total sucker for anything Brioni, Kiton, and Hermes :uhoh:

    I picked up:

    Navy Brioni suede, leather type material short jacket

    Kiton light grey dress pants, Kiton pants are most detail oriented pants I have ever seen in my life. Insanity.

    2 Brioni sport shirts to wear with recently acquired black Kiton jeans

    Loro Piana 85% cashmere 15% silk sweater in some blueish shade.

    Hermes tie

    Hermes pocket square - gorgeous detailing!

    Hermes leather belt in "etoup" greyish/taupish leather on one side and black on the other with "H" belt in orange/silver enamel. I know these belts aren't SF approved, but I love them and own every color combo of the straps that were made in the last 8 years.

    I will do my best with pictures a bit later, just a warning my photography skills are not up to par with the rest of the SF world

    Guys, I ordered a pair of Bisrittz in size 9.5UK/10US. 1/2 size too big and I will be sending them back January 25 unless anyone here is interested. Please PM me if you are.

    Wear them in good health

    Hi. Nick

    My pair is 5.5E. MH71. I have a high instep so heel to instep are snag. Ball joint part was comfortable and now is a little bit roomier. I am trying DIY cut half leather insole, which seems to work well without compromising overall fit of the shoes.

    I have Hove on the same last and I feel those looser than St. James. My concern is if I go down to D width, my instep would not fit well.

    Until Nick replies,

    I pretty sure this is Burnham and the color I think is Vintage Cedar.

    I hope Burnham in expresso on MH71 will be part of the non-fee MTO monthly program.
