    Guys,

    I ordered Aaran in size 10.5 UK, 11.5 US from Barneys web site and I received shoes size 11 UK. The box is marked 11E UK but Barney's sticker says 11.5 US. It looks like Barney has realized their initial one full size down conversion was wrong and now it is trying to change things but it has not got it quiet right.
    In case any of you are eyeing suede Arrans from Barney, they are on the last DG70 and they are in Polo Brown suede, ignore Barney's description that say tobbaco. Recently Dean told me that he will not offer Tobacco Suede color anymore.

    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.
