    You can get 40% quite a few shoes at Unipair at the moment on the thread. All Carmina though.

    Yeah, we talked about getting the stapes right Stitch, I think a little bit of impatience may creep in (doodles?) basics right then push it out...

    I just checked out the Edgware but I don't like them wholes in the front.

    These are all 30% plus an additional 10, I think, for VAT. The second, seventh, and eighth all would work well for you. I actually like the sixth as well.

    The only one that I like is the 3rd one from the right but it's a freaking Derby, which I am ditching.

    Why the derby hate?

    For my more business casual / casual life, it's my preferred shoe. Every shoe type has it's place.

    Stop double guessing yourself and get those dark brown Hallams...

    I wouldn't call it hate towards derbys. I just need the right shoes for my CBD suits and they're oxfords so I despise the derbys that I have. Total boneheaded move that I did before joining SF.

    Clags you know what last/size I should take of those models? I wear 8.5UK Meermin Hiro pretty well, could stand to be a touch narrower or lower instep even. Any particular models you think would hit my style well?

    Sorry I am all over the place. But just want to point out what a great tailor can do to RTW pants.

    Not only is Will the best but he will actually talk to you and I always get educated on something.
    I can't wait to work on a bespoke suit with him.
